Talking about the President's wife's backside... that's a no-no!
A US congressman has landed himself in trouble after making ungentlemanly remarks about Michelle Obama’s derriere.
Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner went so far as to suggest that Barack Obama’s wife was setting a bad example for children because her bottom was too big.
The politician was being hypocritical with the first lady's ‘Let’s move’ campaign to tackle childhood obesity.
He was overheard making the comments during a mobile phone conversation while waiting at Washington DC’s Reagan National Airport.
Speaking very loudly he is reported saying,
“She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself,”
After the Republican’s comments were reported, a note of apology was sent.....his spokesman says,
“Mr Sensenbrenner was referring to the First Lady’s healthy food initiative,”
“He doesn’t think the government should be telling Americans what to eat.
“While he may not agree with all of her initiatives, he plans to contact the First Lady’s office to apologize for his comments,”
As he should! That was so rude. And if you look at the photo above, he's got quite a few extra pounds himself....
The First Lady has not yet commented on the remarks.
