People like Michelle Obama that have been pampered fora good portion of recent memory are horribly out of touch and really do not understand how the world works.
I heard a story once about a guy that had won the lottery and had lived independently wealthy for a good long time. He and his accountant parted ways and he was forced for a few months to take care of all of his bills on his own for a little while.
I know it sounds strange, but the guy actually forgot how to pay his cable bill online. The wrong people under the right circumstances can become out of touch with the rest of the world pretty darned quick.
Showing just how out-of-touch she is, former first lady Michelle Obama recently accused the Republican Party of lacking diversity — a claim that elicited an epic response from a minority GOP leader.
At the Pennsylvania Conference for Women, Obama said when she attended the State of the Union address she would notice the Republican side was “all men, all white,” according to Fox News.
Former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, however, disagreed with the former first lady, using a one-word tweet to point out just how wrong she was.
Although he is a male — which apparently is reason for shame — Jindal, whose parents immigrated to the United States from India, definitely qualifies as a “person of color” in the liberal parlance. And he’s certainly not alone in the Republican Party.
Another prominent Republican lawmaker, Senator Marco Rubio, is a first-generation American whose parents came to the U.S. from Cuba. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is also of Hispanic background and a member of the GOP.
But, the Republican Party isn’t just diverse when it comes to race and background, as there are plenty of female leaders within the GOP, as well.
Utah Republican and U.S. Rep. Mia Love is both African-American and female, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is an Indian-American who served as South Carolina’s first female governor, according to Biography.com
