Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey issued a statement this afternoon condemning late night comedian Jimmy Fallon for introducing Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann on his show by playing the song “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” as the walk-on music.
Lowey described the music as “insulting and inappropriate.”
“I do not share Michele Bachmann’s politics, but she deserves to be treated with respect.,” Lowey said. “No female politician – and no woman – should be subjected to sexist and offensive innuendo like she was last night. The Roots, Jimmy Fallon, and NBC should apologize.”
