A Colorado doctor-professor went on a Facebook rant that proves angry white people shouldn’t be allowed on social media.
Michelle Herren is a pediatric anesthesiologist who works at Denver Health Medical Center, Children’s Hospital Colorado and is listed online as an assistant professor at CU’s School of Medicine.
Herren also is a racist, but of course she says she’s not.
Herren posted a photo of the first lady and captioned it:
“Doesn’t seem to be speaking too eloquently here, thank god we can’t hear her! Harvard??? That’s a place for “entitled” folks said all the liberals!” Herren continues, “Monkey face and poor ebonic English!!! There! I feel better and am still not racist!!! Just calling it like it is!”
The post was caught by Joann Nieto and Herren said it was taken out of context and insists she didn’t realize the term “monkey face” was racist. Herren said she was responding to another post pointing out people say whatever they want about Melania Trump, but if they do the same about Michelle Obama they’re considered racist.
Ohh..so Herren is a Trump supporter. Got it. Makes all the sense in the world.
The Denver Health System issued a statement about the post:
Denver Health’s mission is to provide high quality health care to all, regardless of income levels, ethnicity, gender or social background. Our staff and our patient population are reflective of the diverse Denver Community we serve. We don’t condone nor do we agree with the statements Dr. Herren made, as they are inconsistent with Denver Health’s mission and values. However, we cannot control the opinions our staff choose to express as private individuals.
Just imagine what she says about her black patients.
