Michelle Obama Embarrassed by 2nd Grader; and Why Arizona Corporation Commissioner Gary Pierce Is an Idiot
And a little child shall lead them...In case you missed it, the video above is of First Lady Michelle Obama, accompanied by Mexico's First Lady Margarita Zavala, visiting with a group of Maryland second graders on Wednesday. One kid asked if it was true what her mommy says that Barack Obama's taking everyone away that doesn't have papers.
Cameras rolling, Michelle Obama lamely tried to play the question off, "Yeah, well that's something that we have to work on, right? To make sure that people can be here with the right kind of papers, right? That's exactly right."
Little girl: "But my mom doesn't have papers."
"Yeah, well, we have to work on that, we have to fix that," she told the little one.
Afterward, the First Lady called Immigration and Customs Enforcement on the tyke and had her family deported.
OK, the last part's not true, but it might as well be, what with ICE having a quota of 400,000 deportations to make per year, by hook or crook. I wouldn't be surprised if there's some wily ICE agent looking for the girl's address and her mom's name right now.
