Michelle Obama, like her husband, has been losing popularity for her school food regiments that are depriving students of food, as well as her recent gaffes on the campaign front.
Her most recent glaring statement came when she said that it doesn’t matter who is on the ballot; “our community,” or the black community, should always vote Democratic. No matter who it is, what they stand for, or what they’ve said or done, they need to vote Democrat. She added that black youth need to be taught to always vote Democratic.
Things somehow just got worse during her interview with Roland Martin on TV One, a station that caters to black viewers. She said something so racially charged that had it appeared anywhere else, there would be demands for apologies and for people to lose their jobs.
“So can we, if we go out to the polls, can we say, we have ‘souls to the polls’ on Sunday, can we do soul food after we vote?” Martin asked.
“Absolutely, I give everyone full permission to eat some fried chicken after they vote, only after…” the First Lady snickered.
“Just Checking!” Martin exclaimed.
“You make a good point because I am, I do talk about health,” she added. “But I think that a good victory for Democrats on Tuesday, you know, should be rewarded with some fried chicken.”
If Obama was just called “the most racist president ever,” what does this make his wife?
