(Newser) – Apparently apologies from Questlove and Jimmy Fallon weren’t enough for Michele Bachmann. Reflecting on her Late Night introduction song incident—which she called “an outrage”—Bachmann insisted to Fox's America’s Newsroom that, while she accepts Fallon’s apology, she wants one from NBC as well. “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,” she said. “This wouldn’t be tolerated if this was Michelle Obama, it shouldn’t be tolerated if it’s a conservative woman either.” See the clip from Mediaite.
