(Newser) – Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck have both weighed in on the Michele Bachman-Jimmy Fallon incident, coming down firmly on the side of Bachmann. “She’s right, if that had been Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton” who was introduced with a derogatory song, “NBC would have fired the entire production staff,” said Limbaugh, who accused the Fallon crew of “still joking about” the incident rather than offering serious apologies. Limbaugh’s analogy on yesterday’s show: “Imagine, here comes Michelle Obama and they play ‘I Like Big Butts’ by Sir Mix-a-Lot.” He then went on to do just that—listen in the gallery.

Glenn Beck, on Tuesday, called the incident “so unbelievable” and told his staff that if they did the same thing to Michelle Obama, “I fire you. She’s a guest in my home. She’s a guest on my show.” He went on to call Fallon’s staff “two-faced liars” and Fallon himself a “despicable, reprehensible human being” and "a girl."
