My trauma? Our folks?! What an arrogant, foolish woman, one of the privileged few.

“You know, the day I left the White House, it was painful to sit on that stage, and then a lot of our folks didn’t vote — it was almost a slap in the face… It wasn’t just in this election, but every midterm, every time Barack didn’t get the Congress he needed, that was because our folks didn’t show up. After all that work, they just couldn’t be bothered to vote at all. That’s my trauma.” — Michelle Obama

I have never had a job that pays $300,000 a year. I have never had Secret Service protection. I have never been paid millions by Netflix. I have never been paid millions for book deals. I have never described a group of voters as “my folks” and have never acted as if I owned them or their votes. To me, that sentiment is disgusting and arrogant.

As someone who has lived through years of abuse, to call losing elections “trauma” is revolting. It is appalling and shows her complete lack of understanding. She has never experienced a traumatic moment during her elitist, privileged life.
