Michelle Obama Dons a $6,800 Jacket: Does it Offend You When the First Lady Wears Expensive Clothes?

Michelle Obama wore an exquisite J. Mendel cap sleeve jacket to the London Olympics reception -- and there's no denying it's gorgeous -- but there is some controversy over the price: $6,800. Check out the dud... and the critical reactions in the video below!

It almost seems like the First Lady can't win because she has also been criticized for wearing "cheap" clothing, but that seems to be the status quo for females in the political world. When you see the First Lady (any First Lady) wearing expensive clothes like this, does it seem like she's flaunting her wealth like some claim. Does it offend you? Or does it go with the territory of being married to the President of the United States?

Move over, Ann Romney. It looks like you’ve been outspent in the wardrobe department by First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama.

    Only because the left made such a huge deal over Ann Romney's clothes and even Sarah Palin's.

    As long as the tax payers did not foot the bill I could not care less what she wears.

    She's headed to Buckingham Palace- I'd want to look nice, too.
  • Lawnmow... missdeej17 2012/08/04 02:39:27
    Just think of what Obama's brother could have done with $6,800.

    Whether I agree with their politics or not, I think it important that the First Lady of the United States of America be well and appropriately dressed for such occasions.

    Michele Obama wears a variety of clothes at differing prices. I really don't care how much she spends on her clothes because she can afford everything she wears. I think it's silly to worry about that and to see in the news one day that her outfit was too casual and the next that it is too expensive. I have better things to worry about.
  • granny 2012/08/02 21:17:26
    this woman just offends me period!!!!!
  • NKULE granny 2012/08/03 09:58:55
  • granny NKULE 2012/08/06 14:44:22
    becuz she disrespects the American flag & people...people are out there w/out jobs, food & things needed daily & she wears something that expensive? I realize she can do whatever she wants but I have NO respect for her or her husband...just my opinion!!!
  • cynsity 2012/08/02 20:52:55
    as long as she used her own money to buy it and not tax payer money she can don what ever the heck she wants just like we all can.
  • Kodibear 2012/08/02 20:24:04
    It offends me because she's a hypocrite after they crucified Sarah Palin over her wardrobe. Don't forget to ad in the cost of the trip over there + security. What? Maybe 500,000 bucks WE were charged? No problem pocket change for the Royal Mistress.
  • Royo 2012/08/02 19:38:57
    Who cares? If she wants to buy something, then go ahead! Jeez!
  • SunnyOne 2012/08/02 18:16:07
    If she had worn cheap clothing while meeting with royalty, the Teabaggers would have attacked her for making the U.S. look bad.

    Speaking of looking bad, for a filthy rich woman, Ann Romney sure has bad taste in clothes.
    Check out her $990 silk t-shirt:

  • Budge SunnyOne 2012/08/02 22:12:41
    But she has the right to spend as much as she wants on tacky clothes because she can afford it..

    So does Mrs. Obama; she has her own personal money, she was and stll is wealthy.
  • sandra.hemmes 2012/08/02 18:00:53
    Mrs. Obama has horrible taste in clothes. No matter how much it costs, it is too much. She picks out horrible styles, and does not dress appropriately being a President's Wife of the United States. I am a professional seamstress and I see some of her clothes styles in the pattern books at the fabric stores. She should try to eminate well dressed other First Ladies. Does she not take advisement from the Presidential staff.?
  • Kodibear sandra.... 2012/08/02 20:27:34
    "SHE" doesn't take advice from anybody, except Valerie Jarrett. What is that? So does "HE". menage a trois?
  • rknothead 2012/08/02 17:56:24
    Considering that the only job she's had is through tax payer's dollars, yes it's offensive to me. If she earned it on her own, then she can buy what she wants.
  • Frannin 2012/08/02 17:29:17
    Dear Michelle...damned if you do, damned if you don't. You can't win, Girl. Personally,
    I thought you looked lovely in that outfit and was proud of the way you represented the
    United States of America. Thanks for all you do for us and our country.
  • sandra.... Frannin 2012/08/02 18:02:33
    Your taste is in your mouth.
  • Lawnmow... Frannin 2012/08/04 02:42:43
    Yeah, now that she's finally proud of it..
  • Claybern 2012/08/02 16:39:07
    She could have spent $800.00 on a coat and donated $6,000.00 to help feed the hungry in this country.
  • Mikado ... Claybern 2012/08/04 22:44:16
    Mikado Hikyuu
    She has been doing healthy eating tip videos for children on the Disney channel for YEARS now, and has gone on talk shows like The View, and spoken at schools all over America promoting health AND has been a fund raiser for children's education AND children's school lunch programs ever since the Obamas came into office. So what have YOU done to feed the hungry that you feel you can criticize her?
  • Claybern Mikado ... 2012/08/09 03:39:42
    I did not criticize her. I just said if she has that kind of money she should donate all she can to help feed the hungry.
  • right-choice 2012/08/02 16:30:38
    She is Just pure Offensive, She hates America, Hates God, againsts Whites, Showed Her true colors durning Obamas campaigns with Clinton then McCains, They finally told Her to stop talking and hid Her from the public for a while.
  • Dana right-c... 2012/08/02 20:25:45
    Are you nuts or just plain the most stupid man in America? None of what you posted is true... none of it.
  • NUCKLED... Dana 2012/08/03 08:04:02
    What do you get from her "this is the first time I am proud of America" . She said those words right after her husband became president.
  • Dana NUCKLED... 2012/08/03 17:38:27
  • Lawnmow... Dana 2012/08/04 02:50:28 (edited)
    How about the VIDEO of her asking the big B-O; "...all THIS for a damned FLAG?" during the 9/11 Memorial Ceremony watching as the Color Guard folded the flag into a triangular shape, according to custom. Does that sound like an American talking?
