Michelle Obama compares America with Trump as President to ‘living with a divorced dad’ for the weekend

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has a hard time when it comes to President Trump. She wrote about how depressing the inauguration was in her memoir Becoming, and now she’s comparing the Trump presidency to living with a divorced dad for the weekend.

While in London promoting her book, Obama told late night host Stephen Colbert, “For anyone who had any problems with Barack Obama, let’s just think about what we were troubled by – there were never any indictments.”

She also said she struggles to watch the news and has to turn it off when she’s not emotionally able to deal with it.

“We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled,” Obama said. “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.”

Obama has faith America will survive Trump, though, telling Colbert, “We have always come out at the other end – better and stronger. We are moving in a direction of diversity and inclusion,” she said. “No one ever said it would be easy. We are just in the throes of the uneasy path of change.”
