A high school coach in Alabama who was caught on tapeÂ Â ranting against Michelle Obamaâ€™s effort to promote low-calorie school lunches â€“ claiming that the size of her posterior gives her no right to do so â€“ has been suspended without pay for 10 days for his comments.
â€œFat butt Michelle Obama,â€ saidÂ Bob Grisham, the head football coach of Lauderdale County High School in Rogersville,Â in remarks that were secretly recorded by one of his students. â€œLook at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. Sheâ€™s overweight.â€
Grisham, who was suspended Monday and ordered to take sensitivity training, is neither the first nor the most high-profile person to feel moved to comment on the first ladyâ€™s physique. Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has repeatedly called her Michelle â€œMy Buttâ€ Obama. And Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner, the Wisconsin Republican, issued an apology after he was caught commenting on her â€œlarge posterior.â€ (Grisham has also said he misspoke.)
