Michele Bachmann Outdoes Herself, Says Hurricane Irene Is A Warning From God!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikSad SadMichele Bachmann

michele bachmann on hurricane irene

SOOOOOO inappropriate!

Yesterday, Michele Bachmann had the following to say when speaking in Florida about Hurricane Irene and last week's earthquake on the East Coast:

"I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?'"

"Listen to the American people, because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending."

Basically, it seems like she's saying that God is punishing us because the U.S. government is "too large and intrudes too much on people's lives."

When asked to comment, Michele's spokeswoman Alice Stewart said that her comments were "in jest."

Whether or not she was joking, we think it's incredibly tasteless for Michele Bachmann to use natural disasters, which have resulted in loss of human life, in an effort to further her own cause.

She continues to reach new levels of disgusting.

    I bet if she had said that the natural disasters were a warning from God about how we need to give gays rights, then you'd be all for her.
    Not saying she is right with this random comment, but you just need to keep your site celeb news.
    Trust me, anyone who is on here is here for celebs, we all go to REAL news sites for REAL news.

    She is a nut…a religous nut….I want more women in politics….just not this woman (or Palin)…Hilary is cool…but until society in general can handle strong women, this is they type of idiot we will get….Men have created war and debt…come on smart ladies, where are you when we need you….??



  3. 3

    She isn't very bright. She should NOT be allowed to run for anything….her husband runs a clince to de-gay people for that reason alone NOBODY should listen to anything this bitch says. FUCK YOU MICHELE BACHMANN!!!!!



  4. 4

    Your agenda is even worse than her's. At least she will come out and say what she is trying to accomplish…Stay out of the political arena please… You are losing creditibility everytime you do this.



  5. 5

    can we send this b*tch out to the field and shoot her like old yeller? she is so useless it's disgusting.



  6. 6

    She's a fucking right wing fringe lunatic who hates America. Anyone who supports her hates America.



  7. 7

    i don't agree with her comments to an extent. I do believe natural disasters are a sign from god that the world is not living as they should.



  8. 8

    The Global Elite control the weather with HAARP, and have for some time.

    Re: this is it – I second that. Kll her!



  10. 10

    Maybe these earthquakes and hurricane's are God's waying of saying STFU to her and her friends? Did you ever notice that the majority of damage, etc is to the red states? Hmmm…makes you wonder.



  11. 11

    Maybe it was a sign from God that we need to make sure this WACKJOB doesn't get elected to anymore government offices!! All anyone in the U.S. needs to do is hold her and Palin up against Hillary who is a real politician.



  12. 12

    Wow. Just wow. I have no words.



  13. 13

    Can this woman get any more insane????
    And America is considering electing this person to the White House?
    Are you NUTS????



  14. 14

    wtf? Yes, most definitely. I totally think God wants to have natural disasters because God thinks people need to be killed in order to understand! THAT'S SO STUPID! I don't believe that at all. Look, nature had this crazy moment! I look at it like God is there to pick up the pieces after the fact.

    However, I so hope "God sends her a sign" to leave the race and move to a far island.



  15. 15

    Perez…you use any disaster to further your own cause. You are such a hypocrite.



  16. 16

    She's an America-hating cun*t.

  17. Blunt says – reply to this


    17

    ROFL, for the love of everything alive, why the hell is this woman saying this now??? But then again what i want to know is she really this ignorant or is she playing dumb for attention? Because i refuse to believe this woman is this stupid, i mean the bible said NO ONE CAN PREDICT WHEN GOD IS COMING!!!!! Looks like someone needs to frehen up on her bible studies and up her lithium dosage



  18. 18

    Really? why does she have to be a b___?



  19. 19

    Scarry what a stupid moron. How did she become a tax lawer. The standars must be soooo low for a lawer in the US. Palin has proven any moron can get elected in the US. Just scarry



  20. 20

    HEY OBAMA THE TWIT said there 57 STATES in the U.S.



  21. 21

    I hope she wins the nomination… because there is NO WAY she would win.

    Re: johnsmith11 – I like this content a lot - I have to disagree with you



  23. 23

    Re: sanfran1

    Well said I agree 100% This is why we must elect more and more women in lesser offices as so they can gain expertise. Look at the Iron lady in the UK supper strong clear headed thinker and a great leader and a great wife and mother.



  24. 24

    Re: truthgal – Forgive me but isn't that what she is doing ? He is just exposing what she did



  25. 25

    This crazy bitch is NUTTS. She makes the worst comments and it's almost dangerous. She does NOT think before she speaks. UGGG PLEASE GO AWAY. YOU make Sarah Palin look like Einstein.



  26. 26

    the us government does intrude on to many ppl lives and they kill innocent ppl everyday but god doesnt exist so probably not a warning cant believe the us ppl are so happy they killed second in command for al qudea or whatever so weird when ppl are happy when they kill someone



  27. 27

    You're such an idiot, Perez. What's so frightening is that some people believe what you post and fail to question your accuracy and your motives. Your rabid fear of her is actually hilarious; it's too bad she can't do a Freddy Kruger and reach you through your nightmares. Now THAT would be EPIC.



  28. 28

    Again Perez, you fail to fact check. If you actually WATCH and LISTEN to the statement it is rather obvious and hard to miss that she is clearly cracking a joke and quite honestly, so what? Attack her for her policy ideas…not a silly little joke. It is refreshing to see Bachmann flex her humor muscle for ounce. Do not discourage her.



  29. 29

    Re: johnsmith11 – credibility? What do you think this site is?!? Go back to c-span.

  30. d.f. says – reply to this

    Re: XraySpex – her comments were strange but i would vote for her before BLOBAMA! HELL I WOULD FOR VOTE FOR DAFFY DUCK BEFORE THE POOR EXCUSE FOR A PRESIDENT WE HAVE NOW.



  31. 31

    Re: bookworm333 – But natural disasters have been happening on this planet even before mankind was here, so how does that even make sense?



  32. 32

    So we're ignoring Glenn Beck's "Irene is a blessing" statements?



  33. 33

    Re: GaGaGoAwayAway – She was cracking a joke?! um… people have lost lives due to this I don't think its time to be cracking inappropriate "jokes". And aren't jokes suppose to be funny, what is funny about what she said



  34. 34

    God is not the cause of all the bad things that happen on this earth. Satan is. Hence the word 'evil' in Devil.



  35. 35

    Re: La Garse
    Oh come on La Farce, it is what she actually said. What he should fear is whacko bitches like you. We have missed you, where have you been? Gagging on your own bile?



  36. 36

    smh.



  37. 37

    I'm not a fan of her religious views, but if you heard the audio clip, it's obvious that she's joking.



  38. 38

    There is no god. MORON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  39. 39

    You'd think that if God existed and actually wanted to send a message, he'd be able to do so in a manner that isn't ambiguous. When the Thumpers take something that's been happening since people existed and state that it's a message from God…well…that kind of stupidity was what started leading me away from religion in the first place.



  40. 40

    I don't like her, but you are taking this comment out of context. It was a joke.



  41. 41

    she's absolutely right. She should run for president



  42. 42

    Why aren't you going after any male republican candidates eh Mario? Everyone knows the real reason you are attacking this chick just like Sarah Palin 4 years ago is that you hate women. I hope she does win and maybe she can do something about all of the gays like you running around ruining America.



  43. 43

    So God allowed a 20 year old girl in New Jersey to drown in her car because he wanted to send a message to politicians? Bachmann is just a hateful and stupid woman, unqualified to comment on the weather or anything else. I don't know which would be scarier - that she was serious or that she was joking.



  44. 44

    does she realize that this type of weather has been going on for millions of years? this broad is every bit as stupid as sarah palin. "god" help us if an idiot like her runs the country.



  45. 45

    Too bad Irene didn't swoop down and rip this usless/anti-American motherfucker's head off.

  46. @v@ says – reply to this

    Maintaining a proper separation of church and state is imperative for good government.
    Fundamentalists can be worrisome because you never know if they might cross over into Jim Jones territory. Self determination is crucial in proper governing. Credit whomever you want for positive actions, but in your own down time.



  47. 47

    It's alarming to read these comments, which demonstrate how closed minded and full of hate the American left has become.



  48. 48

    That which Michele does not comprehend, she attributes to "the mighty hand of the Lord" … which explains why, in Bachmann's world, God is intervening in just about everything.

    Next time, perhaps Michele will opt to "phone a friend" before stating one of her irrational observations.

    Spin-doctors are once again working overtime trying to cover Bachmann's ass, now insisting that she was only kidding … as though that is a more satisfying explanation.

    Bachmann to the families whose homes and businesses were destroyed and/or suffered the loss of loved ones who died due to the hurricane:
    "Can't you take a joke!"



  49. 49

    Well many religions believe that god will punish people by an increased amount of natural disasters.

    Sorry Perez, you need to be open here.



  50. 50

    someone please kill her in jest.



  51. 51

    Re: the1 u luv 2 h8! – Regardless if you think my comments are ridiculous they are mine and I am entitled to that. Go on hating:)



  52. 52

    She crazy…and her hubby's a barbarian.



  53. 53

    Re: bookworm333 – Is it really hating when you're simply choosing to be ignorant?
