Michelle Obama fanned the flames of controversy during her eight years as First Lady.
She hasn’t stopped now that she is a private citizen.
And what she just said may be her most disgusting comments yet.
Michelle Obama appeared at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th Anniversary celebration.
She used the occasion to take some subtle cheap shots at Donald Trump and once again deny she had any interest in running for President – despite the fact that she traveled to a swing general election state to make these remarks.
But what made the biggest headlines were her remarks on race.
She doubled down on the race card by claiming Americans were against her because she was black.
The Washington Post reports:
“It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme.
“The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color.”
She added that she wouldn’t pretend the attacks didn’t hurt, because that would give those inflicting the pain a pass, according to the Post.
“We are living with small tiny cuts, and we are bleeding every single day. And we’re still getting up,” she said.
For nearly a decade, Obama, the nation’s first black first lady, absorbed direct and subtle barbs about her race.
She’s been called an “atrocity” as first lady who’s not classy enough — or at least not as classy as her white predecessors. A Washington state mayor said she has a gorilla face. Fox News said she was former president Barack Obama’s “baby mama,” as opposed to his wife and the mother of his children.”
This was just the latest – but certainly not the last – incendiary Michelle Obama comment on race.
When did Obama tell the truth about anything? He has been chasing his father’s communist/Muslim image all his life. So now Michelle isn’t proud of our country even after her husband is elected president? Which is it Michele? You are still living the HIGH life on the USA dime or did you get a high slit on OUR money hubby snuck into Iran for his Muslim brothers?
You do know your family CAN LEAVE THIS COUNTRY? Sure Barack’s family would welcome you all in Kenya… HE feel right at home there!!!
Her skin color doesn’t amount to a hill of beans to me. Her disdain for this country is what I resent!! If you show no respect for our country, our flag, and those who serve, how could I ever feel anything for either of you. President Obama apologized to the world, putting us down. The 1st Lady never showed pride or love for this country. I am 83 years old. I have seen many presidents and 1st ladies come and go. I thank GOD every day that these haters are gone!!!
