Can Michelle Obama possibly be this tone-deaf? This overtly, sarcastically nasty? Apparently the answer is yes.
Here is a direct quote from Ms. Obama, a guest on last night\’s Tonight Show, talking about the young people who have come running in droves to sign up for ObamaCare – aka Hubby Barack\’s wonderful opportunity to overpay for insurance so that everyone else can be subsidized:
“Well,thanks to the Affordable Care Act, young people can stay on theirparents\’ insurance until they are 26. But once they hit 26 — they\’re on theirown. And a lot young people think they\’re invincible. But the truthis, young people are knuckleheads. They\’re the ones who are cookingfor the first time and slice their finger open, they\’re dancing onthe bar stool.”
Yes, she really did say that.
I\’ll tell you who a knucklehead is, Ms. Obama. It\’s someone who thinks opening that kind of a mouth is going to help ObamaCare with young people.
In fairness, though, if Ms. Obama was going to say such a thing, she certainly picked the right show. Jimmy Fallon, who has just replaced Jay Leno on Tonight, is a solidly liberal/left host, who would have no problem at all with such a, frankly, dumb comment – as long as it came from someone on his side of things, that is.
Remember, this is the same Fallon who invited Michele Bachmann on his show, and as she walked on stage, had his band play a song titled “Lyin\’ Ass Bitch” – which NBC was forced to apologize for afterwards (nothing easier than apologizing after the deed is done, is there?).
Yes, the left can collectively sleep well tonight, knowing that NBC has exorcised Jay Leno, who represented what little diversity the network had, in favor of Jimmy Fallon – who is safely in the fold, not to mention the tank, for its lord and savior Barack Obama — and Michelle (the one with the double “l”).
