The former first lady is continuing her speech tour across Amercian and has spoken out again about President Trump and now the Congress as well. During her speech at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women Michelle said:
“At the State of the Union address…one side of the room (is) literally gray and white,” Obama said in conversation with TV writer/producer Shonda Rhimes at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women. “On the other side of the room there are yellows and blues and whites and greens. Physically, there’s a difference in color.”
But she was done and said about young people:
“Many of the young people today, they only know Barack Obama as their president and what that standard felt like and what kind of messages were being talked about,” she said at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women on Tuesday. “They grew up only under hope and possibility and options and opportunity and creating more space.”
Without saying Trump’s name, she added: “I think they will feel some of what’s happening now as intrinsically not what they were taught.”
“They are more open, in ways. I think they are less tolerant of obvious inequities. I think that this generation will look at what is happening now in the world and they will say, ‘This doesn’t feel right because this wasn’t what I was taught.”
Lately the former first lady has been making speeches around the country and has continually spoken out against Trump supporters and the President; however, she has not once mentioned his name.
Many would argue the lessons Obama resulted in “safe spaces,” entitled youth, and unemployed college graduates that had to move in with their parents. Others would say Obama brought in a tidal wave of tolerance and acceptance.
Do you think youth are conflicted?
