Obama: Don't Get 'Between Michelle and a Tamale'

New, 4 comments

Thursday night President Obama celebrated Cinco de Mayo and he gave a short speech on Mexican and Latino issues. Following the "renowned fruit and vegetable enthusiast" joke from over the weekend, he took even more playful jabs at First Lady Michelle Obama, joking that, "You do not want to be between Michelle and a tamale."

The transcript:

I asked Michelle the other day, I said, what's your favorite food, because we were sitting around with the girls. She said, oh, Mexican food. That's — You do not want to be between Michelle and a tamale... That is true. That's true. But she's moving, though, so she can afford to have as many tamales as she wants.
