What did Michelle Obama think about the Presidential election?
She was asked that question by Oprah Winfrey.
And she could only use one word to describe it.
She claimed the election was “painful” to watch.
The Hill reported:
“You know, this past election was challenging for me as a citizen. To watch and experience. It was painful,” Obama told Winfrey.”
Michelle Obama became one of Hillary Clinton’s top attack dogs during the election.
And she launched deeply personal attacks against Trump on the campaign trail.
The Associated Press reported:
“Speaking at a campaign rally in New Hampshire for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Mrs. Obama called the comments “shocking and demeaning.” She also dismissed Trump’s claim that the remarks were simply “locker room talk,” saying they were an affront to every woman, parent and citizen in United States.
“I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken to me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted,” the first lady said. “So while I would love nothing more than pretend that this isn’t happening and come out here and do my normal campaign speech, it would be dishonest and disingenuous to just move onto the next thing like this was all a bad dream. This is not something we can ignore.”
Mrs. Obama said the comments made by Trump are part of a long history of demeaning women.
“We have a candidate for president of the United States who over the course of his lifetime, over the course of this campaign, has said things about women that are shocking, so demeaning,” she said. “I simply will not repeat anything here today. Last week, we actually saw this candidate bragging about sexually assaulting women. I can’t believe I’m saying that, a candidate for president of the United States bragged about sexually assaulting women.”
Electing Hillary Clinton would have cemented her husband’s legacy.
Failed policies such as ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank, and the assault on American energy to combat so-called “man made” global warming would have continued.
Some think that because Michelle Obama threw herself into the campaign with such fervor to defeat Trump that her remarks about the election being “painful” to watch could have meant she realized the American people had just rejected her husband and chose a candidate who promised to rollback Obama’s agenda.
Michelle Obama’s behavior post-election has continued to be rather shocking.
In the same interview with Oprah Winfrey, she claimed this is now what hopelessness feels like.
Trump tried to be gracious in response and said she must have meant something else or maybe she was speaking about the last eight years.
But millions of Americans don’t share Michelle Obama’s belief that the election was “painful” to watch.
They saw it as their last chance to save their country.
