Michelle O and the Giant Chip on Her Shoulder

I swear, Michelle Obama looks for racism under every rock, in every nook and cranny of her everyday life. For example, on her Thursday podcast, Michelle O complained that “white people don’t even see me.”

Shorter Michelle O podcast complaint: Don’t you know who I am? 

Here she is — a former first lady, who owns an $11.75M home in Martha’s Vineyard, who has graced the covers of multiple magazines (while the beautiful Melania Trump gets bupkis), and who has been ranked as the “most admired” woman in the whole freakin’ world — and she can’t get a break from racism.

Racist exhibit A, according to Michelle O’s podcast, was an incident she claimed happened when she was still FLOTUS. She and daughters Sasha and Malia, along with a friend, went out for ice cream after a soccer game. She alleges that she told the Secret Service to “stay back” because they were “trying to be normal.”

At any rate, here’s what Obama says happened:

“They’re not even looking at me. So, I’m standing there with two little Black girls, another Black female adult, they’re in soccer uniforms. And a White woman cuts right in front of us to order, like she didn’t even see us.”

Like that never happens to anyone else. Insert giant eyeroll here.

But it gets worse, according to Michelle O.

“All she saw was a Black person, or a group of Black people, or maybe she didn’t even see that, because we were that invisible. I can tell you a number of stories like that, when I’ve been completely incognito, during the eight years in the White House, walking the dogs on the canal. People will come up and pet my dogs, but will not look me in the eye. They don’t know it’s me.”

“Eight years in the White House.” Privileged much?

However, while Obama says she has a racially diverse group of female friends, the most important women are her black friends. Not the white womyns.

“My girlfriend group, while it is diverse, it has been so important for me to have Black women in my crew. There’s just a certain relief that comes when you don’t have to walk into your friend group and explain yourself.”

Could you imagine the hell that would erupt if Melania Trump publicly said that she was closest to her Slovenian friends? That she wouldn’t have to “explain herself” to those women? The hue and cry would go out across social media that Melania is a racist just like her husband!

Naturally, the media are happy to attend Michelle O’s pity party. She even shocked Oprah by telling her that she cried for 30 minutes after leaving the White House.

I remember crying my eyes out some years ago, too. It happened when we were going home after the wedding of our daughter. She had married a Navy officer and I realized that she would never be living in Kansas City again. Yes, Michelle. White women cry for lots of reasons, too.

Michelle Obama could use her fame to try to heal the racial divide in this country. She could remind young black Americans that the nation — while not perfect — has come a long way in race relations. That black Americans like Tim Scott, Kim Klacik, and Herschel Walker could speak of the success they have earned in the United States.

But you know what this is all about, don’t you.

She’s using her voice to further racial division in order to discredit President Trump and to gain the White House for the Democrats. For someone who famously asserted that “I hate politics” at the DNC, she’s playing passive-aggressive politics by burnishing that everything-is-racist chip on her shoulder — a chip that is not a bug, but a feature.

  • Dietrich says:

    I wish this scrunt would just declare she hates the United States and emigrate somewhere, anywhere!

    • Gus365 says:

      Would that she would…but then where’s the grift in that?
      Where’s the media “poor me” spotlight anywhere else on the planet?

  • Scott says:

    Mooch is a racist POS, always has been, always will…”She could remind young black Americans that the nation — while not perfect — has come a long way in race relations.”.. She could, but that would fly in the face of her “for the first time in my adult life I’m proud of my country” comment, as well as all the divisive shit her husband did during the 8 years in which he tried to destroy the country. As Dietrich said above, her and her husband just need to GTFO and leave us all alone.

  • Robin H says:

    I don’t believe she ever walked those dogs. She had “people” for that. When the lens of your existence is racism EVERYTHING can be explained by that. Normal everyday things that happen to all of us (and she’d know that if she listened to her supposed white friends) become racist events. There are days when I’m out driving and everyone keeps cutting in front of my car. I laugh and say I’m invisible today! Maybe it’s really racism against the color of my car??

  • Quentin-Q Quill says:

    I’d be just fine with Melaina saying she felt most comfortable with her Slovenian friends.

  • Teresa says:

    Someone once commented how ironic it was the more successful blacks became, the more they complained of “racism”, real or imagined. All while white men are THE ONLY racial group who can be LEGALLY discriminated against. We have to fight back against this.

  • clark e myers says:

    It’s interesting to read the senior writing about how a full ride affirmative action experience at Princeton was so much less than she deserved.

  • Sock Monkey says:

    I thought her name was Mike?

  • Chris says:

    Comes naturally to her. She has been peddling this crap at least since she was a Princeton undergrad. Sad that she gets extremely wealthy by doing it.

  • Jim Blackwell says:

    Michelle is correct about racism and privilege existing. Had she not been black – she never would have received 8 figure TV and book deals – and would not have multiple estates.

  • mac says:

    Ah. So we get to hear from the more vicious half of the worst couple of grifters ever to live in the White House. If I had the misfortune to encounter you, I wouldn’t look at you either. This is because what I would have to say to you would place me in immediate conflict with your undeserved Secret Service detail. In a just country, you and your husband would be doing the rest of your lives in Gitmo, and I’d be glad to tell you that to your face.

    The best you and your husband deserve is the people’s utter contempt.

  • Bevo says:

    I think her real problem is that she knows she was given a free ride in school and a great job in Chicago only because she was black. Will we ever be able to go back to hiring those who are qualified rather then those are not?

  • George V says:

    On occasion we will see local sports or TV celebs while out shopping. The regular folks in the store will ignore the celebs, beyond maybe a smile or hello when they pass in the aisle. The celebs are just out running errands and the regular folks respect that. That is, for want of a better way to explain it, our culture. Our culture is to respect the celebs privacy and leave them alone. Perhaps Mrs. Obama doesn’t understand a culture like that.

    Regarding the woman who cut in line at the ice cream stand, again we don’t know all the facts. I’ve encountered people in lines who are so busy talking they don’t move up to the point where I’ve cut in line because they don’t appear to be in the line. Or there are people who don’t read the menu board until they are at the window, then stand back for several minutes discussing options. Again, are they really in line? Or there are people who are just oblivious to the existence of lines and always just go directly to the window. Right now we only know one version of what happened.

  • Jess_Sumguy says:

    S(he) is living a total lie. Not worth the trouble to even worry about for those who know who she really is. I’m still waiting to see those pregnancy photos.

  • Nobody of Consequence says:

    Shut up, Michael. . . (evil grin)

  • rbj1 says:

    ” People will come up and pet my dogs, but will not look me in the eye. They don’t know it’s me.”

    You know what, that happens to me too. And I’m a white guy. Strangers like dogs. Meanwhile I have to be on guard to see if there are other dogs around because mine do not like other dogs.

    It must be tough to go through life so bitter.

  • suburbanbanshee says:

    Maybe Michelle did go incognito, but I am pretty sure everybody recognized her and was being shy or polite in pretending they didn’t know her. And then she complains because people shyly didn’t meet her eyes? Or because they focused on the dogs, which is usually what happens when walking dogs? Sigh.

    If people really were racists, the Secret Service would have refused to “drop back.” They would have needed to surround her to protect her from casual racial violence as well as political assassins. (And apparently she didn’t recognize the teams ahead of her clearing the way, so who is not seeing whom?)

  • Faithandhope says:

    As rbj1 said, bitter. Angry. Self-loathing. She’s obviously a miserable person. After living her life of the last 10 years or so…. and all she has is victimology and contempt. She definitely qualifies as a “bitter clinger”. I wish she would’ve stayed with her “lovely” family in Chicago. America would be a better place! Just go away Mike… and take Barry with you!!

  • Ondelay Riba says:

    Eyes bugging, mouth flapping, nostrils flaring, this rumpfed ronyon stirs he/she/its dripping cauldron like the witches’ coven on MacBeth’s “heath near Flores”.

    Read Madame’s dimwitted college thesis (sic), rife with illiterate misspellings, ungrammatical, a quota-baby’s attitudinal dogpile without a glimmer of intellectual interest or integrity: Big mouth, big talk, a dreary scold with all the power of a “return-to-sender” rubber stamp.

    The message this sadsack WOC-a-baby blats forth is, rule-or-ruin: “If we can’t man your helm, we’ll sink your ship.” (Of course, any such trippin’ trollop would do that anyway.) And speaking of Greco-Roman, Judaeo-Christian “cultural appropriation”: We eagerly await Mde. Soetoro’s invocation of the Algerian Aristotle, Ethiopian Einstein, Kenyan Kant; the Liberian Leonardo, Moroccan Mozart; the Nigerian Newton, Rwandan Rembrandt, the Sudanese Shakespeare.

    Meantime, O grimacing Michelle, go oviposit your ichneumon eggmass in whatever Cloud CooCoo Land your stunted l’il glands prefer.

  • Sadie McQueen says:

    Wait…she complains about people not seeing her, but didn’t she complain once as flotus that a short person was racist because shorty asked mooch to retrieve something from a higher shelf?

  • Stephen Goldstein says:

    Small point . . . .

    “while the beautiful Melania Trump doesn’t get bupkis” should be “. . . Melania Trump gets bupkis” – as in she gets nothing, nada, nichts . . . bupkis.

  • Claude Hopper says:

    That chip on her shoulder — something a fellow from fly-over-country might politely call a meadow muffin.

  • Mary says:

    “Didn’t recogise me” damned if they do and damned if they don’t. Can’t win with some people. But most racist act was someone getting a Nobel prize for the color of their skin and nothing else.
