Michele Bachmann unwittingly humiliated by Jimmy Fallon walk-on music

Pin it

Michele Bachmann stumbled into yet another opportunity for public embarrassment last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon when Fallon's show band The Roots chose Fishbone's song "Lyin' Ass Bitch" as her walk-on music.  

Given how chipper she seemed, it's a safe bet Bachmann didn't recognize the 1985 song, but drummer Questlove had tweeted ahead of time, "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." 

Bachmann's camp hasn't commented, but Fallon later tweeted "@Questlove is grounded." Questlove has since said in a statement:

"The performance was a tongue-in-cheek and spur of the moment decision. The show was not aware of it and I feel bad if her feelings were hurt. That was not my intention."

Watch the above clip to see the whole thing go down, and keep your fingers crossed that NBC doesn't to reprimand The Roots for the, uh, unconventional song choice.
