Rush Limbaugh: Michelle Obama Guilty Of 'Uppity-ism' (AUDIO)

Rush Limbaugh accused Michelle Obama of "uppity-ism" during his Monday show.

Limbaugh was speaking about the First Lady's recent reception at a NASCAR event, where both she and Jill Biden were booed by the crowd. He said it was not surprising that she was booed, because the crowd at NASCAR resented her healthy eating initiatives and her husband's policies.

"What the hell is there to cheer for?" Limbaugh asked. He said that people also didn't like "paying millions of dollars" for Obama's vacations. "They understand it's a little bit of a waste," he said. "They understand it's a little bit of uppity-ism."

Michelle Obama has been a frequent target of Limbaugh's. Previously, he has said she "doesn't look like" she eats healthy foods, and criticized a trip she took to Target.
