Michelle Obama has done quite a bit of whining lately.
In fact, since starting her new podcast, Mrs. Obama has gone out of her way to cry to anyone listening about how much of a victim she and her husband were during their 8 years in the White House.
She’s complained about not getting enough attention as first lady.
She’s blamed Presient Donald Trump for her own depression.
Now she claims that her and her husband “never could’ve gotten away with some of the stuff that’s going on now” in reference to the Trump White House.
Just what could the Obamas have gotten away with in their time in the White House?
The New York Post has more on Mrs. Obama's comments:
Former first lady Michelle Obama took a dig at President Trump and his administration, saying she and former President Barack Obama “never could’ve gotten away” with what the current White House occupants do.
The former first lady made the remarks while having a discussion about race and the expectations placed on black Americans in the latest episode of her Spotify podcast, released Wednesday.
The episode was focused on parenting, families and race and featured Obama’s mother, Marian Robinson, and her brother, Craig Robinson.
Race was prevalent throughout their discussion, during which Obama explained how “almost everybody” she knows has had “some kind of incident where they were just minding their own business but living black, and got accused of something.”
Obama continued by saying that from a young age, black children are taught that they have to exceed expectations in order to be viewed as though they are enough.
Obama used her privilege shield here.
She made an inflammatory comment and then sandwiched it within a discussion of her own 'victimhood' as to avoid any criticism.
The problem is, the truth doesn't worry about being "woke."
Fox News has more from the Obama podcast:
Michelle Obama added that many people she knows have had “some kind of incident where they were just minding their own business but living Black, and got accused of something.”
She added that many Black families teach their children “you’ve got to be better than, you’ve got to be 10 times better than” others, because of prejudice and mistreatment they will likely face in life.
The former first lady added that such experiences among Blacks help explain the unrest that has erupted across the nation since the May 25 death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis.
“The fact that there are people out there that treat us less than, when we’re working so hard to be better than, that’s where the pain comes from,” Obama said. “That’s what these young people are so angry about.”
Earlier this week, some conservatives called on Barack and Michelle Obama to use their connections with the streaming service Netflix to combat the controversial film “Cuties,” which critics say sexualizes and exploits young girls.
The Obamas in 2019 signed a deal said to be worth $50 million to produce content for Netflix, which has been streaming “Cuties.”
Maybe Michelle should stop whining, and instead use her vast privilege (which she denies having) for something good.
Before she speaks on somebody else 'getting away' with anything, maybe she should acknowledge what her husband got away with.
