Last Friday a portion of an interview with Michelle Obama was released in which she proclaimed the end of hope, the difference between the current White House occupier and the President-elect. There’s a stark difference, but she’s got things turned around a little bit. That’s a point that Mr. Trump made during a rally in Mobile, AL, on Saturday, Mr. Trump addressed her comments towards the end of his hour-long address in which he laid out plans for his presidency and making America great again.
He referenced the portion of the interview that has been released in which Obama tells Winfrey, “Now we’re feeling what not having hope feels like.” Her blindness to reality including the declaration that her husband gave Americans hope, when he took everything else away. He had to leaves us with hope the American people would have become an unruly mob of 330 million people. Obama isn’t stupid.
Mr. Trump adopted a softer tone in his rebuttal than his normal biting response, saying, “Michelle Obama said yesterday that there’s no hope.” The crowd broke into a chorus of boos at the mention of her name. He disagreed with her positions, saying, “we have tremendous hope and we have tremendous promise and we have tremendous potential.”
He cited his post-election visit to the White House, when he and his wife Melania met privately with the Obamas. “She could not have been nicer.” Giving her the benefit of the doubt based upon that meeting, Mr. Trump said her comments might have been misconstrued and that she did not mean people feel hopeless because he will soon be president.
“I assume she was talking about the past, not the future,” he said. The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment but she does tend to put her foot in her mouth once in a while.
