I sound like Nancy Kerrigan after her knee was smashed with a wrench, 9-iron, or whatever Tonya Harding had in her trailer — Why?! Why?! Why?! 

You read the headline, so let’s get to the heinous story from Univision.

HuffPo reports that Univision host Rodner Figueroa was fired after a segment on live television where he thought it would be a good idea to compare Michelle Obama’s appearance to that of someone from the cast of the “Planet of the Apes.”

“Well, watch out, you know that Michelle Obama looks like she’s from the cast of ‘Planet of the Apes,’ the movie,” Figueroa, 42, said … giggling.

There are no words.

Figueroa, Univision’s (former) host of entertainment news show “El Gordo Y La Flaca,” was sent out the door almost immediately, to the network’s credit. Hope he enjoyed his career while he had one.
