Since it was one bald face lie from start to finish, no surprise.

I heard somewhere that a news reporter should dumb down and write at an 8th grade level so people will understand. When I was a newspaper reporter, I once spoke to a gathering of lawyers and judges and said I had no problem following that advice, as I'd once been a lawyer and had to write motions and briefs for the court.  They laughed.

I've always been told to write at an 8th grade level for a professional audience and at the 5th grade level for the general population. I can't imagine that anyone would write an important speech and not check the comprehension level - software does it.
But I guess michelle doesn't need to communicate anything; she's adored for just being her. Or maybe she was showing off. Whichever.  :laugh:
