Most former First Ladies have enough class to retreat from the spotlight and not speak out to bash their successors. Unfortunately, Michelle Obama has no class, and she’s using her first televised interview since leaving the White House to bash Melania Trump.
On Inauguration Day last year, Melania graciously brought a gift for Michelle when she arrived at the White House. Instead of simply accepting the generous gift, Michelle embarrassed Melania by purposely making faces so that the moment would be incredibly awkward, ruining the new first lady’s special day.
Newsweek reported that during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres this week, Michelle made this even worse by blaming Melania for the awkward moment. Michelle claimed that Melania violated protocol by bringing the gift, acting as if she was such a seasoned First Lady that she could not even handle figuring out what to do with the present.
“There’s all this protocol,” Michelle explained. “This is like a state visit. They tell you you’re gonna do this, you’re going to stand here. Never before do you get this gift, so I’m sort of like, ‘OK, what am I supposed to do with this gift?’”
Of course, Michelle then made Barack Obama out to be the hero of the situation.
“Everyone cleared out, and no one would come and take the box. I’m thinking, do we take the picture with [it]? Then my husband saved the day. He grabbed the box and took it back inside,” she continued.
Give me a break, Michelle!
This isn’t the first time Michelle has taken shots at the Trumps. During a recent speech, Michelle slammed “partisan” critics of her 2010 “Let’s Move!” program to combat childhood obesity, which included regulations on school lunch programs.
It was a clear and direct jab at President Donald Trump.
“So we have a lot more work to do for sure but we got to make sure we don’t let anybody take us back,” Michelle whined. “Because the question is where are we going back to? I mean this is where you really have to look at motives. You have to stop and think, why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school?”
“What is wrong with you? And why is that a partisan issue? Why would that be political? What is going on?” she added. “Now that is up to moms. I’m talking to moms, think about this, take me out of the equation, like me, don’t like me, but think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap? Why would you celebrate that? Why would you sit idly and be okay with that?”
