Divorced dads everywhere are upset with Michelle Obama for comparing President Donald Trump to a "divorced dad." The former First Lady irked divorced dads by suggesting they are unfit parents who make their children sick.

Mrs. Obama made the statement during an interview on Sunday to promote her autobiography 'Becoming' in London.

Obama expressed her frustration over President Trump rolling back many of her husband Barack Obama's policies, including former President Obama's transgender policies.

"For anyone who had any problems with Barack Obama, let's just think about what we were troubled by - there were never any indictments," she told the audience at London's 02 Arena.

Obama told the British audience that Americans are like children living in a broken home.

"We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled," she said. "Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad."

She didn't specify what she meant by "get sick."

Obama described her life after the White House as "drowning" in a "tidal wave" of emotions.

"It's like swimming in the ocean with great waves. If you are not a great swimmer, you are not going to learn in the middle of a tidal wave. You are going to resort to your kicking and drowning and what you knew how to do in the pool."

She said she struggles to watch the news these days.

"When I am not emotionally able to deal with it I turn it off for a moment. I only let some of that stuff into my world when I'm ready. You can't have a steady diet of fear and frustration coming in."

    Weird analogy who ever wrote the speak should have reworded or just rewritten the whole thing its an outdated sterotype. People need to stop putting this woman on a pedestal she's only human people expect her to be a light in dark times uplifting the masses instead of looking within .

  • Monica Lewinsky

    Hmmm...Trump can literally incite violence on a sitting congresswoman but divorced dads wanna cry about a damn quote! I don’t think it was an accurate description but certainly nothing to whine about. And First Lady Michelle you are so beautiful!!

  • imright

    SHE SAID WHAT SHE SAID ??

  • Just Me

    I JUST LOVE THIS LADY! SHE IS ALL THAT!!

  • R Smith

    Okay!!!

  • R Smith

    SHE SAID WHAT SHE SAID!!!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    It really irks people that Michelle 0bama is articulate and can command media presence wherever she goes.
    And she didn't have to do nude poses to get a man.

  • disqus_Wom8P5RXM8

    She is not even a lady. What lady you know sits like that!!?

  • Li-Wright

    She's just being overly dramatic, playing to her audience.

  • disqus_Wom8P5RXM8

    Michelle Obama will soon understand what divorce feels like.

  • Phillybruh

    I know a few divorced dads and the first couple months they are a bit much.

  • What???

    ABSOLUTELY

  • Elevated Soul

    That moose face bish and her hubby-wife are so preoccupied with President Trump.I see through her very clearly,she is as fake as it get.

  • What???

    Michelle is mentally unstable and erratic. It’s her karma for not submitting to her husband who’s already a weak and feminine male. Feminists like her love weak men and feel good politics until they get old.

  • XoXo

    Right. They want her to dumb down.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    The total opposite is true. Trump has spent most of his presidency trying to undo everything Obama did. He could have been working on his wall from Day 1.
    And to top it off, Melania steals Michelle's material!
    Who wants to beat whom...?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Not gonna happen.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I think she's gotten comfortable doing her book tour and is just speaking off the cuff.

  • nick c

    Shes meaning that the divorced dad is a fun dad until you get sick like he doesn't know what to do this is definitely a poor analogy.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's even worse. So dad's can't take care of sick kids because they're men? Does she know male doctors outnumber female doctors.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    My dad wasn't ? while he was married nor ? once he divorced. He'll probably die STILL not being ?.

  • Renee26

    Amen beautiful Queen!! No lies told... I feel like we're drowning with this administration and can't wait to get back to normal (mom's house)

    You're rockin that blue too!!

  • Renee26

    Ain't no love like a good mother's love...even when daddy is in the home momma gives a whole other level of comfort and caring

  • Janice Collins

    Here come everybody explaining why divorce bad. Ain’t had a husband in the first. I swear, i hope she don’t tell y’all to jump off a roof because we sure would miss ya.

  • Janice Collins

    No it irks us that she is Harvard educated and says silly shit like this. I’m not fan of Hilary but for her to insinuate that she isn’t fit to be president because her husband cheats on her. All the reasons and that the one she pick. I hope to God Obama is the man y’all think he is, because it would kill her.

  • 2gr8ful

    He says/tweets what he wants so this causes an uproar??? Fact: Tomorrow when she gets up she will still be the former First Lady-Moving right along. Have a blessed night.

  • UsuallyItsBusiness25

    Did she give a reason as of why she said that about Hilary . Was is because it would take too much attention from raw focus ... ? I don’t think Michelle see the presidential position as even a good spot for herself . Say what you want about the Obamas but they were scandal free . What could come out later would have nothing to do with the terms Obama has already served .

  • Faux Gibbler

    Michelle sitting like that. Ugh.

  • Janice Collins

    Lol. Not paying attention to their dirt is not scandal free. And it doesn't matter what her reason was for saying it is, it was wrong. At no time ever is a woman’s job qualifications hindered by her husband infidelity

  • tia

    Mrs. Obama could have said , " It's a beautiful day" and they'd still find fault with that. Damn if she do, damn if she don't...f@@k 'em. "They" get on my nerves.

  • Eileen

    I was just about to comment on that even when I am home alone I dont sit like that!

  • Eileen

    Michelle ALWAYS had a horrible speech writer!

  • Eileen

    Why is she concerned about the tranxsexuals?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Trump says foul and stupid shyt on a daily basis. So what! U know what she meant. Your parents divorced, u go with your dad and it’s sickening bc u so used to both parents not one just on the weekends. I get it. Y’all can play silly tho....

  • Cheese eggs

    So are we talking about first ladies now because that former po## #oe that we have up their now......

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    And trump is a divorced dad in real life. Two wives. America is unsettled right now. I just did my taxes. Ain’t never owed. O I’m sick alright. Real sick. This how trump doing folks on they taxes https://media2.giphy.com/media/ND6xkVPaj8tHO/giphy.gif

  • Chocolate

    Ikr- love her, but hate that

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Seriously?

    That's your take?

    If anyone besides someone with the last name Obama had said what she said you would be amen-ing from Atlanta to Chicago saying that women are the natural nurturers.

  • C Mack

    You’ve been making some POINTS, m’aam!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    What kind of FLOTUS has her naked hoo hoo all over the internet?

    I think you disagree just to be disagreeable, Rod.

  • Jethro

    Tell 'em, First Lady Michelle!!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thanks hun. Appreciate you. ??

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Is that really your response?

    You're deflecting onto me because you know the only reason you disagree with her is because you hate her husband.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I stopped hating him as soon as he left the White House. We're good now.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's former First Lady Michelle.

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    I see no lie here Melanie don't like tRUMP

  • Topic Influencer

    Three wives. Mel lucky number 3.

    You are not alone in owing. And I got a dependent still left at home. I make pennies as it is okay? Crazy

  • Jethro

    Fixed.

  • Pamela

    Post a link please. I would love to read her comment to understand context of where/ how/Why.

  • Pamela

    Blocked for idiocy

  • Janice Collins

    Just google the video. It was during the first campaign.

  • Pamela

    The onus falls on you to provide any documentation that corroborates your statement.

  • disqus_Wom8P5RXM8

    Melania modeled, that was
    her career. She was not First Lady at the time. Some of y’all had several abortions, slept with random people, do drugs and have several babies out of wedlock on your hip from different fathers. Michelle should know better than to sit like that. They are already calling her Michael due to those pictures with the bulge. We all know bathhouse Barry is known for liking a bulge in the pants.

  • Janice Collins

    Lol nothing i can provide you will be as satisfying as you researching it yourself. I know she is as petty if not more than Trump.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Can you explain what he did to you personally to make you hate him?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    And guess what Republicans have claimed presidential contenders prior to Trump were disqualified if they had done anything on that list.

    I am not going to address the rest of your post because you sound like one of those posters from Breitbart or Infowars.

    Consider yourself blocked.

  • ALLMINE?

    Trump is our biggest concern as black folks? ???????

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Bad analogy, but people get the gist of what she was trying to convey!

    America is “sick” “dis-eased” “divided” and very “depressed”...

    We’re the number 1 super power, but mental illness, addiction, violence, suicide rates, and poverty (hardest hit, rural America) rules!

    We’re fragile, most get their life and identity from living vicariously through the lives of celebrities on SM, while the 1 percent holds the bulk of the wealth, as we do as capitalists and narcissists!

    But, God’s people, believers or balanced individuals are doing just fine, but we’re not the masses!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Where do I begin? His socialized healthcare affected me personally. My insurance doubled from $300 a month to $600 a month. His transgender policies affected me personally. My mom and I stopped using public restrooms because of Obama. He failed to follow through on 80% of the campaign promises he made to Black people. The list goes on and on.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Right Melania naked pics the first ones to come up when u google her name. Not classy at all but Melania didn’t sign up to be a First Lady either. She only wanted to be rich. Y u think she married a man 24 years older than she. She didn’t sign up for all of this

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I just think she was comfortable. Sometimes I do that without thought

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Trump don said all type of shyt about her and president Obama so I don’t see why ppl mad at her comment. She told u in her book she can’t stand trump

  • Sweetness

    Really Mrs. Obama??? Transgender policies? I'm confused. What about fighting for ...let me hush! Umph, umph, umph.

  • Sweetness

    Thank you!

  • Sweetness

    This part!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    U know trump tried to say Obama wasn’t a us citizen and he put her family in jeopardy of being attacked bc of the birtherism hoopla that trump started. She can say petty stuff all she want bc trump does it daily

  • Jethro

    That change goes for you too. First Lady Michelle Obama!!! Seethe.

  • TamG

    How did Trump “incite violence” on a Congresswoman?

  • chan chan

    She was wrong for that. She need to watch her man hating mouth when she’s a man herself. Yes Michelle everyone know u are are a man Michael.

  • RICHIE_RICH

  • RICHIE_RICH

  • RICHIE_RICH

  • free

    i don't know WTF she is talking about. i don't get it either.

  • Lucky8

    The title 'Divorced dads' have been debased significantly. If I was one I would be so offended

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    How did his transgender policies impact you personally?

    Your mom sounds simple like her daughter.

    Please detail the campaign promises that Obama failed to follow through for blacks.

    Please and thank you.

  • Janice Collins

    That not what he said. He said he was born in Kenya. And where did he get it? Hilary Clinton. And where did she get it? Well, Obama’s grandmother did say I remember when he was born in Kenya. So he didn’t start it. He was just repeating what he heard. And he stopped after the long form birth certificate was released. And if everybody petty then the all the same correct. There are no moral hero’s in politics. And one should not pretend to be one. But she selling a lot of books right.

    I've not seen or heard of this so I can't address it. Doesn't sound like anything a married woman would say. Partners can't control each other.

    She was obviously in the middle of speech & talking with her hands & body language. If ya'll were not so quick to hate on our fellow sister you would notice that the first picture shows her with her legs crossed as the classy woman she is! They intentionally just caught her at an awkward time. She is a beautiful black queen trying to put into words the pain & disappointment of having someone like Trump in office. I feel ya Mrs. Obama.
