Michelle Obama felt like slamming the current President, Donald Trump, by comparing him to a bad parent! According to the former First Lady, Trump is just like one of those negligent fathers who let their children run wild.
While speaking at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston yesterday, Michelle stated: ‘I think that what we see is what happens when taking things for granted.’
Aside from touching upon various important topics during her speech, Michelle Obama threw some epically savage shade at Tump as well.
‘For the eight years Barack was president, it was like having the ‘good parent’ at home. The responsible parent, the one who told you to finish eating your carrots and go to bed on time. And now we have the other parent. We thought it would feel fun, maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day, stay up late, and not follow the rules,’ she said.
But even though her observation seems very accurate, it is safe to say her diss is very tame compared to all of the other things that have been said about him.
According to the Washington Post, for instance, Trump’s administration is ‘in an unethical league of its own.’
And it looks like the country is also ready to have a good parent again considering Donald Trump’s approval rate reached a record low last month – 41 percent!
Michelle also brought up Hillary Clinton saying: ‘The best qualified candidate in the last race was a woman. And she was not perfect, but she was way more perfect than many of the alternatives.’
But would the former First Lady take it upon her to ‘Make America Great Again’ by running for office in 2020?
‘You have to want the job. And you cannot just say, ‘you are a woman, run.’ We just cannot find the women we like and ask them to do it because there’re millions of women who are inclined and do have the passion for politics … Just because I gave a good speech, I am smart and intelligent does not mean I should be the next president … That has been our problem. We are very shortsighted about how we think about selecting the commander-in-chief.’
