'Comedian' Jay Mohr Disses The First Lady

During a recent interview with ESPN's Jim Rome, comedian Jay Mohr tastelessly slammed First Lady Michelle Obama’s looks. And since she's 5'11", guess where he went to do it?

"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."

Here we go again with that tired 'it's a man' meme automatically hurled at any woman above 5'7" tall. And where is the feminist movement who zealously defended Sen. Clinton and Sarah Palin last year when they were hammered by what they considered sexist attacks?

As usual, when it's a Black woman being attacked, their silence is deafening.
