Lagerfeld called out for misquoting first lady (Big Black A**)

Scratch Karl Lagerfeld’s name off any future State Dinner guest lists. The famed fashion designer may be in hot water with the East Wing for an embarrassing quote that he incorrectly attributed to first lady Michelle Obama in a recent interview.

Lagerfeld, the creative director for Chanel, told Metro on Monday, “My favorite line of Mrs. Obama is when a journalist asked her if she thought her skirts were not too tight and she answered, ‘Why you don't like my big black ass?’” (The taped interview took place in Paris and was conducted in English, according to Metro USA editor-in-chief Tony Metcalf.)

Shooting down Lagerfeld’s story, Kristina Schake, the first lady’s communications director, issued this response: “Mrs. Obama never made that statement.”

He may have an odd way of expressing it, but Lagerfeld actually really likes the first lady. “I'm a big fan of Mrs. Obama – and her face, I think, is magical,” he gushed in the same interview. Asked if President Obama deserves another term, Lagerfeld replied, “Yes he does, especially because of Mrs. Obama.”

Lagerfeld didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

That statement alone is proof this guy has the IQ of a turnip.

Don’t tell the president about the old “Nacht und Nibel” program — he may try to start one here.

He’s a fashion designer! Can’t ask for someone more vacuous and ill informed... well... maybe an actor!

It was "Nacht und Nebel."

Actually started rather late in the Third Reich's trajectory. Hitler handed the order for Nacht und Nebel on 7 December 1941, a day on which the United States had it's attention on other matters.

‘Why you don't like my big black ass?’”

Lagerfeld replied, “Well, I didn't vote for him in 2008 . . .”

He'd probably prefer her husband's.

“I'm a big fan of Mrs. Obama – and her face, I think, is magical,”

It would take fifty magic wands banging her in the face to make it pretty.

Growing up she got daily beatings with an ugly stick.
