During her latest tour to promote her memoir "Becoming" former First Lady Michelle Obama made an unflattering allusion to US President Donald Trump.
Michelle Obama has come under fire for an unfortunate comparison she made, holding President Donald Trump as a negative example.
The former First Lady commented on the Trump administration during an interview in London on her European book tour for her memoir, "Becoming."
"The presidency does not change who you are, it reveals who you are.”
Michelle took several pot-shots at Trump for his unorthodox Presidency, his slew of indictments, and the growing racial tension in the country.
She compared the Trump presidency to the experience a child from a broken marriage goes through:
“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.”
The former First Lady tongue-in-cheek comparison angered many men, who pointed out that divorced dads are responsible and effective parents who take good care of their children, sick or healthy.
