I'm just - what? WTF? what is wrong with a woman who can say this, & who thinks Michelle is anything other than classy, beautiful & dignified?

“It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House. I’m tired of seeing a ape in heels”

'This is the ultimate irony of the anti-“political correctness” crusader – they say something horrendously racist and then feel victimized when they have to face consequences for their actions'

I actually really like Michelle Obama.she has been a great inspiration to many.

People should keep these racist slurs to themselves.especially "official" people.

That is just dreadful...

M0stlyHet Mon 14-Nov-16 20:12:25

Holy crap! That is terrible. I find what's going on in America terrifying.

Bluntness100 Mon 14-Nov-16 20:13:07

Oh that's just unspeakably awful, I'm shocked anyone could write it.

Yup, there is a very nasty underbelly of racism in the US sad

Of course, this wonderful official manages two insults for the price of one -- the enormous, overt racism, and the so common we fail to notice it sexism of assuming that the job of a presidents partner is to be 'classy, beautiful, dignified'. Would we have said this of Bill if Hilary had got in?................

Holy shit. I'm not surprised, sadly.

When Barack was first elected my friend in Texas said everyone there referred to him as "The Monkey". It is sickening.

Ignoring the utter crap..."A ape"
Does this official need to go back to school for grammar as well?

TheUnworthy Mon 14-Nov-16 20:16:55

I think what's truly terrifying is that this 'official' felt no need to keep her views hidden.

Goodbye underbelly hello front page.

What a disgusting comment. Who thinks like this?

OohhThatsMe Mon 14-Nov-16 20:17:49

It makes me feel ill, that someone would talk like that.

RockyBird Mon 14-Nov-16 20:18:14

The mayor wants to be arrested and jailed. The original FB message does say "an" though.

StealthPolarBear Mon 14-Nov-16 20:18:18

Good point some Dyke. Her job was to smile,say nothing and wear heels.
Actually cam we convince trump to do that for the next four years? Probably safest plan.

StealthPolarBear Mon 14-Nov-16 20:18:40

It doesn't in the screens hot

BakeOffBiscuits Mon 14-Nov-16 20:18:48

Fuckinh hell! And the Mayor agreed with her.

I hope they both get the sack, though it won't change the fact there are many who agree with themangry

BratFarrarsPony Mon 14-Nov-16 20:20:23

They should both be sacked.
at once.

StealthPolarBear Mon 14-Nov-16 20:21:37

Didn't trump effectively call the us population idiots? And they proved him right by voting for him anyway.

CharlieSierra Mon 14-Nov-16 20:22:12

I saw a video thing of Michelle on FB today, some of the comments underneath made me sick to my stomach.

WalkingToMordor Mon 14-Nov-16 20:27:28

How full of hatred would you have to be to think like that never mind happily put it online? Sadly there are some very sick people in the world.

I think Michelle Obama is amazing.

Showmeagain Mon 14-Nov-16 20:31:17

And that is what black women have to face. If a fraction of people say it imagine how many people think it.

Sick fuck

msrisotto Mon 14-Nov-16 20:31:55

Shit like this makes me want to hide under the duvet. So disappointed in people sometimes.

StealthPolarBear Mon 14-Nov-16 20:41:10

I'm guessing this mayor and the official ate meant to be representing their constituents. All their constituents? This surely has gone far enough. Even the PC gorn mad brigade must be able to see how fucking shit this is.

seminakedinsomebodyelsesroom Mon 14-Nov-16 20:46:00

Awful, shameful.

StealthPolarBear Mon 14-Nov-16 20:48:55

Ah well. Let's brush it under the carpet. Examples are set from the top after all. Casual racism and sexism is fine.
