The media’s obsession with former First Lady Michelle Obama never seems to end.

( After four years of the media and American popular culture figures pretending that First Lady Melania Trump doesn’t exist, former First Lady Michelle Obama is now expected to be inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.

On Monday, the organization announced nine new inductees to the Class of 2021. She will be inducted alongside the first female CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi, the first African American female engineer Katherine Johnson, and soccer player Mia Hamm.

Isn’t it kind of patronizing to say that African American women deserve an award for succeeding whether white women succeed? Talk about racism…

The event is all set to take place on October 2, and it won’t be virtual. With the COVID-19 pandemic being brought back under control thanks to the vaccine developed under President Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed, the event is expected to be fairly normal in format. It will take place at the Seneca Falls National Women’s Hall of Fame in New York, and it will be streamed online for free.

Remember, that’s October 2 on the National Women’s Hall of Fame website, just in case you want to make sure you don’t accidentally log on and see it…

The website revealed the reasoning behind their decision, describing how Michelle Obama “has emerged as one of the most influential and iconic women of the 21st century.”

Her strong advocacy for women and girls, the statement adds, makes her an important addition to the Hall of Fame.

Obama has already received an outpouring of support for being included in the list for this year’s inductees.

Obama is responsible for a number of well-coordinated PR campaigns, including her “Let’s Move!” program aimed at ending childhood obesity, but which really just ended up destroying school lunches for children.

She has also sold millions of copies of her book “Becoming” and become a Spotify podcast host.

Where is First Lady Melania Trump’s award for standing up for the American people and her charitable work under her “Be Best” campaign?
