Michelle Obama in a Half Shirt?

INTO THE DEEP END, TIPS FROM THE POOL

images-2

On Sunday, Chris Johnson, chief political and White House reporter for The Blade, was the victim of his autocorrect when he wrote that first lady Michelle Obama was wearing something called a “Purple halfway.”

Exact quote: “Accompanying him on his left was FLOTUS, wearing Purple halfway and purple skirt. Malia and Sasha are with him. Pool is following POTUS on route to church.”

Ahem, to church no less.

Of course, FLOTUS was not wearing a shirt that exposed her midriff. “Typo,” he told FBDC, explaining that he meant “jacket.” In a later Pool Report, he wrote, “That ‘purple halfway’ FLOTUS is wearing in 1st report was typo thanks to autocorrect. Should be ‘purple jacket.’”

Phew!
