Michelle Obama: ‘Young People are Knuckleheads’

Michelle Obama, appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, referred to young people as, “knuckleheads.”

In a segment clearly designed as a propaganda opportunity to convince young people to sign up for Obamacare (actually that word never comes up, for some reason, but is referred to only as the legal name, the Affordable Care Act).

The First Lady, desperate to rescue failing Obamacare, because youth are not signing up in the quantities necessary to float the system, even goes to the extreme of calling any youth (over age 26) who doesn’t sign up for Obamacare a “knucklehead.” 

Jimmy Fallon: While you’re here, I have to talk to you — I want to talk to you about the Affordable Care Act. March, is there a deadline?
Michelle Obama: The end of March, absolutely, yes it is.
Jimmy Fallon: Because a lot of young people watch our show. Would you like to tell me — why would they — because a lot people don’t have the money to spend on this.
Michelle Obama: Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, young people can stay on their parents’ insurance until they are 26. But once they hit 26, they’re on their own and a lot of young people think they are invincible. But the truth is, young people are knuckleheads, you know?
