Michelle Obama Bolsters The Resistance: ‘Hold on to Hope’

Michelle Obama gave a message to “The Resistance” in order to bolster their faith. The former first lady told them on the “Ellen” show on Thursday, “All we have is hope.”

This is reportedly the first television interview that Obama has given since her husband left office. When asked if there was anything she would like to say to people who find that we are living in “scary place right now,” she said that people should have hope instead of fear.

Obama said, “People are afraid, but then there are people who feel good about the direction of the country, so I mean, that’s what makes this country complicated because it’s made up of so many different people from different backgrounds.”

“The thing I learned in the eight years that I was in the White House is that what we do every day in our lives, the good things that we do every day — and we know we do it: we show empathy, we care for each other, you know, we do have a lot in common. That’s what it means to lead with hope and not fear,” she continued.

Is anyone else seeing what a joke this is? Who in their right mind is living in fear because Donald Trump is president? Illegal immigrants? They should be, they’re breaking the law!

“I would just encourage your viewers, the country, to do the things we do every day: to love each other, to take care of each other, to show empathy — and you can’t do that only when people make you feel good or safe,” Obama concluded,  “We have to be an open-hearted nation and that’s who we are. … So, let’s just keep living our lives like that every single day and forget what they’re saying in Washington. That’s not necessarily who we are. We know who we are.”
