Best Picture Oscar

First Lady

NOT First to Know

0225_michelle_obama

It's a good bet Michelle Obama was not the first person to open the envelope for Best Picture ... and she may not have been the second, third or fourth. 

It is inconceivable an envelope from the outside world could end up in the White House, in the First Lady's hands, without a thorough, inside-and-out inspection. 

The upshot ... Michelle may be First Lady, but she wasn't first to know "Argo" took home the big prize.

We did some digging to find out exactly who handled the goods. The First Lady's press office said they'd call around to find out the answer and get back to us, but so far that hasn't happened.

As for the Secret Service ... an official said this to TMZ, "We're not gonna comment on that."  We're guessing they weren't rooting for "Lincoln."

A movie about Iran that shouldn't had won and the first lady presenting? talk about politicizing the Oscar's.

They are probably preparing the invasion on Iran.

Disgraceful, but then Hollywood is pretty much a POS anyway. More liberal propaganda forced on us. Gobells has nothing on these guys.

For some reason I think the White House and Secret Service staff have more important things to do than talk to TMZ about who held an envelope!

In my opinion that was the worst Oscar award show in history, I turned it off half way through the program. It seems we are bombarded every day with the Obamas, we cannot get through a day without having one of their mugs on the TV screen telling us how we should act, what we should eat, and how we must all suffer more so the poor lazy people who decide not to work should get a larger piece of the pie. The sickos in Hollywood continue to worship at the feet of these socialists.

It's starting to look a lot like Nazi Germany. First school children mindlessly singing BHO songs. POTUS on TV. Suzan Rice on the comedy shows explaining Benghazi. The POTUS on the view more than in front of the real press. Now this Hollywood's next choice for President. Another un qualified communist.

What a joke. Who ever heard of a first lady announcing an Oscar winner before. The country is falling apart and she is announcing an Oscar winner and her husband plays golf with tiger woods. No wonder why people are laughing us around the world.
