s one of the last tasks during her time as America’s First Lady, Michelle Obama said goodbye with tears in her eyes, giving her farewell speech on Friday. While it was music to conservatives’ ears, who are happy to not hear about her lunch programs any longer, there was something else seen on closer look that left many viewers sick.
Michelle spoke to a crowd of educators for 21 minutes in the East Room of the White House to say goodbye to them and the legacy she now leaves behind in school lunch “reform” and support for education. Despite the positive effects of her “work” in this area being hard to find, other than having created a problem where there wasn’t one, she arrogantly took credit for being the change in this country she hoped to see.
Choking back the tears, she started her speech by saying, “Being your first lady has been the greatest honor of my life,” before dropping an insulting bomb that viewers who aren’t particularly fans of hers couldn’t help but notice.
After rambling on to “the young people here and the young people out there,” urging them to never “let anybody make you feel like you don’t matter or like you don’t have a place in our American story because you do, and you have a right to be exactly who you are,” she closed by simply stating, “And I hope I’ve made you proud,” the New York Times reported.
Just like her husband, it’s arrogant to think that after eight years of perpetuating divisiveness, telling black people only that their lives matter, and spending her time in our White House acting as a fan girl to rappers and their wives, that either of them has made us proud.
There’s nothing to be proud of in a trail of failure and abuse of power, preaching to only people of her race to empower them, when they were supposed to represent a nation of all people and support the mantra that as a country we should stand united, not divided by their hidden agenda.
