So it all came down to sour grapes. All the trashing of Trump by the media and the Democrats comes down to one simple thing: they are jealous and mad at themselves because Trump and the GOP get the job done.
The Democrats do not and hem and haw and play identity politics while the GOP just wins. That is essentially what Michelle Obama is saying in a new interview where she trashed Trump’s inauguration crowd as not reflective of the country and trashed his speech calling it “that speech.”
She went on to say Barack was raked over the goals by the GOP and had to be more than perfect to avoid scandal, etc.
And there is the rub – the Democrats worry about their appearance (which is why Jared Kushner, a longtime Democrat has been such a disaster) while the GOP just gets stuff done.
There will be scandals and media fights from the opposition, no matter who it is, the key for Trump and the GOP is they simply ignore them, while the Democrats are still whining.
Michelle said: “Then to sort of sit at that inauguration and to look around at a crowd that was not reflective of the country.”
“It was just such the opposite… During Barack’s inauguration, we made sure that the crowd looked like all of America. Having the Tuskegee airmen, having civil rights folks, having folks who had marched. You could look out at his crowd and you would see America. All of it.”
“And I had to sit in that audience, one of a handful of people of color, and then listen to that speech, and all that I had sort of held on to for eight years, watching my husband get raked over the coals, feeling like we had to do everything perfectly, no scandal, no nothing,” she said.
“It was a lot emotionally.”
“So by the time I got on the plane, it was a release of eight years of having to try to show up, as we all know we have to do, we have to show up not only perfectly but a little bit better than perfect to even be considered equal,” she said. “And it was an exhaustion of eight years of that.”
