Michelle Obama to kids with cancer: Living in the White House ‘can be hard’

Even by Michelle Obama standards, whining to a bunch of kids with cancer about how tough it is to be first lady is a class apart.

Obama’s latest Marie Antoinette moment came during a question-and-answer session at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn, a place where doctors struggle daily to find cures for diseases that are killing young patients — and families pray fervently that they succeed.

One questioner asked her favorite about being first lady, according to the Weekly Standard. She tried to answer diplomatically, but class will tell.

She said she enjoys outings like the visit to St. Jude’s “because sometimes living in the White House and being married to the president and trying to live a life like that, it can be hard,” Obama said.

“But when I meet you guys, I am so inspired, which is one of the reasons why I like to come and spend time with you guys.”

Seriously, Mrs. Obama has it rough.

And look at her audience:

They don’t have to go to Hawaii with their family over the holidays — then get an extra 10 days of alone time on a sun-kissed beach.

They don’t have to spend springtime in China on the taxpayer dime, just to scratch the Terra Cotta Army off their bucket list.

They don’t even have to go to Martha’s Vineyard for two weeks in August to rub elbows and champagne glasses with the rich and liberal.

All they have to do is wait around the hospital in Memphis, Tenn., for celebrities like Michelle Obama to show up (an hour-and-a-half-late), enjoy the frisson of  another family’s devastating misfortune, and whine about how hard it is to live a life of absolute splendor — where every physical desire is gratified gratis by a staff of taxpayer-funded attendants.

All they have to do is pray for a cure – or die trying.

Michelle Obama tells them it can be hard living in the White House?

It is to weep.
