Baio ran an unflattering picture of First Lady Michelle Obama with the caption, “WOW He wakes up to this every morning.”
After receiving tons of negative response, including death threats, Baio pleaded with his Twitter audience to give him a break since he was just joking. In October, Baio called President Obama “a loser” via Twitter.
Baio even tried a I-can’t be-a-racist-cause-my-wife’s-friend-is-black post.
MICHELLE OBAMA “MONKEY PICTURE”
An incredibly offensive, racist, photoshopped image that morphed a picture of first lady Michelle Obama into the face of an ape made the rounds on the Internet yesterday with lighting quickess and embroiled Google in controversy.
The term “Michelle Obama monkey” became the number one Google search in the U.S. yesterday after word of the picture spread across the Internet. Google originally refused to take down the image then ran a disclaimer (see below) apologizing for the picture before removing it from their search engine entirely.
FORMER NEW YORK MAYOR RUDY GIULIANI
Page Six of the New York Post reports that former mayor Rudy Giuliani was kicked out of his primo complimentary seats by the New York Yankees for Game One of the World Series. Worse, Giuliani, a Republican, was reportedly booted so that the Yankees could give his seat to Michelle Obama.
The Post quotes a “White House source” as saying the First Lady didn’t want to sit near Giuliani. Because of pouring rain, Mrs. Obama ended up not even attending the game.
Madame Tussauds museum says it will soon unveil a wax statue of U.S. first lady Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama joins Jacqueline Kennedy and Hillary Clinton as the only first ladies ever to have their own wax statues displayed.

President elect Barack Obama has bought his wife a $30,000 ring for the presidential inauguration. The ring is reportedly Obama’s way of telling wife Michelle “thank you” for her support during the election.
The diamond-encrusted ring is reportedly made of black gold and rhodium (which at $4,000 an ounce is the world’s most expensive metal.) It is being made by Italian designer Giovanni Bosco.
BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA
“RECEIPT” CLAIMING MICHELLE OBAMA ORDERED LOBSTER AND IRANIAN CAVIAR AT THE WALDORF ASTORIA IS A FAKENovember 4, 2008
The website www.politifact.com has determined that the chain e-mail going around that claims the wife of presidential candidate Barack Obama ordered lobster and Iranian caviar at New York’s Waldorf Astoria hotel is a complete fake.
On the “truth-o-meter” section of their website, Politifact says the story is based on a false New York Post item that was later retracted. The e-mail claims to show a receipt signed by Michelle Obama. It’s a fake. She was in Fort Wayne, Indiana campaigning the day of the alleged receipt. Politifact says the lobster-and-caviar claims are such a lie it rates a “Pants-on-Fire” rating on the “truth-o-meter.”
