Former First Lady Michelle Obama kept her and her husband’s streak of classless attacks against their successors alive last Saturday. Recalling the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration as “very emotional” during an interview at the Essence Festival in New Orleans, Mrs. Obama didn’t hesitate to mention that part of the reason for her emotionality was that the crowd on the National Mall was “not reflective of the country.”
It’s a bit strange peddling the “America is racist” argument when many people in that crowd unconditionally accepted Barack Obama as their president prior to that for eight years.
Still, the woman who was never proud of her country until her black husband was elected, painted the entire inauguration crowd in 2017 with a broad brush and complained that she had to sit there in that supposedly non-diverse crowd.
Meeting These Peasants
“I had to sit in that audience, one of a handful of people of color, and then listen to that speech,” she lamented to CBS News’s Gayle King. “By the time I got on that plane, it was [a] release of eight years of having to try to show up, as we all know we have to do, not only perfectly but a little bit better than perfect to even be considered equal.”
She spent eight years in the White House with her husband. And she is still complaining that they’re not considered equal.
“And then we had to meet the Trumps,” she continued. Oh, the humanity!
It’s Always About Race With Her
This isn’t the first time Mrs. Obama has admitted to being very emotional after seeing Trump take on the role of President. She previously claimed to have “sobbed for 30 minutes.” Nor was the only emotion she experienced one of sadness. She also glibly recalls having thought the words “Bye, Felicia!” as she and Barack boarded Air Force One for the last time. Yep, that’s perfection for you.
Jimmy Fallon: This is after the Trump inauguration … you waving from Air Force One. Can you just walk me through…
Michelle Obama: Bye, Felicia!

Previously, the former first lady claimed the hardest part about her eight years in the White House wasn’t trying to be perfect but having to deal with all those racist Americans. After “working really hard for this country,” there would still be people “who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color,” Obama claimed.
It must be an awful thing to be so unaware of your own limitations that you believe the only possible reason someone could dislike you is the color your skin. In fact, that entire mindset seems … well, racist.
