Rush Limbaugh: Media Giving Michelle Obama Vacation Pass Because Of 'Slave Past'


First Posted: 08/06/10 08:02 PM ET Updated: 05/25/11 06:15 PM ET

Rush Limbaugh said Friday that the media is allowing Michelle Obama to take a vacation as a form of reparations for "our slave past."

In discussing the lack of media outrage over the First Lady's trip to Spain — which isn't exactly true, as documented here — Limbaugh said that it stems from her race.

"As far as the media's concerned, Mrs. Obama deserves this," he said. "Look at the sordid past. Look at our slave past, look at the discriminatory past. It's only fair that people of color get their taste of the wealth of America too."

Limbaugh compared the First Lady's vacation to Nancy Reagan changing the china in the White House.
