Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, himself not the skinniest of lawmakers, was heard at the airport today remarking on the size of Michelle Obama's behind.

The Washington media gossip website Fishbowl DC reports that Sensenbrenner, a Republican from Wisconsin, said that the first lady "lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself."

Amanda Infield, Sensenbrenner's press secretary, tells ABC News that that the congressman plans on contacting Obama's office to apologize.

"He doesn't think the government should be telling Americans what to eat," Infield said in a statement.

The first lady's anti-obesity campaign encourages children to eat healthier foods. Though the press has noted when Obama herself stops by eateries that aren't exactly nutritious havens, like Shake Shack.
