With the midterms fast approaching, those who had been part of the mess are energetically crawling out of the woodwork. Not like they haven’t been firing on all cylinders since Trump got elected with the inherently undemocratic ‘Not My President,’ ‘#Resist,’ and several other movements. But now, all bets are off, and there’s only doom and gloom in the horizon, even though President Trump and the GOP just can’t stop winning.
The newest face in the blue noise is Michelle Obama. She was on the Ellen Show recently, her first public appearance on TV since 2016, and with the core of her base tuning in, she pushed an interesting angle of push the ‘libs are the saviors’ narrative. Things are looking bad and “all we have is hope.”
It started with an Ellen question where Mrs. Obama was implored to offer advice to those who perceive the world to be a “scary place right now.” She couldn’t have asked for a better lay up as she frantically tried to shore up support for the DNC-led resistance against Trump and the GOP.
In her words, “People are afraid, but then there are people who feel good about the direction of the country. So I mean, that’s what makes this country complicated, because it’s made up of so many different people from different backgrounds.”
In continuation, she said, “The thing I learned in the eight years that I was in the White House is that what we do every day in our lives, the good things that we do every day – and we know we do it: we show empathy, we care for each other, you know, we do have a lot in common. That’s what it means to lead with hope and not fear.”
Sure enough, America is diverse and we should all go about our daily lives as humanely as possible; but typically that flies in the face of reason for many a Dem who are pathologically averse to contrarian opinion. Which is perhaps what makes her following statement comical:
“I would just encourage your viewers, the country, to do the things we do every day: to love each other, to take care of each other, to show empathy. And you can’t do that only when people make you feel good or safe. We have to be an openhearted nation, and that’s who we are. So, let’s just keep living our lives like that every single day and forget what they’re saying in Washington. That’s not necessarily who we are. We know who we are.”
The country is supposed to “love each other,” “take care of each other,” “show empathy,” and “be an openhearted nation”; but “forget what they’re saying in Washington” because they think things should be done differently. Well, that doesn’t sound right, does it?
