Michelle Obama talks self-doubt, Princeton, and life after White House

  • Опубліковано 14 лис 2018
  • As first lady, Michelle Obama found herself on the world stage as one of the most visible women in the world. But growing up she says she was haunted by self-doubt - one of the revelations in her new memoir, "Becoming." In a wide-ranging conversation with "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King, Obama describes learning that she was not alone in wondering, "Am I good enough?"

    That's all blind/stupid uninformed Dems like Big Mike can do is deflect and blame truthtellers like me. Those two fraudulent, Democrats, con-artist men (Barry & Big Mike) manipulate people like you, into hating the truth being told about your Democratic politicians! The world knows all Democrat politicians & voters are godless, moralless, murders of their own unborn baby and are vile!

    P. S. No one will remember the Obamas aside from a footnote but history will study how President Trump turned the disaster of Obama's administration around and made America function again.

    Michael is an idiot and can barely string two audible words together let alone write a book. I heard his interview about it. His responses were pathetic, so I know damn well that he was NOT the one who wrote that book.

    I bet your thesis was better than Michelle(America is a downright mean place) Obama. She has the priviledge (through affirmative action) to go to Princeton University and she still has no gratitude for the greatest nation on earth. Too bad she is not living in a hut trying to avoid Malaria back on her ancestors continent. She has no grace, no beauty and she is an ungrateful person.

    Oh, do you think CBS and Michelle Obama understand that the average American citizen will not pay $200,000 or $2.00 to listen to her or anyone else for that matter. But, if alot of the elites are into that, that is no surprise. The 1% are so eager to pay. Oh, we all get it...Michelle is not going to read from her book at a Barnes and Nobles to the average consumer; but maybe Nexflix will broadcast something. Tell all current and past presidents wives that not all citizens buy their stuff. Will Michelle come out with a clothing line next? Probably, like the Trumps have.

    It was Michelle who said that she was not proud of her country till Barack's presidential nomination. It was Michelle who said that America is a downright mean place. It is Michelle who wrote a thesis at Princeton that was so poorly written that you had to question her admittance there. You can find her thesis on the internet. Getting into Princeton is extremely difficult and she obviously was the benefactor of racially biased admissions practices.

    Just had this discussion with a group of friends how their guidance counselors were sh*t. I had teachers when i was receiving A's and B's tell me i shouldnt go to the next level of math because they didnt think i was ready. The way he spoke to me you would have thought I was failing. This happened to me several times. Mind you I had honors classes as well. I wasnt dumb, just lacked motivation. I 100 percent believe if i had a better support system i would have thrived more in school.

    I cried happy tears when Mr. Obama became elected the first time. I had some disappointments from him, but this woman is our best First Lady ever- and I have no doubt about that. Michelle Obama is 100% a class act, and no other First Lady will top her. She is what we need, and she is fantastic.

    I was told by the Dean of Admissions at a FEW medical schools that I would never get accepted or make it through medical school. One even laughed at me. But I remembered something my dad always told me... "Allie you can and will achieve whatever you work hard for. The only man who didn't was the man that did not try." Now I am 2 years away from graduating for medical school!
    Hey you that is reading this, DO NOT listen to the doubters. They don't know what you are capable of. Give it your all and watch you surprise yourself! Sending you love and positive vibes!

    I remember my Literature teacher telling me in High school that I would not achieve anything in life because I couldn't afford to buy a textbook. That was a punch in the gut for a grade nine student. Today I am an English and Literature teacher. I proudly source textbooks for my students who have financial challenges. Never accept people's negative perception of you. Thanks Mrs Obama for inspiring young ladies like myself.

    Michelle is being very gracious about her school counsellor from 2:53 as it's more than likely that the counsellor slotted her into a box from the moment she saw that she was a Black girl. I have to wonder how the counsellor feels now if she's seen this interview or even as she saw Michelle entering the White House as FLOTUS. I wonder if she even remembers telling a young Michelle Robinson that she wasn't Princeton material. Thank goodness for Michelle's parents and wider family who instilled in her the belief that she could achieve her dreams. #Becoming
