  • Michelle Obama’s condescending and disgracefully out of touch advice to job-seeking women

    10/18/2017 3:29:54 PM PDT · by BBell · 17 replies ^ | 10/11/17 | Liz Peek
    Isn’t Michelle Obama adorable? She actually thinks she is a typical woman in the United States, and that she can speak for all of us. Michelle says she has no interest in running for president, trying to shatter what Hillary Clinton called the “highest and hardest glass ceiling,” but she might consider bursting out of that elitist, condescending Beltway Bubble. Speaking recently at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women, Obama pushed women to speak up for themselves in the workplace. “Don’t waste your seat at the table,” she said. “If you are scared to use your voice, then you’ve got to...
  • Obamas continue to divide US society

    Neither Michelle Obama, Barack Hussein Obama nor Hillary Clinton will go away. Why does the media keep giving them a platform and allow them to continue to encourage and enable division in America? The former First Lady’s latest attention-grabbing stunt was to dismiss the entire GOP as entirely male and white. Needless to say, the Republican Party is not taking kindly to Mrs Obama’s reckless race-baiting. “It’s unfortunate Michelle Obama would disregard the contributions of conservative women and people of all backgrounds with one sweeping, false accusation,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News on Thursday. Obama’s comments came on...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama lamented Tuesday that the lack of diversity in the Republican Party and Congress as a whole is part of the reason why the American people don’t trust politics. Speaking with television producer Shonda Rhimes at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women in Philadelphia, Mrs. Obama said she noticed the stark contrast in diversity and “color” between the two parties every time she attended the State of the Union address while her husband was office. “Usually at the State of the Union address … when you’re in the room, what you can see is this real dichotomy,”...

    Michelle Obama was outspoken about what today’s young generation is learning from President Donald Trump and how they won’t “tolerate” certain values he represents. The former first lady appeared at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women on Tuesday to discuss a mix of topics, many of which had to do with the current presidency and how it’s impacting the nation’s next generation. CNN recapped many of Michelle Obama’s statements when it came to addressing the differences between her husband’s administration and Trump’s. Adhering to her signature rule of not uttering Trump’s name when attacking his leadership, she managed to get her...

    Yahoo! News ^ | September 27, 2017 | Caroline Bologna, The Huffington Post
    Former President Barack Obama has a clear sense of what leadership values he wants to instill in his daughters. During a Q&A with Bill and Melinda Gates at a Sep. 20 event sponsored by their foundation, he discussed how he and Michelle talk to Malia and Sasha about being leaders. At the Gates Foundation event, Obama offered three pieces of advice (beginning around the 30-minute mark in the above video). 1. Being responsible is a privilege. “What we’ve tried to communicate their entire lives is that each us has responsibilities,” the former commander-in-chief said. “When they were small, their responsibilities...

    The former first lady said women who chose Trump voted ‘against their own voice’ Adapted from a story by The Washington Post’s Eugene Scott. Former first lady Michelle Obama was dispatched by the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016 to rally female voters. “We need someone who is compassionate . . . someone who will be a role model for our kids. . . . If a [candidate] is erratic, if [they] disrespect our fellow citizens . . . let me tell you, that is who they are,” she said in September 2016. We know what happened next. Millions of women...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama is the right candidate to run for Democrats in 2020, according to a former Bill Clinton pollster. Douglas Schoen said in an op ed for The Hill that Obama would fare better against incumbent Donald Trump than any of the other candidates who are being touted as potential future leaders. “As I’ve said before, the Democrats need an alternative plan to rebuild and unite the party if they have any hope in winning back seats in Congress in the 2018 midterms, nonetheless the White House in 2020,” Schoen wrote for The Hill. “This alternative plan...

    The United States won't officially elect its next President until 2020. Between now and then, we should all be focused on local elections, essential congressional races, and pushing for meaningful reforms addressing voting rights and criminal justice every chance we get. I'm all about that. However, here's what I know — the next presidential race has already started. Donald Trump has already begun political fundraising and potential opponents, including some from within his own party, are already having private discussions on what it would look like to beat Trump. This next campaign will be the longest, most expensive campaign in...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama was a breath of fresh air as usual while making a public appearance in Colorado since leaving the White House for a live armchair conversation with The Women’s Foundation of Colorado President Lauren Casteel. But even as poised and graceful as always, Obama touched on some tough topics, speaking out frankly about the hurt she felt from the racist attacks she received while in the White House. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said when Casteel asked her about the trials of being the first black...

    Last night, Michelle Obama was the honored guest of the annual ESPY awards. Naturally, the media collective was head over heels with praise and admiration. At the Sacramento Bee, Brian Blomster had what can only be described as a literary orgasm. Obama, he said, "wowed attendees" with a "black Cushnie et Ochs dress that was all curves and slashes." According to Blomster's reporting, Obama "gave the evening a markedly high-fashion feel." In tune, USA Today remarked, "Civilian life looks good on Michelle Obama. If Barack Obama is America's ex-boyfriend, the former first lady is this country's one that got away."...

    Melania Trump has been skewered for costing taxpayers an exorbitant amount of money for staying at Trump Tower in New York City after her husband’s inauguration. The price for protecting the first lady and first son, Barron, was estimated to be about $147,000 per day. Melania and Barron moved into the White House on June 14 and are now semi-permanent residents at 1600 Pennsylvania during Donald Trump’s term as president.
