Michelle Obama Claims They Were ‘Moral Compass’ When In White House, Bashes Trump

Former First Lady Michelle Obama went on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” Friday night to promote her new book “Becoming” which is on the best seller list. But she used it as an opportunity to bash the morals of President Donald Trump.

She also complained about having to be “perfect” when they were in the White House and spoke about the relief she felt upon leaving the White House when they no longer had to be perfect.

From Daily Caller:

“We knew that we were the moral compass. So we had to speak carefully and clearly and intelligently and we couldn’t just say things off the cuff,” Obama stated.


Colbert followed up by asking, “As people who took that moral position seriously, and it is a serious position, how does it feel to see the next occupant, at least of the Oval Office—I can’t speak to anyone else’s in his family—who seems indifferent to that responsibility?”

“The question that we have to ask ourselves is how does the country feel about it? Because I don’t think it matters how I felt about it. I’ve felt torn about it from the day I watched it happen. But now the country has to ask itself, what do we want? What is the bar that we’re setting for ourselves?” the former first lady responded. “It’s up to the voters now to figure out what kind of moral leadership do we demand in the White House, regardless of party, regardless of race, regardless of gender, regardless of wherever you are. What do we want our president to look like?”

“How do we want them to act? And if we vote for one set of behavior, then that’s obviously what we want until we vote differently,” Michelle Obama concluded.

Wait, what?

Let me just list a few of the lies and/or moral failings of the Obama administration.

Which President was it who lied to Americans that they could “keep the plan” and “keep their doctor,” destroying health insurance, plans and the connections people had with their doctors in one fell swoop? Was the Obama architect kidding when he basically confessed that Americans were deliberately kept in the dark because otherwise they never would have gone for it? Was that “just saying things off the cuff?”

Which President said he couldn’t constitutionally do DACA for illegal aliens brought here as children but then did it anyway?

What President didn’t tell the truth to the American people about Benghazi claiming Americans were killed because of an internet video?

We could also talk about how Obama destroyed the concept of equal application of the law when his administration failed to pursue any action against members of his administration for their bad acts including Eric Holder for contempt of Congress in the Fast and Furious case, Lois Lerner in the IRS matter targeting conservatives, John Brennan when he spied on Congress and lied to them about it and of course, Hillary Clinton, when they failed to prosecute her for sending and receiving classified information and deleting emails that were reportedly under subpoena.

That’s just a start, there are plenty more.

And the lies and/or moral failings are about consequential acts harming Americans while Obama was in the presidency.

Hardly “perfect.” And if that’s the “moral compass” people are supposed to follow, we’re all in trouble.

Well, as with all things Leftist….depends on the meaning of the word “moral”….
The Left redefines terms all the time to fit their agenda. Double Speak.

When your blinders are set so wide, so high; when you have hearing so selective to drown out the voices of the people; when you act out your “privilege” of living in the people’s house; of course, you can see nothing positive about who came before you, nor after you. The people voted. The majority prevailed. You and your party lost. Accept it and move on. Be a real American for a change.

There was no moral compass when BO was president. BO was the worst president the United States of America EVER had in its history. Take that to the bank, BO’s, along with the millions you profited from America’s peoples.

Delusions of Grandeur on a massive scales. Obamas must be taking the same crazy pills as the Clintons.
Never forget: Joan Reiver outed tranny Michael/Michelle on TMZ. “All of Hollywood knows.” Two months later, Joan was dead. (imo: Her restrained drag queen strut down Pennsylvania Ave on Inauguration Day gave it away.)

Once again D & S, you two have hit the nail on the head! Very awesome recounting of the moral failings of President Obama…yes, you are right to say there are many more…Obama’s attempts to overthrow the re-election for Israeli P.M. Bibi Netanyahu, his refusal to allow Franklin Graham give the prayer at the National Prayer Breakfast, his underhanded dealings with Iran in sending huge amounts of money in cash to them, etc. On the other hand, President Trump has taken multiple actions that benefit the average American, some of which you have mentioned. I am grateful for his reminder… Read more »

So, Michelle is telling us they put on a show for the people by “pretending” to have moral character while representing the WH and was glad when it was over so they could go back to their immoral ways? Lol, love it! Admitted hypocrites! I’m glad my president doesn’t pretend to anyone other than himself!

Where was the Moral Compass when the National Day of Prayer was cancelled and then to slap Americans in the face the muslims were allowed to pray on the White House lawn? Then the Obama’s talking out of both sides of their mouths saying they are Christians, but blocking Christianity ? Did you folks know that both of the Obama’s have lost their law licenses? I do not care what race you are and what your political affiliation is—-right is right and wrong is wrong. The USA was founded on Christianity, the Bible and the Ten Commandments.
