Michele Bachmann Demands Apology from NBC for ‘Late Night’ Song Choice

GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann wants an apology from NBC over what she calls  “a form of bias on the part of the Hollywood entertainment elite.”

Bachmann appeared on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” Monday night, and as she was being introduced the drummer on the show played the song ”Lyin’ Ass Bitch.” Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson says it was a spur of the moment decision and meant no harm. Fallon has apologized and will talk with Bachmann today. But this morning on Fox News, Bachmann went one further and demanded an apology from the network that airs Fallon, NBC.

“This wouldn’t be tolerated if this was Michelle Obama,” Bachmann told Bill Hemmer. “It shouldn’t be tolerated if it’s a conservative woman either.”
