Michelle Obama can’t hide her disdain for Melania Trump
There is no sugarcoating Michelle Obama's venomous response to a question from Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night. At the same time black mobs were beating up innocent white people in Charlotte, North Carolina, showing no mercy, Mrs. Obama, appearing on Colbert's late night show, went after Melania Trump.
"No sympathy"? A more secure first lady would have said, "Yes, I have sympathy for the spouse of a presidential candidate. It's a grueling experience." Then she should have stated she was flattered that Melania liked her speech enough to use a few lines. That's a classy answer.
What is this whole "mean girl" thing Michelle has going on? Is she still in high school, or does she really believe what she implied in her Princeton thesis – that blacks have to act like cliques, separating themselves from whites, in order to establish a power base in an otherwise racist society?
Is Michelle Obama's obvious disdain for Melania a post-traumatic response from her Princeton days? Maybe. In 2010, the wrath of Michelle was directed at another fashion model, former first lady of France, Carla Bruni, in a now famous photo.
Mrs. Obama could very well be in an arrested state of development, unable to move beyond childhood. Colbert actually began the show with himself and Michelle playing children in a "blanket fort." The disturbing visuals aside, when asked if she was stuck on a deserted island with a famous person, who it would be, Mrs. Obama answered, "Beyoncé...she's mine."
That's just creepy, but in all fairness, Michelle might feel indebted to Beyoncé for donating $1.5 million to the terrorist group Black Lives Matter, a favorite of the Obamas.
Michelle's "no sympathy" slam is antithetical to how most Americans view candidates' wives. Regular folks usually do feel compassionate toward the spouses. Even Michelle milked the sympathy vote in her 2008 convention speech. She didn't really want to run, she suggested; she "loved the life we had built for our girls."
We won't hear the media reporting on Michelle's cruelty and hate-filled facial expressions directed at successful white women who aren't Beyoncé. This is a first lady who gives black power speeches to college students and whose daughter Malia was caught on video allegedly smoking dope, twerking, and beer-ponging – all with little mainstream interest. Remember how the media went after the Bush twins? Enough said.
