Former First Lady Michelle Obama says she suffered from “uncontrollable sobbing” after President Donald Trump was elected in 2017.
In a podcast, Mrs. Obama revealed her true inner feelings during the moments of Trump’s inauguration in Washington, D.C.
“When those doors shut, I cried for 30 minutes straight, uncontrollable sobbing, because that’s how much we were holding it together for eight years,” Obama said. This was Mrs. Obama’s last trip aboard Air Force One as Trump took over power.

“There were tears, there was that emotion. But then to sit on that stage and watch the opposite of what we represented on display – there was no diversity, there was no color on that stage, there was no reflection of the broader sense of America,” Obama said.
In public, Mrs. Obama appeared stoic and emotionless on January 20, 2017. She stood with her husband alongside Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.
Inside, it’s apparent that Michelle was having a meltdown, similar to many other far-left Democrats.

Michelle Obama broke down shortly after leaving then-President Donald Trump’s inauguration, the former first lady candidly shared in a new podcast, as the emotions of leaving their family’s home after eight years and resentment over Trump taking office overwhelmed her.
Mrs. Obama added a racial tinge to her remarks, bemoaning what she called a “lack of diversity” among the incoming members of the Trump administration, expressing dismay that so many of them were white:
Notably, Mrs. Obama shared smiles and laughs onstage with former President George W. Bush — the man whom she and her husband had demonized for several years as they campaigned for “hope and change.”
Michelle Obama famously declared, “When they go low, we go high,” claiming moral superiority over Trump.
