Former first lady Michelle Obama equated America to a child “from a broken family,” with President Trump playing the role of the “divorced dad.”
“We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled,” Obama, on a book tour in London for her autobiography Becoming, told Stephen Colbert on Sunday.
“Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad,” she said, not mentioning Trump by name, according to the Independent.
She also said America is going through a “dark chapter” with Trump in the White House, but she acknowledged that there has been much worse that has happened.
“This may feel like a dark chapter but any story has its highs and lows but it continues. Yes, we are in a low but we have been lower. We have had tougher times, we have had more to fear. We have lived through slavery, the Holocaust and segregation.
