Michelle Obama says men are ‘useful’; talks girl power to hijab-wearing Muslim students

First lady Michelle Obama is using her taxpayer-funded European vacation to export her unique brand of divisive identity politics to United Kingdom — and the social media world is wishing she’d just stayed home instead.

Mrs. Obama set off a furor with a visit Tuesday to the Mulberry School for Girls in an immigrant-heavy London neighborhood Tuesday, where she talked up “girl power” to a crowd of of hijab-wearing students in the Muslim dominated school.

Obama told the students she “sees herself” in them.

“When I look out at all these young women, I see myself. In so many ways your story is my story,” she said.

Turning her attention to pitting women against men, she said, “ We’ve got to send different messages about the importance of educating our girls.”

Obama, who met with Britain’s Prince Harry before the school visit, used the prince’s support for educating girls as an example of how men can be used to push a feminist agenda.

“You know our sons are important, we love men, we all do, they’re good, they’re useful,” she said.

Like the useful idiots that push the agenda of the Democrat Party.

The first lady’s comments had the Twitterverse buzzing
