Former first lady Michelle Obama said she sobbed after leaving the White House and blasted former President Donald Trump’s inauguration for what she called a lack of diversity.

Obama made the comments in a recent episode of her new The Light Podcast shared with People magazine.

In the segment, she blasted Trump’s inauguration as small, lacking in diversity, and against her values.

“That day was so emotional for so many different reasons. We were leaving the home we had been in for eight years, the only home our kids really knew,” Obama lamented. “They remembered Chicago but they had spent more time in the White House than anywhere, so we were saying goodbye to the staff and all the people who helped to raise them.”

Then she raged against Trump being inaugurated.

“There were tears, there was that emotion… but then to sit on that stage and watch the opposite of what we represented on display… there was no diversity, there was no color on that stage. There was no reflection of the broader sense of America,” Obama claimed.

“Many people took pictures of me and they’re like, ‘You weren’t in a good mood?’ No, I was not! But you had to hold it together like you do for eight years,” she declared.

Obama continued, “And then you walk through the Capitol, you wave goodbye, you get on Marine One, and you take your last flight flying over the Capitol… where there weren’t that many people there… we saw it, by the way!”

“And then we went to Andrews Air Force base, said good-bye to the military, and got on Air Force One, and when those doors shut, I cried for 30 minutes straight, uncontrollable sobbing, because that’s how much we were holding it together for eight years,” she declared.

Twitter user @amuse shared photos comparing the two administrations, and wrote, “Michelle Obama cried for 30 minutes after Trump was elected because he wasn’t going to hire enough Black people. If you look at Obama’s cabinet versus Trump’s they both seem fairly light-skinned on average.”

“I am excited to share that The Light Podcast from @HGMedia comes out tomorrow on @Audible_com! I’ll be joined by some of my closest friends to talk about overcoming fear, building strong relationships, kindling the light within ourselves, and so much more,” Obama announced in a Twitter post Monday night.
