Michelle Obama is BLASTING Black voters in her new Netflix special, MTO News has learned, and it appears that the former First Lady is blaming Black voters for Donald Trump's election to the White House and not the rest of America.
That is both a surprising and interesting view considering that 91% of all Black people that voted in 2016, voted against Trump. That's more than any other demographic, and the largest percentage of "No" votes that any American president in history has ever received.
But apparently Michelle wanted even MORE Black people to vote against Trump and puts the onus of his election on the African American community and not the 57% of White women who actually voted FOR Trump over Hillary Clinton.
Here's a clip from a recent Yahoo News article that explains Michelle's inexplicable position:
While Trump is casually referenced from the first minutes and the mood of the country scores the film’s entire conversation, it’s not until roughly two-thirds through the film that she addresses her negative feelings about his 2016 victory directly. Twice, she talks about how painful it is to her that black voters didn’t turn out to vote for Hillary Clinton, calling the decision not to vote more painful to her than those who voted for Trump.
“It takes some energy to go high, and we were exhausted from it. Because when you are the first black anything…” she said, referencing anecdotes from her Becoming book. “So the day I left the White House and I write about how painful it was to sit on that [inauguration] stage. A lot of our folks didn’t vote. It was almost like a slap in the face.”
“I understand the people who voted for Trump,” she continued. “The people who didn’t vote at all, the young people, the women, that’s when you think, man, people think this is a game. It wasn’t just in this election. 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.”
