Talk about putting your best foot forward…

My mother’s boss is married to the lady that plans all of Michelle Obama’s fundraisers and events she does. The boss and his wife were in Hawaii with Michelle at this dinner and a kid that was supposed to be the live entertainment went up on stage and sang a whole song in front of the President and the guests about Occupy Wall St.
That kid had balls. The beach the hotel was on was lined with barbed wire fence all the way into the water. Just to get to the pool my mom’s boss had to show his badge four times. But this kid gets up on stage and tells the president face to face about this uprising.
How fucking awesome is that?
