Michelle Obama Gets Reporter Fired for Comparing Her to an Ape

"Univision host who compared Michelle Obama to characters in the movie “Planet of the Apes” alleged Thursday that he was fired after the network received a complaint from the White House.

In a broadcast on Wednesday, Figueroa said, “Michelle Obama looks like she’s part of the cast of ‘Planet of the Apes.'” Figueroa made the comments as a photo of the first lady was shown on screen."

She isn't smart enough or good looking enough to be in Planet of the Apes so I have to completely disagree with the reporter.

Univision supports illegals and she is a wookie not an ape . At least do accurate reporting

I remember the story when the guy said it and I seem to recall it was a reference to her wardrobe or hair style not her race.

But in the old America the decision to fire him would have been only the networks and they would have told the Whitehouse to pound sand.  Now, you can say anything you want as long as it's what everyone should hear.

You would think a reporter would be smarter than that.

Well, I guess sometimes you can serve as a good example of what not to do to others.

Hah

But seriously if he'd made a comment like that about any conservative First Lady the libtards would cheer him on. And they'd let it slide.


I guess the zero family consider themselves too elite to be mocked by peons. So they have to punish people for exercising the first amendment.

Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime: the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.

We're already condemned as racists so it really doesn't matter any more.

Because Bush clearly didn't look like a chimp, it was just low humor.

Michelle, on the other hand,....

but not a word out of the WH when people on the right are called Hitler.

Oh and Univision is running its own political commercials saying "vote for someone like me" and they are all Spanish or black people.
Anyone else ever see ABC, CBS, NBS, FOX etc run their own add advocating people to vote?

What an idiot.  Dude, you work for Univision, which is the unabashed Spanish-language propaganda arm of the Democratic Party.  Hell, the Dems parked Henry Cisneros there as COO after he got kicked out of office for lying to the FBI.  That is how tight the connection is.
