Last week, Michelle Obama called young people “knuckleheads” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in an attempt to promote Obamacare. Here is the First Lady’s patronizing comments to all those young people, twenty-six years-old and under, in America:
How out of touch can The First Lady be with the real world? It’s condescending and frankly it’s a false narrative. Millennials are depicted by this administration as lazy, immature, and in need of government-subsidized health insurance. Just another lame, liberal-minded example of why more of us need the government to take care of us.
Then there is this story—Twenty-three year-old, Olympic gold medalist David Wise who is a husband and father of a two-year old. Wise won the first-ever Olympic medal for the freestyle skiing half-pipe in Sochi. NBC called his lifestyle “alternative” and remarked that because he is a responsible husband and father “at such a young age, Wise has the lifestyle of an adult”. Um, duh? David Wise at twenty-three is an adult and for a man to be married and have a child and hold a job is actually not abnormal. What is abnormal is a liberal-biased media along with an out-of-touch administration depicting young men and women between the ages of 18 and 26 as “knuckleheads”.
The fact is that those “knuckleheads” are the ones that are supposed to be paying into Obamacare to make it “affordable” but they are not and opting-out because of the hefty price tag being put upon them to distribute the wealth that they don’t have. Which proves what this Generation Xer has known all along: that America’s young adults are smarter and more mature than the Washington D.C. elites give them credit for.
