Washington: Tracy Morgan, comedian and star of ‘30 Rock’, has raised eyebrows for his most recent over-sexed remarks about US First Lady Michelle Obama.

During an interview on ‘Lopez Tonight’, Morgan recalled becoming aroused after meeting Michelle during a recent White House correspondents` dinner.

"I looked at Michelle and she said, ``Hi Tracy`` and I just like, I got hard," Pop eater quoted him as saying on the show.

Morgan, who went on to call the president’s wife "a beast," expounded on his physical attraction to the first lady, telling Lopez that she was exactly his type.

"Michelle looked like a tall mountain and I wanted to climb it just cause it’s there -- just cause it’s there, like Kilimanjaro," he added.

Morgan previously drew criticism after describing former Alaskan governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin as "good masturbation material".

He also described her as "the hottest MILF in the world" during a red carpet interview at the Screen Actors Guild awards.
