Michelle Obama: Having A Commander In Chief Who Respects The Office Now Means Something Different

Former First Lady Michelle Obama spoke about her husband’s presidency and Donald Trump’s presidency at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women on Tuesday.

Interviewed by TV producer Shonda Rhimes, Obama spoke about a “standard of ethics” under her husband’s administration and how it feels like “things are pretty wide open” now. Obama also recalled what it meant to have a commander in chief “who upholds and respects the office” of the presidency.

On attending the State of the Union address and how ‘gray and white’ the Republican side is:

It’s a feeling of color, almost. On one side of the room, it’s literally gray and white, literally, that’s the color palette on one side of the room. On the other side of the room, there’s yellows and blues and whites and greens, physically there’s a difference in color in the tone. Because one side, all men, all white. On the other side, some women, some people of color. And I look at that and I go, no wonder. No wonder we struggle. No wonder we don’t trust politics. But it’s not just politics.

On ethics, being a commander in chief:

It feels like things are pretty wide open. For the last eight years, because we sort of had a standard of ethics, and there were things that we wouldn’t do, you know, so there were a lot of constraints.

There was a certain expectation, so there was a lot we couldn’t do and we didn’t do because of our respect for the position and what it means to the country to actually have a commander in chief who upholds and respects the office. So definitely, life is freer now.
