Michelle Obama slammed for comparing Trump to divorced dads

That is what America is going through.

Prior to those words of inspiration, the "Crazy In Love" singer recalled the first time she met Obama at former President Barack Obama's first inauguration in 2009 and the "regal, confident" aura that radiated off the First Lady. "Because she resembled us and was moving in spaces where, as black Americans, we weren't exactly meant to be, she seemed so powerful".

The US Muslim lawmaker also accused Trump of stoking right-wing extremism, a development she said was not presidential and benefiting of commander-of-chief.

"Let's just stop and think about - for anybody who had problems with Barack Obama - what we were troubled by".

Obama took aim at Trump, but did not mention him by name during an interview conducted by Stephen Colbert.

She said "we're in a low, but we've been lower" and "any story has its highs and lows, but it continues".

According to Fox News, Sunday while promoting her book Becoming in London, Obama compared her husband's record as president to Trump's and didn't hold back. Yes, we are in a low but we have been lower.

"To make the analogy to divorced dads for someone like Michelle Obama is bad unwoke to use a term that the kids use", Bash said. Though we're all susceptible to nervousness and poorly thought out rhetoric, many divorced dads and affiliates did not respond well to the metaphor.

"We have always come out at the other end - better and stronger". On Twitter, one user said he's disappointed in her lack of overall respect for divorced dads. "We have lived through slavery, the Holocaust and segregation", she said. "We are just in the throes of the uneasy path of change". The uncharacteristically snide comments, which attempted to explain America's decision to elect the controversial Republican president in 2016, were greeted with anger as many took offence to the stereotype of divorced dads being poor parents.
