Larry Wilmore stuck up for First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday night after a Fox News contributor said that the President’s wife got into Princeton University because of affirmative action.
Fox guest Angela McGlowan, who is black, offered up her theory on Tuesday’s edition of “Fox & Friends” while critcizing Obama’s “racially charged” commencement speech at Tuskegee University.
“Why didn’t the first lady share that the reason she got into Princeton was probably because of affirmative action?” she said. McGlowan added that Obama probably got her job at a presitgious law firm for the same reason.
“Whoa, slow your roll, Fox’s convenient black friend!” Wilmore said.
Wilmore proposed a more accurate portrait of affirmative action for a high-profile American leader.
“When a coke-snorting, alcohol-guzzling son of a CIA director DUI’s his way into Yale and ultimately into the Oval Office because his daddy was in both places — that’s affirmative action,” he said.
The crowd roared at the not-so-veiled reference to President George W. Bush.
