Why a brotha gotta be like that? He just straight up lied about Michelle Obama. When has anyone ever heard her expressing “militant anger” or dismissive cynicism. You don’t become an Ivy League grad, top attorney and successful executive in America expressing militant anger, ya dig?

Thanks Juan for going on Fox News and kneecapping Michelle through continuing misperceptions and stereotypes about strong, intelligent and compassionate black women. I’m sure your mama is so proud.

Here’s the quote:

WILLIAMS: Well, she’s got to be herself, but I do not think she can go for it all out in terms of this kind of militant anger that she sometimes uses, you know. She can be, it seems, rather cynical or dismissive of people. In fact, I think that’s one of the things she’s going to say tonight is, when she first met Barack Obama, she didn’t think much of this kid who was from Hawaii, although they both were Harvard Law graduates. And so she’s going to say, “You know what? I got to know him, and then I was impressed, and that is how you can get to know him, and you’ll see that there’s real substance to him.” That’s going to — but to come back to her own issues. I don’t think she wants to get anywhere near the race issue, anywhere near the militance issue.

I’m in the Pepsi Center bloggers lounge. Almost got an interview with Deval Patrick! But not quite. I’m headed to the Hall now to be with the people and get ready for Hillary Clinton’s speech.
