After first lady Michelle Obama jokingly referred to young people as "knuckleheads" on the "Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon on Friday, one boy decided to respond.

Tanya Bachand, a mom who identified herself on Twitter as a Connecticut conservative and Tea Party supporter, tweeted out a photo of her son holding a sign in response.

Dear #FLOTUS, I am not a knucklehead. I can read and I understand the Constitution," the message read. "#LetsMove on to shrinking the government so I can secure my own future."


Since Friday the message has received more than 1,000 retweets.
