Michelle Obama is not the most admired women she is the most hated. Remember the polls also showed Hillary was the winner too.

Michelle Obama is a thief and stole millions of dollars from a non for profit hospital, she is also an American hater and tried to start a black hate group against whites at her college but luckily the other black women wouldn't have anything to do with her.
She attended a church of haters against white people and America but of course when she came in and polluted our white house she tried to shove it under the rug and play the woe is me card.

He must not have heard of the rule that says that 1% of the funding for any Public Building Project in Kansas City has to be pissed away on some sort of incomprehensibly obscure horseshit a Commission (or better, Narrenschiff) of "Experts" deems to be "Art"!
