The host was fine. I liked him. But the Oscars is all politics. And having the First Lady at the end did nothing to lessen that feeling.
That was totally inappropriate.
Inappropriate, how? She holds no actual office, and she's a popular figure, both culturally and socially. The current Administration is a media friendly one, and both Barack and Michelle stay active in the social media circuit, and something as large as the Oscars would surely be commented upon, and considering the subject matter of the films, entirely reasonable for her to make a comment praising the fine work done by the artists in question, as well as the actual soldiers who put their lives on the line every day.
