Video: Michelle Obama on Colbert

posted at 10:02 am on April 16, 2008 by Allahpundit

Two loose cannons brought together by fate, ready to fire on Bittergate, Hillary, and anything else Colbert might have the balls to bring up by way of a Stewart-esque gotcha question. The result: A little light humor by way of kids’ drawings of Obama and a solid six minutes of gassy rhetoric on the forthcoming redemption of America. Zzzzz.

Update: Square this circle: All of their friends are lawyers, yet every woman she knows is struggling to keep her head above water.

Please, please, please give us Obama as the Dem. nominee.

“Barack and I tend to look at the positives.”

Ha! That’s pretty funny.

freakagriep on April 16, 2008 at 10:10 AM

Wow…she looked right pissed off from the very beginning.

She sounds like she’s always had a bug up her butt. How bitter is SHE?

MadisonConservative on April 16, 2008 at 10:12 AM

I was wondering where they hid her the last six weeks.

Will she be appearing with any real news people any time soon?

JammieWearingFool on April 16, 2008 at 10:16 AM

How bitter is SHE? – MadCon

Well she SHOULD be bitter, it took her 20 some odd years to pay off her college tuition bills! And it’s all America’s fault!

Tony737 on April 16, 2008 at 10:17 AM

She should be bitter, cuz she looks just like Aunt Esther.

benrand on April 16, 2008 at 10:20 AM

Why did she pick a white guy to do the interview with. How was that racial decision made?

JiangxiDad on April 16, 2008 at 10:22 AM

She makes me sick!

ArmyAunt on April 16, 2008 at 10:24 AM

He sucks well, doesn’t he?

argos on April 16, 2008 at 10:28 AM

Her phoniness is so apparent.
Why didn’t she come on and just laugh and have a good time instead of trying to be too serious?

ArmyAunt on April 16, 2008 at 10:28 AM

I’ve got a great idea; let’s skip it.

Jaibones on April 16, 2008 at 10:29 AM

When did Barack marry Ru Paul?

Alamo on April 16, 2008 at 10:29 AM

Can I get those 7 minutes back?

Please?

Corky on April 16, 2008 at 10:31 AM

Why didn’t she come on and just laugh and have a good time instead of trying to be too serious?

Because she thought this WAS a serious news show.

Out of Touch Much?

PappaMac on April 16, 2008 at 10:31 AM

If she had married Dr. Huckstable, the whole family would have been in therapy and the show would have been cancelled after Bill Cosby was arrested for battery in episode one.

Syd B. on April 16, 2008 at 10:32 AM

“I was born a poor black child….”

Hey, congratulations on that, but elitism knows no financial barriers. Poor people are every bit as capable of being pretentious as rich people are — it’s just a little bit more pathetic that way.

logis on April 16, 2008 at 10:33 AM

Is there some reason she is never seen with an Asian? Just who is coordinating her racial appearances?

JiangxiDad on April 16, 2008 at 10:35 AM

Square this circle: All of their friends are lawyers, yet every woman she knows is struggling to keep her head above water.

Simple physics, Allah. The water level in the pool gets pretty high when you fill it half-way full of money.

Maybe she’s lying her a$$ off.

benrand on April 16, 2008 at 10:46 AM

They could have paid those college loans off a lot sooner if Tony Rezko had realized Barry was serious about going for the big one.

a capella on April 16, 2008 at 10:55 AM

She’s not telling the truth, every state did not get a chance to seek the all the candidates up close. I know, I live in Michigan and BO did not campaign here.

swami on April 16, 2008 at 10:57 AM

Maybe she’s lying her a$$ off.

benrand on April 16, 2008 at 10:46 AM

No! Say it ain’t so, Joe.

TooTall on April 16, 2008 at 10:57 AM

She grew up at 75th and Euclid. It never got that bad there, black middle class. She’s full of s–t.

White men can’t jump and black lawyers can’t swim?

Thanks for the link though! I had no idea that she thinks that half the people in her audience on any given day are lawyers because all her friends are lawyers. That quote needs to get more play, as its right up there with arugula.

The Lady is waaaaay out of touch and, other than her chic attire, she does not have anything approaching the class of Jackie O. And the fact that Michelle was not born into great wealth does not exempt her from the elitist label she has earned.

Buy Danish on April 16, 2008 at 10:59 AM

I couldn’t make it to the end, it was that boring and the thought of her as first lady and her husband President is too awful.

Conservatives R Us on April 16, 2008 at 11:03 AM

So-o-o spontaneous. I’m sure she had no idea what Colbert would ask her, right? (cough, cough)

Oh, and nice dress — bought it at a thrift shop, no doubt, since she has such trouble making ends meet and all.

Nichevo on April 16, 2008 at 11:11 AM

This is how Barry Obama describes growing up poor. Barry said:

“I had to reconcile a lot of different threads growing up—race, class,” he told me. “For example, I was going to a fancy prep school, and my mother was on food stamps while she was getting her Ph.D.”

And thus we have chapter one of the myth of his impoverished childhood.

CUE THEME SONG:

We’re Movin’ On Down!…

profitsbeard on April 16, 2008 at 11:29 AM

Colbert is such a lying sack of shoop-shoop-de-doop.

But he keeps a straight face during the lies wonderfully.

Just like Barack and Michelle.

My air sickness bag runneth over.

profitsbeard on April 16, 2008 at 11:34 AM

Colbert is such a lying sack of shoop-shoop-de-doop…. My air sickness bag runneth over.
profitsbeard on April 16, 2008 at 11:34 AM

Colbert was good playing a homosexual pedophile on Strangers With Candy. And I even used to fast forward through John Stewart to watch his skits.

But a half hour at a stretch is just waaayy too much of that guy.

logis on April 16, 2008 at 11:38 AM

I knew that there was a reason why I don’t watch television. What drivel!

BTW The audience missed the whoop-applaud cue three times when MichelleO said, “Yes, we can!” Don’t the audience members know their role in this circus?

“Change the lives of working women”

When his policies destroy the economy those that still have jobs will pay exorbitant tax rates and when the islamists take over those working women will only have to buy two outfits, one burka for work and one for the wekend.

peacenprosperity on April 16, 2008 at 12:01 PM

Her phoniness is so apparent.

…but Colbert couldn’t even manage to keep his phoniness on for more than a second or two; his Bill O’Reilly shtick is totally dropped in favor of merely sucking up while trying to score a couple of laughs.

calbear on April 16, 2008 at 12:26 PM

She’s pretty.

Typhonsentra on April 16, 2008 at 12:30 PM

*Steps away from the play button slowly and never looks back*

Yakko77 on April 16, 2008 at 12:30 PM

Now she is working the “Nobody knows” routine.

“We only had 4 spoons, daddy got a raise we had 5 spoons”

GIVE IT A REST! You may have come from that but you dont seem to remember it now.

TroubledMonkey on April 16, 2008 at 1:54 PM

She’s just another black, belligerent, who ain’t never had nothin’ – except for the opportunity [note that I only said “opportunity”] to be educated at Princeton and Harvard.

She’s nothing but another Angela Davis – regarding both her politics and her belligerence. Another angry, Communist – and this country is filthy with them.

OhEssYouCowboys on April 16, 2008 at 2:00 PM

“Square this circle” – Mrs. Obama has been into arugula and square mellons, among other oddities.

Entelechy on April 16, 2008 at 2:27 PM

$10 that she considered all of those pictures to be racist and offensive.

Spolitics on April 16, 2008 at 4:22 PM

Bitter Much?

BadBrad on April 16, 2008 at 4:22 PM

calbear on April 16, 2008 at 12:26 PM

I noticed that, too. It was out of his “character.”

Spolitics on April 16, 2008 at 4:24 PM

“I’m willing to make the sacrifices tell the lies necessary to get him in office…”

fixed it….

“take on the Republican candidate….”

didn’t she get the memo?

TheCulturalist on April 16, 2008 at 5:16 PM

wonder how long it took them to find patriotic kids drawings? flag backgrounds… lady liberty… give me a break!

next thing we’ll hear is that he joined the Army Reserve. i mean why not? he’s a multitasker, right? didn’t i hear he was helping to wage peace in kenya during breaks on the campaign trail?

TheCulturalist on April 16, 2008 at 5:19 PM

This woman is disgusting and an ungrateful american bitch. “Yes we can” make sure you don’t make it to the White House!

Winebabe on April 16, 2008 at 6:36 PM

Yes, she really had to struggle throughout her entire life at Princeton, Harvard, as a US Senate spouse, and now finally this country is giving her something worthy of her…the Whitehouse. Finally, she can be proud of this country. FINALLY!

What took so long?

revolution on April 16, 2008 at 6:51 PM

Did they make her sit on a tack the whole time?

Hog Wild on April 16, 2008 at 9:07 PM

Dang, the video is no longer available. Ever since Google bought out YouTube, multimedia evidence of lefty follies get punted into the memoryhole ASAP.
