ICYMI, I thought this was hilarious at the time …
President Donald Trump has broken former first lady Michelle Obama as she has admitted that he has her in depression.
The wife of former President Obama that she is “dealing with some form of low-grade depression: due to the pandemic, racial strife — and the “hypocrisy” of President Trump’s administration, The Daily Mail reported.
The former first lady made the admission on her “Michelle Obama” podcast that airs on the Spotify network.
She said she has “emotional highs and lows,” and said that it is “exhausting” and “dispiriting” to see how President Trump responds to “yet another story” of a black person being killed.
Her husband served two terms as President of the United States and did not do anything to stop black-on-black murders, but she is furious at President Trump.
“Spiritually, these are not fulfilling times,” she said in the all-new episode of her podcast.
She claims that she is fighting some form of depression “not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.
“I don’t think I’m unusual, in that,” she said. “But I’d be remiss to say that part of this depression is also a result of what we’re seeing in terms of the protests, the continued racial unrest, that has plagued this country since its birth.”
Remember this is the woman who said she was not proud of the United States and of being an American until her husband was elected president.
“I have to say that waking up to the news, waking up to how this administration has or has not responded, waking up to yet another story of a Black man or a Black person somehow being dehumanized, or hurt or killed, or falsely accused of something, it is exhausting.
“And it has led to a weight that I haven’t felt in my life, in a while,” the 56-year-old Obama said.
But she said that he “spirit is lifted” when she is feeling healthy and is surrounded by her family and friends.
“I reach out to my family, and to my friends, even in this time of quarantine. You know, I fought to continue to find a way to stay connected to the people in my life who bring me joy, and my girlfriends, my husband, my kids,” she said.
“I’m waking up in the middle of the night, ’cause I’m worrying about something or there’s a heaviness,” the former first lady said.
“I try to make sure I get a workout in, although there have been periods throughout this quarantine, where I just have felt too low.
“You know, I’ve gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don’t feel yourself, and sometimes there’s been a week or so where I had to surrender to that, and not be so hard on myself. And say, ‘You know what? You’re just not feeling that treadmill right now,’” she said.
“You have to recognize that you’re in a place, a bad place, in order to get out of it. So you kinda have to sit in it for a minute, to know, oh, oh, I’m feeling off. So now I gotta, I gotta feed myself with something better,” she said.
