  2. Maroon Horizon says:

    Why would anyway waste time watching this if they don’t even like Michelle? Makes no sense. Why suffer yourself? Why waste the time to hate one someone who doesn’t care about your opinion?

  3. Maroon Horizon says:

    Love you Michelle. You are so articulate, strong, and poised. You inspire me to keeping showing these racists a holes in the comments what black excellence really means. They fear us because of our skin imagine that. THEY FEAR US! Simply because we are darker….shows exactly how dumb they are

    Thank you Michelle for speaking on this issue and phenomenon.
    The content and type of negative comments present under this video speaks volume about the origin of the hatred for Michelle Obama, it's immensely transparent, a reminder that we still have so far to go and that some things truly haven't changed.

  11. Slim Jim says:

    It’s funny that critics of her and her husband are called racist yet the biggest critics I’ve ever seen of the pair are other blacks.

  12. Danielle N says:

    Honestly I relate with her so much. Growing up in a majority Caucasian town always left me feeling less than. I would also have to do better, be better, and go against all those stereotypes people have for people who look like me. Even now that I’ve come to terms that I’m not less then, I still struggle with self worth and self identifying. With all my efforts to be a certain way I sometimes feel as though I’ve lost sight of who I really am. Would I act the way I do if I didn’t feel like the whole world was judging me?

    Wow lol didn't expect all these toxic comments. It's sad because nobody will ever awknowledge the puny existence of your words in the comment section on a post about Michelle Obama.

    Tedious .

  23. Timothy Love says:

    It's called self-centered, self-conscious, poser, fraud.
    When you don't care for the emotions of others, and your sins are known to you, your courage flies away like a bird into the sunset.

    Why are right wingers subscribed to The Guardian on YouTube? The Guardian report facts, go watch Alex Jones and live in your fantasy world.

  27. Richard Ralph Roehl says:

    Michelle ("Michael") Obama is a fraud. This transgender black dude is living a huge lie.

  28. Uproarious Laughter says:

    Wait, she said, shut up, don't complain and just work? That's a conservative mentality. Her party is the Gofundme for my rent, ie Alexander occasional Dorkez party.

  29. Uproarious Laughter says:

    The answer is no, you weren't good enough. This pontificating baboon will be speaking to empty arenas within a couple years, just like Hillary. Lol

    He's still peddling his BS? Sick!

  32. Bold Counsel says:

    It would be fitting if Michelle is a man… Gender-neutral bathtooms, same-sex marriage mandate, and 8,000 genders became a thing when they were in office.

  33. Yosef Shekelson says:
