was ‘very emotional’: Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama in an interview Saturday evening said the night before President Trump’s inauguration in January 2017 was “very emotional.” "The truth is, on that day I was moving my children out of the only house they had really grown up in,” the former first lady told Gayle King of CBS News at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. “I think that gets lost on people.” She said she was rushing to get her daughters and their friends out of the White House after they’d had a sleepover the night before the inauguration. “The girls didn't get up,” she explained.

Emotional because the Welfare Queen had to get off the publicly funded gravy train.

Oh please. Her husband ran the most corrupt administration in the history of the Presidency. The family took lavish vacations at tax payer expense and invited untold numbers of friends and family on foreign jaunts. Racism was breathed into this country by the agitator in Chief and his angry wife who was never proud of her country until her husband was elected President. She was caught on camera at an event saying, “all this for a damn flag.” Frankly, she was embarrassment most of the time. He was nothing more than a community organizer who hit it big with his fellow anti-American zealots who created his persona out of whole cloth for the sole purpose of fundamentally transforming this country. The tears she and her children shed before the Trump inauguration was probably due to the realization that they were being forced off the gravy train and would not be catered to and their every whim realized. The Obamas are much like the Clinton’s in that politics is their scam and money and power is the end game. The corruption that exploded under the Obama administration will, if justice is served, be the only legacy of this socialist cabal. Then Obama and his comrades should be shedding real tears for conspiracy to interfere in a Presidential election and then facilitation of sedition against a sitting President. The majority of Americans just want justice for the crimes they have committed. It will be enough. However, more troubling than the criminal activity is the division and lawlessness that Obama seeded throughout the country and the media then watered. The nation is divided because of this man’s relentless effort to tear apart the unity that held us together as Americans and that is a real cause for tears.

For selfish, spoiled brats, everything is 'emotional.' You lived in the White House for 8 years, your daughters could've had sleepover parties every night for 6 months, yet you allowed them and their friends to have a sleepover party there when a new family was coming in the next morning, knowing the group likely wouldn't have had a full night's sleep, wouldn't be up bright and early to politely gather their belongings and allow staff to clean the residence.

I thought all the things of the former President had to be moved out so the things of the new President could be moved in. The Obama's had already bought a mansion in DC. Why did they allow their girls to have a sleepover in the WH! How dulmb was that! They also had indicated that they hated living in the WH. They never said that they loved it soooo much. She is really full of it saying and doing anything to get attention and keep herself in the limelight. Of course, she gets paid big bucks to talk and appear on stage. I am sooooo tired of the Obama's. She is still playing the racist card. She is just like the race hustlers Sharpton and Jackson who keep the racial bias front and center all the time.

Yeah, BO made the presidency "look easy". A doper showing up to stock shelves at a grocery store makes the job look easy too. That's because they don't really do any work. That's why people don't hire dopers. We shouldn't have given BO a job either, even if Biden did think he was clean.

Aww poor Michelle crying the night before they finally left the WH they corrupted. She’s crying because the country would eventually find out the dirty work her commie husband had choreographed. We are sick of the Obamas and go away.

What a tiresome hag Mooch is. She complained non-stop about living in the White House, and yet complains about having to leave. Any chaos that morning was the result of her stupid decision to allow the surly sisters to have a sleepover the night before the move. As for the White House being the "only house they had really grown up in," the surly sisters were born in 1998 and 2001, so they'd lived somewhere else before they moved in at 11 and 8 in 2009. What they were probably upset about was losing a staff of servants to kiss up to them.

Like Prince said, ''Life is a party, and the party does not last.'' The Obamas seemed surprised that their reign would actually come to an end. At some point they realized much of the time was squandered on long vacations, fundraisers, parties with celebrities, and endless 'exclusive interviews''. Thank God for the 22nd Amendment with its 2-term limit.

All she managed to portray is that she was very unorganized. Any normal homemaker knows better than having a sleepover the night before a big event. Of course, she didn’t have to worry about managing anything. Her huge staff would do everything for her.

Who in their right mind would allow your daughters to have a sleep over the night before the inauguration, knowing you have to get out that day. But then again, with the Obama's it was never about our country, it was about celebrity, about status with the elites. They used Air Force One like it was a taxi cab jetting to vacation spots, concerts and late night TV shows. Fact is, Obama and his partner turned the presidency into a part time job. Both of them, total frauds, elected by the illiterates of the democratic party. Get it yet.

Yeah, I bet getting evicted from the White House was no fun at all. No more free worldwide vacays and shopping trips. No more jaunts on Air Force One. No taxpayer-funded personal staff of 28 jumping to your every whim. Watching servants pack your ugly clothes and prying Moms Robinson away from the breakfast table and her Belgian waffle must have been a heartbreaker. Then there’s getting Stinky out of bed before 10am. What a pain.

After the CNN debates earlier this week, many were shocked to see 2020 Democrats go after Joe Biden by trashing the Obama-Biden years. Biden himself said that while he expected to be attacked, “I was a little surprised how much the incoming was about Barack.” He added, “I hope the next debate we can talk about our answers to fix the things that Trump has broken, not how Barack Obama made all these mistakes. He didn't.” But Biden shouldn’t be surprised one bit. If he didn’t expect this, then he’s not a smart candidate. Months ago I pointed out that by jumping in the race, “Biden [wasn’t] simply putting his legacy

Ten people were killed Saturday night when gunfire broke out in Dayton, Ohio, according to police. The number of fatalities included the gunman, though how the unidentified shooter died was not immediately clear. According to Dayton Police, some officers were in the area at the time and "were able to respond and put an end to it quickly." Witnesses said they saw an unspecified number of “walking wounded” in the area, according to local media reports. A spokesperson for Miami Valley Hospital said 16 victims were being treated there, NBC News reported. Lt. Col. Carper of the Dayton Police Department also reported at least 16 injured.

As the political chattering class has been focused on parsing and analyzing every syllable of this week's Democratic debates, I'd like to briefly revisit an illustrative episode that helps underscore one of the President Trump's most powerful advantages heading into 2020. Because the Resistance-minded media and Democratic Party are on constant hair-trigger alert to signal their strident and total opposition to Trump, this impulse often leads them to make dumb, indefensible, strategically-damaging, reactionary decisions. This is true on the policy level, of course, but it also bleeds over into associations and alliances. As Katie pointed out on Tuesday, several top-tier presidential candidates went out of their way

In The Case for Trump, Victor Davis Hanson, a classicist and military historian, brings his expert knowledge from years of academia to bear on his analysis of the political and sociological events that led to a Trump election. The Hoover Institute scholar doesn’t ignore Trump’s flaws or gloss over his failures, but he also doesn’t exaggerate them. Hanson does not paint a black and white portrait of Trump, but uses a Machiavellian shade of gray to demonstrate that, despite his flaws, Trump is the one to get the job done. He likens Trump to Augustus, a renowned builder; to Julius Caesar bravely crossing the Rubicon;

It matters not that Mueller concluded there was insufficient evidence to bring charges against President Trump; he and his entire two-year investigation are now being disowned by ardent Democrats dead set on impeaching the president. Nadler’s hope is to uncover some testimony, however remote, that he can claim as the basis for an impeachment initiative. It is settled law, at least within the District of Columbia circuit,

President Trump has perfected the art of the undorsement, the ability to get his opponents to beatify whoever and whatever he denigrates. Whether a first-term congresswoman, a quarterback or the city of Baltimore, #resistance to his targeting is futile. Unfortunately, “the enemy of my enemy is my infallible hero” is a terrible approach to politics, aptly demonstrated this week when Trump turned his sights on the public figures who stepped in to defend Baltimore’s honor. Al Sharpton — who should still be seen as a notorious hate figure but has somehow escaped that fate — practically tripped over himself trying to get Trump’s attention.
