Bad news, everybody!
Looks like last night's debate is going to have to declared a forfeit — please get to work scrubbing all memory of it from your mind — on account of a certain First Lady of the United States who can't keep her hands from slapping together loudly in a repeated rhythmic fashion…
At the second presidential debate on Tuesday night, a camera caught first lady Michelle Obama clapping after moderator Candy Crowley told Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney that President Obama called the Benghazi attack an "act of terror" soon after the attack on the U.S. consulate.
Nearly all of the audible applause came from those sitting away from the actual debate, but when Fox News' camera shot moved to a bird's-eye view it became apparent that the only applause from the participating debate audience came from first lady Michelle Obama…
According to the rules both campaigns agreed to, or the memorandum of understanding (MOA), there is to be no clapping from members of the debate audience.
Oh, these First Ladies! They think that just because their husband is the political leader of a world power that they can just go around clapping at whatever tickles their fancy whenever their heart commands it! It's like they live in a different world full of claps and applause and ovations! It sickens me.
Well, now, due to your wanton careless clapping, your husband must be considered the loser of last night's debate. I hope that makes you happy, Madam First Lady.
