  • Michelle Obama, former US first lady, has said the US electorate’s decision to elect Donald Trump as president following Barack Obama's term in office "still hurts".

    Speaking to BBC Breakfast, she said: "That's that point in time when you have to ask yourself, was it worth it?"

    "Did we make a dent? Did it matter? And when I'm in my darkest moment, my most irrational place, I could say, well, maybe not. Maybe we weren't good enough.”

    However, the former first lady said that seeing “more rationally”, she was able to think about “a whole world of young people who are thinking differently about themselves because of the work that we've done”.

    Mrs Obama has revealed in her new book The Light We Carry that she struggles with negative thoughts about her appearance and her “fearful mind”, but that women need to “learn to love ourselves as we are”.

    ❤❤❤ to Michelle Obama. She definitely leads by example. A shining star.

    Mike M says:

    She/He doesn’t lead anything. She is just a nasty hoe.

    Felix Smith says:

    No matter who you areeee, shining bright to see what you can truly be

    Having lived on three continents in very different cultures I appreciate many leaders. But it was a privilege to vote for President Obama and to have Michelle Obama as America’s first Lady. As a female, I can’t express how that fed my soul. After the shock of the Trump win win term restrictions prevented President Obama from running for a third term I had seen a political cartoon which simply showed the President and Mrs Obama departing the White House and turning off the lights like one would turn off the lights to one’s own home and that image has stayed with me ever since. The divisiveness of those four years so difficult to live through and knowingly the power that that fraudster carries with some of his party is worrisome for the upcoming election. I truly appreciate all the president and Mrs Obama did during their tenure I look forward to great things from the Obama Foundation.

    Raoul Duke says:

    I’m sure I speak for many people here when I say that I would have voted for Obama for a third term, if I could – as I was telling my daughter’s new boyfriend just the other day at our garden party. Best president in my lifetime, hands down.

    Dave A says:

    I AM AN AMERICAN, BORN AND RAISED, AND I AM PROUD TO HAVE VOTED FOR THE GREAT PRESIDENT OBAMA IN 2 ELECTIONS!

    b.visconti says:

    More and more people feel like they don’t matter..you hit the nail on the head! Being a senior your only important at voting time 😁😘

    Yvonne Plant says:

    Most people don’t matter and never have. It’s the truth..

    Brett pilkington says:

    How was Obama a crook? Trump was put to impeachment proceedings TWICE in one term.

    Peter Knippel says:

    Looks like you slept through Trump.

    J C says:

    @LMB lol you think trump got rich being a politician? You’re braindead

    Fitwi Eritrawi says:

    Genuine woman with a golden personality ❤️ you are a true teacher and a role model. BBC you have put a very unfitting title for this interview. To place the trump name alongside that of Michel is like inviting people to eat a beautiful cake in the toilet. No sane person puts the delicious with the obnoxious.

    Marvigli says:

    Ms Obama is Usa national treasure, very intelligent & compassionate, a bright example for new generations.

    LMB says:

    Born of Italian parents, in England (GB) raised in both countries and working my last (hopefully the next 8 years too?) in Germany … the only President I would like to shake hands with? Barack Obama. 🙏🏼

    MommaB🌻 says:

    I miss the Obamas so much and pray for the day to feel safe again as I did when Barack was my president

    Loida Cordoba says:

    Smart, kind, emphathetic, insightful… that’s who Michelle Obama is. Lucky are those whose lives she’s touched

    Andrew Mutie Mulandi says:

    Woman of Respect, woman ahead of her time.

    May Almighty God, Continue To Bless The Obama Family And May God, Continue To Bless America.

    President Obama was one of the very best !! Great video and a pleasure to watch this intelligent video with the former First Lady !!

    analogdistortion says:

    Weren’t his unmanned drone attacks the best?! Personally I loved him the most for his legislation to attack US citizens on foreign soil.

    akparadise says:

    I’m sorry I didn’t stop to say none of his presidency wouldn’t have happened without your love and support. You are a beautiful person and I was proud to call you our first lady. Thank you Michelle.

    Abia Saloise says:

    wow, this woman is so brilliant , thoughtful and well spoken. Inspirational Ms Obama!

    Sundar singh says:

    I was in the States during both of the US elections which elected Obamas as the president, a sense of pride could be felt at those moments even if I am not a citizen of the United States of America. You really, both of you, inspired millions of middle class people, people who have difficulty to make ends meet. A Nepalese citizen is proud of you.

    Patsy Self says:

    Such a Beautiful, Intelligent Compassionate First Lady. Thankful for this Lady.
