Fallon Disses Bachmann -- That's No Way to Treat a Lady, NBC

Somebody needs to teach NBC how to treat a lady.

Republican presidential contender Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) received an incredibly rude welcome on Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Night.”As she walked on the stage, Fallon’s house band on the NBC show played a segment from a 1985 Fishbone song called “Lyin’ Ass Bitch.”

Bachmann gave no indication she knew what the song was or its lyrics as she waved to the crowd.

The Associated Press reported that “Roots” bandleader Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson has a history of using obscure song choices as Fallon’s guests are introduced.

Fallon later joked on Twitter that Thompson was grounded.

Bachmann’s campaign did not have an immediate comment to the derogatory nature of the song. It’s too bad that Mr. Bachmann doesn’t deliver his response to the bridge of Fallon’s nose.

So far, neither NBC nor Fallon have issued an apology to Bachmann.

Could you imagine if the network had pulled a similar stunt with First Lady Michelle Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?

NBC is not commenting and Fallon doesn’t appear to have the fortitude to respond. So allow me to fill in the blanks: NBC, you disgust me.

As for Fallon, what’s there to say about a man who earns his living playing make believe? He’s a sniveling, inurbane court jester who degrades women.

I believe it was Katharine Hepburn who once opined that “acting is the perfect idiot’s profession.”

If that’s the case, I’d say Fallon is at the top of his career.

You little man.
