Obama Criticized For Dancing The Tango, Opponents Say He Should Have Chosen Square Dance

imageWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Critics have condemned U.S. President Barack Obama for dancing the tango during a state dinner held in his honor while visiting Argentina, saying it was very insensitive of him and Michelle to do it in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium.

“How can the leader of the most powerful nation on earth  be so callous especially when he was not even in his home country,” the critics said.

Asked by The Adobo Chronicles what President and Mrs. Obama should have done, the critics said, “they should have chosen to do it the American way — the square dance, or at the very least, the hip hop dance.”

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t!

HALLANDALE, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles) – Until recently, it has been estimated that 15 Million people take weekly Zumba classes in over 140,000 locations across more than 185 countries.

Zumba is a dance fitness program created by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto ‘Beto’ Perez in the 1990s.  It involves dance and aerobic elements and incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo.  Squats and lunges are also included.

Now, thanks to U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, the number of Zumba enthusiasts has more than doubled in just the last week or so, according to Zumba Fitness, LLC, which owns the Zumba trademark. Think about it, more than 30 Million people worldwide dancing the Zumba — young and old, gay and straight, men and women, politicians and businessmen —  of all races!

It all started when Obama appeared on the Ellen Show, and together with Ellen DeGeneres and some dancers and choreographers from the hit TV show, So You Think You Can Dance, shook her hips, squatted and lunged, stretched her arms, stepped and double-stepped — all for the sake of promoting her fitness program which is celebrating its 5th year.  Hence the tag, “Give Me Five!”

Indeed, Michelle Obama is now the undisputed greatest endorser of health and fitness, Zumba included.

Here’s the video of Mrs. Obama’s appearance on the Ellen Show.





Washington, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) –  Joan Rivers has joked that US president Barack Obama is gay, and his wife Michelle is transgender.

The notoriously controversial 81-year-old comedian officiated a surprise gay wedding at a book signing in New York City earlier this week, and was asked by a reporter for her thoughts on when the US will get its first gay or female president. She replied:  “We already have that with Obama, so let’s just calm down… and you know Michelle is a tranny.”

At a White House press briefing today, Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked what the President and First Lady’s reaction was to Rivers’ comments.

Earnest told reporters: “As a matter of policy, we don’t comment on statements made by mummies.”

End of controversy.
