Speaking in Boston on Wednesday at a marketing conference called Inbound, former First Lady Michelle Obama had some choice words for women who voted for Donald Trump instead of Hillary Clinton in 2016. During the Q & A, Obama was speaking of how she stayed true to her “authentic self,” adding, “Quite frankly, we saw this in this election. As far as I’m concerned, any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice.”
She continued, “What does it mean for us, as women, that we look at those two candidates… and many of us said, ‘That guy? He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ Well, to me, that just says you don’t like your voice. You like the thing you’re told to like.”
Those women who voted for Trump must be just mindless slaves of the male patriarchy.
But wait; if that’s true, why did 32% of non-married women vote for Trump? And why did 41% of all women vote for Trump?
Is it possible that women of all perspectives can vote they way they wish? You mean The Handmaid’s Tale isn’t real?
Don’t tell Michelle Obama; she whined later in her session, “How many of us have sat in a classroom somewhere and watched a man go on and on and on?”
It’s nice to know that she viewed living in the White House with her husband as a classroom.
