But how is Michelle coping?

Posted on Updated on


The world wonders, not about how terrorism is threatening almost every country across the globe, not about the high level of poverty right here in our own country, not about the record number of people on food stamps, or the stagnant economy.  The world wonders how Michelle is coping.

Layla Al-Ani a widow living in Muatassam, Iraq, where women are treated as property and sharia law rules the day, recently spoke out, with approval from her uncle, about her incarceration and torture.

“I know that as bad as things are, Michelle is really the one suffering”, said Layla.  “Her strength in overcoming this thing they call micro-aggression is inspiring.  It will provide me much needed encouragement to know that while receiving my 100 lashes for being raped, my petty troubles are nothing compared to Michelle’s life in a  house that slaves helped to build.”

The struggle for independence is an iconic theme that permeates the fabric of the United States of America.  That struggle continues with little appreciation given to the greatest struggles known, those endured by the current first lady.  We never fully appreciated how difficult it is to be Michelle.  Having to keep up the brave face as she’s  forced to travel to exotic locations and eat in the finest restaurants.  And the clothing she’s made to wear, don’t get us started on that barbaric expectation.  It’s particularly telling when she’s overheard saying

” #@%& Barry, maybe I don’t want to spend another $10 million on vacations this year.  Can’t I just spend that on my own island like everyone else?”  

No wonder Michelle comes across as entitled, like the country owes her more than she’s given to it.  Let’s all begin to appreciate her oppression and persecution.  Perhaps one day we’ll understand what we owe Michelle and she can at last be proud of this country.
