Will someone tell Michelle Obama that she is not the first lady of our country? The Obamas have hard time coping with the fact that they left the White House long ago. Remember how Michelle said she is our “forever first lady?” Well, actor James Woods was not buying any of her nonsense. The actor humiliated the former first lady, and let’s just say that she sort of deserved that.
Michelle spoke to a group of high school seniors on May 2, 2018, at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The kids came to addend the star-studded College Signing Day. Michelle was there, too, and she was also accompanied by Robert De Niro, Rebel Wilson, Bradley Cooper, Karlie Kloss, Ciara, Janelle Monae and Zendaya.
“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,” Michelle told the crowd.
“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,” the former first lady added.
“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.”
James Woods got really angry, and decided to blast Michelle for her ignorant comment.
“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.
Is this enough for Michelle?
