Michelle Obama blasted for wearing expensive dress to state dinner

michelle-obama-state dressConservatives and Republicans lost their minds when first lady Michelle Obama had the audacity to wear a $12,000 couture frock to the state dinner at the White House with President Obama and distinguished guest French President Francois Hollande on Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014.

Mostly, Obama haters took almost fiendish delight in pointing out that her dinner gown price tag was more than the U.S. poverty level, as one troll pointed out.

What do you think about Mrs. Obama’s dress and especially the bellyaching from the right wing?
