  • WATCH: Michelle Obama Says Young Adults Are ‘Knuckleheads’ and Should Sign Up for Obamacare

    First Lady Michelle Obama called young people “knuckleheads” last night in an appearance on The Tonight Show.

    The First Lady was promoting Obamacare for 20-somethings, who Obama described as at risk from cutting themselves cooking or injuring themselves while dancing. The discussion on Obamacare starts at 1:58 in the video.

    Host Jimmy Fallon told Obama that a lot of people “don’t have money to spend on [Obamacare.]”

    She then pointed out that insurance is available for as little as “$50 a month — less than the cost of gym shoes.”

    Obama failed to mention that some individuals have seen their health insurance costs skyrocket since Obamacare went into effect. Some are paying more than $500 a month and seeing price increases in the hundreds of dollars.

    After the interview segment, Obama participated in a skit with Fallon and Will Ferrell to promote her “Let’s Move” campaign, which is gearing up this week.
