Michelle Obama will never get used to the idea that her time in the White House is over. She was there for eight years, and most Americans regretted for giving Obama a chance to win his second term.
It’s obvious that the former first lady hates the idea of being ‘former.’ Michelle spoke to a group of high school seniors at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The students were there for a star-studded College Signing Day event. Michelle was there, too, and she was accompanied by Robert De Niro, Rebel Wilson, Bradley Cooper, Karlie Kloss, Ciara, Janelle Monae and Zendaya.
The event was organized for the students, but Michelle forgot that for a second, and spoke of herself. Well, we are used to that.
“The only reason I am standing here today is because I was where you were way back when. I was a kid who grew up on the south side of Chicago. I went to public schools my entire life, and when I decided that I wanted to go to college and I applied — Do you know what one of my college counselors told me? She told me don’t set my sights too high. Yeah, she told me that some of the schools that I was trying to apply to, maybe they were too hard for me,” the former first lady said.
“Shoot, when Barack and I set foot in the White House, it was a struggle. There were a lot of people who told us that we weren’t supposed to be in the White House. That we couldn’t handle the pressure, that we weren’t ready. So I’m telling you, they will doubt you today and they will doubt you for the rest of your life, but you will have some struggle and that’s okay. I’m not one of those doubters. I know you have everything it takes to succeed. I know you are me, and if I can be standing here as your forever first lady, then you can do anything you put your mind to,” Michelle said.
Forever first lady? Really, Michelle?
Actor James Woods was not buying any of that. “With all due respect, you aren’t our ‘forever First Lady.’ No one is, nor should anyone be. Pump your brakes a tad,” the actor tweeted.
Americans agreed with Woods. Michelle crosses the red line every time she makes a public appearance.
