Skip to comments.Michelle Obama Offers Coping Techniques For Turbulent Times During Talk[tr] (barf alert)
Posted on 11/17/2017 8:35:46 AM PST by simpson96
Ten months after leaving the White House, Michelle Obama offered advice on how to live in the Trump era to a packed house at The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts.
The former first lady never mentioned President Donald Trump by name during her 75-minute talk Thursday night, but she laid out her strategy for coping in tumultuous times. Focus on what you can control, she said. Be a good person every day. Vote. Read. Treat one another kindly. Follow the law. Don't tweet nasty stuff.
Those small, personal actions will have an enormous effect on the nation, Obama said. The impact of all of us in our everyday lives is greater than anything that can come from the White House, a philosophy she said applies to whomever occupies the presidency.(snip)
Many in the audience were nostalgic for the Obama years. Shes down to earth, just like us, said Mary Ellen Rourke, who is 63 and lives in Wolcott. I never remember a first lady who was so down to earth shes so inspiring.
I wish she would run, said Alejandra Rivera, a 17-year-old student from Hartford who came to hear the speech with several classmates. Im praying she does.
Obama was quick to throw water on Riveras hopes. A lot of people say 'oh, you should run, Obama said. If we keep looking for that one person to run, we're getting it wrong. We don't need another Michelle or Barack, we need thousands and thousands of them all over the world.

I wish she would have offered these “tips” to Americans when her “partner” was in the White House.
No sale, Mike!
OP: I like your music posts better. :-)
How much did she get for her speech?
She going to run in 2020 essentially giving Obama a 3rd term
You see what I see UncBob.
They are torching all 2020 wannabees, Hilda, Slo-Joe ( especially the SS wife-boob-grab XMas party leak ) and Frankenfraud who said he'd like to run. Sex-Harassment is only a tool, just like the IRS to these power freaks, and they are using it when they need it, and now they need it to destroy the old guard. IMHO Obama has his fingerprints all over this including Brazile.
Outside our circles ask, a lot of America fawns over Mooochelle, I don't get it, but it is reality.
They laughed when I told them Trump would win, take MI and the markets would rock. Go ahead laugh at my Mooochelle comments...
I think Mooch is inherently too lazy to be POTUS.
Too lazy to want the job, that is.
She wants to be waited on, and live in luxury, not work hard.
Me too, but the power is SO tempting!
And she’s still got Val the Lizard Queen to be POTUS for her, while she rubs elbows w/celebs at the WH hip-hop weed nights.
The Obamas will never go away, they are part of the same grifter family as the Xlintons.
They think they are still relative.
I think she's got a winner instinct and remember when the put a lid on her when she said Barack is not going to let you go back to your lives? It must be killing her she had to hold it in this whole time. She is the ardent ideologue of this power couple, and an Alpha, I do not discount her....
I wish she would have offered these tips to Americans when her partner was in the White House.
Ya took the words right outta my mouth..........;)

1. Don’t duct tape your package to the back of your leg, it adds undue stress.
That kiss is comfortless
As frozen water to a starv-ed snake
“Follow the law”
I will when y’all do. How ‘bout that?
Exactly what her husband did for eight brutal years.
Focus on what you can control.
Be a good person every day.
Treat one another kindly.
Follow the law. Follow the laws you think are important, and break the ones you don't, such as immigration laws, voting laws, discrimination laws, and such. Don't tweet nasty stuff Don't tweet nasty stuff like "All this for a flag", "It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations" or "After my election I have more flexibility"...you should say them in private where you think people won't hear you and you can be your true self"...
“She going to run in 2020 essentially giving Obama a 3rd term”
Let’s hope so, but we couldn’t be that lucky.
President Trump could phone it in and it would be 1984 redux.
Moochie has a bad case of “Oprah envy”, (s)he wants to be Opie in the worst way.
