Michelle Obama To Black Voters: Don’t Think, Vote For Dems, Then Celebrate With Fried Chicken

First lady Michelle Obama has a message to black voters: Don’t worry about what candidates have done or said– just vote for the Democrats.

On TV One, a network operating under the motto “Where Black Life Unfolds,” the first lady told “News One Daily” host Roland Martin, “And that’s my message to voters, this isn’t about Barack, it’s not about person on that ballot– its about you. And for most of the people we are talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on, regardless of who said what or did this– that shouldn’t even come into the equation.”

In the full audio of the interview, Michelle Obama gives everyone who votes permission to eat fried chicken.

Martin asked (at 7:15), “So can we, if we go out to the polls, can we, say, we have a souls to polls on Sunday, can we do soul food after we vote?”

Obama responded, “Absolutely. I give everyone full permission to eat some fried chicken after they vote. Only after, if you haven’t voted… You make a good point. Because I am, I do talk about health. But I think that a good victory for Democrats on Tuesday, you know, should be rewarded with some fried chicken.”

Voting by race is so offensive. The "white vote"...can you imagine if Laura Bush had said such a thing? as if the content of my character is classified by the shade of my skin? For a person, black, pink or green, to say, "black people, vote Democrat because they support you." Is offensive to anyone with a brain. Talk about racism!

Doesn't matter who says what, just vote for a Dem?

That is so anti-American, I threw up.

Fried chicken? If any of our white former First Ladies had said that (for the same reason as Michelle) OMG!!!!!!!!!!

Why is this allowed? Why can't we have an all white TV station, or say what is on our mind? So glad I am old and going to die soon, the America I loved is gone, so sad for my kids. Maybe the nuts in the middle east will start WW III and end all of the suffering.
