[TheHill] Michelle Obama has a message for Americans who are frightened by the current political climate: remain hopeful.|
Ah yes. How'd that hopey-changey thing work out for you anyway?
"All we have is hope," the former first lady says in a preview clip from Thursday's "Ellen" show.
After that dummy Trump paddled every other Republican in sight in the primaries and then the Chosen Candidate in the election, he went to work on your smart husband's legacy and has pretty much dismantled it in a year even though he's pulled several punches. Yeah, all you got left is hope. But not in your lifetime.
Obama's sit-down with host Ellen DeGeneres marks her first TV interview since leaving the White House last year.
"People are afraid, but then there are people who feel good about the direction of the country, so I mean, that’s what makes this country complicated because it’s made up of so many different people from different backgrounds," Obama tells DeGeneres, when asked what advice she'd give people who find the world to be a "scary place right now."
Whatever that means.
"The thing I learned in the eight years that I was in the White House is that what we do every day in our lives, the good things that we do every day ‐ and we know we do it: we show empathy, we care for each other, you know, we do have a lot in common," says Obama. "That’s what it means to lead with hope and not fear."
"I would just encourage your viewers, the country, to do the things we do every day: to love each other, to take care of each other, to show empathy ‐ and you can’t do that only when people make you feel good or safe," the 54-year-old Obama said, without mentioning President Trump. "We’ve got to do it all across the board."
Just ignore the crime and problems we've invited by bringing in MS-13 and any terrorists hiding amongst the good immigrants.
"We have to be an open-hearted nation and that’s who we are," she added.
Open hearted to everyone but our own citizens because we can depend on you voting without thinking about it.
"So, let’s just keep living our lives like that every single day and forget what they’re saying in Washington. That’s not necessarily who we are. We know who we are."
We are the only ones whose opinion matters, not the majority. That's who we are.
Obama also shared some lighter moments with DeGeneres as part of the daytime talk show host's 60th birthday celebration on her eponymous chatfest.
Personally, I'd prefer to see the floor dropped out from under her like the contestants in that stupid game show Ellen runs.
The ex-executive mansion resident gifted DeGeneres with a few birthday goodies, including boxed wine, Metamucil, push-up handles and a Barack Obama Chia pet.
Now that's just plain racist.
