In the special, Michelle talked about Americans feeling like they don’t have hope after Donald Trump winning the election.

“We feel the difference now. See, now, we are feeling what not having hope feels like,” she said. “Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept and Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was just a nice slogan to get votes. He and I and so many believe that — what else do you have if you don’t have hope? What do you give your kids if you can’t give them hope?”
