Michelle Obama Talks "Standard Of Ethics" & Lack Of Diversity In Politics With Shonda Rhimes

During the girl power chat, the former FLOTUS discussed female empowerment and the "standards of ethics" used in the White House. Related: Barack Obama Admits He Shed Tears After Dropping Malia Off At Harvard The lawyer reflected on her family's time in charge -- and the differences facing our country now, joking: "For the last eight years, we had a standard of ethics, a lot of constraints. What it means to have a commander-in-chief that actually upholds the standards of the White House..." She went on to encourage women to "speak up" and demand a seat at the table, which is dominated by white men: "Don't waste your seat at the table and if you're scared to use your voice, then give up your seat to someone who can use it because we can't afford to waste that opportunity. I want women to pay attention, because this is what happens when we don't stand up. We give our seats up to those who are supposed to be there, because of the stereotypes of what power and success is supposed to be." The activist added: "I've been at so many tables and met so many fools who are imposters, but shame on us if we just let an imposter put us down. When you know what's right and you don't say anything, you see wrong happening and you sit quietly, that's what I want women to challenge to be, to speak up. We don't get to the right answers without raising our voices." On the subject of children, Michelle hasn't lost hope for our future generation: "I think they're more open in ways and less tolerant of obvious inequities. This generation will look at what is happening now in the world and say, ‘This doesn't feel right,' because they know what they were taught. They've been raised with an openness. Many kids today only know that Barack Obama was their president. They grew up only under hope and opportunity. I think now they will be less tolerant and feel some of what is happening now as what they intrinsically know is not what they were taught. The thing we cannot forget is that children know when people don't believe in them or they're not being invested in. Kids know when things are different for them, when they are being quieted or being treated fairly. It's sort of a shame on us adults when we treat kids like they don't know." As for the importance of diversity in Congress, Obama told Rimes: "Usually at the State of the Union address, what you see is this real dichotomy. On one side of the room it's a feeling of color. On one side of the room it's gray and white. On the other side of the room there's yellows and blues and greens. One side, all men, all white. On the other side, some women and people of color. Whenever I was sitting…I looked at that and thought ‘No wonder people don't trust politics. We're not even noticing what these rooms look like.'" Preach! After the inspiring chat, a recorded message from Barack popped up on the screen for him to tell his bride on their special day: "Your strength, grace, determination honesty, and the fact that you look so good doing all of this, it's remarkable. It's no wonder that as people got to know you as I got to know you, that they fell in love. It's truly the best decision I ever made to be persistent enough to ask you out on a date that you finally gave in and I hope you feel the same way." Feels!!! [Image via W.Wade/WENN.].....»»

Michelle wrote a message to the followers of Obama.org that day as well. “Today is Barack‘s birthday, and this year, I want to do something a little different for him. I don’t have a card for you to sign. Instead, I have something that I know would mean even more to Barack than your well-wishes (and that’s saying something): I’m asking you to share with Barack, right now, how you’re stepping up to be a better citizen in your community. I’m asking you to share your own ‘daily act of citizenship,’” she wrote. “This work — these personal, local, daily acts of citizenship — is what the Obama Foundation is all about.

Michelle Obama Opens Up About Facing Racism Even After Being First Lady

Michelle Obama says there are still people who can't — or won't, rather — see past her skin color.

While speaking at the Women's Foundation of Colorado's 30th anniversary celebration, the former FLOTUS opened up about the obstacles she had to face, and still faces, as the first black woman in her position. Related: Michelle Calls Out THIS Double Standard From When She Was First Lady! Barack Obama's wife told WFCO President and CEO Lauren Casteel: "The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut. Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won't see me for what I am because of my skin color." Adding: "Women, we endure those cuts in so many ways that we don't even notice we're cut. We are living with small tiny cuts, and we are bleeding every single day. And we're still getting up." Before we get too emotional... we'll just take this moment to say, WE MISS YOU. While Michelle said she won't pursue public office (WAH!), she will dedicate her life to helping people in other ways: "Public service and engagement will be a part of my life and my husband's life forever." The classy lawyer stayed away from getting too political, but encouraged the audience remain faithful in the people of this country despite the current President's reckless actions. She asserted: "The people in this country are universally good and kind and honest and decent. Don't be afraid of the country you live in. The folks here are good." Love you......»»

Michelle Obama Reminds Women Who Voted For Donald Trump That They Voted "Against Their Own Voice"

As you may know, 53% of white women voted for Donald Trump while 94% of black women and 68% of Hispanic or Latino female voters picked Hillary Clinton, according to the New York Times. On Wednesday, Michelle Obama spoke at the Inbound 2017 conference in Boston, where she reiterated her message that a woman's vote for Trump was a vote "against their own voice." Related: Barack Obama Admits He Shed Tears After Dropping Malia Off At Harvard In an interview with Roxane Gay, the former First Lady said: "Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice. What does it mean for us as women that we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, that guy, he's better for me, his voice is more true to me. Well, to me that just says you don't like your voice. You like the thing you're told to like." How anyone, especially a woman, could cast their vote for Donald Trump -- even after hearing the Access Hollywood tapes -- is truly baffling. But despite her disapproval of the person Trump is, Obama still hopes he's successful as President: "We want the sitting President to be successful because we live in this country. He is our commander in chief, he was voted in. It is very difficult to lead when you have a peanut gallery of people who don't know what they're talking about second-guessing what you do. When you've been in that position, you see that most formers do take a step back, they do let the current holder of the office lead. You do step up when you're asked, and you do try to make sure what you say is constructive. Now, like I said, there was a whole party that didn't do that for my husband, a whole political party that did not, but what we've learned is part of our legacy is leading with grace." Michelle is the definition of grace, if you ask us!.....»»

This week, the First Daughter stood by the White House's decision to halt an Obama-era policy that allows the government to track pay discrimination based on gender, race, and ethnicity. Trevor Noah echoed many who were disappointed with Ivanka for treating equal pay "the way Rose treated Jack [in Titanic], I'll never let go, pay equality… OK, bye-bye." Photo: Ivanka Fails To Notice Trump Shade In Child Fan Mail! But the Comedy Central show's resident Ivanka expert isn't surprised one bit -- because despite what we like to believe, Vank is just as crooked as the rest of the Trump family! Wolf explained that the businesswoman is "playing both sides" -- publicly opposing Donald Trump's controversial initiatives but doing nothing to stop them -- and, unlike her brothers, gets away with it because she doesn't look like your average Trump sleaze-ball. Now it all makes sense! Watch the video (below) for Wolf's trick on how not to be duped by the First Daughter in the future. The Daily Show with Trevor Noah [Image via Comedy Central/WENN.].....»»

On Wednesday, the Boy Scouts of America announced the decision to welcome girls into some of its initiatives for the first time since its inception over 100 years ago! Before all of you conservatives implode, the organization isn't mixing girls with the boys -- they are creating opportunities for girls to complete the same curriculum as the boys, including the ability to earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout. Related: Boy Scouts of America Executive Apologizes After Trump Speech! Starting next year, young girls can join single-gender Cub Scout units, known as dens. Local scouting organizations can choose to have dens for girls and dens for boys. And then in 2019, a separate Eagle Scout program will be available for older girls. This all comes after two nationwide surveys where parents expressed high interest in getting their daughters signed up for both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. BSA chief executive Michael Surbaugh said in a statement: "This decision is true to the BSA's mission and core values outlined in the Scout Oath and Law. The values of Scouting – trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind, brave and reverent, for example – are important for both young men and women. We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children. We strive to bring what our organization does best – developing character and leadership for young people – to as many families and youth as possible as we help shape the next generation of leaders." Let's just all take a moment to enjoy this delightful news before Donald Trump gets wind of it on Fox & Friends. You can read the full announcement HERE!.....»»

But last month, the former president shed actual tears -- no, not for the crumbling country he left in the hands of an egotistical madman -- he choked up while dropping Malia Obama off at college! Related: George Clooney Is Praying For One Nation Under Trump Our former POTUS recently revealed he broke down when he and Michelle Obama moved their 19-year-old daughter into her dorm at Harvard University in August. Speaking at the Beau Biden Foundation‘s golf and tennis invitational at Delaware's Wilmington Country Club on Sunday, the 56-year-old confessed: "For those of us who have daughters, it just happens fast. I dropped off Malia at college, and I was saying to Joe and Jill [Biden] that it was a little bit like open-heart surgery." A bit dramatic there, 44! Barack explained how he tried to control his emotions on Malia's big day, but the waterworks came as soon as he said goodbye to his eldest daughter: "I was proud that I did not cry in front of her. But on the way back, the Secret Service was off, looking straight ahead, pretending they weren't hearing me as I sniffled and blew my nose. It was rough." Happens to the best of us! (Except Donald Trump, who probably teared up when dropping off his kids at UPenn only because of the hefty donation he had to make.) Last June, Malia graduated from D.C.'s private Sidwell Friends School, and decided to take a gap year before starting at Harvard. At the invitational, Barack said that his daughter's painful Ivy League send off was "a reminder that, at the end of our lives, whatever else we've accomplished, the things that we'll remember are the joys that our children – and hopefully way later, our grandchildren – bring us."
