The Ellen Show got the interview nobody was clamoring for: the first sit-down with Michelle Obama since we got her out of the White House.
And in this hardly anticipated interview, Michelle told Ellen, “All we have is hope.”
Now, that’s odd.
A little over a year ago, Oprah snagged an interview nobody was clamoring for. She sat down with Michelle Obama just a month before we got her out of the White House.
And in that quickly forgotten interview, Michelle told Oprah, “We are feeling what not having hope feels like.”
So which is it, Michelle?
Is Hope all we have? Or are we living in a time of hopelessness?
For Pete’s sake, make up your mind.
See, this is the problem with interviewing someone who spits out meaningless bromides in an attempt to sound deep and thought-provoking.
Michelle Obama is a walking Inspiration-A-Day calendar.
Crack her open and a Chinese fortune comes out.
Back in December when Michelle declared Hope is dead, I wrote:
In her interview with Oprah Winfrey, Michelle declared an era of hopelessness has begun. Ironically enough, it coincides perfectly with she and Barack vacating the White House.
For Michelle and Barack, America’s sense of hope is directly tied to their own.
If they’re happy, we’re supposed to be happy. If they’re living the dream, we should be happy that they’re living the dream. Even if our lives are chaotic, stressful and completely up in the air.
And if they’re hopeless and distraught over Donald Trump winning, they assume the rest of the country is just as hopeless and distraught as they are.
No surprises there. The Obamas both think they are the center of the universe.
Michelle’s ridiculous claim is yet another reason why the Democrats lost in November. They really are completely out of touch with the American people.
Actually, in Michelle’s case, it’s probably more accurate to say “completely out of touch with reality.”
Now, a year later, Michelle has decided that Hope isn’t dead at all.
Apparently she resuscitated it with her man-breath.
She told Ellen:
“People are afraid. But then there are people who feel good about the direction of the country. So I mean, that’s what makes this country complicated because it’s made up of so many different people from different backgrounds.”
Now, I’m sure Ellen was too busy swooning to realize that this typical bit of Michelle Word Salad makes absolutely no sense.
Which is it, Michelle?
Are people afraid? Or do people feel good about the direction of the country?
Is Hope dead? Or is Hope all we have?
Given most surveys, Americans by a two-to-one majority are very happy with the direction of the country – especially our growing and booming economy.
But as is common with both Obamas, Michelle’s concern is only for the people who live their lives embracing Victimhood. Michelle thrives when others are miserable.
She went on spinning her word salad:
“The thing I learned in the eight years that I was in the White House is that what we do every day in our lives, the good things that we do every day – and we know we do it: we show empathy, we care for each other, you know, we do have a lot in common. That’s what it means to lead with hope and not fear.”
Seriously, this makes absolutely no sense.
Read that out loud. It’s even more confusing and vapid when you read it out loud.
So which is it, Michelle?
Are we a complicated country with “so many different people from different backgrounds?”
Or do we “have a lot in common?”
This is the trouble with not really believing a word that comes tumbling out of your mouth. You send up saying stuff that means nothing.
And empathy? Who is she kidding?
Let’s be honest. We endured Michelle Obama for eight years. In all that time, did you once think to yourself, “Golly, that Michelle has so much empathy?”
Yeah, neither did I.
In fact, it was a running theme in virtually every column I wrote about this self-centered woman.
“Lead with hope and not fear?”
Lead what exactly?
“Hope” is not a quality of leadership.
“Hope” is what people who feel powerless over their lives do.
It is not an action; but a feeling. It’s passive.
Passive leadership is not leadership at all.
[Which basically sums up all eight years of the Obama Presidency.]
So for the sake of the country, I certainly hope our leaders do more than “hope.”
And, thankfully, we do have a President who is more interested in action than sitting on his hands “hoping.”
But sprinkled over this word salad like a pungent dressing is Michelle Obama’s distaste not only for President Trump, but for the people who elected him.
It’s our fault, you see, that Michelle and her swooning sycophants feel unsafe.
What I find terrifically sad is that there are people out there who will watch this interview and think Michelle’s vapid, fatuous piffle is actually profound – not the least among them Ellen herself.
