Michelle Obama Booed At NASCAR Race

Well, after all it’s NASCAR, which has never been a bastion of liberal pride…

The Huffington Post

Michelle Obama and Jill Biden were booed at NASCAR’s season finale at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday.

The appearance was part of an initiative to honor military troops and families. The first lady and vice president’s wife also served as grand marshals for the big race.

At the beginning of the race, an announcer introduced the two women, who were met with a loud combination of both cheers and boos.

This is hardly the first time the first and second lady have been booed at a sporting event. Their appearance at World Series games in both 2009 and2011 were met with a less-than-warm welcome.
