I'd have a heart attack, too, if I had to visit my family.

RIP John.

I'm too young to know of him as a director but I loved his movies, especially the breakfast club. RIP

16. Mrs. Obama, the First Lady looks terrible here. She is a representation of the country and her husband"s office. I wish she would look a little more First Lady when out in public. She is dressed like a woman who would be shopping at the farmer's market, but she is more than that... if she wants to dress down fine, but at least do your hair as it looks awful pulled back like it is in this footage.

HEY DUMB ASS, THIS IS ABOUT JOHN HUGHES DYING. NOT THE FIRST LADY, NOW I HAVE TO INSULT YOU FOR BEING A DUMB ASS. YOUR MOTHER LOOKS A LOT WORSE IN PUBLIC AND AT HOME, THAT'S WHY I MAKE HER LIVE IN THE BASEMENT.
