Michelle Obama and Jill Biden were booed at final race of the NASCAR season to honor Joining Forces, a group that helps military families. And many have taken to twitter and the internet generally to condemn or applaud the booing which occurred at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday.
They were standing along Sgt. Andrew Barry, a military sniper who was wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, was there with his wife and four children.
kwameshine : No class. What a shame
kenpecus : Wow, no matter how bad George W was, i never remember Laura Bush ever receiving a rude reception. So Sad
claudiamiles : I understand why NASCAR fans booed Michelle Obama. Her big issue is childhood obesity...They must think she’s insulting their offspring.
NolteNC John Nolte :Sending Michelle Obama to a NASCAR event? Takes a pretty lousy husband to set your wife up for humiliation.
@billhobbs : Difference between Michelle Obama & #NASCAR crowd that booed her? Crowd full of ppl who’ve always bn proud of their country.
I guess the folks paid their money to go to the event so they can boo if they want to, even if it seems a little classless, considering that Obama and Biden were there to support America’s troops.
What do you think?
