Barack and Michelle Obama Compared to Sanford and Son?
Wow... when you thought that the “ma newer” couldn’t get any deeper... it goes over your eyes... to the top of your head... and then like a mile above your head.
We are referring to the Long Island Newspaper that published before and after photos of our recent Presidents and First Ladies. But for the current POTUS and FLOTUS, they compared their future to characters in the late sitcom Sanford and Son.
Specifically... Barack Obama as Fred Sanford, and Michelle Obama as Fred’s sister-in-law, Aunt Esther.
According to KTLA TV, critics are calling the illustration “racist,” “disrespectful,” and “despicable” (likely, among other things).
