Michelle Obama and her mother on adjusting to life at White House

  • Published on Nov 14, 2018

In their first national TV interview together, Gayle King also spoke with Marian Robinson, Obama’s mother, about her eight years in the White House.

    You don’t save the world by being a politician in AmeriKKKa. That statement alone should wake people up. You don’t get funding from Goldman Sachs and the like, then pretend you’re for income inequality. Obama killed Gaddafi because he was trying to unite Africa to reject the debt slavery of the globalist bankers and keep their own resources. Africa is the richest “poor” continent on the planet and Obama didn’t help them at all. He was just a puppet chosen to keep the world confused and advance the elite globalist agenda. That is why he gave $38,000,000 to “Israel” and did more drone strikes (murders) than Bush, while getting the Nobel Peace Prize. Why are people so gullible? And where was Obama on the CDC whistle blower, which is still covered up? Notice all these “presidents” support Israel! Watch Birth of a Nation and Woodrow Wilson and you’ll see a that colonialism hasn’t gone away. The Birth of a Nation (Israel). Then look up the dancing Israelis on 9/11, watch General Wesley Clark. The watch war is racket, Gen. Smedley Butler.

    I miss the class that the Obama’s brought to the American people. Mostly I miss the piece of mind for eight years I had knowing that our country was safe, really all of us slept better when Obama was our president, lol, I miss my piece of mind, now I’m just being selfish. Thank you for your kindness, your families sacrifice so that all of could sleep better.

    Michelle is not the wife, she's a beard. Give it a break. She knows he's with men more than with her. I worked with them while in Whitehouse. This interview is compulsive lies. Sad. Can't get elected as a gay Muslim. Needs his beard.

    For the first time I believe Barack and Michelle were married and that's a good thing. Michelle is very honest and I like that about her. This is a very interesting video about Obama and her marriage.I used to think they were never really married and that he was gay but this video interview with Michelle is enlightening. Barack was such a strange guy that I couldn't understand if he was really married and had these 2 daughters. Michelle's mother played a good part into making me realize Barack was just strange.

    The most gracious interview with Michelle Obama and her Mom is that you can tell where Michelle gets her can do and positive attitude from! I loved, loved, loved how her mom said I want to be like "Michelle Obama when I grow up!" And Michelle responded "Oh, Momma!" That is true love between mother and daughter! This is why Michelle was so loved! Because the foundation was lay by her mother! I enjoy everything I see and hear about Michelle Obama! Michelle Mother is one class act!

    "It was hard to be driven to school in armed vehicles with armed guards" Tell this to the kids in Chicago who's being killed. They'd do anything to have arm guards in their schools and neighborhoods. But they're not so lucky.

    The biggest frauds ever pulled on the American people. Joan Rivers told the truth just prior to her mysterious death during a routine outpatient procedure. I have never heard someone so privileged play the victim so much. Ask the mother how much she was paid at tax payers expense. It must have been such a hardship living in a beautiful mansion and flying around the world on the tax payers dime. Please stop insulting our intelligence. iamamalaysian.com/2018/07/26/malia-and-sasha-obama-were-loaned-by-their-real-parents-so-america-would-accept-the-fake-first-family/

    She reminds me of Sigourney Weaver when she was younger. Big, slim, well-trained. Even when she (Susan Alexandra Weaver) took on the male stage name Sigourney, nobody said: This is a man!
    So why this hatred? And the insinuation Michelle Obama would be a man? Why?
    ....oh I know it,...she is black!...she is highly intelligent!...handsome!..and has personality.
    Something that must not occur in the world view of racists, woman-haters.
    Now these people worship a "gold digger" who slept her way up.
