Republican Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner Insults Michelle Obama's ' Big Butt '!

Jim Sensenbrenner Michelle Obama

We know we’re in a nasty political climate but bi-partisanship has gone way, way too far when a Republican Congressman attacks the First Lady for having a ‘large posterior.’

Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner you are a rude dude. You recently were heard complaining loudly at the Delta Crown lounge at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., that Michelle Obama should practice what she preaches with her “Let’s Move” campaign, promoting healthy eating and exercise habits.

“She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself,” he complained on the phone.

In other words, Congressman Sensenbrenner — you had the nerve to say that the nation’s First Lady has a big butt! In fact, the same Congressman was heard at a church bazaar earlier that week complaining again about Michelle Obama’s exercise campaign and referencing her “big butt”!

Congressman, your behavior is wrong on so many levels, I am completely horrified.

#1) It is rude for ANY man to comment on what he perceives as ANY woman’s figure flaws.

#2) It is hellacious behavior to do this to our First Lady, who deserves your respect. Her husband was elected by the American people and she graciously works to represent our country internationally and to help as many Americans as she can, in her unpaid position.

#3) Michelle Obama is NOT a political figure. She is not out there attacking you or any other Republicans and should not be the subject of  personal attack. Her efforts to reduce obesity especially childhood obesity are HUGELY commendable because we have a HUGE problem in this country. Over 33.8 percent of U.S. adults are obese ,as are 17 percent of children and teens.

#4) Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. You sir, ARE FAT! Apparently, one of your favorite foods is cheetos and it shows! If you were smart, you would get with Michelle Obama’s program and get moving!

#5) The disrespect you showed for the First Lady is actually disrespect for our institution of the Presidency itself. Is that what you wanted to show? Would you show equal disrespect for a Republican First Lady and how would you feel if a Democrat attacked a Republican First Lady? Actually how would you feel if someone said this about YOUR wife? You’d probably be the first to scream about it.

#6) Mrs. Obama is in fantastic shape and does NOT have a large derriere. She is a natural pear-shape, which means that she is genetically built to be wider through her hips and  backside, like millions of American women, including Kim Kardashian and J lo. Insulting Michelle Obama’s butt is the same as insulting those millions of American women.

Now, Congressman Sensenbrenner, you’ve issued an apology under massive pressure saying “I regret my inappropriate comment and I have sent a personal note to the First Lady apologizing.”

Guess what Congressman — I don’t accept your apology! Maybe Mrs. Obama is more forgiving.

Yes she does have a big behind which is a normal attribute of the African American woman. Many women buy silicone pads to try to make their own flat behinds look like hers. She is far from obese. Obesity is when someone has a big fat stomach plopped on top of a big fat but and grossly shaped thighs and double chins. Those who complain about Michele’s butt are trying to compare her to the Caucasian idea of beauty…unfortunately, that idea of beauty is not universal.

You belong to the group that needs to be isolated for making normal size women become anorexic. She is not obese. She is not a size o but she is far from obesity. you should check into rehab anorexic!

He remarked this way because she is black. If the first lady would have been a white irrespective of Democrat or Republican he would not have remarked this way.

He should not be a Congressman anymore. He should not do politics anymore, and we should not vote for him. If he has no respect for his first lady then he does not have any respect for any lady, even for his wife and daughter (if he has any).

It’s just like a representative of the “Christian” right to be so rude. Sensenbrenner is fat, Mrs. Obama is fit. She absolutely does practice what she preaches. Those who claim differently are probably as obese as Sensenbrenner and just jealous.

Why these people attack the First Lady on such a personal level is beyond me. I don’t remember anyone attacking Laura’s appearance.

I DO remember the self-righteous attacking Hillary’s hair, when she was First Lady. Rush Limbaugh said that Chelsea was ugly — didn’t he call her a dog or something like that? So this childish behavior is nothing new for the high-and-mighty hypocrites.

I think it’s a good thing when they show their true colors like this. What would Jesus do? Ha!

Milo you are an idiot and should shut up. People like you pollute public discuss. As for Mr. Sensenbrener, this is the height of disrespect to the first lady of the United States. I cannot believe such junk came out of the mouth of a sitting congressman (who by the way is FAT!). Shame on you Mr. Sensenbrener. Only a shameless racist would say such a disgusting thing about any first lady of the United States. You have brought shame and dishonor to your office and should resign!

Who is this man to talk when he has no neck!!..lol…I mean, sure Michelle isn’t the best, but what he said was very rude, disrespectful & out of line. He shouldn’t be calling anyone anything, when he is fat himself. It shouldn’t matter if you’re a democrat or republican, because either way it was out of line & no woman would like to be called anything of those lines, especially by some man who looks like he does..maybe he needs to go exercise himself, cause he isn’t really on the slim side either..lol

Mr. Sensenbrenner is indiscreet, rude,
and apparently not very bright. His
conduct was most unbecoming of someone in
his position. He insulted the First Lady
TWICE in a PUBLIC setting. In forums
Which he should have known might be
overheard. I agree, Mrs. Obama should
ignore him & his apology. His judgment
& impulse control are questionable!

Jim Sensenbrenner has no room to talk. He is fat and a perfect example of what some of the republicans represent. Ignorant selfish people. Our first family is beautiful, real and our president is still trying to clean up this mess that the last person that held house left us in. Jim Sensenbrenner has a big butt, waiste and head. What!

Look at the faces michele is slim and Jim is fat and must weigt at least 60lb to much. If you don’t know female often has a bigger buttom than male. That’s basically how nature build man. So buttom line is that Mr. Jim Sensenbrenner do not know what he is talking about. That is often seen with the republicans it’s the same in Denmark.

Michele Obama does have a disproportionate body with a small bust and large behind. Mrs. Obama should live what she preaches. Paula Dean commented that Michele ate more than any other guest ever has while a guest on her show. Michele O. should live up to her talk. Everyone in the world notices how big she is, and this is accentuated when she stands next to her husband. Just because the liberal media doesn’t comment on it doesn’t mean it’s not there. It’s there and its LARGE!

You got some nerve. You dont know what our first lady is doing and if she was a skinny stick you still wouldnt be happy. The fact she is working on helping others is great. What are you doing? Nothing but running your mouth. Sat down somewhere and give us all a break.

I just love how men think its their job to dictate what a womans body should look like. Appearenty he unlike most men know nothing about the general make up of the female anatomy… I would like for the congressman to back through our nations history of first ladies…ummmmm yeah FAIL. Other than Jackie O….you see my point. Mrs. Obama has a natural shape that is seen everyday, and trust me like any other woman probably struggles with her look because of it, regardless if her butt is big or not in his or anyone elses opinion, she looks great the way she is, and shouldn’t have to defend it. Believing that our kids need to eat healthier for their betterment is a great campaign and all parents should want that for their own kids period.

Bonnie, you’re just saying that because you’re a democrat. All Obama has done is ruin our country even more. And Michelle Obama is just freaking judgmental– so someone’s obese, it’s none of her frickin’ business. And yes, her butt IS huge.

First of all, I do think the Congressman was out of line to make this comment – however, it galls me that some people commenting here blame the Republicans in general – how fast we forget what awful, derogatory things the Dems have said about Republican women like Sarah Palin for example. Politics is so out of control and the media lies to us all the time – just do your research and homework and don’t believe all that your hear or read.

“you sir, ARE FAT!” hahaha… omg bonnie. that is priceless. (and true, of course!) exactly what does this guy see in the mirror if he thinks he can call anyone fat, much less the first lady, who happens to be in fantastic shape- and that large posterior is primarily MUSCLE. it’s so hard to like men sometimes- cuz they all do this stuff, regardless of how fat they are. somehow, it’s okay for men to be fat, but if a woman isn’t anorexic, it’s every fat man’s place to point it out. i’d like to spit in his face, if he were worth one more ounce of my time.

Congressman Sensenbrenner is another GOP member that is a bigot even though he would never admit it. The majority of the GOP basically feel the same way, it’s just that many of them don’t get caught shooting their mouths off in public!! All you have to do is look at their policies to see their true feeling when it comes to women, the poor and minorities. They do like the rich like Donald Trump and their corporate campaign donors that’s for sure!!

i’m sorry you feel this way mike. i couldn’t disagree more and think it’s a shame that people are so irrational when it comes to politics. there are crazy republicans, and crazy democrats. there are plenty in the middle of each party that aren’t very much different from their opposing party’s counterpart. for example, a lot of new england republicans are in the party because they are libertarians- not bigots. and old-timers are in the party b/c in their generation it was about state rights and strong defense/military, and being fiscally conservative. i have a hard time calling those old-timers who fought for us in WWII bigots just b/c they’re in the republican party. you should think through the stuff that comes out of your mouth before you yourself make such ill-informed comments. did you know that the definition of a bigot is someone with a strong opinion that is intolerant of opinions other than their own? you understand that you are the textbook definition of a bigot, right?

Well lets call your old timers and some young timers what they are “racist” , you have never heard such statements and attacks on any other persons that held that position in the White House.This is one of the reasons why this country is falling because of racsism. Most republicans and their supporters refuse to work with the President even if he is right hoping that without there support he would become a one time President and their efforts are not paying off so now they attack the First Lady. The wise old timers I know would say that ” when throwing dirt on somebody else you get dirty and when digging a hole for someone else you might fall in” now that sounds like the republians and their supporters that I have been hearing ever since the President and his family has been in office.

I wasn’t talking about Colin Powell he was for the President and his family. I’m talking about the ones thats been causing all of the confusion because the family is black.You don’t accept the truth so you try on a small scale to play games with words to make a person feel small but it does not bother me, right is right ,wrong is wrong.Now again tell me what other First Lady was talk about this way in the history of america ? If you think its ok then you need to look in the mirror ,you might see a racist for the first time or maybe you are already familiar with him.

well, it sort of is a male/female thing jack. females are always criticized b/c of their appearance and weight. men do not get the same scrutiny. the very idea that a fat pig such as himself has the gall to call a curvy woman (who is in shame) fat (he actually used the words, “bigg butt” and “large posterior”) is sort of sexist. i can appreciate how that’d be hard to understand— but as a woman who has watched this crap for decades, it is annoying, and sexist.

Mr. Smalls!!!!!!!! If you believe what he said was appropriate, then you are grossly blinded as a “radical Republican.” Mr. Sensenbrenner is not only FAT, but very unattractive as well!! Even if he lost weight, nothing would help him.

Michelly Obama is in good physical condition. She can’t change her body type, and well, Mr. Sensenbrenner can’t change his UGLY.

You talk about Vicki’s statement of truth but agree with Sensenbreeners statements about the First Lady, statements made by a fat out of shape,ugly person who need to go to the white house to get health advice from the First Lady.A lady that shows young people how to grow food, choose the right food to eat and she shows them how and why they should exercise by example, she’s doing it all with them. What are you doing to help young people, old people, anybody? What bothers me about Sensenbreener and people like yourself is that you attack women. I think Vicki is a very smart person ,I believe that you are a very, very STUPID BOY!!!!
