First lady Michelle Obama called on young “knuckleheads” to sign up for healthcare — saying they are not invincible.
Appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Obama said young people have the perception they are invincible, but “life happens.”
“And a lot of young people think they are invincible but the truth is young people are knuckleheads,” she said. “They are the ones who are cooking for the first time and slicing their finger open. They are dancing on the bar stool.”
She was quick to point out the federal healthcare exchange website is functioning better than it was in the early days of the rollout last year.
“It’s working!” she said, adding that young people could get healthcare for “less than the cost of gym shoes.”
Obama made her appearance on the show to promote her “Let’s Move” campaign, appearing in a sketch along side Fallon and Will Farrell, who both portrayed female characters.

This is so typical Obama- there is no room for disagreement. If you don’t agree with them, you’re an idiot. She can easily afford a $12,000 gown so everyone should be able to afford Obamacare, right?
for some reason both she and her husband remind me of ‘white trash’ – and yes that is the term that comes to mind. They are the epitome of moochers; living large, sucking off others and not paying for a thing.
Simply calling the opposite side in a debate names is NOT a winning tactic.
If that’s all the Obama’s have ….. they lose.
@Nanny G: Please as if I haven’t heard any disparate words from your side. I usually don’t however enough is enough for me with those two – and I do not really have to justify my words to anyone however, It is MY money they are spending, it is MY children’s future they are playing with and it is MY children’s families futures and freedoms too.
Imagine what the media headlines would have been if Laura Bush (or any other conservative woman) had called young people knuckleheads for not doing something the president wanted them to do….
Just no shame in the media for their rabid leftwing bias.
Well the liberals have proven what conservatives continue to point out – when loosing the argument – go on the personal attack ….
….you will obey… OBEY.. OBEY.. OBEY!!! (obey??) Seriously??? Is this what this presidency has come down to??
…..now the president and the first lady thinks y’all are a bunch of, of knuckleheads!!! – because of course, you don’t WANT and WON’T buy (into) OBAMA CARE (the ACA for the other knuckleheads)
Queen Moochelle called the millenials “knuckle heads” because she, and her community organizer husband, feel that anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their awesomeness is just plain stupid.
Plus, Obama doesn’t need their votes anymore.
He’s done and set for life.
Now, if that doesn’t constitute getting ”mugged by reality,” I wonder what it will take for these ”millenials.”
She was, obviously, speaking to the liberal demographic. Only a knucklehead would vote for the people that enacted this law in the first place.
Yes! The millennial(s) and many ‘others’ are unquestionably Barry Barack Obama and Moochelles ‘Useful Idiots’ ….OBEY!
I am quite sure she would have liked to use ‘stronger language’ to describe them too…
