Maybe he was mad that she's trying to make food more healthy. I don't know what it's like working for anybody in the White House, but I assume that if I did I would know things that I can and can't say. One Washington D.C. officer obviously didn't as he made a joke that may or may not cost him his job. As him and other officers were discussing threats against the Obamas he said that he "would shoot the first lady" and then used his phone to show the firearm that he would use. Obviously he was placed on administrative duty and is being investigated by the Secret Service, but the Secret Service doesn't believe the joke constitutes as a valid threat.
I don't claim to be the smartest person on the planet (I actually am the smartest person on the planet), but if I know you're not allowed to say something like this a cop should definitely know. Even writing for this site, if I were to say I was going to shoot the First Lady I would get a call from the Secret Service today telling me to cut the ****. I wish I knew how the conversation went that prompted him to say he was going to shoot her in the first place. Most things sound wrong taken out of context, so hearing how the whole conversation went would probably just end in a chuckle with nobody caring.TL;DR
A cop makes a joke about shooting Michelle Obama and is immediately placed on administrative duty.Alleged threat against Michelle Obama by cop being investigated by Secret Service
