The Roots diss Michele Bachmann with 'Lyin' Ass Bitch' as she walks on Jimmy Fallon

Categories: Holy Shit!, Media

Anyone who follows Roots drummer and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon staple Questlove on Twitter knows that he puts a lot of thought into the walk-on music the band plays for each of the guests on their show. One of the Roots' finest zingers to date was playing the Milli Vanilli song "Girl You Know It's True" when infamous lip syncher Ashlee Simpson came on the show -- complete with a skip on the main chorus to accentuate the part of the song that revealed that Milli Vanilli did not, in fact, sing their own music. 

But last night's entrance music just might take the cake.

True to form, Questlove couldn't keep the joke to himself, so he took to Twitter last night to reveal that they had a trick up their sleeves:


aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title.

When Michele Bachmann strode out on stage, Questo and the Roots started playing the introduction to Fishbone's "Lyin' Ass Bitch," which starts with an innocent refrain of "La la la la la." Bachmann, it appeared, had no idea she was being dissed.

As soon as news of this folly broke on mainstream media, NBC pulled the video that showed Bachmann's intro off of its site. But we were able to find this short clip of the intro music on YouTube. Watch it quick before it gets taken down:



Here's a clip of the song in question for reference:



NBC still has two clips of Bachmann's appearance up on their site now (though they pulled the video for last night's full episode, which included the walk-on moment). In the first clip she talks about meeting with Donald Trump, her Thanksgiving traditions, and her new book -- which was the main reason she was invited on the show, for those wondering how this even transpired. 



The second video is a quick-paced word association game she played with Fallon. Listen for the boos when he prompts her with "Obama" and she replies "Finished."

Ah, The Roots. Philly's shame and a beacon in the dark for knuckle-dragging libtards everywhere. I guess this passes for 'edgy' on Fallon's borefest. Switch over to CBS and watch Ferguson doing something actually entertaining (and apolitical).

It's strange that some people seem to be more upset at the behavior of the performers on a comedy talk show as opposed to the performers on a so-called news channel like FoxNews. The fact that at times she has been been ignorant, a liar and/or an idiot is indisputable.

Thankfully Fallon had the class to apologize for this. Guarantee if you saw someone do this to a dem they'd be taken behind the woodshed and shot.

You know, I despise everything she says and stands for. But I also despise misogyny, and calling a woman a "bitch" is just that. Not to mention classless and disrespectful.

Bachmann has to somehow explain how she can be against government spending, while using her power as member of Congress to get $260,000 in federal dairy and corn subsidies for her family farm. Apparently assistance and government subsidies are okay for Bachmann to get, but not those Americans who are elderly, poor, disabled, or unemployed Seems Bachman's husband doesn't have a problem with collecting money from insurance companies and medicare to "wish away" homosexuality. Hypocrites!! Does she reject her Senate paycheck or her Foster Care Subsidy checks More than the specific funding requests, it is Bachmann's private acknowledgement that the EPA can facilitate positive outcomes for both the environment and the economy that stands out for conservative activists. On her campaign website, after all, Bachmann refers to the EPA as the "Job Killing Agency."While Bachmann clearly petitioned the federal government for help in multiple venues, she was incredibly unsuccessful in her efforts. Minnesota's sixth congressional district received more than $234 million in stimulus contracts, grants and loans, according to the Obama administration's Recovery  .gov website. That may seem like a hefty bundle, but it ranks last among the state's eight congressional districts.Parents who wish to enroll their children in any public school in Minnesota, including Vandyke, must prove that their children have had several immunizations. These include immunizations against rubella, tetanus, polio, influenza, diphtheria, pertussis, mumps and hepatitis B. why isn't Bachmann railing about that? Bachmann On Libya: It’s Important Because Of The “Oil Revenues First she was against Obama's involvement , now that she sees what everyone else did she's all for it(Obama 'Put Us In Libya. He Is Now Putting Us In Africa) 

The fact that Michele Bachmann's bid for the presidency has even the remotest chance of succeeding should be seen as a divine warning to the American electorate­:

In order to lie, one needs to be aware of the truth. To this day, I'm not 100% certain that she is or was ever.

That the HPV vaccine can cause mental retardation, that Obama spent $200 million a day travelling to Asia last year, that carbon dioxide isn't bad for us, that she fairly won the Iowa straw (by literally purchasing votes and giving incentives to people to vote for her), that the Affordable Care act had over $100 billion in hidden funds, that she would bring gasoline down to $2 a gallon if made president, and that she supports small government and states rights (while pushing for national laws on abortion, teaching creationsim in public schools, and seeking to overturn individual state laws legalizing gay marriage) There's much more.

Or was that just a facetious question?

The contention that homosexuality is a disease that can be "healed" is a big fat LIE.

Every word that comes out of that hater's mouth is a lie, including "and" and "the."  We've known about shelly's lack of character for many, many years here in Minnesota.  Iowa can have her.

That's why it's funny, moron, he did only the intro to that song so she would be oblivious. He doesn't actually say the words 'lyin' ass bitch' during the intro, that would have been too obvious to her.

He figures that people can piece it together from the intro alone, however there are a significant number of people like yourself that aren't that bright.

Because he doesn't say it, you idiot, he plays a song with that title. READ.

You would have to have intimate knowledge of the woman to make such a statement.

at over $65,000 per hour for AF 1 and all security and imeneties as well as the extra people taken with him 200 mill is a fair guess, can you or bammy prove the vaccine does not have the side effects? (didn't think so), the 100 billion is there. $2.00 per gallon is easily reachable. just stop blocking production and end the hyper green regs, How is small government effected by national laws on abortion? wouldn't state government be larger by state having to deal with the issue? how is teaching creationism going to grow the government? How are uniform laws on marriage going to grow the government? Where did she say CO is not bad for us? Isn't true your just a f---ing democrat and fear strong conservatives?

The irony is that the moron who decided to play the song probably couldn't tell you a single thing that he thinks she lied about, and likely couldn't even articulate what she stands for, other than that she's right wing and he doesn't like that. Is there a song with lyrics about stupid, left wing morons in the media?

I think your mother is a lyin ass bitch how funny is that? i didn't say it to her?

the heading to the story was misleading, they still could have posted the content.

Preaching small federal government & then supporting federal laws to overturn state laws when you don't like the state laws is a huge hypocrisy. The republican stance on small govrn't is to shrink federal govrn't and allow the states to make there own choices. Unless they don't like the state choices.
