When you’re playing Jacks in the schoolyard it’s OK to say, “Hey! Either do it my way or I’m gonna take my marbles and go home!” But when you’re the FLOTUS you don’t just threaten to go home because you’re not getting your way. On Tuesday, Michelle Obama’s arrogant response to a heckler didn’t earn her any points for respect, it just made her look like a petulant, spoiled brat.
During a Democratic fundraiser in front of approximately 200 people, Mrs. Obama was heckled by a woman in the crowd who was calling for President Obama to issue an executive order that would bar federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT employees.
Instead of calmly waiting for the heckler to stop, as most professionals would have done, the First Lady decided to stomp her little foot and play the arrogant card. Mrs. Obama stepped away from the microphone and said, “One of the things I don’t do well is this.”
She then pointed at the heckler and told the crowd and delivered her ultimatum: They could listen to her or the heckler could have the microphone, “but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”
The audience applauded Mrs. Obama and a woman in the crowd told the heckler, “You need to go!”
Surprisingly, there is no video available that shows the First Lady’s tirade.
The mainstream media’s using a graphic image to highlight the quotes, but they’re not using any audio and they’re not even using a current picture of Mrs. Obama. They do, however, make a point of saying there’s no video available.
There’s even an amateur video recorded by someone in the audience that cuts off just before the heckler steps in. And another amateur video looks like it’s been removed and replaced with something else. One of the commenters even says he’s been looking for a video for 30 minutes and can’t find anything.
In an age where somebody is recording every single thing that happens every single day, all around the world, it seem strange that there’s no video or audio recording of Mrs. Obama’s temper tantrum available anywhere on the Web. Especially since it’s obvious that somebody was recording this event.
Could it be that someone from the Democratic party realized you just can’t treat your campaign contributors like children? Were they afraid of the backlash when the public saw the ‘real’ First Lady in action? Did it finally occur to them that you have to at least try to make the sheeple believe you’re listening – until you cash their check?
