Michelle Obama, wife of former divider-in-chief Barack Obama, appeared on The Ellen Show on Wednesday.
It was her first television interview since she departed the White House.
During her exchange with Ellen, the former First Lady revealed her true feelings about Trump by telling America the only thing we have left after a year of Trump in office is “hope.”
But it gets worse.
She then went on to tell Americans to “forget what they’re saying in Washington.”
Check this out…
From The Hill:
Michelle Obama has a message for Americans who are frightened by the current political climate: remain hopeful.
“All we have is hope,” the former first lady says in a preview clip from Thursday’s “Ellen” show. Obama’s sit-down with host Ellen DeGeneres marks her first TV interview since leaving the White House last year.
“People are afraid, but then there are people who feel good about the direction of the country, so I mean, that’s what makes this country complicated because it’s made up of so many different people from different backgrounds,” Obama tells DeGeneres, when asked what advice she’d give people who find the world to be a “scary place right now.”
And here’s more…
“You can’t do that only when people make you feel good or safe. We’ve to do it all across the board. We have to be an openhearted nation, and that’s who we are, and that’s the truth of who we are. We can’t lose sight of that. And let’s just keep living our lives like that every single day and forget what they are saying in Washington. That’s not necessarily who we are,” she said.
Remain hopeful that we’ll get back to the days of Obama? Where unemployment was high, radical Islam ran amok, and more and more people were signing up for food stamps?
Democrats like Michelle are too far gone to see straight. They’re ignorant to the facts. That’s the bottom line.
We all remember how Michelle got off on an awkward foot when she said that she wasn’t proud of her country until her husband showed up on the scene.
Not her best moment.
On top of that, we all remember her crusade to bankrupt as many school districts as possible by forcing them to give kids gross food that they didn’t want.
Whatever, that’s all behind us now.
Michelle was back in the news this week after she sat down with Ellen Degeneres for a hard-hitting interview about her favorite color and how terrible Trump is which is always can’t miss television. However, to her credit, Ellen did manage to sneak one fairly interesting question into the interview.
Ellen asked what the deal was on inauguration day when Melania Trump showed up with a gift and Michelle Obama acted like she was being handed a basket full of human skulls.
Here’s the clip if you missed it.
From USA Today:
“There’s all this protocol,” she adds. “This is like a state visit, so they tell you that you’re going to do this, they’re going to stand here.
“Never before do you get this gift, so I’m sort of like, ‘OK, what am I supposed to do with this gift?'” Obama says, narrating as a clip of the exchange playing on a large screen behind her.
“Everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box, and I’m thinking, ‘Do we take the picture with (it)?’ And then my husband saved the day — see he grabbed the box and took it back inside. But everybody cleared out — no staff, no one. I was like, ‘What do you do with the box?'”
And what was inside the box that created all of the commotion? Obama told DeGeneres: “It was a lovely frame.”
A decent explanation.
However, a lot of people on the internet realized a big problem with what she said about “protocol”.
From The Daily Caller:
Poor Michelle. Imagine receiving a gift you weren’t prepared to get and not having anybody to immediately take it off your hands. The horror. Thank goodness the Obamas didn’t have to spend another year in the White House. I can’t imagine how they would handle all those filthy gifts catching them off guard.
What’s untrue, however, is saying this has never happened before. Many people on social media pointed out a similar gift exchange happened in 2009 during Obama’s inauguration, when Michelle gave former first lady Laura Bush a present and the entire media swooned.
“Oh, she’s brought a gift! Aw, she’s such a gracious lady,” one NBC cohost exclaims. “I bet it’s not Tupperware,” Matt Lauer chimes in.
Not sure about that Michelle.
A lot of conservatives are probably going to stick with the belief that you really don’t like Melania and weren’t thrilled about handing over the keys to the White House to the Trumps.
Stupid is as stupid does.
