According to First Lady Michelle Obama, Americans no longer feel hope since Donald Trump won the election.
During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the First Lady was asked if she feels that Barack Obama’s administration had achieved his goals for America.
“Yes. I do,” she said. “Because we feel the difference now. See, now, we are feeling what not having hope feels like. You know. Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept and Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was just a nice slogan to get votes. He and I and so many believe, what else do you have when you do not have hope?”
Michelle Obama also claims that her husband was like a father to the country by calming it while when it got hurt.
“I feel like Barack has been that for the nation, in ways that people will come to appreciate. Having a grownup in the White House who can say to you in times of crisis and turmoil, ‘Hey it’s going to be OK,’” she said.
