Michelle Obama calls young people ‘knuckleheads’ (who’d they vote for, anyway?)

The past week I was vacationing with my family on Grand Cayman and Cozumel. I kept track of absolutely nothing while we were gone except for the frigid temperatures we were missing out on back home.

Last night we got home late and bulldozed through at least six inches of snow in the driveway (depression set in rapidly). By the time I got a chance to sit down and turn on the TV, Michelle Obama was on with Jimmy Fallon, who is the new host of the Tonight Show (Dems are salivating). When the discussion turned to Obamacare, FLOTUS said young people need it because they are “knuckleheads”:

Stats from the 2008 election:

This year, 66% of those under age 30 voted for Barack Obama making the disparity between young voters and other age groups larger than in any presidential election since exit polling began in 1972.

And in the 2012 election, 18-29 year olds voted for Obama over Romney 60 percent to 37 percent.

“Knuckleheads.” Hey, maybe she’s right.

If young people continue to avoid enrolling, will “knuckleheads” be elevated to “dipsh*ts” by Michelle Obama’s next appearance with Fallon?
