I’m not one to watch the Oscars or any other award show – Hollywood, actors and musical “artists” hold no particular fascination for me. I could not however help but be drawn to a photo from the White House of First Lady Michelle Obama’s appearance last night.
The image is interesting in that standing behind FLOTUS are a number of active duty military members who apparently served as props for what was nothing more than a PR appearance. In her commentary announcing the winner of Best Picture, Obama failed to acknowledge the men and women behind her or even the military as a whole.
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised by the disgraceful use of our military as a prop. President Barack Obama used children as props in recent weeks to appeal for gun control measures. Clearly this White House has no problem taking advantage of others to put a pretty face on the disastrous administration.
