Michelle Obama Let a Protester Have It and I Approve!

People gon learn that folks got limits. According to the Washington Post, Michelle Obama was speaking at a private fundraiser when a lesbian activist named Ellen Hurtz kept interrupting her. She wanted POTUS Obama to sign an anti-discrimination executive order.

Wells, that wasn’t the time for her to be showing out and clearly, FLOTUS wasn’t here (nor there nor anywhere) for that. So she left where she was standing and stood in front of the woman and said:

“One of the things that I don’t do well is this. Do you understand? Listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”

OOP!!! Like a REAL G! Apparently, people asked Michelle to stay and Ellen was showed the door, and I hope given the suggestion that it better not hit her where the good Lord split her. Cuz… WELP. And afterwards, the lady talmbout she was “taken aback” by Michelle stepping to her because she paid $500 to be there.

Michelle Obama

An unrelated pic of Michelle looking like “AND?!? Whatchu gon do?”

AND?!? $500 doesn’t mean you could be incredibly rude and make demands of the First Lady, who isn’t even in charge of policymaking. Ma’am, $500 doesn’t buy you a get out of good sense card. You better have several seats! Iunno whatchu thought THIS was. She was taken aback that she thought she could talk AT Michelle with no types of repercussions. Don’t come for Michelle when she ain’t send for you.

See? The thing is that people forget she’s from Chicago. Michelle LaVaughn Robinson ain’t here to take your shit. You act a fool and she might embarrass you. Plus, she ain’t never scurred. Don’t be fooled by the degrees and the poise and class she shows regularly. Ellen tried it and got what she deserved.

FLOTUS doesn’t have to keep taking the crap people hurl her way. Barack might need to be nice because he’s all leader of the free world game proper but Michelle ain’t the one in office. She has a limit and folks test it. Remember this epic side-eye she gave John Boehner on inauguration day?

Michelle Obama Boehner side-eye gif

She’s like “Boy, bye!” Things that Michele Obama has time for: NOT that.

I hope to all that is good and holy that Michelle isn’t pressured to apologize for this incident. I really do. Because people are great for talmbout how their feelings are hurt but they were nowhere to be found as folks hurled insults at her, calling her a monkey and all other awful epithets. DONTCHU APOLOGIZE, SHELLY!!!

I’m just about sick and tired of the amount of disrespect that is shown to the Obamas. No other President or First Lady has been exposed to such utmost tomfoolery. Racist donkeys and asses cannot help themselves but be mad that our President is Black, his house is White and if he had a lambo, it’d probably be blue.

On the last day of Barack’s presidency, he needs to give one last speech and say “Fuck you. Fuck you. YOU COOL. And Fuck you.” Then he should dropkick the White House podium and swag surf into an all night party after telling people “Remember nice Barack? He’s dead.”

hes-dead-obama gif

And I’d even hold his collar as he hits his footwork on his desk in the Oval Office. It’d be good times. There’ll be endless flaming hot cheetos and Mike’s hard lemonade for everyone.

I couldn’t be a politician, yall. Folks like me ain’t meant to run for office. I can’t e’em run to the store. The only running I can do is amok. I’m couthless in Chicago.

“Senator Luvvie. Is it true that you told one of your staffers to go dropkick a teddy bear into traffic if he was mad?” “Yes. Yes I did.”

“Congresswoman Luvvie. Did you really tell your secretary to go cunt punt Glenn Beck?” “I may have. By may, I mean absolutely.”

“Secretary of Defense Luvvie. Did you tell China to kiss your ass?” “Did I? It’s possible. I thought I said it under my breath.”

And if folks said some stuff I didn’t like, I’d be all “SHUT YOUR MOUTH WHEN YOU’RE TALKING TO ME!!!” They wouldn’t know what to do with me. And CSPAN would catch me in proceedings side-eying the hell outta my colleagues. I would be THE WORST! *jean-ralphio voice* the woooorrrssstttttt.

Worst gif

So yeah, whatchu think bout this incident? Do you like how Michelle Obama handled it? What would you have done if this were you? I bet the next person who wants to get froggy with FLOTUS gon think harder before they leap.

What have we learned today, kids? All together: “Don’t come for Michelle when she ain’t send for you.” Cuz she’s gone with the wind fabulous (unlike Kenya Moore). Never forget.

Oh and if you need an image to pin, feel free to use this:


Edit: The audio of the incident is now available for you to listen to.

    The WaPo didn’t have the best part. I was suppose to have gone to that fundraiser, but being on deadline my mother went. I just received the full account from her. Funny thing is. ABC news reached out to me to talk about it after I tweeted a pic of FLOTUS that my mother took. LOL I just emailed the folks at ABC with my mother’s account.

    If this woman has EVER experienced any disrespect in her life for who she is, she should be doubly ashamed of the lack of respect she showed First Lady Obama.

    Kudos to Mrs. Obama on how she handled this because we all know, this could have been a lot worse with someone else. As always Mrs. Obama showed grace and charm in this incident with a little bit of “I a’int the one.” She left it to the audience to make their choice. Nice! Because she knew what the choice would be.

    So, if the Boehner side-eye wasn’t enough, let this incident be a reminder to folks who want to play the fool.

    • LaToya

      I so agree with you on this…they really don’t know who they are dealing with and need to take a seat way in the back before FLOTUS show them she is from slap a hoe Chi-town…I loved how she dealt with this matter, although it was pilotly said to miss Ellen to “SHUT THE HELL UP” her statement also said very boldly “FIGHT GO WITH IT”…Loving FLOTUS so classy and sassy….do you miss thang!!

      • AfroTapp
        June 5, 2013 at 3:01 pm

        I don’t think she was being disrespectful nor should Ellen have been lumped in with the racists that she and President Obama have had to endure. It was a protest. You feel you are shut out of meaning debate regarding issues important to you so you voice them in places where you know the policymaker and constituents will be present. The problem is FLOTUS is influential, but not a policy maker. So unless Ellen was protesting something that Ms.Obama said or political position that she has taken it is both a waste of energy, time and misdirected protesting. I will say since Ms.Obama is not a politician she handled it in a way that the protester probably had not trained for. It was very effective, quick and too the point. Moreover, since the subject at the time was on children the timing of the protester was off. It seems though she may have been talking at the time Michelle Obama was saying the children that is why she repeated it so often and then she had had enough and addressed it. I wish more folk would interrupt politicians about incarceration, shootings and police brutality in their local communities and nationally.

        • nichole
          June 5, 2013 at 6:35 pm

          I don’t know Ellen Sturtz so I can’t say that she is a racist or not. I can say that her “protest” was ill-timed and misdirected. And it was disrespectful.

          By interrupting Mrs. Obama I wonder if Ms. Sturtz will ever be able to really be heard. I’m sure she has lost any credibility.

      I agree with you Carm. The Obama family have had to deal with alot of B.S. and they did it with class and grace and a smile. You know darn well when people went after Malia and Sasha FLOTUS had to hold her peace, and she see the B.S. her husband has to deal with everyday, even from people he have help like the LGBT community. But what this protester did was un-call for, FLOTUS is not the President, she doesn’t sign any bills, so the purpose of going after her was what. The protester didn’t expect to get a push back. I’m proud of FLOTUS, very proud.

    who you tellin’.

    Clown thought somebody was playing with her.

    NOBODY is playing with her.

    Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama put her ass in check, and next thing you know…she does what punk ass biyotches do – they start whining.

    She thought she was all ‘ big and bad’

    Michelle was being polite, she could have read her for filth. How can you get your point across if you’re yelling over someone else while they’re giving a speech? How disrespectful of her to ASSume that she had the right to interrupt the FLOTUS while she was talking. How many times has the FLOTUS told folks she’s not here for the BS? She has said in previous interviews in so many words and the POTUS backed her that she is not, she has never been, nor will she ever be THE ONE to try.

    Let’s be clear about who GetEqual is and how informed they are on issues of race (spoiler alert: they aren’t):

    While attending Michelangelo Signorile’s LGBT Leadership Town Hall this April, GetEQUAL member Chastity Kirven noticed two things. First, that mainstream LGBT leadership not only seems okay with the government’s slow movement on our issues but also wants other queers to accept it as well. Secondly, Kirven realized that in a room of 60 activists she was only one of three people of color. Even the panel itself had only one person of color — Pam Spaulding of Pam’s House Blend. So Kirven stepped up to the mic to ask how the LGBT rights movement could more fully represent the actual diversity existing within our community. But instead of having her concerns addressed, Kirven was told they didn’t have enough time to answer her, and would she please ask her question “next time,” whenever that was.

    On the way home, Kirven complained about what happened and was told by one of her GetEQUAL cohorts, “Whenever you play the race card, you drag the gay rights movement down. We have too much to do and don’t have time to have this conversation now.”

    • ktzmiao
      June 4, 2013 at 11:24 pm

      And yet they are shocked when they can’t get black civil rights organizations to support their cause. Forget any moral issues, they haven’t seriously engaged the community except to ask for foot soldiers to support their cause,,, uh no,,, we are not sitting around waiting for the chance to be The Help,,,

      June 5, 2013 at 1:48 pm

      I am so glad you brought this up! I cannot stand when these organization act like “you’re playing the race card” when you discuss issues of diversity. Surprise, surprise queer people of color exist. Not ONLY do they exist they are more likely to suffer from homelessness, poverty, unemployment, lack of access to healthcare, etc. If that is not a serious issue for queer organizations then they need to say they only care about white queers, and stop trying to represent the entire community. Same with white feminists, but that’s another issue for another day.

    What I’m thinking is this: if I pay half a grand for some shit why on EARTH would I miss what the guest speaker is saying by over talking them??? Didnt you come to hear the guest speaker speak full, complete, and uninterrupted sentences? So you paid $500 to shout at the person you came to see and get put out accomplishing nothing but make an ass of yourself? How? Why? And I know we have to stand up for our rights since ppl stay intent on begrudging them, but I when I saw a pic of Michele in Target like ain’t nobody gonna stop me from doing wtf I wanna do I knew she was not to be fucked with.

    All the questionable things GWB did, folk left Librarian Laura alone. The only FLOTUS I know off that was directly petitioned about anything important policy-wise was Eleanor Roosevelt and that was in the most polite and solicitous terms by black groups via letters.

The nerve of that rich bitch trying to act as if she is deprived of her rights when POB is and has been the only one in her lifetime working hard to make things equal for all. The nerve…….Michelle,please donot apologize to that rude person. Kris Krispy cusses and yells at folks whenever he damn well please….no apology. That Old Coot McNastyMcCain lies and says dumb shit to smart people all the time….no apology.
    Enough is enough of the outright disrespect. Did that “privileged fool” yell at Laura Bush during the eight years she was in the WH? I am sure “Miss Daisy” did not just realize yesterday she was LGBT and her right were being overlooked. Where was her yelling and screaming eight years ago? Sit your “taken aback” ass down.

No discussion about that, nope, just that FOTUS was “disrespected” by another woman.

          First of the all it is rude to talk over a speaker. Especially the First lady of the United States. 5,000 is a drop in the bucket as far as campaign donations. Since it said nothing about donations, I think you meant the 500 ticket. Its a fundraiser she paid the money to support the cause still she doesn’t get to be rude. Fundraisers are 10,000 and 25,000 dollars a plate, you still don’t get to be rude.

        • June 5, 2013 at 8:12 am

          Apparently you didn’t read the article Crystal because the Washington Post article said this lesbian activist donated 5,000 dollars, that’s a drop in the bucket? Maybe to rich liberals like yourself perhaps. But I don’t know your financial situation. She was demanding an executive order from the president not a law, which he can do to ban employment discrimination at least on the Federal level. So spare me the little lecture about the balance of powers in the US, I know it very well. Its also lame to say FLOTUS doesn’t have influence when the First Lady since Eleanor Roosevelt has taken a prominent role in using her symbolism behind campaigns, she could easily pressure the POTUS much in the same way Eleanor did to get Black people in the WPA programs. As for it being “rude”, I think it’s rude the president signed NDAA, has unilaterally used drone strikes to kill 3,000 people in Afghanistan and Pakistan, most of whom are innocent women and children, deported more immigrants than any president in history, talks down to black people and funded Islamic extremists in Libya and now Syria. If this was GWB you would be singing a diff tune.

          I read this blog. It is a the bucket compared to the donations given by other people. The point is people have donated millions to the Obamas and haven’t been ride and disrespectful so why did she feel 5000 would allow how to. I see you keep referring to people as liberals. Is that supposed to be an insult. FLOTUS has extreme influence over the POTUS of course, that why common sense would dictate that you would make a request of her in proper manner, not like a child throwing a tantrum. It is socially unacceptable to speak over someone. She is the FOTUS she deserves respect. Just because you don’t agree with the POTUS policy, doesn’t mean she wasn’t out of order. The thing that gets get me with people is if you don’t agree with the POTUS actions what are you doing about it. The US has protest process. Have you have written your Congressman? Sent a letter to the White House? Organized a group? Attacking reading on a pro Obama blog is fruitless. As for Michelle campaign is it childhood obesity. It’s never been the practice of the FLOTUS to whisper in the POTUS ear this isn’t the hookup. She COULD pressure POTUS to kowtow to the protestor’s demands but that’s not how it done. As adults we don’t stomp when we don’t get our way. If you cause a disruption then you get thrown out.

          “But notice that a rich liberal who gave $5,000 to the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign is suddenly shunned by Michelle Obama and liberal hardliners after using this venue to call for the end of employment discrimination. No discussion about that, nope, just that FOTUS was “disrespected” by another woman”

          Your words.

          The rich liberal was wrong “she used this venue to call for the end of employment discrimination” which isn’t the right way. In case you missed you third grade social studies lesion the president DOES NOT make and pass laws. There is the three branches of government which work together to ensure checks and balances. The average person should know that, so she should write a letter to her congressman and follow the proper channels, she wasn’t trying to make change in a proper way she was heckling the first lady and got told about herself. There was a discussion the author pointed out repeatedly that first ladies are in not charge of policymaking. You want to give the woman who yelling at a speaker credit because she is fighting for gay right? If she wanted to fight for gay rights she should have done it the right way. Don’t make her a martyr. The discussion was had did you miss reading comprehension too?

          If the heckler was not so focused on doing things the wrong way, perhaps the “issue” of employment discrimination(ED)might have made the news as a priority. Unfortunately like so many interest groups their “personal” views are more important than the issue. The organization should not have sent a moron to do the job that required someone with more class. They screwed up and probably got put to the back of the line.

Please escort yourself off the blog, Luvvie aint got time for that mess and neither do we. You can stop commenting on other posts like you been here before, because you haven’t.

      First of all, please take your dead horse and your stick and go beat it on some political blog that gives a flying f*ck. Seriously.
      Secondly, no one has time for your derailment. We weren’t talking about the issue which this protester thought was OBVIOUSLY more important than waiting her f*cking turn to speak. We were talking about the fact that she was RUDE AS F*CK, and that the FLOTUS clearly had no time or space for it and let her know that she needed to see herself out.

      Your condescension in your comment is the reason why no one here wants to do little more than mock you and then get you to leave. If you want to educate about an issue, being an asshole is a poor method of teaching.

There may be some who will pull out the ‘Angry Black Woman’ flag (okay, there WILL be plenty) but who cares? She exercised her ability to let a ninja know she is not to be F-ed with.

    Kudos to FLOTUS for pulling the Busta Rhymes (Whoo Ha! I got you all in Check!).

    My issue comes from the statement the woman gave after… claiming she was “taken aback” and later saying that FLOTUS “..thought she was going to make an example of me or something.” By implying that she was scared, this woman is further advancing the “Angry Black Woman” stereotype that has plagued this FLOTUS and millions of other unapologetic, assertive and successful Black Women. That woman knew what she was doing with her actions, and following statement, and I for one call BS!!

    FLOTUS & The Heckler: South Side Chicago In The D.C. House!


    A few blogs ensued with their paraphrased version and spin. The funniest, of course, coming from the blog Awesomely Luvvie. However, there is an element that is missing from each reported and paraphrased postings and I don’t need a hot topics team to dig around (Sorry Wendy). I got something better. My MOMMA!

    Ok so… members of the D.C. Federation of Democratic Women (an organization that my mother and I are members of) were invited to the fundraiser. A selective few attended, including my mother. The fundraiser was at the private residence of a lawyer and veterinarian, both are originally from Chicago. I actually drove her to the event immediately after picking up my daughter from school. A couple of hours later I noticed she posted photos of the event on Facebook. I downloaded one of the pictures she took of the First Lady and shared it on Twitter; to say that the members of the D.C. Federation got to hang out with “FLOTUS” (First Lady of the United States – you’d be surprise to know how many don’t know that acronym). An hour or so later, I checked Twitter and saw that a reporter and editor from ABC News had reached out to me. They asked me about the heckler and the editor immediately followed both my accounts on Twitter; my Mahoganie_Jade and professional account. We emailed back and forth for a minute as I explained that I wasn’t at the event, but my mother was and could best give an account about what happened.

    And she did…..

    According to my mother:

    There were two hecklers. The first heckler was a guy shouting at DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. His yelling seemed to have shaken Schultz. She was thrown off track for a minute, but as the crowd called for him to stop, the guy must have noticed that Secret Service had pointed him out. One of the officers literally pointed at him and the guy quieted down. Right after, the second heckler, a woman, yelled “Let him speak I want to hear what he has to say.” The crowd tells her to hush and she quiets down. Schultz is able to continue and finish. Once Mrs. Obama was on the podium to speak, after naming all the policies and initiatives President Obama has done, second heckler interrupts Mrs. Obama. Mrs. Obama steps back from the lectern and with arms raised she says “This is what I don’t well.” Second heckler keeps going and Mrs. Obama proceeds to walk away from lectern with arms raised repeating “I don’t do this.” Crowd tries to get the heckler to be quiet or leave. After a few guests instigate “South Side Chicago is in the house” (referring to Obama’s home) crowd starts to chant “South Side Chicago.” This seems to pump or energize Mrs. Obama. She comes down from the podium and looks at second heckler and tells them “It’s either going to be you or me. If you want to speak, I’ll leave.” Crowd almost immediately commands that heckler leaves and Mrs. Obama stays. Heckler is escorted out.

    And THAT’S what went down!

    or the place
    nor the person to confront.
    Their are gay children out there that need support too. FLOTUS was speaking for them as well.
