Michelle Obama: America under Trump like ‘living with a divorced dad’

Former First Lady Michelle Obama took a jab at Trump, saying that living in America right now is like living with a “divorced dad.”

“For anyone who had any problems with Barack Obama, let’s just think about what we were troubled by – there were never any indictments,” she said during an interview with late-night host Stephen Colbert in London while promoting her memoir “Becoming,” according to the publication.

“We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled,” Obama said. “Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad.”

Obama added that she recently she has struggled to watch the news and has had to learn to pace herself.

“When I am not emotionally able to deal with it I turn it off for a moment,” she told Colbert. “I only let some of that stuff into my world when I’m ready. You can’t have a steady diet of fear and frustration coming in.”

Obama said she believed the United States had overcome worse challenges than the ones it currently faces.

“We have always come out at the other end – better and stronger. We are moving in a direction of diversity and inclusion,” she said. “No one ever said it would be easy. We are just in the throes of the uneasy path of change.”

The book of Michelle Obama, “Becoming,” had sold nearly 10 million copies. It is considered to be one of the most successful memoirs in history.
