Back in the days of Laura Bush, the position of first lady was one that was epitomized by class and elegance. Sadly, those days are long gone…
Throughout her time as first lady, Michelle Obama has made a fool out of both herself and our country by doing unfunny comedy bits on sites like Funny or Die and participating in Carpool Karaoke. In the September issue of Vogue, for which Michelle is appearing on the cover, she discussed her transition from “White House supporting player to media star.”
“What I have never been afraid of is to be a little silly, and you can engage people that way,” Michelle said, according to USA Today. “My view is, first you get them to laugh, then you get them to listen. So I’m always game for a good joke.”
Of course, Michelle couldn’t resist taking this opportunity to race-bait once again.
“When I come across many little black girls who come up to me over the course of these 7 1/2 years with tears in their eyes, and they say: ‘Thank you for being a role model for me. I don’t see educated black women on TV, and the fact that you’re first lady validates who I am,'” she said.
Finally, Michelle hinted that after her time as first lady, she plans to launch a possible career in television.
“For so many people, television and movies may be the only way they understand people who aren’t like them,” she said. “There are folks who now know black families — like the Johnsons on Black-ish or the folks on Modern Family. They become part of who you are. You share their pains. You understand their fears. They make you laugh, and they change how you see the world. And that is particularly true in a country where there are still millions of people who live in communities where they can live their whole lives not having contact or exposure with people who aren’t like them, whether that is race or religion or simply lifestyle. The only way that millions of people get to know other folks and the way they live … is through the power of television and movies.”
