After the clip, Kimmel imitated the first lady's accent.

Earhardt wondered where the "outrage" was over Kimmel's impersonation.

"Imagine if we moved to another country and we had to learn that language. It would be daunting," she said.

"And then for her to become the first lady. She not only speaks five languages, she's reading different languages, too. I mean, that's not easy to do ... Shouldn't she be praised? Shouldn't we be supporting her for all of her hard work and learning?"
