Pity poor former FLOTUS Michelle Obama. Apparently quarantine has left her with a form of “low-grade depression” because she has become dispirited by the coronavirus, racial strife and the hypocrisy of the Trump administration.
We feel for her having to suffer being holed-up in a $15m Martha’s Vineyard mansion.
We think she can solve for the racial strife anxiety by simply rolling over and speaking to her husband, perhaps one of, if not the most racially divisive president in US history.
Our favorite example was his speech to the Black Caucus ahead of the 2016 election which we wrote about in Sept 2016,
“I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election.”
Or when Barack Obama encouraged in a speech to military personnel at MacDill Air Force Base to commit acts of mutiny if so required after Trump won the election by saying,
“each of us has…the universal right to speak your minds and to protest against authority; to live in a society that’s open and free; that can criticize our president without retribution.”
Or the many land mines he left for incoming President Trump before he sat in the Oval Office. Abstaining from a UN vote with respect to Israel, expelling Russian diplomats and even signing a refugee swap agreement with then Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull.
Or maybe she could smile a bit more were it not for the huge list of scandals under her husband’s own administration?
Black conservative Larry Elder put a wonderful montage as to the hypocrisy of Obama when it comes to race.
