Obviously the woman hasn’t looked at the stock market lately.
Via NY Post: Her husband campaigned on a promise to restore “hope,” but now that he’s turning over the White House to Donald Trump that’s evaporated, according to Michelle Obama.
“We feel the difference now. See, now, we are feeling what not having hope feels like,” the first lady told Oprah Winfrey in an interview airing Monday.
“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. He and I and so many believe that. What else do you have if you don’t have hope.”
A snippet of the interview was shown Friday on “CBS This Morning.”
Michelle Obama — who campaigned for Hillary Clinton while disparaging Trump — took an indirect swipe at the president-elect by claiming her husband is a “grown-up” who inspires confidence.
“I feel like Barack has been that for the nation in ways that people will come to appreciate. Having a grown-up in the White House who can say to you in times of crisis and turmoil, ‘Hey, it’s going to be OK. Let’s remember the good things that we have,” she told Oprah.
Trump will take over after his inauguration on Jan. 20.
