What a spot-on analogy…
While speaking to Simmons President Helen Drinan, the former First Lady compared Trump’s presidency to that of husband Barack Obama‘s using a very interesting, but accurate metaphor.
According to People, the 54-year-old exclaimed:
“For the eight years Barack was president, it was like having the ‘good parent’ at home. The responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time… And now we have the other parent. We thought it’d feel fun, maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day and stay up late, and not follow the rules.”‘
Speaking of Barack, Michelle also mused on her husband’s eight years in office:
“I think about what I’ve learned from my husband, and I’ve learned watching him be a leader… And a lot of what I’ve learned about temperament and patience that really comes from him. I think he was born with that DNA… What I learned is that as he said, the arc of history is long, and what we’re here to do is make a mark. And you do what you do because you know it’s the right thing to do, not because you’ll get credit for it, or because it says something about your personal legacy. You do the work because you’re slowly moving the needle. There are times in history when we feel like you’re going backward, but that’s part of the growth.”
And no, Miz Obama has no plans to be commander-in-chief. Sorry y’all!
“I don’t want to be president, I don’t think I should be president. I think I can do a lot of things, but that’s not one of them… And we have to find women who understand their gifts and know where to put them to use. I know what I’m good at.”
Some things are not meant to be…
