Former First Lady Michelle Obama, 54, gave her real opinion on what she thinks of President Donald Trump and his presidency and well, she’s claiming her hubby was the better “parent” for the United States.
During the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston on Thursday Obama said to the organization’s president, Helen Drinan, “I think what we see is what happens when we take things for granted. 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 eat your carrots and go to bed on time.”
She continued, “And now we have the other parent. We thought it’d feel fun, maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day and stay up late, and not follow the rules.”
“I think it’s gonna take young people, the next generation of leaders, to determine what they want to be,” Obama added. “Voting has to be part of that equation.”
“When it comes to her reactions to see what Trump has been up to since he took office, Obama said she takes ‘a deep sigh,'” reports People.
“I think about what I’ve learned from my husband, and I’ve learned watching him be a leader,” she said. “And a lot of what I’ve learned about temperament and patience that really comes from him. I think he was born with that DNA.”
She goes on to say, “What I learned is that as he said, the arc of history is long, and what we’re here to do is make a mark. And you do what you do because you know it’s the right thing to do, not because you’ll get credit for it, or because it says something about your personal legacy. You do the work because you’re slowly moving the needle. There are times in history when we feel like you’re going backward, but that’s part of the growth.”
Although she has learned a lot from her husband, Michelle doesn’t plan on pulling a “Hillary” and running for president. “I don’t want to be president, I don’t think I should be president. I think I can do a lot of things, but that’s not one of them,” she said to the audience. “And we have to find women who understand their gifts and know where to put them to use. I know what I’m good at.” And all of America shouted with elation!
