Hateful Twitter nutters use Nancy Reagan’s death to bash First Lady Michelle Obama
With the advent of Twitter, the death of any controversial figure immediately leads to both condolences and insults directed at the dearly departed, and the passing of former First Lady Nancy Reagan was certainly no exception.
While there are more than a few rude comments directed at the wife of former President Ronald Reagan, her death also prompted some conservatives to lash out out at current First Lady Michelle Obama.
Fox Business Network correspondent Charles Gasparino went a step further, blasting President Barack Obama for not immediately issuing a statement on the former first lady, writing, “fitting: no comment yet from @POTUS on nancy reagan’s death because he’s on a golf trip.”
Michelle Obama, however, was the main focus on a day for some when most Americans — both conservative and liberal — paid condolences to the Reagan family.
A sampling below:
Nancy Reagan fought drug use and AIDS; Michelle Obama makes bad school lunches every kid wants to leave behind.

EASY prediction: NEITHER Barack nor Michelle Obama will attend the funeral of Nancy Reagan.

It tells you something when low class Michelle Obama doesn’t listen to Nancy Reagan’s advice on being First Lady.
