Former first lady Michelle Obama went onto “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and talked attacked Melania Trump for giving her a present during Trump’s inauguration over a year ago. She holds grudges for a long time. And she holds grudges over people doing nice things for her.
She described the ‘awkward’ moment of receiving the gift. “Never before do you get this gift, so I’m sort of like, ‘Okay, where…? What am I supposed to do with this gift?’ … then everyone cleared out, and no one would come and take the box,” said Michelle.
“My husband saved the day. He grabbed the box and took it back inside,” said Michelle. The gift was a picture frame. Michelle Obama wasn’t done, she went on to describe how horrible America is under President Trump and the only way we can survive is by having hope.
“We are this mosh pit of society, and sometimes there is a rub. But the thing I learned in the eight years that I was in the White House is that what we do every day in our lives, the good things that we do every day — and we know we do it, we show empathy, we care for each other, you know, we do have a lot in common,” said Michelle.
“That’s what it means to lead with hope and not fear. And that’s all we have is hope. I would just encourage your viewers, the country, to do the things we do every day: to love each other, to take care of each other, to show empathy — and you can’t do that only when people make you feel good or safe,” said Michelle.
