Michelle Obama Reveals She is Suffering from ‘Low-Grade Depression,’ Partly Blames President Trump

Michelle Obama partially blames President Donald Trump for her "low-grade depression."


Michelle Obama is back in front of the victim parade.

The former First lady proclaimed on her new podcast that she is suffering from “low-grade depression.”

She also claimed that part of the reason for her depression is none other than President Donald Trump.

Looks like we’ve got ourselves another case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

This sickness is spreading faster than the coronavirus.

Now this is not meant to make light of Mrs. Obama’s depression, but if she and the media are going to start blaming President Trump for her personal problems, we cannot give credence to those accusations.

The Washington Examiner has more:

Former first lady Michelle Obama said she is feeling the weight of 2020.

Obama said in a Wednesday episode of The Michelle Obama Podcast that she finds herself “waking up in the middle of the night because I’m worrying about something or there's a heaviness.”

Obama described several reasons why she is feeling unease. She highlighted quarantines during the coronavirus pandemic, racial strife, and the actions of President Trump’s administration.

“These are not, they are not fulfilling times, spiritually,” the former first lady said. “I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression."

“Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting,” Obama said.

“I have to say that waking up to the news, waking up to how this administration has or has not responded, waking up to yet another story of a black man or a black person somehow being dehumanized or hurt or killed or falsely accused of something, it is exhausting. And it has led to a weight that I haven't felt in my life in a while,” she added.

Despite Mr. Obama's depression, she and her husband still have time to sit smugly atop their ivory tower and shame the rest of the country.

Mrs. Obama's new podcast seems like a well-timed opportunity for her to complain about the state of the country.

The Obamas still have a strong contingent of the American people firmly under their spell.

They are the perfect catalysts for the left to stir up more political controversy and racially-based outrage.

With most media companies firmly on their side, it's also hard to escape the reach of their divisive voices.

CNN has more on the former First Lady's struggles (propaganda).

In her podcast, Obama also discussed the racial reckoning in America following the death of George Floyd this summer. She explained it is "exhausting" to be "waking up to yet another story of a Black man or a Black person somehow being dehumanized, or hurt, or killed, or falsely accused of something."

She also discussed her frustration with people who refuse to wear masks. "There's almost like there's a limit to our sacrifice and it was about a month and then we just got tired of the virus," she said. "That's been disheartening to see so many people who have grown tired of staying at home because the virus didn't impact them."

Obama emphasized that while "we've been through tough times in this nation" before, "we are in a unique moment in history... We are living through something that no one in our lifetimes has lived through."

Since leaving the White House, Obama has pursued multiple projects, including publishing a bestselling memoir and releasing a documentary film series on Netfix. Her Spotify podcast is her latest creative venture, focusing on "meaningful relationships and conversations."

Her first guest was her husband, Barack, and upcoming voices will include her mother and brother, late-night host Conan O'Brien, and top Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Let's all pray Michelle gets through this rough time in her otherwise privileged life.  

Hopefully everything works its way out over the next few months.
