Again from HuffPo:
Right-wing wackiness reached new heights as Tammy Bruce, pinch-hitting on hate merchant Ingraham’s radio show, laid waste to First Lady Michelle Obama.
Michelle visited an urban Washington D.C. classroom last week, speaking to students about her grade school experiences. Accusing the first lady of adopting a weird, fake accent reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s as she addressed a predominantly ethnic crowd in observance of MLK day, Tammy “Faye” Bruce nearly lost bladder control as she repeated Michelle’s account of wanting to get A’s in school.
Listen to to this unhinged, racist imbecile go off on Michelle Obama. It’s totally unbelievable. I mean, just LISTEN to this! Sweet, Jumpin’ MOSES!
That’s right. According to Ms. Bruce, Michelle et al are “trash.” “You know what we’ve got? We’ve got trash in the White House. Trash is a thing that is colorblind, it can cross all eco-socionomic… (sic) categories. You can work on Wall Street, or you can work at the Wal-Mart. Trash, are (sic) people who use other people to get things, who patronize others, who consider you bitter and clingy…”
WHA? When did it become okay to slander our first family in this way? Never repercussions, if we’re lucky, righties apologize, saying that’s not what they meant or was influenced by some prescription meds or was taken out of context, blah, blah, blah. We should rename the GOP as the “Apologist” Party. If Republicans don’t want people to refer to or think of them as stupid, upon hearing crap like this, how can anyone compliment their collective intellect?
Such talk show hosts are popular because the GOP base responds to such stupidity and unbridled hate. What on earth are we suppose to call them? Is this what now passes for intellectual discourse? Ron Reagan responded on his radio program. (Thanks to “Rochester Populist” for posting).
