Barack Obama’s wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama once said “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country, because it feels like hope is making a comeback … not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.”
Her statement that she was really proud of America for the first time ever set off a firestorm for obvious reasons.
The beginning of Michelle’s adult life occurred in 1982 since she was born in 1964. The newfound pride in the country quickly attracted critics.
Commentary magazine published an article on this topic at the time where the author asked “Can it really be there has not been a moment during that time when she felt proud of her country?
Forget matters like the victory in the Cold War; how about only things that have made liberals proud — all the accomplishments of inclusion? How about the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1991? Or Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s elevation to the Supreme Court?”
Now Michelle Obama has something else she can be proud of. A TV series about her getting canceled because it was horrible and because no one watched.
