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.
Oh, please. Laura Bush appeared on the Oscars in a taped segment in 2002, and Presidents Reagan (as POTUS, not as an actor) and FDR made a video and radio message respectively. It's hardly anything new or out of bounds.

And what difference does it make? As mentioned, she holds no office, she has no influence over the awards, so what's the problem? There's no conflict of interest.
If it had been a Republican First Lady I wouldn't have even thought twice about it. Much like I didn't think twice about it when Michelle Obama was on there.
