It was really only a matter of time before Michelle Obama arrived back on the American radar, and, even after her brief hiatus from the spotlight, the former First Lady is still as misguided as ever.
The nation as a whole is soaring. Consumer confidence is at levels that Barack Obama could never dream of, with enormous corporations re-engaging themselves with the American workforce is ways that many of us never imagined. Those outsourced jobs have been coming home, and with them, unemployment is drastically decreasing – particularly among African Americans.
To put an exclamation point on this revelation, President Donald Trump delivered a blistering State of The Union address on Tuesday night, highlighting not only the current predicament of prosperity, but very tangibly asking the democrats to join him in winning. Of course, their pathetic response has already been well documented by a number of sources, including eyewitness accounts of bizarre anger and frustration occurring within the halls of Congress itself during the speech.
Now, however, Michell Obama has taken an opportunity to appear on Ellen Degeneres’ television program to demonstrate her own belief in the booming economy and rising stars of the new administration.
Just kidding. Michelle simply used her time to bash the President and rehash one of her husband’s former catchphrases.
“Michelle Obama has a message for Americans who are frightened by the current political climate: remain hopeful.
“‘All we have is hope,’ the former first lady says in a preview clip from Thursday’s ‘Ellen’ show. Obama’s sit-down with host Ellen DeGeneres marks her first TV interview since leaving the White House last year.
“‘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,’ Obama tells DeGeneres, when asked what advice she’d give people who find the world to be a ‘scary place right now.’
“‘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,’ says Obama. ‘That’s what it means to lead with hope and not fear.'”
