Huckabee snares Michelle Obama for FOX News interview


Below, release from FOX.....


Former Governor Mike Huckabee will sit down with First Lady Michelle Obama for an interview to be presented on his FOX News Channel (FNC) program Huckabee (8-9 PM/ET) on Saturday, February 20th. An encore presentation will appear on Sunday February 21st at 8 PM/ET.

In her first interview with the network, First Lady Michelle Obama will speak with Huckabee about her "Let's Move" campaign, an effort to tackle the challenge of childhood obesity nationwide. She will also address what life is like in the White House, among other topics.

Huckabee showcases the former Governor interviewing stars in news, politics and entertainment as well as an audience question & answer segment, and the house band known as the "Little Rockers." The program also features special "On the Road" segments throughout cities in the United States and abroad, special musical guests and reflections on historical anniversaries.

FOX News Channel (FNC) is a 24-hour general news service covering breaking news as well as political, entertainment and business news. For eight years, FNC has been the most-watched cable news channel in the country, presenting the top thirteen programs in cable news. Owned by News Corp., FNC is available in more than 90 million homes.



It is great that First Lady Michelle Obama is concerned with obesity. Obesity is rampant throughout adults and children. Adult population close to 60% and children 18%.

I would like to know why more employment positions are not created to educate individuals on obesity and disease in Health and Human Services departments throughout the country?

I am a provisional alternate route teacher in health education and unable to find positions of such in NJ. The First Lady needs a team to spread the word.

I will be looking forward to the interview.

There is a lot to be said for preventive health care. Stop smoking, NO Illegal drugs, limited alcohol intake. Exercise and controlling weight.

All contribute to longer healthier lives.

Please Advise...How can you guide your grandchildren with obesity issues without criticizing them and to eat healthy, when you and the parents and grandparents have a problem with obesity...?

I saw all of the interview. She is performing her duty as the First Lady with class and distinction. I wish that I could say the same for her husband in his job.

Michelle would be better advised to worry about kids who aren't getting enough to eat. She's out of touch with the common folk & their problems.
