Earlier today Michelle Obama gave us the heart-wrenching story about Sasha Obama at four months old and the fear she had meningitis, only to find out she didn't have meningitis. According to the New York Times, certainly not a racist right-wing organ:
In her speech, Mrs. Obama also told the story of how her daughter Sasha would not stop crying when she was 4 months old. A doctor’s visit revealed she might have meningitis; she ultimately did not, but the illness produced a scare.Obviously a good thing the kid didn't have meningitis.
However, as an sharp-eyed Just a Grunt alerted me to, just last Thursday, Mrs. Obama's husband told a completely different story. Pay attention at the 2:40 mark.
He clearly says "when our youngest daughter Sasha was diagnosed with meningitis at three months old".
OK now, so today Mrs. Obama says she was four months old but fortunately did not have meningitis. Yet just eight days ago her husband said she was three months old and was diagnosed with meningitis.
Who are we to believe? I know the Obamas detest our medical profession, but can they please provide us with the medical diagnosis so we can sort out the truth? I know, I know, this is racist for me to ask, but since this was only seven or eight years ago, I'm sure these records are still on file, so we ask the Obamas to please provide the public with the medical records so we can get to the bottom of this mystery. It's pretty simple. Your daughter either was diagnosed with meningitis or she wasn't. If she was, one of you are lying. If she wasn't, one of you are lying.
Please clear this up for us. No doubt on one of the five news shows Barack is appearing on Sunday someone will ask for a clarification, right?
I distinctly recall the Obamas begging the media to not exploit their children all the while they were exploiting their children. Well, now that they've clearly been caught in contradictory tales, we ask that they please clarify for the public their latest tale told while exploiting their daughter.
Otherwise I might get to thinking they're making things up while exploiting their child.
