Last week, political commentator Tammy Bruce–who is openly gay, pro-choice, a former chapter president of NOW, and bills herself as an “independent conservative”–filled in on Laura Ingraham’s radio show and called the Obamas “trash.” Bruce made fun of Michelle Obama’s “weird, fake accent” and compared it to Hillary Clinton’s accent “when talkin’ to black people.” She maintained that trash “is a thing that is colorblind” and that it crosses “all eco-socionomic kinda categories.”
Oh Tammy. If you’re going to call someone “trash,” maybe you should start by not talking like trash. Just a thought.
