Michelle Obama Can Kick Your Ass


Feeling pleased with your morning run or cardio stroll? Well here’s a reminder that Michelle Obama, who was already likely to be crushing you in most parts of your life, rules when it comes to the exercise game.  

In a new video posted to her @FLOTUS account, the first lady responded to the president’s #GimmeFive challenge by showing off her fierce workout skills—boxing, lifting, and jumping rope. 

So thanks for the assist Lebron, but this glimpse into Obama’s workout proves once again the first lady can hold court all on her own.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
