(CBS) – Hello. Hello, Ms. First Lady Michelle. Thank you for stopping in Chicago. It’s been good having you here, even if only a few hours.

Now that you’re back in the White House, when you have a minute, please, would you mind asking your husband to more quickly appoint a U.S. attorney in Chicago to replace Patrick Fitzgerald, the tough guy who puts politicians in prison?

Tell your husband that it’s not so important right now to put another pol in prison. What we need here is another gangbanger in prison, more gangbangers off the streets.

Please ask your husband to call our police superintendent, Garry McCarthy, for his list of gang bosses involved in murdering our children in their play yards and front yards.

The president can have a U.S. attorney putting a stop on violence in Chicago, have him or her here next week if he wants to.

Your husband knows that, ma’am. Just remind him. Thank you.
