Michelle Obama Takes Swipe at Trump’s Inauguration: ‘There Weren’t That Many People There, We Saw It, by the Way’

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has broken her silence on what it was like watching President Donald Trump take the oath of office during his inauguration.

She said the combination of watching Trump take over and leaving the White House after 8 years left her sobbing after she was out of the public eye.

Obama also took a swipe at Trump and the size of his inauguration crowd.

She said: “That day was so emotional for so many different reasons.

“We were leaving the home we had been in for eight years, the only home our kids really knew.

“They remembered Chicago but they had spent more time in the White House than anywhere.

“So we were saying goodbye to the staff and all the people who helped to raise them.”

“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,” she said of Trump’s inauguration.

“There was no reflection of the broader sense of America.

“Many people took pictures of me and they’re like, ‘You weren’t in a good mood?’

“No, I was not. But you had to hold it together like you do for eight years.”

Next, Michelle took her swipe at Trump.

She said of leaving the White House for the last time.
