realize that certain people just don't care about context, and that they're fine with being ignorant. The FLOTUS made a speech that any sane and rational person could agree with, but RW pundits like O'Reilly intentionally misinterpreted and twisted it as something it isn't. They do this with everything, especially with racially-related topics, and their fans eat it up like there's no tomorrow.
