10-year-old Michelle Obama SWORE so much she lost 'best camper' award

As first lady of the United States she can be nothing but the epitome of grace, elegance and politeness as she mingles with world leaders and celebrities at the White House and further afield.

But it was not always so for Michelle Obama, who as a child was so foul-mouthed she lost out on an award at summer camp aged 10, according to a new biography.

The first lady-to-be was an avid attendee at a day camp on the shores of Lake Michigan, and stood out as the most capable in her age group.

But camp leaders were so taken aback by her salty tongue that they denied her a prestigious award when the camp ended, according to biographer Peter Slevin, whose Michelle Obama: A Life was previewed by People magazine.

Michelle Robinson, as she was then known, as so stunned by the revelation that she changed her ways immediately and put an end to her 'cursing phase'.

The anecdote surfaced in the upcoming book on Mrs Obama, which also includes the revelation that her mother was anxious about her marriage to future president Barack Obama – because he is mixed race rather than completely black.

Slevin quotes her as saying: 'I was going through my cursing stage.'

'I didn't realize until my camp counselor at the end came up and said: "You know, you would have been best camper in your age group, but you curse so much".'

'And I thought I was being cool.'

Mrs. Obama used to attend the camp regularly with her brother, Craig. She would have been ten years old at the camp held in 1974, while Craig would have been 11.

She is by no one's stretch of the imagination the epitome of grace, elegance and politeness.
She's the epitome of ghetto trash-low class and ill bred. She's conducts herself as a slave to men, one who sticks by a liar, lies for him, allows him to accept money from a man who publicly called a woman the C word and associates with and allows her spawn to associate w/"musicians" who glorify the disrespecting of women and glorify violence.
The comment she made after The Liar in Chief won the election-"For the First Time in My Adult Lifetime, I’m Really Proud of My Country" says it all.
If she didn't have her head shoved up a man's butt, she would see that everyday in this country there was many things to be proud of whether it be people saving other people's lives, feeding the less fortunate, rocking and comforting drug addicted babies.
She's not a role model She is nothing to emulate or to aspire to be unless of course you are like approx 50 percent of the country who haven't a moral bone in your body and honesty isn't important to you.
