Michele Bachmann lashed out at the offensive song the house band used to introduce her on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon!
"This is clearly a form of bias on the part of the Hollywood entertainment elite, but it's also I think sexism as well!" she said.
The song is called "Lyin' A-- B----," which Roots bandleader Questo chose to play upon Bachmann's entrance on Monday night.
Bachmann told Fox News she didn't realize how she'd been insulted until the day after the show aired.
She said, "If that had been Michelle Obama who had come out on the stage and if that song had been played for Michelle Obama, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized to her and likely they could have fired the drummer, or at least suspended him!"
Not only was the drummer not suspended, Jimmy Fallon even let him plug his new album on Tuesday night!
He said, "It's your man Questo, and I want to give a shout-out to the new Roots album. This is Questlove, and I would never steer you wrong!"
Fallon never mentioned the song controversy on Tuesday night, but he did apologize to Bachmann via tweet:
"I'm honored that @michelebachmann was on our show yesterday and I'm so sorry about the intro mess. I really hope she comes back."
"Of course I accept Jimmy's apology, but this really needs to come from NBC," Bachmann said. "This wouldn't be tolerated if this was Michelle Obama. It shouldn't be tolerated if it's a conservative woman, either."
