Since leaving the White House, it seems as though Michelle Obama has been on a mission to deliberately say whatever pops into her head, no matter how offensive or incorrect.
According to Fox News, Obama believes that a significant societal problem is how men are being raised. She rhetorically asked, “Are we protecting our men too much so they feel a little entitled and…self-righteous sometimes?”

This disturbing statement was made at the Obama Foundation International Summit in Chicago, a forum where these types of observations can be shared with the world.
The latest observation from Mrs. Obama is that “the problem in the world today is we love our boys, and we raise our girls. We raise them to be strong, and sometimes we take care not to hurt men – and I think we pay for that a little bit.”
Even more baffling than the statement that men are self-righteous and entitled is that Mrs. Obama believes women are to blame. She bashed women for the times they “nurture men and push girls to be perfect.”
She jokingly provided her solution to the issue, that men should get together and talk out their gender-based issues. “Y’all should get you some friends and talk to each other, because that’s the other thing [women] do — we straighten each other out on some things, our girlfriends… ya’ll need to go talk to each other about your stuff. Because there’s so much of it. It’s so messy. Just talk about why ya’ll the way you are.”
This statement, that men are self-righteous and entitled, comes on the heels of a statement that members of the GOP are essentially “all men, all white,” according to Fox News. It was at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women in early October when Obama made this incredibly misleading statement.
Speaking about a visit to Congress, she said, “What you can see is this real dichotomy—on one side of the room, it’s a feeling of color. 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 are 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.”
After this misleading declaration regarding the ethnic and gender makeup of the GOP, she then stated that women who voted for Mr. Trump were betraying themselves. “Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice,” she declared.
It seems that for Mrs. Obama, anyone who believed Mr. Trump had the best interest of the US at heart, or even disagreed with her opinions, were oppressing themselves.
Michelle Obama has no respect for men. Do you agree?
It’s also difficult to understand the point she was trying to make with her claim that men are entitled because of women’s nurturing. Do men require a women’s oversight in order to be good people? Should mothers be held accountable for the poor decisions their sons make because they “protected” them too much? Are evil men the victims of nurturing?
Whatever the true intent of her statements, it’s sufficient to say that they are undoubtedly incorrect, probably offensive and likely not the last disturbing thing she’ll say.
