As most of America watched what seemed like the crash and burn of the nation, First Lady Michelle Obama did not to stay awake to see the disastrous results of the accident that is now known as President-elect Donald J. Trump.
During a joint interview with her husband, President Barack Obama, for a cover story on this week’s People Magazine entitled “The Obamas Say Goodbye,” First Lady Michelle Obama tells what she did on the night of the election:
‘I went to bed. I don’t like to watch the political discourse; I never have. I barely did with him’
The First Lady was referring to her husband.
The Obamas were two of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s most powerful representatives during the campaign trail. The first lady gave many speeches about the dangers of a Trump presidency, and even spoke out about the alleged sex offender’s leaked video tape where he can be heard bragging about his ability to sexually assault women, and get away with it, due to his celebrity status. She said that it left her “shaken to her core.”
Michelle Obama also told People Magazine she regrets nothing that was said about President-elect Donald Trump during the election, adding:
‘Anything that I felt about the election I said and I stand by. Once you do what you can do, then the rest is easy. It was in the hands of the American people.’
With class, as always, Michelle Obama says she is prepared to take on the huge task of helping Lord Orange with his transition into the Oval Office:
‘This is our democracy, and this is how it works. We are ready to work with the next administration and make sure they are as successful as they can be. Because that’s what’s best for this country.’
Since the election, there have been talks and hopes of the first lady running for president in 2020. President Obama told Rolling Stone during a recent interview:
‘Michelle will never run for office. she is as talented a person as I know. You can see the incredible resonance she has with the American people. But I joke that she’s too sensible to want to be in politics.’
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will be greatly missed.
