Michelle Obama’s High-Achieving SOTU Guest Just Flunked Out Of College

One of Michelle Obama’s guests at the 2015 State of the Union address was invited because he overcame major obstacles to attend college, but he actually flunked out of school after just two semesters.

Anthony Mendez was a freshman at the University of Hartford when he received an invitation from Obama to attend the State of the Union. Mendez was chosen for his inspiring personal story. Despite spending time in a homeless shelter and having a friend of his murdered while in high school, Mendez was able to graduate high school and go on to college. Mendez met with Michelle Obama in the summer of 2014 and shared his story with her, which prompted her to invite him to the president’s speech about six months later.

Unfortunately, by the time he received his invitation, Mendez’s feel-good narrative was falling apart, as he admits in a Vox article published this week.

She is very attractive. It's a shame people are so ignorant and disrespectful. She is very dignified, gracious, smart and a great 1st lady. Negative comments show how stupid some people are.'s not her fault that he flunked out.
