Presidential Hopeful Michele Bachmann Accuses Questlove, Jimmy Fallon, NBC of Sexism

(AllHipHop News) Late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon has issued an apology to Republican Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, over The Roots’ song choice for her entry music on Monday night’s show.

The popular hip-hop band played a portion of Fishbone’s 1985 song “Lyin’ Ass B**ch,” as Bachmann walked onto the stage to be interviewed by Jimmy Fallon on “The Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon” on November 21.

Yesterday (November 22), Jimmy Fallon apologized to Bachmann via Twitter, for the show’s house band’s’ song choice.

“I’m honored that @michelebachmann was on our show yesterday and I’m so sorry about the intro mess,” Jimmy Fallon tweeted yesterday. “I really hope she comes back.”

While Questlove stopped short of apologizing, he stated that he was sorry if he hurt the presidential hopeful’s feelings, with the Grammy Award winning group’s song choice.

Questlove issued a statement over his song choice, which he labeled as “Snark” on his Twitter account in a later update.

“The performance was a tongue-in-cheek and spur of the moment decision,” Questlove told the Wall Street Journal. “The show was not aware of it and I feel bad if her feelings were hurt. That was not my intention.”

After their apologies, Michele Bachmann appeared on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” and accused NBC of operating with a double standard and not taking action.

Bachmann, who was promoting her book “Core of Conviction,” also hinted that NBC should suspend, or even fire Questlove.

“I think the point is, if that had been Michelle Obama who had come out on the stage, and if that song had been played for Michelle Obama, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized to her and likely they could have fired the drummer, at least suspended him,” Michele Bachman said. “None of that happened from NBC. And this is clearly a form of bias on the part of the Hollywood entertainment elite, but it’s also, I think, sexism as well.”

  • ummm. M. Obama is the first lady, and you are not. So, why do you expect to be treated like one?

  • Hopeful…lol….

  • anemia716

    Ok, Michelle Obama is the FIRST lady.  I don’t care who the president is at the time, but the first lady is off limits in my opinion.  I always show respect to the first lady.  Bachmann, who are you in comparison?

    “fire the drummer”….um that’s Questlove.

    She probably didn’t even know what the song was until someone from her camp or backstage brought it to her attention. haha I doubt she’s even heard of Fishbone. She probably doesn’t even know who Questlove or the Roots are! Of course I’m passion judgement but what do you expect. Leave the first lady out of this. You are just a candidate, you are not in office therefore what makes you think you will get the same treatment as the FIRST LADY?!?!

  • SharksBreath

    She’s a lying ass bitch. I don’t see what’s the problem. She lies about Obama all the time. She was just on the debate saying Obama turned over the CIA to the ACLU.

    Stop lying and you won’t be called a lying ass bitch.

    You lying ass bitch.  

    • GGENERAL

      ROTFLMAO…

  • The comments fugged me up. I’m against every one of them , but have to co-sign them as well.
    It would have been disrespectful if they had done that to Michelle , while her husband was running.

    She is an “elected ” official.
    That $hyt was disrespectful & wack.
    Could have been Cynthia McKinney 

    Still wack juice.

    More proof of the mass media dumbing the population down.
    Would I vote for her? Nah, she looks like she had plastic surgery.
    Vanity is not a quality I look for in an elected official.

    He should have taken the opportunity to seriously introduce the candidate ( via questions )  to his viewers , instead of starting with an obvious slant.

    Fair & Balanced?
    It’s a shame when O’Rielly seems for fair & balanced.

     Too bad Questlove involved.

  • King Cold

    Umm don’t see y she mad. Its a track they performed. So what? They didn’t literally call her a lyin ass bitch so she should shut up and enjoy that lil air time she had smh.

  • GGENERAL

    LMAO…Why do every female politician gotta bring up M.Obama when they feel they been wronged. You a politician, and not a very honest one I might add. Nor are you high enough up on the food change to be comparing yourself to the first lady, current or future. If you are a person who is known to lies, people call you a liar. As other’s have stated, STOP LYING 

  • R_REAL_TALK

    HO CARES SHE WASINT GO NOWHERE ANYWAY LET HER BE PRESIDENT AND SHE WILL LET QUEEN LATIFA ADOPT ALL THE BABIES SHE WANTS TURNING AMERICA OUT WITH THE GG?AY MAFIA???

    BUT FIRST!!!! 

    Fire Bill O’riely, Rush Limbaugh, Don Imus and all them other racist white media representatives.
    Then New Yorker Mag for their slick articles and satires.

  • 7yoyo7

    Let’s not forget how crazy Michele Bachmann is… She has told the media that she spoke to God about 10 times since the age of 18… Sorry lady but you have zero credibility IMO.

    I still can’t understand how politics, consider her as a relevant candidate. Check “Michele Bachmann Says The Darndest Things” on Y0utube, you’ll understand…

  • This chick is a hypocrite like almost all religious fanatics. I guarantee she’s been fucked by over 30 cocks in her life yet she’ll go on tv and preach about how religious she is and how’s she’s a lady of God. She’s a whore, and she probably slept her way to where she is today. Real talk, whenever a woman is away from the kitchen something goes wrong.

  • This hoe!! Can’t believe someone as deranged as this bird can be deemed a “Presidential Hopeful”. SMH. The Roots deserve a round of applause!

  • Best Comment Advanced Dialogue

    They Stunted on Her. I really don’t care who runs for president anymore though because The Federal Reserve controls the government anyway, central banks control the government, Republican and Democratic parties have been overtaken and they’re controlled. You ain’t gettin in office unless you have some secret meetings with them billionaires that are gonna tell you what they want you to do and it ain’t to stimulate the economy.

    • Jovaughn

      I’m confused on this secret meeting that goes on and why would they not want to stimulate the economy??

      • Tbkb

        the Bilderberg group holds meetings to groom politicians before they run. If you don’t have the backing of this group, chances are you will not win the election. Why? Because 90% of the time, the person with the most money wins the election.

        The meetings aren’t actually secret. Many people know of them, and usually there are protests outside of where these meetings are held. BUT, the meeting discussions are secret. Every prominent politician, banker, billionaire has attended these meetings.

        They want to stimulate the economy in the direction that it benefits them, not the people. The EURO was planned and orchestrated by this group. Their ultimate goal is to control the entire planet and run it like a business for their personal profit. They want to divide the world into “Economic Blocks”. The first block was the Euro. Next they’re focusing on the American Union. Then the Asian then African.

        They create recessions to weaken economy’s and make them susceptible to be controlled by a small group of men. They control the economy’s because they control the central banks, the debt, and the credit.

        Its pretty dark shit bro.

        Excellent. Even Though People Know About Those Meetings, They’re still pretty secret if the general public doesn’t know about them.

      • Jovaughn

        I do not think there isn’t anything secret about these meetings only maybe what is actually is being discussed inside is secretive. In the past average white middle class americans did not care about  “OWS” issues until recently when they started experiencing these same issues that other minority groups have experienced for decades.  Now you see opposition towards “wall street” and the 1%  now its time for change. go figure. hmmmmm

        I know one thing, You don’t hear the media talking about “Presidential Hopeful ‘*********’ is heading to such and such city to have a pre-term meeting regarding the persuasion of his actions during a possible run as president of the united states.”

      • Baby_Bluez

        It’s dark and deep indeed. 1913 marked the birth of Central Banking. ‘Coincidentally, WWI took place a year later followed by WWII was a ‘Shake-up we in here type of operation’. Some allied, while others, mainly The Soviets rejected. “The allies, mainly France, England, Portugal and Yes Germany – funded by Americans” started the take over operation in Africa – Why do you think Africans speak French and Portugese? Go figure… Connect the dots folks, educate yourself! There is a alot of reading material out there, it’s up to you to seperate the truth from fiction, or maybe create your own story. A good place to start is the Industrial Revolution. The REAL gangsters (Bancsters- nice name btw) have been work in progress for over a 100 years.

      • Best Comment Advanced Dialogue

        Bankers a.k.a. Banksters (Banker+Gangster) control the media and the government. It’s crazy that my name is BANCSTER because I came up with this name before I really knew about all the Bilderberg Group and The Federal Reserve and It just so happened that I had got educated and started rapping about Political and World issues Then I Took a look at my name and realized that it was connected with the subject matter that I was speaking on and learning about. If that ain’t God and Destiny then I don’t know what is…

    • This is the point Fallon should have made …instead of smoke screening with a diss!
      Still, Quest did P’wned her with a drumbeat!
      LOL-N

      • Best Comment Advanced Dialogue

        That’s one of the many problems in the country; Too many people would rather make jokes about serious situations instead of dealing with them in a serious manner and getting them out of the way so that we can laugh later when life is actually good because we handled business before the situation got out of hand.

    What Questlove did was some bullshit even though I think Bachman is a dumb bitch.  He shouldn’t have did what he did because it was unprofessional and somewhat of a sucker-punch on a woman.  Regardless of how full of shit the woman is Questlove is an employee of Jimmy Fallon’s and he should not be allowed to just do shit on his own without the permission of his boss and he should’ve kept his personal views to himself.  To play some song with an underlying rude message to a guess who has no clue was just wrong in my opinion and bordering on childish & cowardly!

    • TheBoxcarHobo

      Sucker punch? If she wants to be president then she has to be ready for the gloves to come off. No punches will be pulled and if she wants to cry sexism we’ll see how far that takes her.
