Does CNN Think Michelle Obama Can Sign Bills into Law?

Hopefully CNN anchor Carol Costello was simply a bit confused when she decided that First Lady Michelle Obama had the power to sign a bill into law (even a bill as bad as one that mandates what kind of food every school district in the country must serve).

The relevant bit comes at about 25 seconds into the video.

“That was Mrs. Obama back in 2010 when she signed the Healthy, Hungry Kids Act into law…”

I am not so certain that Costello is confused here. The sentence she constructs to open her remarks is well thought out and well-articulated – if she simply had a momentary bit of confusion she likely would have stumbled over her words.

I honestly believe that she probably doesn’t realize that Michelle Obama cannot sign something into law.

Which speaks volumes about our modern watchdog media…
