First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, were booed this past weekend at a NASCAR racing event in Miami.
The event, held at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, had both women serving as Grand Marshals this past Sunday.
According to Mediaite, when the first lady was introduced, “loud booing could be heard above the cheers.” The booing was not audible in the television broadcast, but was picked up by ESPN microphones.
The First Lady and Mrs. Biden were at the event in support of Joining Forces, the initiative the women lead in support of military families. In fact, NBC Miami reported that a group of military families, including an Iraq war veteran, Sgt. Andrew Barry, and a group of children of military families were with Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden when they were booed.
