Skip to comments.Michelle Obama: 'Young people are knuckleheads'
Posted on 02/21/2014 5:02:14 AM PST by theruleshavechanged
On the "Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon, First Lady Michelle Obama explained that it was more important than ever for young people older than 26 to sign up for health insurance.
"A lot of young people think they're invincible, but the truth is young people are knuckleheads," she laughed, pointing out that they often cut themselves while cooking or injure themselves by dancing on bar stools.
Obama added that thanks to Obamacare, coverage for young people was much cheaper.
"Now young people can get insurance for as little as $50 a month, less than the cost of gym shoes," she explained.

That back-handed insult just isn’t enough to cajole “young people” into parting with whatever hard-earned money they might have in order to pay for overpriced and otherwise dubious health “coverage.”
Oblivious arrogance of Royalty.
Young Americans are being urged, cajoled and order to health care that they don’t want, and her highness gets a couple of dozen vacations during hubby’s stay in office. - and she’s not done with it. Expect it to be at least 50 total.
$12,000 dresses, $2000 sneakers, separate planes. Villas in Spain, the Taj Mahal in India and all the other exotic locations where she and her 50 or so ‘gal pals’ can just get away from the fray.
Cut themselves cooking and injure themselves dancing of barstools?
They must lead boring lives.
I spent my young adulthood getting smashed up in motorcycles racing crashes and rally car accidents.
Of course they are knuckleheads - they were educated by liberals. However, their refusal to sign up for Obamacare gives me a glimmer of hope that they may recover!
So who buys a new pair of gym shoes EVERY MONTH?
Moochie is insanely stupid!
Michelle just flatly DESPISES those “nonconformists”.
This is no way to set up your own run for the Presidency in 2016, Michelle. Surely, at this point, you cannot afford to lose the momentum (?) built up by the illustrious Current Regime, and to allow Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless, to take over by default, is no way to preserve the legacy.
Jimmy Carter, who was merely incompetent, is looking better and better every day. Even Roslyn wasn’t this mean, and she had some pretty tightly-drawn lips.
Opening up her presidential campaign a little early?
Or they could get carpal tunnel from too many video games. Or bed sores from laying on the couch all day.
LOL! No doubt. Did you see the $12K dress(?)/fashion piece she wore when Frenchie was in town? OMG! 12K? Really? Well, it takes a knucklehead to know one. (No offense to HD Knucklehead MC’s either.)
The $12K Caroline Herrera state dinner dress is a drop in the bucket compared to what it costs taxpayers to subsidize the Obamas WH lifestyle. The Obamas are itinerant luxury-loving parasites, living high, greedily sucking at the public teat......(wire- transferring a bundle offshore for a cushy retirement and to finance Mrs O's political ambitions?).
NRO tallied what taxpayers are paying for M/M O to live large on the taxpayers' dime: a grand total of $1.4 billion per year: Air Force One ($181,757 per hour), executive chef ($100,000 per year), three full-time White House calligraphers ($277,050 per year for the trio), chief of staff to the presidents dog ($102,000 per year), Ohaha's royal motorcade ($2.2 million). $100 million alone for the African apology tour.
$1.4 BILLION is the current annual cost of the White House just in household expenses, not including US policy operations for which the WH exists-- administered by some 900 parasites--- policy staff recruited by Ohaha. There's the $100 million trip to Africa not including the foreign aid billions O handed out to these oil-rich satraps. There's serial Ohaha vacations costing taxpayers millions---- (the low estimate Hawaii vacays is $4 million each, but is probably five times that); the pricey Martha's Vineyard stays; Mrs O's costly trip to elite Marbella w/ an entourage of 30.
Mrs O's $3900 PER NIGHT in Ireland PLUS 30 more rooms for her entourage.
Ireland's Grace Kelly hotel suite.
TAXPAYERS SUFFERED RUINOUS HEALTHCARE CANCELLATIONS--BUT THEY PAY $7 MILLION FOR THE OBAMAS HEALTHCARE---NRO found the first familys yearly health-care costs Americans $7 million; the reason why only Boobamba himself was "enrolled" last month --and not his family.
Mrs O wore her pricey diamond bangles (bought on a govt salary?) at a DNC fund-raiser, attended by "tolerant and compassionate" Dems....raised big bucks to keep Mr O in office so he could work for "the poor." Her diamond Gothic cuff priced at $15,350 set with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 set with 1.73 carats in diamonds. (Excerpt) Read more at houston.culturemap.com.
Mrs O wowed all the "tolerant and compassionate" Dems who hate the rich and support endless tax-paid programs "for the poor."
Mrs O has 24 assistants at her beck and call. Her
wardrobe, nails and hair pieces subsidized w/ tax dollars
of struggling Americans.
Silver-gowned, banged-up Mrs O bombing big time at the 2012 Oscars telecast.
BIGTIME BOOBAMBA BACKFIRE Mrs O was roundly criticized for her scary appearance at 2012's Oscar telecast---the buzz is that stars and moguls in the seats heaved a collective groan when she was beamed in on a large drop-down screen over Jack Nicholson's head.
Even more pointedly, post-Oscar stories left her out of "who wore what" red carpet reports---she used the same designer as one starlet but print and media reports omitted any mention of Moosh, or her glitzy dress (she was entertaining in the WH at the time and was surrounded by uniformed military guards).
LOYAL DEMOCRATS LIKE DONNY DEUTSCH WEIGHED IN: "As far as I'm concerned, she was an uninvited guest. Now what I mean by that is (as an advert guru), you have to give the consumer, the viewer, the ultimate respect. They tuned in to watch movie stars, to watch movies. And all of a sudden, politics is thrown at them."
"If I want to watch her on Jimmy Fallon, that's okay. But, (the Awards)---that was an intrusion, and I have a feeling that three out of four Americans -- Democrat or Republican -- don't want to see the First Lady (there). I think you have to respect your audience enough to not impose her, that's not a moment we're looking for there---the President or the First Lady," Deutsch said on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."
DONNY CONTINUED: "....the tone of it, it was almost a monarch quality.....an elitist flavor to it. I was watching and going, 'huh?' and I'm a Democrat," Deutsch told host Piers Morgan. "I just thought it was very very tone deaf and I was really surprised they did it," Deutsch concluded.
If this keeps up, pretty soon the self-serving O's will be depicted as the new Juan and Evita (/snix) or maybe Nikolai and Elena.
One could even say Ohaha's using the "Argentina Strategy." He and his wife see themselves with unlimited power---employing military strongmen to keep we, the rabble, in check---while duping the worshipful media into thinking they are "humanitarians.
THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR The Perons bankrupted Argentina, took savage, total power by confiscating money from the rich-----and letting Evita bestow the money on the poor, in numerous well-publicized "acts of charity."
Evita traveled around in luxurious designer fashions, furs and lavish jewels; she was infatuated w/ Hollywood. Reigning movie queen Lana Turner saw Evita adopt her look and hair styles--- and was alarmed when her jewelry was confiscated so that Evita could get it copied.
Well of course they are (knuckleheads). They aren’t complying and turning over a 1/3 of their income because they don’t earn that much when they’re new in thw workforce and haven’t established their careers. Of course you wouldn’t understand that because you and your husband had your education paid for, became attorneys, and now take 4 vacations a year and wear 12,000 dresses you stupid $#%& (can’t put want i want to heat but ut rhymes with something you do to a football)
First of all, it's VERY unlikely anything will happen to them.
Second of all, in the unlikely event something DOES happen to them... They have NOTHING TO LOSE! The point of insurance is to prevent the loss of everything you have if something catastrophic happens to you. But since the young haven't accumulated anything, they have nothing to lose, and there is already free medical insurance for those with nothing, it's called Medicaid.
So First Wookie... if anyone is a knucklehead it's YOU! for thinking the young were too stupid to figure out you just wanted them to pay for the discounted healthcare of your inner city brethren
Young people ignoring FORCED confiscation of their dollars for TOTALITARIAN schemes are smarter than King Hussein’s wife.
Low information voter / liberal indoctrinated lump WAKING UP BUMP!
“I spent my young adulthood getting smashed up in motorcycles racing crashes and rally car accidents.”
My friend has undergone multiple back surgeries as a result of the jarring as well as knee and hip replacements.
I don’t think this is going to work the way they intended.
One of the argument tactics of the left is “if you were smart like me, you’d be a liberal like me. You wanna be smart, don’t you?”
Hey all you folks over 26....You’re stupid. Michelle says so.
I can't even imagine what her hairdresser gets.
“Ew!” with Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell & First Lady Michelle
I worked at a Gas station back in the 80s and one day the boss/owner came up and offered us Health Insurance. It was Blue cross/blue shield, the Cadillac of plans back in the day and it was cheap. I signed up for it because I figured it was like a Perk.
It was a Big deal for a 22 year old to have Blue Cross/Blue shield.
Now Obama is pushing this Yugo Health Plan on young people. Cant blame them for not signing up for this clumsy and expensive plan.
Proven by the Marxist, Mooslim, Kenyan, Steaming Pant Load currently in the pResidency....
But I don't regret it - not even a little. Roadracing motorcycles did positive things for my brain that no other activity I have engaged in to date has been able to do.
I’m glad that she agrees that the young are skulls full of mush. They tend to be liberal too. I was when I was young.
Cue Pajama Boy.
I think that I'd like to see him injure himself by dancing on a barstool.
Now they’re not content just to foul every avenue of entertainment with their presence, they have to make sure they wreck it right out of the launch. Will they profane the Oscars again this year?
Dear Lord, WHY couldn’t she have said that in, oh, say.....AUGUST OF 2008????????
When I was a young person, I’d have a he&^ of a time getting my hands on $50 a month
I suppose it isn’t much different NOW.
MO is a knucklehead
“Roadracing motorcycles did positive things for my brain that no other activity I have engaged in to date has been able to do.”
You must have landed on your head and had the sense knocked out you to believe all that pain and suffering (and future pain and suffering) is worth it. :)
If you don’t have a job - due to your husband’s idiotic policies, how can you afford $50 a month exactly? Did she mention what it costs to see the doctor or go to the hospital?
Only a knuckle head thinks you buy insurance to pay for your cut finger.
I love it.
They court the knuckleheads tirelessly for support and votes.
When the knuckleheads cannot find jobs to pay for overpriced crap she insults them.
And this is how the left operates - it always ends with insult, or worse.
Elsewhere we see the Commies blather on about their love for The People and for Worker’s rights - right up to the moment when they shoot them in the head.
Dear knucklehead American youth - the Left doesn’t love you. The Left doesn’t care.
Obamacare plans are basically
“you pay a bigger premium per month than you would have before, and you’ll still pay for any medical care you get out of pocket because the deductibles are so high”
"I'm first lady of the United States of America -- that's pretty high up...But I've always felt like my life is ever-evolving.
I don't have the right to just sit on my talents or blessings, I've got to keep figuring out ways to have an impact -- whether as a mother or as a professional or as a mentor to other kids."
The Worst Lady once again proves she is an arrogant degenerate.
Yes. She’s despicable.
That would explain a LOT...
“Knuckleheads”?......That’s the pot calling the kettle black.(nothing racists there) Reminds me of the old saying, “It takes one to know one”.
So the female dog is trying to convince young people into
getting on the commie wagon by lying to and insulting them?
These liberal dogs are just too stupid to be the ones
pulling the strings.
do some research on magnesium - particularly magnesium oil - and bee propolis
Thanks. I will.
$50 a month - (and I doub t that figure) and what is the deductibla? several thousand a year - that must be paid for up front, should you incur any bills - LOTS more than %50 a month...should you actually need to use it.
That said, my 27 year g’dau and her hubby’s insurance was cancelled - and to ‘sign up’ $750 a month and an outrageous deductible. They can’t do it.
When Obama was running in 2008, he gave a speech in La Crosse, Wisc. where I worked. I still remember the thousands of students trekking from the local state college past my workplace to listen to King Barack. When McCain gave a speech, only a trickle of students went and listened to him speak. I assume the knucklehead quotient all voted for Obama. They deserve every bad thing that’s happening to them.
I may be dead wrong but there appears to be a bit of an inconsistency here. It is my hazy understanding that if you are given Medicaid benefits the government has the right to come after you in later years for the money paid out for you under Medicaid. If that is true, then they certainly have something to lose.
A. I usually get sneakers for $15-20 at WalMart, use the up in 4-6 months, and get another. $30-60 per year for me.
B. That $50/mo, even if it was true, does not include the huge deductibles or the co-pays. Further, I never carried health insurance from the time I was on my own at 18 until after I turned 40. That's 22+ years of payments I never needed to make because I was never sick or injured enough to let my mom guilt me into going to a doctor. (Yes, I'm a typical male. My arm could be falling off... "it's only a flesh wound!")
22 years times 12 months times "just" $50... $13,200 saved right there. At a more likely $120/mo, it's closer to $31,680. It was a gamble, but one that paid off for me. Why aren't other allowed the FREEDOM to make the same choices and decisions for themselves, Ms First Lady?
They can come after your estate assets (including your real property) even in cases where you have already transferred it to your children in anticipation of death.
Of course, after fifty years of Communist rule you won't have any assets to be confiscated so it will be a moot point. But in the meantime, you'll get the best of "free" socialist health care, Comrade!
So, a young person with no assets who is unlucky enough to get hurt of seriously ill, would be better off running up the debt on Medicaid and then declaring bankruptcy to void future repayment.
Knuckleheads? At age 19 My then husband and I had a son...we had no insurance. (This was 1970)...how did we EVER manage without government? Oh...and we did NOT live with our parents either. Democrats want knuckleheads ... it is they who make the best slaves.
