“It’s just a shame that sometimes people will see me, and they will only see my color, and then they’ll make certain judgments about that,” she said. “That’s dangerous, for us to dehumanize each other in that way. We are all just people.”
It must be amazing to Michelle and her husband that while they were criticized for literally every single decision that they ever made while in office, from her bare arms to his tan suits, this current White House occupant, who creates a new scandal almost every single day, remains largely untouched.

President Obama was so careful and meticulous with the decisions that he made while in office, and still, he was pilloried by both the Right and the Left for essentially every move he made.
