Michelle Obama, during a conversation held at the 39th annual Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston, compared President Trump and her husband to two very different types of parents.
Trump, of course, was the bad parent who allows you to eat candy and stay up late at night watching cartoons. By contrast, her husband was the good parent who was responsible and guided you to do the right things in life.
If you haven’t already vomited, take a look at her statements regarding how great America was under Barack’s leadership.
“I think what we see is what happens when we take things for granted,” Obama told moderator and Simmons President, Helen Drinan. “For the eight years Barack was president, it was like having the ‘good parent’ at home. The responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time.”
"It felt like the 8 years that Barack was President, it was sort of like having the good parent at home, the responsible parent….and now perhaps we have the other parent." – @MichelleObama at Simmons College Leadership Conference in Boston, MA.

In a sense, she’s right about that. Obama was the guy who forced you to purchase a commodity in his health insurance plan. He made you take your medicine.
He also once told Congress that they would have to ‘eat their peas’ and increase the debt ceiling.
“We might as well do it now,” he told his colleagues in 2011. “Pull off the band-aid. Eat our peas.”
What a good parent!
Trump, however, he’s a different kind of parent altogether, according to the former First Lady.
“And now we have the other parent,” she added. “We thought it’d feel fun, maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day and stay up late, and not follow the rules.”
This is where we differ from Mrs. Obama. President Trump is the first president in over a decade to tell people they need to actually start following the rules.
Two examples – Illegal immigration and DACA, in which he rescinded Obama’s illegal executive orders on the matter and simply told Congress to implement it in a Constitutional manner. That’s not exactly a guy who ignores rules and laws, you know like Obama did for eight years.

Mrs. Obama also stated that every day she looks at the news and sees what President Trump is doing she gets a case of the sads and takes “a deep sigh.”
I guess now she knows how America felt for the previous eight years.
