On Friday evening, former First Lady Michelle Obama made an appearance on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” in order to promote her new book, “Becoming.” Her new book is currently on the bestseller list, however Americans are taking notice of the way she slammed President Donald Trump’s morals. This could lead to backlash against Mrs. Obama and her book.
Michelle went on to complain that she had to be “perfect” during her time as First Lady. She spoke about how relieved she was when her family was leaving the White House.
The Daily Caller reports:
“We knew that we were the moral compass. So we had to speak carefully and clearly and intelligently and we couldn’t just say things off the cuff,” Obama stated.
Colbert followed up by asking, “As people who took that moral position seriously, and it is a serious position, how does it feel to see the next occupant, at least of the Oval Office—I can’t speak to anyone else’s in his family—who seems indifferent to that responsibility?”
Mrs. Obama answered, “The question that we have to ask ourselves is how does the country feel about it? Because I don’t think it matters how I felt about it. I’ve felt torn about it from the day I watched it happen. But now the country has to ask itself, what do we want? What is the bar that we’re setting for ourselves? It’s up to the voters now to figure out what kind of moral leadership do we demand in the White House, regardless of party, regardless of race, regardless of gender, regardless of wherever you are. What do we want our president to look like?”
“How do we want them to act? And if we vote for one set of behavior, then that’s obviously what we want until we vote differently,” Michelle Obama finished off.
If we’re going to go there, we can list a few times that the Obama White House failed when it comes to “morals.”
Diamond and Silk pose some important questions:
Which President was it who lied to Americans that they could “keep the plan” and “keep their doctor,” destroying health insurance, plans and the connections people had with their doctors in one fell swoop? Was the Obama architect kidding when he basically confessed that Americans were deliberately kept in the dark because otherwise they never would have gone for it? Was that “just saying things off the cuff?”
Which President said he couldn’t constitutionally do DACA for illegal aliens brought here as children but then did it anyway?
What President didn’t tell the truth to the American people about Benghazi claiming Americans were killed because of an internet video?
This woman wants to call herself and her husband a “moral compass” during their time in the White House, but in all honesty, they had plenty of flaws and moral shortcomings. Why can’t the Obamas just leave Trump alone and let him do his job?
