During the 2018 United States of Women Summit last Saturday, former First Lady Michelle Obama spoke about her fears, concerns and frustrations regarding women who would vote for someone like Donald Trump over the most qualified person for the Oval Office—ever—and who just happens to be a woman. Here are some video excerpts from her USOW interview—via IJR.

Video Transcript:

Michelle Obama:

”We’re still at that stage where we’re trying to figure out what it means to be women and what we think of ourselves and what we think of each other. And you know sorry, in light of this last election, I’m concerned about us as women and how we think about ourselves and about each other and what’s really going on. I mean, I think more about what is going on in our heads where we let that happen, you know?

So I do wonder what young girls are dreaming about if we’re still there, when the most qualified person running was a woman and look what we did instead. I mean, that says something about where we are…Forget about everybody else–that’s what away have to explore.

Because if we as women are still suspicious of one another, if we still have this crazy, crazy bar for each other that we don’t have for men, if we’re still doing that today, if we’re not comfortable with the notion that a woman could be our president—and compared to what? You know? It is frustrating to see a lot of men blow it—and win.”

We need more articulate, unabashed questioning and intelligence like this. Will Michelle Obama ever run for President and bring some of that back to the Oval Office? She was asked that question at the summit and said, wisely, we need to concentrate on now. She’s right, but in defense, it’s easy to drift back to the good we had, and look forward to having that kind of integrity in the White House again. And right now—we’re working on it.

We are under attack on social media. Please help us survive by becoming a patron.

I’ve lived in Texas for the past 10 yrs. These people would vote for a maggot if it said it was a Republican & it had a “Christian” sign around it’s neck. They talk like Stepford people & if you ask what values the Republican party have that they agree with they just give you a blank look & they can’t answer. They don’t know. I do not understand how women would vote for a man that brags about sexually assaulting women. I don’t understand how men rationalize that type of behavior either but the women giving him a free… Read more »
