Michelle Obama 1Issa Rae is the brains behind “The Michelle Obama Diaries” a comedic series which premiered last week.

In the Jan, 2013 edition of Sister 2 Sister Magazine Rae  (who depicts Michelle) said, “Everybody loves Michelle. Michelle is like every person in the Black community’s dear aunt or mother figure, so you can’t really mess her up.”

In the first episode Rae depicts Michelle reacting to the president’s first debate against Republican nominee Mitt Romney…

“He choked. I knew we shouldn’t have had anniversary sex on the plane”. She joked about her high approval rating, “Scandal,” “Honey Boo Boo” and being raised in Chi-Town. “Don’t let this fabulous J. Crew ensemble fool you. I’m from the South Side of Chicago. Recognize”, Rae said.

Rae felt it challenging morphing into the first lady without going overboard.

“I didn’t want to disrespect her because I love Michelle as well, but I kind of wanted to show her in a comedic light. I wanted to show her in the best light possible, but still poke fun at the stress she might be going through in the White House.”
