Tallest first lady ever lifts President Obama in famous tradition.
A little known fact about our eight-foot-six-inch-tall first lady Michelle Obama is that she uses her phenomenally long and powerful arms to rescue cats and kittens that get stuck in Washington D.C. metropolitan area trees. Hovering at just over 8’6″, and being the tallest woman in the world, the first lady said that she felt compelled to use her stature for good. “When you are this tall, you are often asked to reach things in high places. Like one time Barack was playing basketball with Lebron, Curry, and Shaq and the ball got stuck on the top of the shot clock – 3 feet above the rim. So I walked over, did a little hop and grabbed the ball in the palm of my right hand.” It was then that Michelle realized that she could do so much more with her height. “I had just been watching a local news story about an incredible, 3-legged cat that was rescued by the fire department and saw that I could offer a helpful service to the community by saving cats that get stuck in trees. So we created a hotline for just these situations and I’ve saved over 325 cats during Barack’s presidency.” Thank you for reading our latest informative news article.
