Michelle Obama on Barack Being Called “Fine,” Raising Their Daughters & Watching Trash TV

Published on December 13, 2022

Former First Lady Michelle Obama talks about Barack thinking she watches too much low brow TV, there being some boring times in their house since the end of Barack’s presidency, decorating for Christmas and spending it in Hawaii, her first Christmas trip there to meet Barack’s family, taking Malia and Sasha to see Santa when they were younger, not being a big gift giving family, someone at a rally saying that Barack was “fine,” her new book “The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times,” her mom being an incredible force in her life, parenting tips and stories of raising her daughters, various “low points” as a parent, and Jimmy and Michelle exchange gifts for the holidays.

    Michelle is funny as heck. A natural storyteller, she is a riot. Not often do we witness class AND humility from the same person.

    I remember them coming to my former high school , Herbert Hoover Des Moines,Ia in the freezing cold.
    I had the opportunity to talk with Michelle in a private area while Barack was giving his speech.
    I thanked her for speaking with me and told her I knew how tired she must be traveling in this cold.
    I went back to the bleachers and discussed Barack with a former teachers assistant I had in grade school back in the late 1960s who was a person of color in a predominantly white school and neighborhood.
    I told him that Michelle was a really down to earth woman and I felt that she really listened to what I had to say.

    I‘m from Germany and I always loved the Obama’s!!! I own their books (to be honest, I only finished hers… 😉). I always admired their style, their class, their humour – I wish they would come to Germany and become our first family!
