An Obama Hater Update

Michelle Obama paid her respects for the late king of Saudi Arabia along with her husband Barack Obama on Tuesday.

Yes, Michelle Obama is in he presence of Saudi royalty and she did not cover er hair.  UUUUUM, and hate rolled like the 1950s movie "The Blob."  Many on the Right criticized the FLOTUS for not respecting the Saudi King.

MSNBC's Ronan Farrow even host a segment on the FLOTUSA decision stand as a on-Muslim high level visitor from the US. If Mrs. Obama had adorned traditional Muslim hair cover, the Right would have surely labelled her a Muslim. 

It is amazing the extent to which the Right is completely out of touch with technology and archived imagery.  As you view a few images below be mindful of our commitment to fair and balanced where possible. We have mixed the images conservative and progressive with an additional shot of an international leader.

Hating the Obama is commonplace among people who have suffered six years of acid reflux induced by his 2008 election. It is an ugly state of mind, and it is a tool of the Right while ensuring high media ratings for Fox News and Right-wing radio.
