I'm sure if Mrs. Obama wore some dress on sale from Macy's people would just grouch that she was too frumpy. They certainly never gave it a rest about Mrs. Clinton.

Yep. This. I can just hear the complaints ... "She's representing the United States of America at a formal dinner amongst heads of state in a tacky clearance dress??? How dare she?!?!"

What kind of a pastor calls someone "ugly" and tells them they need plastic surgery?

As black folks in my neck of the woods say, this man is being messy!

I guess you ignored my post. I never had a word to say about Mrs. Regan's clothes. She was a pretty woman with a petite figure. She wore it well.

However, not all U.S. first ladies are interested in fashion. Examples in my lifetime - Roslyn Carter (D) Barbara Bush (R) Hilary Clinton (D) and Laura Bush (R). They were always presentable, but not fashion plates by any means. Sometimes each was criticized for being "drab" or "dowdy".

That's wrong also.

I never had a bit of criticism towards Nancy Reagan clothes, and at times, I defended her.

While I did not agree with much of her husband's politics, I liked her style. So there!

We don't elect The First Lady or the First Children. I think that discussions and critiques of their appearance should be "off the table". We should ALL be protective of these people, and as Americans and decent human beings should not make fun of the appearances of teenaged girls or criticize and speculate about the sexuality of "The First Son".

So, no hypocrisy here.

Forget her wardrobe. Now we know she must spend a lot on wigs. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

That was evident last evening to those of us who are Jeopardy! fans. As I said, there's nothing wrong with wearing wigs, but she must have an extensive wardrobe of them.

I googled to figure out what you're talking about. She's not bald, she had her hair pulled severely back. And that, along with stark lighting, made it look like she has no hair.

I didn't say she was bald, but on Jeopardy! (not according to a newspaper account) viewers could clearly see her scalp. Her hair is thin, and wasn't simply pulled back.

I think her wigs are flattering and beautiful, but I didn't like this look. I thought it was severe.

Yes, it was simply pulled back. She might sometimes use hairpieces to add fullness (especially for formal events), but I don't believe she wears wigs.
