The Roots are sneaky, and also kind of hilarious.
Controversial GOP candidate and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann stopped by “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” on Monday Night to discuss her candidacy and her new book, “Core of Conviction: My Story.”
The Roots, Fallon’s house band, made their feelings about Bachmann painfully clear as she walked on stage… but only to music aficionados familiar with the stylin’s of Fishbone. As she entered, The Roots struck up the song “Lyin’ A** B****”
You’re smart. You can fill in those asterisks.
Of course, Bachmann was none the wiser, but Spin Magazine pointed out that it wasn’t the first time The Roots made a sly comment without saying anything at all. When Ashlee Simpson was on the show, they played Milli Vanilli’s “Girl You Know It’s True” — which, of course, is the song that got them busted for their elaborate lip-syncing hoax. When Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt arrived, they were serenaded by Beck’s “Loser.” They didn’t notice, either.
What do you think, Zappers? Hilarious or inappropriate?
