Michelle Obama Compares Trump Presidency to “Living with a Divorced Dad”
Former First Lady Michelle Obama compared life under President Trump to “living with a divorced dad.”
Speaking to television host Stephen Colbert while in London to promote her memoir, Mrs. Obama said, “For anyone who had any problems with Barack Obama, let’s just think about what we were troubled by – there were never any indictments.”
She then said, “We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled. Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad.”
Obama also said America is currently in a “dark” place and there is “trepidation” and “anxiety” in America and all over the world because of Trump’s presidency.
“This may feel like a dark chapter but any story has its highs and lows but it continues. Yes, we are in a low but we have been lower. We have had tougher times, we have had more to fear. We have lived through slavery, the Holocaust and segregation,” she reportedly added. “We have always come out at the other end – better and stronger. We are moving in a direction of diversity and inclusion. No one ever said it would be easy. We are just in the throes of the uneasy path of change.”
