Michelle Obama 9/11/11: What Did She Say About the American Flag? All That for a Flag? Video

The video below is a few minutes of the the ceremonies at Ground Zero on 9/11/11. It shows the ceremonial folding of  a flag believed to have survived the attacks of September 11, 2001. Blogger, One Old Vet has reduced the 5 hour CSPAN video down to just a few minutes. As the flag is folded, a camera cuts to Michelle and Barack Obama. Michelle leans toward Barack, and says something to him. Al Ash, writing at One Old Vet, believes Michelle is saying “all that for a flag.” I have no lip-reading skills, but it does appear she is saying something about the flag, and it is obvious when she shakes her head side-to-side and blinks (eye roll?) that whatever she said, it wasn’t favorable to what was going on in front of her. So take a look at the video below, which shows it over several times, and tell me what you think. Visit One Old Vet to see the original video and read the original post and comments for more conversation. See an update below.

9-15-11 UPDATE: ChicagoRay just sent a link to The Blaze with Glenn Beck and his crew talking about the video this morning. Beck thinks Michelle is saying something derogatory, but an intern on his show is deaf and reads lips. He believes she is saying “Look how they fold that flag.” I can see the word “that” as being a part of what she says, and if that is what she is saying, the head-shaking takes on a different tone. The intern also allowed that perhaps the word “damn” would have been in her comment, although he thought there was only a slight chance of that.

  • I posted this, too. I think she’s saying, “all this for f’ing flag?” The fact that she felt it necessary to say anything at all during a solemn ceremony is classless. Is she really so stupid as to think cameras are not on her all the time? There is no other first woman of the USA who has had as many (most, really) unflattering photos taken of her.

    Please make them both go away!

    • Agreed! A lip reader needs to do this one. What a bitch this Michelle is and very rude. In all my adult life I have never seen worse than those two idiots. What a privilege they had but as God’s words says: Jeremiah 17:6
      For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not …

      FYI about Heath in the free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. … cultivation; “the barrens of central Africa”; “the trackless wastes of the desert” …
      Does Africa ring a bell here? HELLO!

      • Dissento

        I doubt Christ would approve of calling someone an “bitch” and an “idiot”

        • BTW: I don’t care what you doubt or think. . . when someone is rude and evil I’ll call them what I choose! Christ could discern who was of the devil and he said so.

          John/8-44
          “For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, … “►

          So take your ‘goody two shoes’ and go jump.

            You self-righteous asshole…quoting scripture and hateful speech in the same paragraph. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. Dipshit. Sometimes, I hate the internet, because it gives morons like you a chance to spout your bullshit all over everyone else. I think Wal-Mart is having a sale, you better get down there you piece of trash.

            • caligula

              Why do you think saving money at Wal Mart is an insult? liberals are weird.

              • For some stinking reason, which makes no logic, those kind of people just say anything that comes to their empty headed mind. No need to dignify them with an answer or question. A pure waste of time.

            • Lon

              Aren’t you just a little bit of a hypocritical calling someone self-righteous for their comments and then adding nasty name calling yourself? And the Wal-Mart comment was the depths of a juvinile response, and yes, moronic. Something my adolescent students used to say when criticizing anothers clothing. I may not agree with your comments, but I will defend to the death your right to make them.

        • Mick Russom

          Yes, I agree, that calling out Satan’s minions, such as the Obamas, that any vile name be appropriate for those who serve Satan. We cast stones at the vile acolytes of Satan and stand with pride as true allies of God, Truth and Freedom. Just like Goebbels, Satan’s minions weave webs of lies, moral equivalency and false truths to make what is right wrong and wrong right.

  • jo

    Ditto what Adrienne said!

  • I believe Adrienne has it. My take also lip reads the big potty word. Jacka$$e$ both.

    Again the Obama clan disparages and disgraces this country, it’s sacred symbols and everything we stand for Maggie. Thanks for the ht 😉

    Glad to see you all posted this, the MSM hasn’t touched it YET nor have any of the conservative so called big dogs as usual, even though it’s a stake through the heart of his re election and any remaining dignity this rancid Bi*** has left.

  • Chicagoray

    PS Maggie, I just posted this link on FB friend WND’s Jerome Corsi’s wall, hopefully he gives it a look see 😉

  • It really doesn’t matter what she said but how she said it…
    We all know that both Obama and his wife do not like the American flag or anything it stands for…they have both displayed their disgust for America in the past and that same digusting expression is again the most revealing facet of the video…it is further enhanced by Obama’s nodding approval…
    Look again at Michelle’s ‘tsk, tsk, tsk’ look as she completes the word flag… this expression/vocal expression combination is one of hate and certainly displeasure in an event that they would rather be someplace else…
