Mychal Massie: "You can make a black woman the First Lady", won't give her class

On March 4th, 2014, Mychal Massie wrote that the new nutrition facts label championed by Michelle Obama is proof that she’s a "bigoted, racialist" first lady who is "usurping authority and inflicting additional financial injury upon an already suffering people."

How Massie pulled "bigoted" out of nutrition labels is anyone's guess, but given his previous claims that Obama wants kids brainwashinged into being gay and that racism is over so blacks should go back to Africa, it's pretty much what should be expected of him by now.

"Now she is adding more unnecessary financial burden to already suffering families," he insists. "The cost of implementing the sweeping labeling changes she is responsible for is well over a billion dollars, and that is just a low-ball estimate to silence the critics. The final cost of implementing the labeling changes she is forcing the FDA to make, I submit, will be north of $2 billion – all of which will be passed back to you and me, the consumers."

Massie comes to this conclusion by ignoring a report from the New York Times that the health benefits could reach $30 billion and instead cites an article in the National Enquirer.

"As the wife of Obama, the first lady is able to enjoy the spoils of his position, but, as I pointed out in a previous column, the DailyMail.com reported a top source 'told the National Enquirer that [Michelle is] disgusting. Michelle is taking advantage of her privileged position while the most hardworking Americans can barely afford a week or two off from work.'"

Again, Massie's source is a tabloid, proving once and for all that literally anything can be a credible source for WorldNetDaily as long as it says something bad about a Democrat.

"It would be barely tolerable if Michelle Obama would stick to doing jumping-jacks and writhing around on the floor of Ellen DeGeneres' set," he concludes, "much to the delight of DeGeneres. After all, who wouldn’t want the first lady of the United States wallowing around on the floor of their nationally televised talk show? It proves that you can make a black woman the first lady, but that doesn't mean she will have any class."

Massie must have concluded with this statement just in case the fact that he is a narcissistic incendiary douche wasn't obvious enough already.
