Michelle Obama Looks Back at Transition from Obama Presidency to Trump Presidency

Michelle Obama is looking back on her husband Barack Obama‘s peaceful transition of power to Donald Trump after the 2016 election amid the current president’s attempts to change the results of the 2020 election.

Trump continues to claim that he won the election, even though the election has been called for Joe Biden.

“This week, I’ve been reflecting a lot on where I was four years ago. Hilary Clinton had just been dealt a tough loss by a far closer margin than the one we’ve seen this year. I was hurt and disappointed—but the votes had been counted and Donald Trump had won. The American people had spoken. And one of the great responsibilities of the presidency is to listen when they do. So my husband and I instructed our staffs to do what George and Laura Bush had done for us: run a respectful, seamless transition of power—one of the hallmarks of American democracy. We invited the folks from the president-elect’s team into our offices and prepared detailed memos for them, offering what we’d learned over the past eight years,” Michelle wrote on Instagram on Monday (November 16).

She continued, “I have to be honest and say that none of this was easy for me. Donald Trump had spread racist lies about my husband that had put my family in danger. That wasn’t something I was ready to forgive. But I knew that, for the sake of our country, I had to find the strength and maturity to put my anger aside. So I welcomed Melania Trump into the White House and talked with her about my experience, answering every question she had—from the heightened scrutiny that comes with being First Lady to what it’s like to raise kids in the White House.”

Michelle concluded, “I knew in my heart it was the right thing to do—because our democracy is so much bigger than anybody’s ego. Our love of country requires us to respect the results of an election even when we don’t like them or wish it had gone differently—the presidency doesn’t belong to any one individual or any one party. To pretend that it does, to play along with these groundless conspiracy theories—whether for personal or political gain—is to put our country’s health and security in danger. This isn’t a game. So I want to urge all Americans, especially our nation’s leaders, regardless of party, to honor the electoral process and do your part to encourage a smooth transition of power, just as sitting presidents have done throughout our history.”

World's Most Admired Men & Women of 2020 Revealed - See the Top 10!

The most admired men and women of the year have just been revealed!

The results were found in an annual study by YouGov – their largest ever, with more than 45,000 people in 42 countries and territories being interviewed to compile the list.

“The results are calculated from the combination of responses to two questions – whether a respondent admires the figure at all and then whether they are the figure the respondent admires the most. Each nation’s results in the global compilation are also weighted to represent the country’s population size,” YouGov reports.

“Entertainers especially dominate the female list, with 12 of the most admired women being actresses, singers or TV presenters (although some…are also notable for their humanitarian work). By contrast, the list of most admired men contains more people from political, business and sporting backgrounds.”

These two politicians tied for first place last year.

Michelle Obama Gives Advice on Love & Marriage, Admitting She Wanted To Push Husband Barack Out a Window On Some Occasions

Michelle Obama is opening up about her marriage with Barack Obama on the latest episode of her podcast, featuring guest Conan O’Brien.

The former First Lady spoke to Conan on the importance of picking partners carefully when it comes to love and emphasized that there have been times in her own marriage that she’s wanted to push Barack out the window on occasions when they have had disagreements.

“People aren’t perfect. Marriage is hard. It’s a struggle for everyone. But, the question you have to ask is do you want to spend this life with somebody? Do you want to build something with someone? And there’s no magic way to make that happen,” she stated.

Michelle went on, encouraging people looking for love to master “the basics of finding somebody” who is right for you which includes “being honest about wanting to be with them, to date them seriously, to plan on making a commitment to date them, seeing where it goes, and then making it happen.”

“There’s work and practice that goes into [deciding,] ‘I’m going to get off the apps, and I’m going to actually ask this girl out, and I’m going to take her out for a few months. I’m going to invest in this other person,’” Michelle says “Because that’s what dating is. You can’t Tinder your way into a long-term relationship.”

“There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it’s like, you’ve got to know the feelings will be intense. But that doesn’t mean you quit, and these periods can last a long time. They can last years.”

Just recently, Michelle earned a lot of praise for her speech at the DNC. See the reactions here…
