In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, outgoing First lady, Michelle Obama, talked about her views on President-elect Trump, and how the White House needs a “grown up”.
Mrs. Obama shared her thoughts with the talk show host saying that the nation will come to appreciate the current sitting president, Barack Obama.
While never mentioning him by name, Mrs. Obama criticized Donald Trump and his upcoming presidency.
“Now we’re feeling what not having hope feels like,” she says. “You know? Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept. And Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was just a nice slogan to get votes. I mean, he and I and so many believe that if you … what else do you have if you don’t have hope?”
“What do you give your kids if you can’t give them hope?” she added.
The Obamas campaigned aggressively for Hillary Clinton and argued that the New York businessman is unfit to be president.
Comparing him to a person who doesn’t freak out when a child bumps their head, Mrs. Obama discussed how the public will eventually appreciate what a comforting person her husband was during the past eight years.
“I feel that Barack has been that for the nation in ways that people will come to appreciate,” she said. “Having a grown-up in the White House who can say to you in times of crisis and turmoil, ‘Hey, it’s gonna be OK. Let’s remember the good things that we have. Let’s look at the future. Let’s look at all the things that we’re building.’”
“All of this is important for our kids to stay focused and to feel like their work isn’t in vain. That their lives aren’t in vain,” Mrs. Obama added. “What do we do if we don’t have hope, Oprah?”
