(ConservativePeak.com)- Trump Derangement Syndrome is very real – or at least in the case of Michelle Obama, it’s Trump Depression Syndrome. The former First Lady of the United States admitted recently that she has been suffering from “low-grade depression” (is that a technical term?) and blamed her sadness on President Donald Trump and his administration. Specifically, Obama claimed that the president’s response to so-called racial injustice was the source of her woes.
During an interview with Michelle Norris, a columnist from the Washington Post, Obama claimed that she has suffered depression lately because of the death of George Floyd, the Chinese coronavirus, and President Trump.
“There have been periods throughout this quarantine where I just have felt too low,” Obama said, from one of her mansions. “You know, I’ve gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don’t feel yourself.”
It must really suck to be stinking rich and stuck inside, huh?
Obama described how she had been struggling to sleep, and that she knows she is “dealing with some form of low-grade depression.”
“Not just because of this quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting,” she said, without explaining the hypocrisy.
“I have to say that waking up to the news, waking up to how this administration has or has not responded, waking up to yet another story of a black man or a black person somehow being dehumanized or hurt or killed, or falsely accused of something, it is exhausting,” she said.
What about presidents who are constantly falsely accused of things? And all the white people who die every day, too?
“It has led to a weight that I haven’t felt in my life in…in a while,” she added.
We’ve all been dealing with a lot of change in our lives and our communities. And I couldn’t think of anyone better to talk to about this moment then my friend, @michele_norris. You can listen now on @Spotify: https://t.co/9GyFmLFAid #MichelleObamaPodcast pic.twitter.com/fmdOuJlsRO
