Eight years ago Michelle Obama famously told Democrat voters that for the first time in her life she was proud of her country.
“For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”
But this week, after eight years of her husband’s failed policies at home and abroad, Michelle Obama told Oprah that Americans have lost their hope.
Michelle Obama says Americans have lost “hope” after the election of Donald Trump.
The Daily Mail reported:
Michelle Obama fed her husband’s feud with Donald Trump on Friday as she gave a gloomy description of the hopeless climate his election win has created.
The First Lady used her final interview in the White House to tell Oprah Winfrey that a ‘grown up’ should be in charge of the country.
Looking forward to president-elect Trump’s looming inauguration, she said even though hope was lost, it was necessary to move on.
‘Now we’re feeling what not having hope feels like. Hope is necessary,’ she said in her first direct response to the November 9 election result.
Mrs Obama’s remarks come within hours of her husband’s announcement Russian hackers interfered with the election to help his successor.
Actually the polls say Americans have more hope today than they have in years now that Trump has won the White House.
