Michelle Obama Says Soldier Was Caught In A ‘Fire Fart’ [VIDEO]

First Lady Michelle Obama told a harrowing story Wednesday of a soldier caught in a “fire fart” during his wartime experience.

“There’s this soldier that we met just a month ago,” Obama told the crowd at a Los Angeles event addressing the plight of homeless veterans, “who was caught in a fire fart–fight in Afghanistan.”

The soldier returned home to find a bleak environment for veterans of war, according to Michelle’s prepared remarks at the event, which also featured a presentation from Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti.

“Just try putting yourselves in their shoes for just a moment,” Michelle said in her speech.

The First Lady added that when it comes to the task of helping our homeless heroes, “government┬ácan’t do this alone” so “we have got to get communities engaged” including “schools, hospitals, neighbors.”
