Michelle Obama is opening up about the Derek Chauvin verdict — “We’re all breathing a sigh of relief” — and how she fears for her daughters “every time they get in a car by themselves.”
In an upcoming Monday interview with CBS This Morning’s Gayle King, a clip of which was released Friday, the former first lady explained how the guilty verdict of former Minneapolis police officer Chauvin, who murdered George Floyd in 2020, was only a first step in fighting systemic racism.
“There’s still work to be done,” Michelle, 57, told King. “So, we can’t sort of say, ‘Great, that happened, let’s move on.’ I know that people in the Black community don’t feel that way, because many of us still live in fear as we go to the grocery store or worry about walking our dogs or allowing our children to get a license.”
Former first lady Michelle Obama has revealed she is terrified that even her two daughters will probably be racially profiled after they’re within the automobile alone.
“I, like so many dad and mom of black children … the harmless act of getting a license places worry in our hearts,’’ she stated.“I feel we have now to speak about it extra. And we have now to ask our fellow residents to pay attention a bit extra, and to consider us, and to know we don’t wanna be on the market marching.’’
Michelle also opened up about how the coronavirus pandemic has affected mental health. She previously admitted to feeling a low grade of depression during the past year. King said more of the sit-down with the former first lady will air Monday.
Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson wants to know and the statement she recently made on Twitter.Here’s what she said: “Michelle Obama is so concerned about the safety of her daughters that she got one of them an internship with Harvey Weinstein.”
Back in 2017, Michelle Obama went to work to get her daughter a sweet deal working for the rapist.
