This GIF Of Michelle Obama Dunking Proves That She’s The Absolute Coolest

Michelle Obama dunking a basketball with the Miami Heat January 2014 GIFI don’t think there’s anyone in the world I’d rather trade places with right now than Michelle Obama. I mean think about it – Barack isn’t campaigning for anything right now, so she’s pretty much free to do whatever she wants, right? Which in my head includes everything from base jumping off the Washington Monument, to mom-dancing with Jimmy Fallon, to posing as herself at a wax museum and jumping out at tourists to scare them.

And as random and unbelievable as those activities might sound, they’re actually not that far off from how she’s been spending her time lately. I mean she has yet to show up at Madame Tussaud’s, but she did hang out with the Miami Heat when they visited the White House recently. And by ‘hang out’ what I really mean is DUNK A BALL THROUGH A NET BEING HELD BY LEBRON JAMES. And then burst through a circle of other Heat players with a top-shelf sneer.

It was truly a beautiful moment, made all the better by the fact that this is the First Lady of the United States. I feel like when the topic of filming this segment was broached, somebody was like, “Hey Michelle, would you like to pose with Miami Heat players to promote healthy living?” And she was like, “I’ll do you one better — how ’bout one of them holds a basketball net and I come running into frame to dunk on it, then stumble into your interview with THE WEIRDEST LOOK EVER ON MY FACE while you hold up a microphone at me. Would that be cool?”

Say what you will about this, but I think it’s the coolest thing ever. They’re not running for anything in 2016, so she gets the next two years pretty much to herself, doing whatever she wants, like inviting Adele and Beyonce to her fiftieth birthday party and just generally going HAM on obesity.

I love it.

    What a disgrace to this country. For the First time in my adult life, I am ashamed at the Regal behavior of the First Family.

      Have you been an adult for all of 8 minutes? They’re absolutely never allowed to be real people? Unclench. Your world-view will be much better.

      Not while he’s destroy my Country Jeremey. Get a clue numb nuts.

      Um…. my country, too. He’s done less to “destroy” the country than the last office-holder did. “Mission Accomplished” indeed. And well done on learning how to spell.

      You must not have a smart phone. See, here is where we are different. I admit that W. was a horrible President. However, your boy Barry is Bush on Steroids, and has had many more killed in Afghanistan than Bush ever did. Then, there’s the little matter of him killing a U.S Ambassador, using the IRS to spy on his enemies (Nixon was almost impeached for that), and using his SS (NSA), to spy on us all. Oh, and did I mention that Gitmo is STILL open? You probably think that the ACA is a success too?
