First Lady Sues Her Own Dress Designer

Jason Wu, World Famous Fashion Designer
Washington DC. Nov 20, 2010. First Lady Michelle Obama, has sued her own dress designer Jason Wu for "making my ass look fat." 

The lawsuit was filed late yesterday afternoon in the DC Superior Court. The suit had to be filed in the Superior Court due to the size of the claim involved. 

Mrs. Obama is seeking $44 million in direct damages, plus another $88 million for pain and suffering.

Mr. Wu, speaking through his attorney David L. Liebowitz told us "There is absolutely no basis for this lawsuit. I am a designer, not a miracle worker. What you see is pretty much what you get."
This dress was entered into evidence
In her lawsuit Mrs. Obama has accused the world famous designer of "intentionally selecting styles, colors and fabrics" for her dresses that "accentuate my large buttocks and thick waist" according to the suit.

According to Mr. Liebowitz, of the DC firm Campbell, Ross, Thompson and Liebowitz,  "This is clearly a frivolous lawsuit. We are confident it will be dismissed once a judge sees how weak these allegations are."

Mr. Liebowitz went on to say "Perhaps if Mrs. Obama visited those salad bars a little more often, she wouldn't have this problem."

Mr. Liebowitz was not so tactfully referring to Mrs. Obamas newest project to "install salad bars in America's public schools to encourage healthy eating." 

First Lady Michelle Obama is expected to announce on Monday a major new initiative that would place up to 5,000 salad bars in public schools nationwide, despite uncertainties over how local health inspectors might treat those salad bars and USDA nutrition-tracking rules that could prove a major impediment.

Another poor design choice by Mr. Wu
Critics have suggested that Mrs. Obama's extra girth could make her plan seem hypocritical. So this lawsuit may be an attempt to blunt that criticism by blaming it on her dress designer.

There is also some controversy regarding President Obama's close ties to Whole Foods Inc.

Whole Foods was a major corporate sponsor of the Obama 2008 election campaign, and is very likely to benefit from Mrs. Obama's salad bar initiative, since they are a major food supplier for public schools on the west coast.
