Comedian Jay Mohr tastelessly slammed MIchelle Obama‘s looks in a recent interview with ESPN’s Jim Rome, and folks are up in arms about it. In regards to the First Lady, Mohr said,
Michelle Obama – that is a big dude. When Barack plays pick up games at the White House, you know he picks Michelle as his forward, maybe his [center] depending on who’s in Congress that day.
That has to be like being married to Elton Brand. She is a big dude. I like when she put her arm around the Queen of England and she put her in a headlock and said, “I’ve been waiting 200 years to put my arms around you lady.”
I like how she shaved off her eyebrows, and then drew them back way too high and in an arch, and then way back down, so she always looks super surprised. Michelle Obama kind of looks like the Count on Sesame Street. One – ah ah – One Black President – ah ah.
Listen to the audio of Jay’s rant, below. Do you think he was totally out of line with his judgment of Michelle’s looks, or is it because he’s picking on such an admirable and historical figure that some are taking it a little too personally? Would you be as angry/humored if he was picking on a black female often clowned in our society, like Star Jones? Speak on it!
