Like all Americans, the Obama’s were tuned in on election night.
They all expected Hillary to emerge victorious.
But how did the Obama daughters react when Trump was declared the victor?
In his final press conference, Obama was asked how talked to his daughters about Trump’s victory.
In his answer, he discussed their reaction to Trump’s win.
“The last question posed to Obama in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room in the West Wing of the White House concerned a popular speech his wife, first lady Michelle Obama, gave in October that put the stakes of the U.S. presidential election in personal terms. She addressed many concerns that women, LGBT individuals and ethnic minorities have about President-elect Donald Trump.
Obama was asked how he was interpreting the meaning of former reality TV show host Trump’s startling victory and how he was discussing the issue with his daughters.
“My daughters are something. They just surprise and enchant and impress me more and more each day as they grow up. These days, when we talk, we talk as parent to child but also we learn from them. I think it was really interesting to see how Malia and Sasha reacted,” Obama replied.
“They were disappointed. They paid attention to what their mom said during the campaign and believed it, because it’s consistent with what we’ve tried to teach them in our household and what I’ve tried to model as a father with their mom and what we’ve asked them to expect from future boyfriends or spouses.”
In Michelle Obama’s big campaign speech, she attacked Trump in personal terms and painted his candidacy as beyond the pale.
The media heaped rapturous praise upon her speech and declared it a defining moment of the campaign.
But because they lived in a left-wing bubble, they had no idea that Michelle Obama’s plea for identity politics had fallen on the deaf ears of Middle America who were left to sift through the rubble of Obama’s disastrous Presidency.
During his final press conference, Obama made one more statement regarding what he told his daughters, and it left many observers wondering just what universe he was living in.
Yahoo also reports:
“They don’t mope. And what makes me proudest about them is that they don’t get cynical about it. They have not assumed that because their side didn’t win or because some of the values they care about don’t seem that they were vindicated, that somehow America has rejected them or rejected their values.”
But, America has rejected Obama. They rejected him for his values of political correctness, embracing Black Lives Matter, globalism, and viewing America as inherently racist.
Donald Trump stood in opposition to everything Obama championed.
And it wasn’t just that Trump won.
It was that Barack and Michelle Obama framed the presidential campaign as a matter of values and what America stood for.
By electing Trump, America rejected the arrogant, coastal liberalism that has thumbed its nose at Middle America.
