Feb 21, 2014

First Lady Michelle Obama said Thursday that young people need health insurance because they’re “knuckleheads," as she touted Obamacare during her appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

“A lot of young people think they’re invincible,” Obama. “But they truth is young people are knuckleheads. They’re the ones who are cooking for the first time and slice their finger open. They’re dancing on the bar stool.”

Later in the show, the First Lady promoted her healthy living initiative "Let's Move" during sketch in which Fallon and guest Will Ferrell played teen girls.
