According to admissions she made in a recent podcast, Michelle Obama, the former First Lady, claims that she had “uncontrollable crying” after President Donald Trump’s inauguration in 2017.
On January 20, 2017, Mrs. Obama put on a stern public face as she and her husband appeared on the steps of the U.S. Capitol along with the new president as well as Melania Trump, the new First Lady. But she was quietly losing it, just like other Democrats.
CNN stated on Tuesday:
“Michelle Obama frankly admitted in a new podcast that she had a breakdown immediately after leaving the inauguration of then-President Donald Trump because she was feeling both sadness about leaving their family’s home of eight years and wrath over Trump becoming president.”
Obama referred to her final flight on the presidential jet, saying, “When those doors closed, I cried for at least 30 minutes nonstop, uncontrollable weeping, because that is how much we were keeping it together for eight years.”
Adding a racial undertone to her remarks, Mrs. Obama lamented the incoming Trump administration’s “lack of diversity” and expressed shock at how many of them were white:
“There were tears and that feeling. Then to stand there and see the very opposite of what we stood for displayed — there was no variety, no color, and no representation of America as a whole,” said Obama.
Notably, Mrs. Obama laughed and smiled on stage with former Pres. George W. Bush, whom she as well as her husband had vilified throughout their “hope and change” campaign.
“When they are going low, we go high,” Michelle Obama famously said, asserting her moral superiority to Trump.
