Former First Lady Michelle Obama is one of the world’s most recognized and admired women. She is also very rich, thanks to her speaking fees and the brisk sales of Becoming, her recently released memoir.
Her husband was elected President because he received the votes of millions of Americans, including white people. Her book became a best-seller because plenty of her fans, including white people, bought copies. Nevertheless, she seems resentful of white people because they are “still running” from blacks and immigrants who move into their neighborhoods.
Leaving on Christmas night, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump made a surprise visit to American troops serving in Iraq. It was a trip that made a very positive impact on the troops, who warmly greeted the President and Mrs. Trump. Not surprisingly, the visit drew criticism from the liberal media because some of the troops displayed “Make America Great Again” hats and asked the President to sign them. Of course, the same liberal media said nothing when then President Barack Obama signed his picture for our troops.
In her new memoir, “Becoming,” former First Lady Michelle Obama unloaded on President Donald Trump. She said she would “never forgive” him for endangering her family. She blamed the President for his role in promoting the “birther” movement that raised questions about where her husband was born. In the book, she wrote “The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed. But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks. What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk, And for this I’d never forgive him.”
At the Simmons College leadership conference in Boston on Thursday, former first lady Michelle Obama praised her husband’s presidency while taking a veiled swipe at President Trump. She said that her husband’s administration was “like having the good parent at home.” In Michelle Obama’s warped view, her husband filled the national role of a “responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time.”
