Appearing on the Jimmy Fallon Show Michelle laughed in delight at Melania’s gift on Inauguration Day.
She also took a swipe at Melania during the conversation.
Piers Morgan blasted Michelle in his column on Wednesday.
Via the Daily Mail:
Appearing on last night’s Jimmy Fallon show, Michelle inexplicably decided to plunge the bitchy knife firmly into the back of her successor as First Lady, Melania Trump.
The attack came after Fallon showed her a photo of her and husband Barack boarding Air Force One for the last time after Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.
‘Can you just walk me through…,’ said Fallon.
But before he could even finish the question, Michelle interrupted with a sneering: ‘Bye Felicia!’
Fallon collapsed with laughter and the audience whooped with joy.
And wherever she was, Melania Trump must have winced with anger and humiliation.
The phrase ‘Bye Felicia’ is an intensely derogatory one.
It was first coined by rapper Ice Cube’s character Craig in the 1995 cult stoner comedy movie, Friday.
A local girl named Felicia who annoys the neighbourhood with her constant begging, and shameless attempts to live off others, annoys Craig.
When she asks if she can borrow his car, and a marijuana joint, he point blank refuses, then looks away and says simply ‘Bye, Felicia’ in a dismissive tone.
The phrase is now widely used, especially on social media, as an ice cold ‘kiss off’ for unpleasant people who you want to avoid.
It means, depending on which dictionary you refer to, a variant on: ‘I’m done with you, I have no interest in you, or anything you have to say.’
It’s specifically designed to cause hurt to the recipient.
