Michelle Obama Just Released Massive Statement That Has The Nation Shook To The Core

On Wednesday, former First Lady Michelle Obama had some words for women who voted for Trump in the election: “Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice.” But that isn’t where her vocalized resistance ended…
Obama was discussing her process for writing the book she’s working on, which includes stories about her childhood—“How did that little girl get to be here?”—during a question-and-answer session at Inbound, a marketing and sales conference. Obama was a keynote speaker at the event.

In her book, she reflects on why she was successful. She said success came because she stayed true to her “authentic self,” but feels that not everyone does the same, and used the recent election as an example:

Quite frankly, we saw this in this election. As far as I’m concerned, any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice.

It doesn’t say as much about Hillary, and everybody’s trying to worry about what it means for Hillary, and—No, no, no, what does this mean for us, as women?

What does it mean for us, as women, that we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, “That guy? He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.” Well, to me that just says, you don’t like your voice. You like the thing you’re told to like.

Disturbingly, 53% of white women in America voted for Trump.

Obama also addressed the Republican party’s continued (and unsuccessful) attempts to repeal Obamacare: “The Affordable Care Act isn’t Barack’s legacy,” she said. “It’s the country’s legacy.”

Despite her criticism, Obama said she and former President Obama agree on their hopes for Trump:

We want the sitting president to be successful, because we live in this country. He is our commander-in-chief. He was voted in. We may not like it, but it happened.

When you’ve been in that position, you have a different perspective.

She said she doesn’t miss the White House, although she does miss both the people and the work: “It was like being shot out of a cannon with a blindfold,” she said, “and the spotlight on you!”
