After over 2,000 petition signatures by students, Michelle Obama has been forced to cancel her graduation speech in Topeka Unified School District 501. Most students were pissed off about being allotted only six tickets to their graduation because of all the space Mooch and her ‘staff’ would have taken up, plus security. Now, after the uproar, Michelle Obama has been forced to cancel her speech to the Topeka Unified School District 501 high school graduating seniors. We’ll wait for the cries of racism to fly. The Hill is reporting 1,750 signatures, but as usual they are just down playing to make Michelle Obama look better. The number of petition signatures has soared passed 2,000.
First lady Michelle Obama is scrapping her plans to deliver a graduation speech for high school seniors in Topeka, Kan., after hundreds signed a petition in protest.
Instead of delivering a graduation speech, Obama will speak before the school district the day before graduation, and will deliver remarks at a “Senior Recognition Day.”
More than 1,750 people had signed a petition protesting the first lady’s appearance at the graduation ceremony, angered that security concerns would limit the number of friends and family who could attend.
