Michelle Obama showed up on the “Tonight Show” last night, and she wasted no time trashing First Lady Melania Trump. The attack came after Jimmy Fallon showed Michelle a photo of the Obamas on the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Fallon asks, “Can you just walk me through this?” And that’s when the former first lady starts laughing as she trashes Melania. Well, that smile gets ripped off her face. Don’t miss this.
Michelle Obama’s apparent jealousy of Melania Trump drove her to act like a woman scorned on the Tonight Show. The 54-year-old former first lady feels the need to make snide and hurtful remarks about the current first lady. It reeks of desperation and proves Michelle goes low all the time.
Michelle was supposed to be promoting her new book, Becoming, but of course, after a few minutes, the conversation turns to the Trumps. This isn’t by accident. Someone like Michelle Obama makes it clear ahead of time what topics she wishes to discuss.
So when the anti-Trump, late night talk show host held up a photo of Michelle and Barack leaving the White House, Fallon asks Mrs. Obama what her thoughts were on leaving what most people would consider the most prestigious job in America.
“This is you, this is—uh—after the Trump inauguration. This is you, waving from Air Force One. Can you—uh—just take me through?” Fallon asked.
Michelle immediately interrupts. She had memorized this part. This is where she makes a joke and gets the audience to laugh at the Trumps. Looking out at the audience with her trademark sneer, she says, “BYE FELICIA!”
Fallon collapsed with laughter, and the leftist audience whooped with joy. In case you don’t know, the phrase “Bye Felicia” is a derogatory one made famous by the rapper Ice Cube. But that’s not all. Michelle was just getting warmed up.
After Fallon stopped faking an uncontrollable laugh, he asked: “Is that what was going through your mind?” Michelle responded, “Uh—a lot was going on that day—that was the day.”
This is where Michelle makes sure she can work in a smear directed right at Melania. The former first lady started to relate the story about the night before Trump’s inauguration. It was the Obamas’ last night in the White House.
Michelle explained that her daughters wanted a sleepover that night, saying, “Are you kidding me?” Michelle continued relaying her story as if she was talking about toddlers instead of a college-bound daughter and a high school junior. “You gotta take all of your stuff, the blankies, the bears—all of the stuff,” she said.
And that little story is how she works in a way to trash our beloved first lady, once again. Michelle continued, “So it was that, and then there was
Except, the audience doesn’t get it. They didn’t know Michelle is talking about the lovely silver picture frame Melania gave to the outgoing first lady which was in the Tiffany box. Her embarrassing attempt to get a laugh out of the audience fell flat, and now she is getting that smug smile ripped off her face.
People are not amused at Michelle Obama using her role as the former first lady to trash the current one who is so classy and gracious. Piers Morgan, the popular British journalist, devoted an entire article to Michelle’s stunt last night.
Morgan titled his piece in the Daily Mail, “Stop it Michelle, for someone who hates ‘going low’ your bitchy sniping at Melania just to sell books is a cheap, tacky shot.”
“Appearing on last night’s Jimmy Fallon show, Michelle inexplicably decided to plunge the bitchy knife firmly into the back of her successor as First Lady, Melania Trump,” wrote Morgan. “What I find far harder to admire is Michelle Obama’s decision to now publicly mock, denigrate and ridicule her successor.”
Americans also had enough of Michelle Obama’s mean girl tactics. “American Woman” on Twitter posted, “Michelle Obama still blathering on about herself on late night talk shows, saying how awkward the Tiffany box (gift) was from our FLOTUS, Melania at the Inauguration. Who is glad we now have a kind, grateful and beautiful FLOTUS who loves our country? #ByeMichelle.”
There are thousands of posts all over social media blasting Michelle Obama and her latest hate-fest against Melania Trump. And why does the former first lady feel the need to bash her successor?
It quite simple. Michelle Obama is jealous. And she just can’t help herself. She sees Melania’s beauty, grace, and class, and deep down she knows she can’t compare. But that is no reason to use her own notoriety to score cheap points against the first lady. Now, this little bash-fest on the Tonight Show will haunt Michelle for some time to come.
