Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) had plenty to say about former First Lady Michelle Obama's recent comments about the nation's political problems stemming in part from the GOP being “all men, all white.”

“It's a feeling of color, almost. On one side of the room, it's literally gray and white, literally, that's the color palette on one side of the room,” Mrs. Obama said. “On the other side of the room, there's yellows and blues and whites and greens. Physically, there's a difference in color, in the tone. Because one side, all men, all white. On the other side, some women, some people of color.”

Love appeared on “Fox & Friends” as living proof of Mrs. Obama's bogus narrative.

“I don't know if she noticed, but I am not white and I am not a male,” she said Saturday.

“This is the way that Democrats try to win elections instead of winning on the policies that actually help the American people and unite us,” she continued. “This is absolutely divisive language.”

“I don't fit in a box,” Love said. “I am a wife. I'm a mother. I'm a Utahan. I am a black Republican who cares about America and cares about all people.”

Obama also made disparaging comments a week earlier about women who didn't vote for Hillary Clinton.

“Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice,” she said at a marketing conference with author Roxane Gay.

“What does it mean for us as women that we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, that guy, he's better for me, his voice is more true to me,” Obama added. “Well, to me that just says you don't like your voice. You like the thing you're told to like."

It's unclear if Obama was also implying those women who voted for her husband, former President Barack Obama, over Clinton in the 2012 Democratic primaries were also voting “against their own voice.”

The Utah representative is the embodiment of someone who thinks for herself, instead of merely checking the box for the Democratic Party. No one takes more political flak in American culture than women and minorities who don't follow the Democratic Party's rules.
