Congressman’s wife calls out First Lady for supporting Beyoncé’s racy Super Bowl performance

Not everyone was thought Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime show was the greatest performance of all time.

Rachel Campos-Duffy, wife of Congressman Sean Duffy (R-WI) and mother of six children, was unsettled that Jay-Z’s better half would dress like a “stripper” for the purpose of entertaining 108 million people, including children. What appalled her most, though, was the reaction from first lady Michelle Obama, who sent out a tweet in support of the singer.

The President and first lady have repeatedly said they are strict censors of what their two girls, Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, watch on television. But that censorship apparently doesn’t apply when the performer is an outspoken supporter of the president’s re-election campaign.

“What made me mad wasn’t that Beyoncé is the pop queen and has the right to dance however she likes,” Campos-Duffy told former Governor Mike Huckabee during his radio show Wednesday. “What made me mad was that the First Lady tweeted about it, too.”

Instead of turning off the television, Campos-Duffy decided to turn Beyoncé’s “raunchy” performance into a “teachable moment.”

“That’s not very pretty or empowering,” she told her children after the performance. “Isn’t it so sad that she is wasting all that beauty and talent?”

Campos-Duffy “prayed” that she had “made the right choice,” she wrote on TODAY Moms.

“Interestingly, I noticed all the kids had quizzical expressions on their faces as if to say, ‘What is she doing?’” she wrote.

Campos-Duffy soon tweeted her own opinion of the first lady’s parenting decision:

“Michelle Obama is putting her hat of approval on this, saying, ‘It’s good for your girls. It’s good for my girls’,” Campos-Duffy said. “Whether you’re black, white, or brown, I think gyrating and peep shows are just not appropriate for little girls to be watching.”
Campos-Duffy has garnered criticism, with the popular term “prude” making its way around the Twittersphere, but she believes “moms across the aisle” can agree on not “over-sexualizing” our children.
