Michelle Obama is known for being just as liberal and just as progressive as her husband. There were even rumors she might run for president one day, but even she shot those allegations down quickly. However, that has never stopped her from making comments to the media, ones that are inappropriate. At a recent event, she made remarks about politicians within the Republican Party that were just disgusting, ignorant, and uneducated.
The Patriot Journal reported,
“Those of us who have been paying attention know that Democrats say one thing, and do another. For years we’ve had to put up with their arrogant virtue signaling. They think they get a badge for pretending to care about ending discrimination, racism, and inequality.
Yet time and again, they are the ones that display the worst kind of discrimination and racial hate. They claim that everyone is equal, that everyone deserves the same respect. But when push comes to shove, they reveal their true colors. We discovered this recently when former First Lady Michelle Obama went on a hateful rant. From The Resurgent: In what may be one of her most bizarre takes yet, the former First Lady was speaking at a women’s conference in Pennsylvania when this happened:
“She said the color and gender dichotomy in Congress was particularly noticeable when she attended State of the Union addresses. “On one side of the room, it’s literally gray and white. Literally, that’s the color palette on one side of the room,” Obama said. “On the other side of the room, there are yellows and blues and whites and greens. Physically, there’s a difference in color, in the tone. Because one side: all men, all white. On the other side: some women, some people of color.” She said she would see that and think “no wonder people don’t trust politics.

Yes, she just said that people don’t trust politics because Republicans are just old, white men. But precisely what does age have to do with trust? What does race have to do with trust? There is no way to characterize these remarks fairly without acknowledging she is disparaging people intentionally on the basis of age and race. That’s textbook ageism. It’s textbook racism.
Identity politics is not the sign of someone with grace. And for anyone still hyperventilating over her DNC speech, disparaging people you disagree with politically because of their age and race is the exact opposite of “going high.” Can someone please explain this to me? How can someone who claims to care about equality attack someone over their race and age? Is Michelle Obama that racist that she can’t believe old white people can be good leaders?
She thinks she can pander to young people and people of color by throwing out those bogus statements. But it reveals her real feelings about millions of Americans. It used to be thought that with age comes wisdom and experience. But in Michelle’s tiny mind, old people are useless and offer nothing to our society. We used to be taught that a person’s character was more important than the color of their skin. But Michelle Obama has no problem using identity politics to denigrate and insult people, because of the color of their skin. Pathetic, Michelle. I know you were hardly a great First Lady, but I at least expected better from someone of your stature. And Democrats expect to win over people with this kind of hypocrisy?”
People were not very happy with her when she made those comments. Especially those within the Republican party. In response, the Chairwoman, Ronna Romney McDaniels, of the Republican National Committee slapped back at the former first lady over her comments. She tweeted out the following message,
“It’s unfortunate Michelle Obama would disregard the contributions of conservative women and people of all backgrounds with one sweeping, false accusation,” McDaniel tweeted Thursday.
The Hill reported,
“The RNC chief was reacting to comments Obama made at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women on Tuesday in which the former first lady took shots at Republicans who refused to work with her husband for the duration of his presidency.
“What you can see is this real dichotomy — on one side of the room, it’s a feeling of color,” Obama said Tuesday. “On one side of the room, it’s literally gray and white. Literally, that’s the color palette on one side of the room.” “On the other side of the room, there are yellows and blues and whites and greens. Physically, there’s a difference in color, in the tone. … Because one side: all men, all white. On the other side: some women, some people of color,” she added. Obama doubled down on her comments the next day at a marketing conference in Boston, telling the crowd that women who voted against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the presidential election betrayed their gender. “Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice,” Obama said Wednesday.””
