Michelle Obama: Big Fan of 'Politically Savvy' Jane Fonda

In their latest interview with Michelle Obama, People magazine asked if there were role models the First Lady looked at to think "When I'm 70 or 80, I want to look and live like her?"

Mrs. Obama thought of actresses: Cicely Tyson, and then that "politically savvy, sharp woman" named Jane Fonda, age 76:

"I just went to see Cicely Tyson on Broadway. She is in her 80s [just turned 80 in December] and did a two-hour play with stamina and passion. I told her 'I want to be you when I grow up!'" And then she added: "There's Jane Fonda, a beautiful, engaged, politically savvy, sharp woman."

Last November, new U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power sounded a similar note:



“Hi everybody,” Power said, according to a transcript. “You know life has changed when you’re hanging out with Jane Fonda backstage. There is no greater embodiment of being outspoken on behalf of what you believe in — and being 'all in' in every way — than Jane Fonda. And it’s a huge honor just to even briefly have shared the stage with her.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Michelle Obama: Hanoi Jane's My Role Model

First Lady Michelle Obama says Jane Fonda is one of her role models, and that she admires her political savviness.

During an interview with People Magazine, Obama listed "Hanoi Jane," as one of the people she would like to look and live like when she's 70 or 80 years old.

"There’s Jane Fonda, a beautiful, engaged, politically savvy, sharp woman," Obama said.

The comment is likely to enrage Vietnam War veterans who still remember how Fonda, now 76, went to North Vietnam in 1972 and was photographed sitting on an anti-aircraft battery. Fonda denounced U.S. military leaders as "war criminals" and later called tortured American POWs "hypocrites and liars," telling them to "get a life."

Obama also listed Cicely Tyson as another role model, during the interview to mark her 50th birthday.

"I just went to see Cicely Tyson on Broadway. She is in her 80s [just turned 80 in December] and did a two-hour play with stamina and passion. I told her ‘I want to be you when I grow up!'"

Obama's comments are already receiving criticism. Writing on Breitbart, David Webb said, "Michelle Obama often comes across to me as an angry black woman who had all the advantages such as going to Princeton University after coming from basically nothing. Yet instead of maximizing her advantages in life she seems to wear them like a burden and projects the burden onto others."

"Only a die-hard liberal thinks Jane Fonda is anything less than a traitorous scumbag," said a post at the conservative blog Weasel Zippers.

"Oh gee, a communist being a 'big fan' of another communist, who’d have thunk it?" said one reader at Newsbusters. Another said, "These are the type of people who now rate tribute in our great Republic? This story is sad on so many levels."

Not sure how the Mooch plans to look like Hanoi Jane. Bleach and extensive dental work?

One thing I have to say about Hanoi Jane- at least the work she's had done is high quality.  She still looks like Jane Fonda, and not some permutation of her former self.

I'll bet had she stayed in Viet Nam she wouldn't look as good as she does today.
