On a talk show hosted by a Hollywood star anchor, Michelle Obama took up the challenge for push ups and beat the athletic lady anchor, who was surprised at the physical fitness of Princeton University and Harvard Law School educated first lady of USA.

However I dare the US First Lady to match our First Lady’s shopping sprees to Harrods, where her VAT refunds were more than the semi annual wardrobe purchases by family of President of world’s sole superpower, or for the President of USA to compare his ordinary looking business suits to the expensive branded suits of our PM with his expensive handmade shoes, watches, matching silk ties etc. This challenge should not involve any intellectual, ethical or intelligence measuring exercises.
