Michelle Obama Further Divided The Nation With These Remarks

Michelle Obama made a grand reappearance this week at a feminist event held in Philadelphia.

While her husband-former President Barack Obama has remained active in the political bubble despite tradition begging otherwise, Michelle has made less of a political impact since her dismissal from the White House.

But remarks made during a speech at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women made it very clear what her opinions of the new government were.

With the nation currently in distress over a variety of issues, Michelle’s comments just furthered the divide in the United States.

The former First Lady claimed she “didn’t trust politics” because they were full of “all men, all white (men).”

Breitbart reported:

Speaking about diversity, Obama said, “We should be working actively to mix it up, so we’re getting a real broad range of perspectives on every issue. Shoot, I would see that in Congress.”

She explained, “At the State of the Union address … when you are in the room what you can see is this real dichotomy. It’s a feeling of color almost. On one side of the room is literally gray and white. Literally, that is 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 on one side all men, all white, on the other side some woman, some people of color.”

She continued, “I look at that, and I go, no wonder. No wonder we struggle, no wonder people don’t trust politics. We’re not even noticing what these rooms look like.”

She added, “If people haven’t had the experience of being other and out, and you are trying to fix the problem of those folks, it’s hard to come up with the right answer when you haven’t lived it.”

Feminist groups praised her comments, which were perceived as pushback against gender inequalities in Congress— though females running for Congress are on the rise in recent years.

Fox News reported:

She said she would see that and think “no wonder people don’t trust politics.”

“We’re not even noticing what these rooms look like,” she said, adding that the problem of underrepresentation isn’t limited to the political world.

“Until we are ready to fight for that – which means some people have to be willing to give up their seats to make room, or you need to be ready to add more seats – I think we’re going to continue to struggle,” she said.

Though she initially aimed her accusations against gender dichotomy in Congress, Michelle Obama’s comments were perceived by many as a type of race-baiting.

The former president often used race-baiting tactics in his speeches, in order to gain support of minority members of the nation.

Furthermore, whether Michelle Obama realizes or not, citizens elect individuals to Congress— therefore, if more females ran, perhaps more would be elected.

Do you think Michelle Obama was race-baiting in her comments?

Do you believe there is a gender/race issue in Congress currently?

      Michelle doesn’t realize the women’s movement was in the 60’s and 70’s. She does anything she can to stir up divisiveness, along with her “silver-tongued” husband who continues to spoil all that’s good about our country. These two low-classed people never learned manners and what is needed to enhance and bring our people together. Send them back to Chicago, where they learned about lawlessness!

  • Sydco

    So what about Elaine Chao, Nikki Halley, Ben Carson, Condi Rice, Mia Love, Susana Martinez, Bobby Jindal, Tim Scott, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Brian Sandoval, Betsy DeVos, etc. etc. etc. 22 Republican women in Congress. Michelle Obama just opens her mouth and LIES!! Too bad the media gives credence to her divisive lying…and so much of the public is too brain dead to know better. 😡

  • James

    Mooshell and it’s mooslime husband have one major problem; all they can see is color, either black or white. If it’s while it’s a focus of all their hatred, if it’s black, all they can see is votes!
    The problem is; they can’t see all the gains in relations that had been accomplished over the years, especially since the 60’s. Not to say there have not been set backs, but in those cases, everyone (while and black) need to acknowledge which “party” is responsible for those set backs, the party of divisiveness; the Democraps!

  • Morena_nic

  • Cowboy Randy

    They both need to fade into Oblivian

  • Sergeant_rock

    This “failed” lawyer has been instrumental in widening the racial divide in this nation with her obvious “white hatred” than even Sharpton has…

    She dishes out more poison Kool-ade than Jim Jones ever did every time she opens her mouth and the dim-wits just sit there and lap it up like thirsty dogs in summer heat…

    SHE and her husband are both a major part of the reason we have such racial tension in this country today….

  • Oliver Larmi

    This Obama wife is not an American. She should at least know what the Constitution says: the peaceful transfer of one Presidency to the next one. I wonder what she really learned in school. A disgrace that such a woman called herself once First Lady. Poor America!

  • luvzforplay

    You know if people would stop listening to that dizzy transgendered thing it may go away and hide somewhere and leave us normal folks alone . If she it is thinking about politics she killed herself with those racist idiotic remarks of his defiantly killed that !!! I am surprised that the news services still puts up with it , certainly not news worthy !!

  • Robert Walters

    Do I think her comments are race baiting. NO, of course not. Everything out of this black bitches mouth is racist, she’s a bigot. She said you can’t trust the Washington politics because it’s full of all white men. WTF: Put the Obama family on a bus out of Washington or put them in jail for Treason against the United States Government. Leaders of the Deep State and the New World Order. They must be stopped.

  • Bonnie

    A female Kapernick. No appreciation for what she has been given. First divider rather than first lady should have been her title. Always plays the victim. Grow up Michelle.

  • Russ

    She is nothing but a loud mouth moron, very un-american, I couldn’t care less about anything she has to say about anything, she is too racist for me.
