Michele Bachmann Reacts to Fallon Apology

Republican Presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., said Wednesday in an interview on Fox that she accepts late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon's apology for an incident on his program earlier this week.

It all began on Monday when Fallon's house band, the Roots, chose to play Fishbone's "Lyin' Ass B----" as the Republican presidential candidate's walk-on music.

Bachmann said she wasn't immediately familiar with the song choice, which played as she smiled and waved to the audience, but viewers took notice. The congresswoman was informed of the music's significance on her way to Tuesday night's presidential debate.

In the interview Bachmann also called Fallon "a kick" and said she'd love to go back on his show again.

But she emphasized that the slate isn't wiped clean, calling the lack of apology from NBC "an outrage" and citing bias and sexism.

"If that song had been played for Michelle Obama, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized to her and likely they could have fired the drummer, at least suspended him. None of that happened from NBC," Bachmann said. "This wouldn't be tolerated if this was Michelle Obama. It shouldn't be tolerated if it's a conservative woman either."
