Author and political commentator Tammy Bruce recently guest hosted for conservative commentator Laura Ingraham’s radio show and she didn’t take too kindly to First Lady Michelle Obama’s recent meeting with Anacostia High School students in Washington, D.C.
Bruce called the Obamas “Trash in the White House.”

From the March 23 broadcast of Talk Radio Network’s The Laura Ingraham Show:
BRUCE: But here’s Michelle Obama explaining to some kids what it was like for her growing up because she sounded like a white person, whatever that means.
OBAMA: I did do my best, getting good grades was always important to me, and it wasn’t because my parents were
BRUCE: It’s all about her.
OBAMA: — hounding me or that they had the expectation, it was just something that I wanted for myself. I wanted an A. And I didn’t care whether it was cool, ‘cause I remember there were kids around my neighborhood who would say, “Ooh, you talk funny, you talk like a white girl.” I heard that growing up my whole life, and I was like I don’t even know what that means, but you know what? I’m still getting my A.
BRUCE: What? What? What — what is that? And then she devolves into that weird fake accent, like Hillary did when talking to black people. What? What is that? That’s, that — you know what that is.
DAVID AFTER DENTIST: Is this going to be forever?
BRUCE: Yeah, that – remember nitrous oxide kid, on You Tube. No it’s not going to be forever, nitrous oxide kid. It’s not. Can you — can you believe that?
OBAMA: So do I need to introduce myself?
BRUCE: What a shame. That must’ve just ruined her damn day. “I wanted the A for myself, and I wanted to do it, and ooh, they said you sounded like a white person, I don’t know what that means, but uhh.” Huh?
Man, oh, man. That’s who he’s married to, what does that tell you? This is what we’ve got — you know what we’ve got? We’ve got trash in the White House. Trash is a, is a thing that is color blind, it can cross all eco — ecosocionomic kind of categories, you can work on Wall Street or work at the Wal-Mart. Trash are people who use other people to get things, who patronize others, who consider you bitter and clingy.
Here was Michelle Obama trying to encourage these students (lord knows D.C. students need strong encouragement) to do well in school and letting them know she’s been in their shoes. It’s a known fact in the black community that black students who do well in school and speak properly are ridiculed by others in the black community. But what does this Bruce woman do? Ridicule Michelle Obama and then procedes to call the Obamas trash.
Tammy Bruce needs to take a good look in the mirror. What will she see? The epitome of trash.
