President Obama defended the first lady's recent 1,700-calorie meal at Shake Shack that incited cries of "hypocrite" from the national media. Said Obama, "Michelle doesn't take that [criticism] too seriously... Michelle's never hid the fact that her favorite food is french fries, or that she's going to have a burger once in a while. The whole point that she's been making — which is common sense, and so this should be a non-issue — is how do we make sure that our kids, in particular, have balanced meals on a regular basis?"
