While at Ronald Reagan Airport on Wednesday, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wisc.) was overheard talking on the phone. During his conversation, he told the person on the other end of the line that Michelle Obama has a big butt.
Our source, a Democratic operative who heard the whole thing, said he was “very loud”. Sensenbrenner was overheard saying that after buying all their “crap” (his word) a woman approached him and praised first lady Michelle Obama. He told the woman that Michelle should practice what she preaches — “she lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself.”
Sensenbrenner did not offer comment on the story.
UPDATE: Sensenbrenner's spokeswoman told FishbowlDC that the congressman will be in touch with the first lady to apologize for his comments.
