There’s been some rather strange backlash to Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley making fun of the Obamacare rollout on the Country Music Awards, and by strange, I mean accusations of racism because, somehow, making fun of Obamacare is racist. The whole controversy is so stupid, Megyn Kelly and her panel Thursday night basically pointed and laughed at the utter ridiculousness at work here.
Here’s a selection of some of the angry tweets, collected by Twitchy:
Ellison Barber found this particularly hilarious because no one was attacking Obama, “they were mocking an inanimate object.” Kelly showed clips of late night comics mocking Obamacare to make the point clearer.
Richard Fowler agreed this is just a stupid controversy, and noted even President Obama‘s admitted the rollout has been less than ideal.
Kelly, meanwhile, was just cracking up, jokingly telling her two guests, “If you guys think it’s funny, then you are racist too!”
