During the season finale of her eponymous podcast, former First Lady Michelle Obama took shots at Donald Trump’s White House while also once again complaining about race relations in America.
In the final episode of The Michelle Obama Podcast, Michelle sat down with her mother Marian Robinson and older brother Craig, ostensibly to talk about parenting. However, it quickly became clear that Michelle actually had a political agenda with this podcast (go figure) when she circled the conversation around to an attack on President Trump.

For my final episode of The #MichelleObamaPodcast, I brought on my wonderful mother and brother @CraigMalRob to talk about everything from our upbringing on the South Side of Chicago to our approaches to parenthood. I’ve reflected a lot over the past few years on how fortunate Craig and I were to have the parents we did. Parents who provided us with unconditional love and support, gave us room to grow and make mistakes, and always treated us both as equals. In this episode, you’ll hear a bit about our childhood and the lessons we’ve decided to teach our own children as parents. And even if you don’t have children of your own, I think these conversations about parenting can still provide a window into how each of us have grown and evolved over time. It might even give you a better understanding of the people you’ve been with your whole life. You can listen to our conversation now on @Spotify by clicking the link in my bio.

During the talk, Michelle claimed that black people feel that they need to be “ten times better than” to achieve equality in this country.
“When you leave the safety of your home and go out into the street, where being Black is a crime in and of itself, we have all had to learn how to operate outside of our homes with a level of caution and fear, because you never know,” the former First Lady said. “We grow up, having to have conversations with our children. Because almost everybody I know has had some kind of incident where they were just minding their own business, but living Black, and and go accused of something.”
“You’re taught, you know, people are gonna assume the worst of you,” Michelle added. “So you’ve got to be better than, you’ve got to be ten times better than.”
It was then that she revealed her true agenda with this podcast: bashing Trump.
“And when we were in the White House, we could’ve never gotten away with some of the stuff that’s going on now,” Michelle said, referring to the Trump administration. “Not because of the public, but our community wouldn’t have accepted that.”
It should be noted that Barack actually “got away” with quite a lot during his time in the White House, enacting a whopping 276 executive orders to force his agenda down America’s throats when Congress or anyone else tried to get in his way.
For someone who claims to hate politics as often as Michelle does, she certainly seems to talk about it a lot in her endless quest to destroy Donald Trump.
