Comedienne Issa Rae’s New Project: “The Michelle Obama Diaries”

Jessica Wakeman / October 30, 2012

The First Lady puts on a polite face in public. But you know behind closed doors, she’s talking some shit about Ann Romney’s horse and Mitt’s orange spray tan. Check out this new webseries by comedienne Issa Ray, of “Awkward Black Girl,” fame that imagines just what it is Michelle Obama is thinking … but can’t say. [Think Progress] Update: A reader has pointed out, correctly, that Issa Rae is not the star of this webseries, but the producer. Her leading lady is Yakira Chambers. My apologies to Ms. Chambers.
