During the Q & A portion of Rush Limbaugh’s radio show last week, the pundit entertained a caller who wanted to talk about Michelle Obama’s style, Mediaite writes.
The woman, identified only as Laura from Bremerton, Washington, rasped, “I am so sick and tired of hearing about our First Lady and her fashions. Every time I see her and they start talking about how fashionable she is and the colors she wears, I think about that old story, ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes.'” She added, “Every time [Michelle] dresses in yellow, I keep expecting some little kid to pop up and say, ‘She looks like a bowl of mustard.'”
Rush asks Laura to dig deeper on the color issue, to which she responds, if the media does anything other than praise Michelle, “they’ll be marked as racist, probably.” Oh, wait…you mean the clothing color issue. The caller fielded that one, too. She explained, “My particular skin color, I cannot wear orange. Because it makes me look orange. My cousin is a beautiful redhead and she cannot wear different shades of red.” Rush confessed he, himself, was donning an orange polo, but is typically told “it’s a little bit of a too soft pastel color for me.”
Then Rush veers toward discussing the First Lady’s figure. He remarks, “I’m not going to say what I think about her shape. I’m not really sure what it is. I can’t win this.”
