ABC edits out Michelle Obama mistake, says edit was only because of time

I knew from the moment I saw this story that ABC would claim they made this edit solely for time, and that’s just what they said:

The full story was posted to our website in advance of the interview being broadcast. The edits made to Robin’s interview with the First Lady were made solely for time.

Yeah right. And I’m the next in line to be James Bond.

Here’s the edit, originally caught by the Washington Examiner:

For the broadcast, ABC’s Good Morning America producers edited out the First Lady’s “automatic weapon” line.

She was standing out in a park with her friends in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids grow – grew – up, where our house is. She had just taken a chemistry test. And she was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need. I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.

In the web edition of the story, however, Michelle Obama appears to be quoted in full:

“She was standing out in a park with her friends in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids…grew up, where our house is. She had just taken a chemistry test. And she was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need,” she said. “I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.”

The mistake, as you can see, was that Michelle Obama erroneously said that the girl was killed with automatic weapons. The police believe it was with semi-automatic handguns. But hey, liberals probably don’t know the difference anyway.

    I hate those bangs! You know most women don’t make cosmetic changes to look older but Michelle Obama made a huge blunder adding bangs.

    • nibblesyble

      The bangs, the stupid remarks, the thrusting herself out in the limelight whenever she possibly can(Oscars!) I rather miss Laura Bush…understated and classy…take some notes Moochelle!

      • MadAsHellJack

        Nibblesyble, nicely said!

        • nibblesyble

          ; )

      • GWShrub

        Laura Bush was a totally classy first lady, indeed.

        • She is classy, but she too has participated in the Oscars ceremony

      • Laura Bush = Pure Class!
        MooMoo the hairbangs = Horses a$$!!

        • nibblesyble

          Lol..true dat!

        • Dukehoopsfan

          She’s a modern day “mooorie antionette”.

          • “Let them eat Peas!” 🙂

      • Sober_Thinking

        Spot on!

    • americalsgt

      It’s her Anna Wintour Devil Wears Prada look.

    • Probably designed to take away attention from the David Copperfield level of illusion effect make-up on her face. They darkened her jawline up so much that it looks like a 5 o’clock shadow…..the hair softens that effect.

      • nibblesyble

        lol…thanks for the laugh(or many in this case!) Stewie!

      • OneThinDime

        Hair makes her look more like a gorilla, maybe she should do something about that facial hair.

        • Give her a break. I hear she already shaves TWICE a day using FauxProud Pro. “For that Hairy beast that likes to pretend to be proud of her country” And still manages to make a Sasquatch look bald! Is that too mean? I’m not proud of this comment, but at least I don’t pretend to be. 🙂

    • OneThinDime

      This is who she is trying to look like, Trisha Goddard, who has a new TV show.

      • KittyAmerica

        Yikes! Black women don’t age well.

        • marketcomp

          Yuck! She’s ooogly!

        • c4pfan


        • Like hell we don’t! And if you stayed out of the sun, you might age better too

    • tshtsh

      She just needs longer bangs–not quite Cousin It but close.

      • marketcomp

        Yeah, to cover that awesomly beautiful face! Oops, just kidding;)!

  • MadAsHellJack

    The end of the Obamas reign cannot come soon enough! Arrgggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    • nibblesyble

      Bloody right!

  • She looks like a Ewok with that silly hair dew.

    • I know you feel strongly, but please don’t go insulting the Ewoks! 😉

      • Aworldinchaos

        The Ewoks fought for good. No racism, but she is on the dark side, just watch Star Wars its there for all to see

        • 🙂

          Just for the record I hated the stupid Ewoks. Still do.

          • Aworldinchaos

            Not as bad as Hobbits even though they saved the world

            • Agreed! 🙂

              Now, where did I put that darn ring again? 😉

  • Aworldinchaos

    Hey TRS we need a clip to make sure you could play 007. The media doesnt lie

  • maynardb50

    Where can I buy me some of these automatic weapons they keep talking about?

  • What Libtards don’t know could fill the vacuum of space! When you ask them about their ignorant stupidity they waffle on and on but when translated means “Don’t know, Don’t care!” It’s not about facts… Facts are those pesky things best papered over… It’s all about how they **feel!** you see! Like good sheep, they sit and wait to be told what and how to “think.” Darn useless Sheeple!

  • 1217Chic

    Ape drape is everywhere……can’t get rid of her, she’s even on the food network web site so no more recipes from there.

    • I’ve seen her on Jeopardy more than once in recent months as well!

  • sqdog99

    What gives her the right to decide which kids “need” and “don’t need” automatic weapons. If you are a thug and you’re going to war with the Four Corner Hustlers …you do needs you some automatic weapons.

    • Just like you Deliverance Hilljacks need ’em to hunt you some possum

  • Rocco11

    We live in extremely corrupt times….

  • Goebbels would be amazed at the level of propaganda in the LSM today.

    • Jay

      And proud that his legacy lives on.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Another cover up… can’t let the Obama’s poop smell can we now?

    “some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need”

    Sounds like total malarky to me.

  • c4pfan

    Yeah, to her all GUNS are automatic weapons!

  • Army_Pilot1967

    That is not a good photo of ol’ what’s her name, but I don’t think she’s ever had a good photo taken; the camera records what it sees. Sorry, but that’s the way I see it.

  • PAWatcher

    LSM doesn’t know the meaning of integrity when it comes to the obama regime.

  • They do this quit often,edit stuff, Fram at AP pulled that Saturday,on a gun story. I cut and pasted a sentence. went to town came back two hours later the sentence in his story I had cut was changed.made comparison the tabloid reporter had changed it.

  • louisiana_mom

    Of course the “Ministry of Truth” sent her statement down the “memory hole.” Anything that makes Big Brother look bad is always sent down the memory hole… The only ones who will ever know about it are us who are paying attention. The brain dead low information voters don’t want to have to think much less put forth any effort to discover the truth about anything this regime does.

  • z b

    Nothing new. The media has always been biased.

  • stage9

    Um, how does editing out ONE line save time?

    • tinlizzieowner

      I could go into the details of that. For instance when time is allotted for a 30 second ‘sound bite’ that doesn’t mean a 32 second sound bite but that’s not what is going on here, it’s just the excuse for Michelle Obama’s ignorance, the left is so willing to mask.

    Well, one would expect the Amerikan Barak Channel to protect the First Wookie.

  • repubboy

    Just goes to show you that the MSM will project the party line to the point of lying to the public they are supposed to serve.

  • guppymanster

    Michelle is a disgusting creature and a lying partner to her husband; peas in a pod.
    We quit listening to the news media after 2008 except for Rush and Hannity. If obama comes on the radio or TV (and he does almost daily) we mute it immediately. He’s incapable of governing; he doesn’t want to or he doesn’t know how. He thinks governing is running from manufactured crisis to crisis as if only the government is capable of providing solutions. His entire approach towards everything is based upon emotion and deception. Logic or rational thinking is not part of obama’s mentality. The slavish news media are his complicitly disgusting lapdogs.
    Nazi Germany’s Joseph Gobbles once said, “The truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state.”
    Bob Woodward said he has not seen the type of madness exhibited by obama in some time and I find this to be very thought provoking.

    • I turn off the T.V. cause I already know what Preezy is going to say. He’s a disgrace. 2016 can’t come soon enough.
