[Michelle Obama] took a swipe at President Donald Trump — and single dads — during an event in London on Sunday. Hawking her new book “Becoming,” she sat down with late-night talk show host Stephen Colbert at the O2 Arena, where she first bragged about how good things were when The Chosen One was in the White House.
“For anyone who had any problems with Barack Obama, let’s just think about what we were troubled by — there were never any indictments,” she said. . .
“We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled,” Obama said. “Sometimes, you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad.”
Interestingly, Barack Obama is the product of a broken family. His white mother and black father were married in 1961, six months before he was born, and split in 1964. His estranged father would visit him in Hawaii only once before he died in a car accident in 1982. His father’s absence was part of the driving force behind Obama’s memoir, “Dreams from My Father.”
He was also an advocate of fathers while president, even urging black men to stay in a family unit. “Fathers are our first teachers and coaches … they’re our mentors, our role models,” the president told a gathering of local students and their families in 2010.
