Recently the former first daughters, Malia and Sasha Obama, have been in the news a lot for their bad behavior so it is ironic that Michelle Obama recently chose to use President Donald Trump’s parenting style in a negative way. Malia Obama has been in the headlines a lot lately and some are speculating if Michelle is trying to save face and her reputation of being a perfect parent after Malia’s hard-partying ways during her “gap year” before college and now in college, have more than caught up with her.
The eldest Obama darling has been seen drunk at concerts, accused of smoking marijuana in an incriminating photo where that appeared to be the case, and even cursed out star-struck fans who crossed her path and wanted a photo with her.
All of these incidents and more have resulted in a massive dose of bad publicity for the teen who doesn’t like all the negative attention she’s getting. Now, Michelle has come out saying she warned her little girl and she didn’t listen, now she’s going to be affected for the rest of her life. However, Michelle should take some of the responsibility for her daughter’s bad decisions.
Malia recently was first spotted making out with her new boyfriend while they were both at the Harvard-Yale football game and since then she has been spotted making questionable choices.
Watching Malia spiral out of control while doing it all publically has made her parents question whether or not she listened to the important advice that they gave her. Michelle told her daughter that she needs to be careful with what she chooses to do and to never end up on Page Six. It didn’t take long for Malia to go against her mother’s wishes by ending up in on the gossip column.
Maybe Michelle is trying to deflect from her parenting and the rebellious actions of her own children by slamming the president’s parenting style.
According to Hollywood Life, The former First Lady threw some presidential-level shade at Donald Trump. Michelle Obama said the current POTUS is acting like a negligent parent who’s letting their wild kids run wild!
“I think what we see is what happens when we take things for granted,” former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama, 54, said while speaking at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston on April 5, per PEOPLE. While talking about a wide range of topics, she threw a little shade towards President Donald Trump, 71.
”For the eight years Barack [Obama, 56] was president, it was like having the ‘good parent’ at home. The responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time. And now we have the other parent. We thought it’d feel fun, maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day and stay up late, and not follow the rules.”
To be fair, out of all the things that people have said about Donald Trump, saying he’s the “bad parent” is pretty tame. It’s also putting it mildly. The Trump administration is “in an unethical league of its own,” according to the Washington Post.
With EPA head Scott Pruitt flying first class, Ben Carson using the Department of Housing and Urban Development to spend $31,000 for a dining set, and former Department of Veterans Affair secretary David Shulkin spending $122,334 for him and his wife to take what looked like a pleasure trip to Europe, the “kids” are not “staying up late” and eating candy. They’re stealing mom’s purse, getting wild in the streets and probably think they don’t deserve to get punished.
Can America get the good parent now? The country is clearly ready for someone better. His approval rating hit a record low in March, according to The Hill, as a Morning Consult’s 50-state approval tracker showed 41% of registered voters approved of Trump. 54% people disapproved of the president’s job so far.
Of course, America had a chance to have a president who wasn’t a hot mess. “The best-qualified candidate in this last race was a woman,” Michelle Obama said, bringing up Hillary Clinton. “And she wasn’t perfect, but she was way more perfect than many of the alternatives.” So, who would Child Protective Services be in this metaphor?
It isn’t Michelle. She once again shot down any idea of her running for office, per NBC Boston. “You have to want the job. And you can’t just say, ‘you’re a woman, run.’ We just can’t find the women we like and ask them to do it because there are millions of women who are inclined and do have the passion for politics … Just because I gave a good speech, I’m smart and intelligent doesn’t mean I should be the next president … That’s been our problem. We’re very shortsighted about how we think about selecting the commander-in-chief.”
The former First Lady needs to realize that Trump didn’t only do a good job raising successful, accomplished children, but he fixed her husband’s mess he made of the country in one year.
Barack Obama couldn’t accomplish anything that Trump has done in 8 years. The only thing Trump is “staying up late” for is, to work hard for America around the clock.
