When you break a glass ceiling – which is exactly what Michelle Obama did – there’s a good chance that you may feel a cut or two. The ones that hurt the deepest depend on the person. For the first black First Lady, it was the comments that were based on racial hatred.
There’s been a lot of controversy over the past few days about how much former President Barack Obama gets paid. Now, he and Michelle are giving some of that money away.
I can probably count on my two hands how many times I’ve seen my mother’s hair outside of its headwrap. For modesty’s sake, she has religiously worn the garment almost every day for as long as I have been alive. To my mother, hair is an intimate experience, to be let down only in intimately personal moments–and she has always had far, far too few of those in a world that demands she give all her energy simply to survive.
As part of her campaign to help fight childhood obesity, Michelle Obama introduced the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act during the 2012-2013 school-year. Under this program, school lunches became healthier by replacing high sodium and otherwise unhealthy foods with fruits and other options.
Many students wondered what happened to their favorite snacks and GOP lawmakers were infuriated at what they considered government over-involvement. With a new administration in the White House, they’re looking to force Obama’s system out and re-establish the old guard.

Who said anything about that stopping now?

To say that the language coming out of the Donald Trump campaign this election season has been obscene, racist, and sexist is an understatement. It has reached every depth of disgusting that political language could possibly reach (*cough* “p-ssy grab” *cough*). Even Trump’s surrogates have taken up the language of their leader.
Carl Paladino, President-elect Trump’s New York co-chair and ex-Republican candidate for NY Governor, recently suggested Michelle Obama was actually a man who should live in Africa with gorillas and that he would like President Obama to die of mad cow disease after Valerie Jarrett dies of decapitation.
I’m not making this up.
In less than a month, the Obama family will be out of the White House and moving on to the next chapters of their lives. While many of will surely miss the presence of President Obama, some of us will miss the First Lady even more.
Last night, Michelle Obama sat down for an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey about her time as First Lady, the future of the White House and even if she’d consider going into politics herself, according to USA Today.
