First lady Michelle Obama is known for pushing healthy eating and exercise but at a campaign stop last Thursday she was all about pies. One apple and one sour cherry pie, to be precise.
The first lady made an unannounced stop at Mom’s Apple Pie Co., a family-owned bakery in Occoquan, a small town about 23 miles southwest of the White House, ABC News reports.
Six-year-old Sydney Trapp happened to be in the shop and serenaded Mrs. Obama with “Ode to Joy” on her violin.

I’m willing to make the claim that Mrs. O’s beautifully colorblocked pink and mint outfit will get you “re-pinned” on Pinterest, so go share.

This weekend, President Obama took a beating for declaring the private sector “fine.” But he was correct. The real jobs crisis is in the public sector, and Obama’s the only one with a plan to fix it. Turns out, that’s also the only real plan to deal with black joblessness.
Fewer than 2% of all pending deportation cases (411,000 of them) have been stopped despite reviews.
