Former First Lady, Michelle Obama, who is best known for the permanent scowl on her face, attended College Signing Day in Philadelphia, where she spoke to the college kids in a tone usually reserved for toddlers. Michelle entered the stage to a song written about Michelle Obama, while actors like the hate-filled Robert DiNero and Bradley Cooper were seen smiling and clapping behind her.
Michelle spoke to the high school students in the same tone Barney the purple dinosaur used with the small children seated around him in a circle: “Do you know all of the folks you have seen on stage? They came here for you. And you saw them up here. We’ve got athletes and celebrities and musicians and folks who have a lot going on. But when they heard you were gonna be here today, they dropped everything just to celebrate you.”
Obama, 54, told a crowd of over 8,000 high school seniors at Temple University in Philadelphia that she, as the “forever first lady,” and the nation is counting on them to succeed.
“We need you all to be successful… We have such high hopes for you. See, I am not one of those doubters. I know that you have everything it takes to succeed,” Obama said.
“I know you are me, and if I can be standing here as your forever first lady, then you can do anything you put your mind to,” she continued drawing huge applause from the audience. –Breitbart
Michelle Obama told the kids not to give up on their “shtruggle” and how to handle the “haters”: “I was a kid, who grew up on the south side of Chicago. I went to public schools my entire life. And when I decided I wanted to go to college, and I applied, do you know what one of my college counselors told me? She told me, ‘Don’t set my sights too high.’ Yeah…She told me that some of the schools that I was trying applying to were maybe too hard for me, they were too out of my reach. And I know some of you may have heard that too. They’re always “haters” out there, telling you what you can’t do.”
Haters? Really Mooch?
Michelle continued: “But here’s why I’m so proud of you all…because you guys ignored the haters.”
Michelle told the students about how “intimidating” Princeton felt to her when she first walked onto the campus. Of course, no speech to students by our former first lady would be complete without explaining the “shtruggle” she faced, as she was “surrounded by students with so much wealth and privilege.”
Poor Michelle, for her, it’s always about the “shtruggle”
