Rush Limbaugh Defends NASCAR Fans Booing First Lady
While some in the media appeared shocked when Michelle Obama was booed at a NASCAR race over the weekend in Florida, Rush Limbaugh wasn’t surprised in the least.
Limbaugh has also stated his belief that booing the First Lady makes perfect sense for the crowd at the Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Since the incident, ABC News has run its own coverage calling Limbaugh’s comments “racially insensitive.” ABC cut a a 10 minute radio segment down to a few sentences to focus on Limbaugh’s usage of the word “uppity” regarding the First Lady to infer racial undertones to his speech.
ABC’s Jake Tapper leaves no question about his feelings, referring to Limbaugh’s comments as “making things worse.”
You can watch the ABC News coverage of Limbaugh’s comments below:
For those of you who want to get the full context of Limabugh’s comments, the longer clip is available below.
In short, Limbaugh believes NASCAR fans “…know in their hearts the Obamas don’t like them,” and he gave a number of other reasons that Mrs. Obama might not be welcome by the race track crowd as well.
