Michelle Obama Complains, Says She Is “not emotionally able…” To Deal With Life Under Trump Presidency

on

Former first lady Michelle Obama has been making the rounds promoting her new book, “Becoming,” during which time she has not held back her opinion of President Donald Trump.

Obama told late-night host Stephen Colbert that living under Trump was somewhat like living with a “divorced dad,” The Independent reported.

“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 told Colbert in London promoting her book.

“We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled,” Obama said. “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.”

Additionally, Obama told her interviewer that she struggles to even watch the news, and can’t partake too much for the sake of her emotions.

“When I am not emotionally able to deal with it I turn it off for a moment,” she told Colbert. “I only let some of that stuff into my world when I’m ready. You can’t have a steady diet of fear and frustration coming in.”

Despite her frustration with the current administration, Obama said that her faith in America is strong and that she believes that the U.S. has overcome worse, and will do it again.

“We have always come out at the other end – better and stronger. We are moving in a direction of diversity and inclusion,” she said. “No one ever said it would be easy.

We are just in the throes of the uneasy path of change.”

The former first lady also bragged that her husband was favored for a third term by those who forgot that the nation’s first president who identified as black, was elected twice.

“That really did happen,” Obama said, referring to having to remind people that her husband was elected twice.

“People would have voted for him for a third time. What is going on today is true but what happened before was also true. That should give us some solace at some level.

For eight years, the president they saw in their country was Barack Obama. He was somebody who people thought was smart and would do the right thing.”

"not emotionally able to deal with life" is how most of the country felt while her husband was president. And the statement that he was elected "twice" will always be in doubt. There was so much organized voter fraud in 2012 we will never know who truly won that election.

Boy does she live in fantasy land.from having a husband making 174grand a yeaR to president making $400,00per year for8years.$3.2million to being worth over $140 million.He should have been a wall street wizard. Remember what President Harry Truman said, the only people who get rich in politics are the thieves.

And Moocher-elle that is the exact same way that so many people feel about seeing/hearing the Obama's every single day of our lives. We all know that you are NOT EMOTIONAL ABLE FOR ANYTHING WORTHWILE. If you think your comments on everything and anything amounts to anything but a pile of s--t. You and Barry need to get lost and stay out of the citizens lives.

I think she might be watching the wrong news channel or maybe it is that Melania doesn't need her help taking care of the WH where she had 24 staff members and now it only requires 4. In your 8 years in the WH you say you didn't have any indictments but that is because you were protected by all of the other crooks in the administration and the Democratic press!

Good to know. That is an excellent indicator that she cannot stand the rigors of serving as the President herself.

Obama didn't do much when he was president, about the only thing was he or someone in his cabinet tracked down Binloden the master mind of the 2011 disaster, when the twintowers were destroyed by suicide pilots.

I suggest if you are emotionally unable to cope under President Trump that you leave America. You don't like us. Many president have had a second terms. Obumer is not the only one and he ruin us. So NO to a third term.

IS MICHAEL SERIOUS????? OBUMMER WAS THE WORST PRESIDENT WE EVER HAD...HE HAD NO RIGHT SERVING A SECOND TERM...IT WAS ENOUGH TIME FOR HIM TO TOTALLY RUIN OUR WONDERFUL AMERICA. WE HAVE NO TIME FOR THESE PEOPLE...THEY ALL LIE AND WANT TO RUIN OUR COUNTRY. WE MUST PRAY THAT THEY GO AWAY PERMANENTLY!!! GO TO ANOTHER COUNTRY AND WRITE THEIR BOOKS OF LIES. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH OF THESE OBUMMERS AND OTHERS LIKE THEM, I.E., CLINTONS, ETC.

You're right, Moochelle. America HAS dealt with worse...a LOT worse. Most obvious: 8 years of you and your wimpy husband in the Oval Office. Get over it, witch!

What a moron. She can steal millions from the American people and steal a million dollar mansion in Hawaii but "complains she Is “not emotionally able…” To Deal With Life Under Trump Presidency" I have only this to say to this ungrateful racist malcontent..."THEN MOVE YOUR A** to your homo husband's beloved country and birthplace Kenya"

Obama's husband's eight years were the worst period ever foisted on the American public. Whether you mention our lowest status and respect of other nations, the horrible economy, his devastating health plan, Obamacare, his terrible position on abortion, his crooked deal with Iran, his anti business actions, his horrible unemployment record, his criminal involvement in the fake Russia-Trump conspiracy, his anti police attitude and so much more, Michelle Obama complains about life under the Trump administration, the most successful pro American administration in over 80 years? You and your husband left the White House with millions of dollars, the most in presidential history. You don't like it under Trump, then leave!

Gee, if that's the case, why don't the Obama's purchase a $15 Million Dollar mansion in some other country besides this one! I guarantee they won't be missed if they do! I also guarantee that fewer Federal elections will be determined by massive voter fraud if "community organizer" Obama is out-of-country rather than teaming up with "Contempt of Congress/Fast & Furious" Eric Holder to "assist elections" of Democrats in 2020! election!

I feel sorry for Michelle Obama she seems to have forgotten the mess her husband created for this country. I think the Obama's are self serving. They can't accept the fact that someone has done a better job and he does it for free. He wasn't paid like Obama was. Michelle get a grip on reality, your days of being Prom King and Queen are over.

Why don't you and Barry get a life? No one wants you, or him, involved in "our" government. His fiasco of a presidency/vacations are over. Get a life and move to Kenya. Where he belongs!
