Roots Welcome Michele Bachmann to Fallon Show by Playing ‘Lyin’ Ass Bitch’ (Video)

Fallon tweets that Questlove is grounded

Jimmy Fallon jokingly tweeted Tuesday that his bandleader "is grounded" after house band The Roots welcomed Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann to the "Late Night" stage Monday with a song called "Lyin' Ass Bitch."

The 1985 Fishbone tune was the latest obscure number that drummer and bandleader Questlove has used to introduce guests.

Questlove, whose Twitter profile picture shows him standing with President Obama, later tweeted a link to the Fishbone EP that contains the song. We're going to go ahead and assume he didn't get an all-clear from the president.
