Former first lady Michelle Obama took a few jabs at President Donald Trump on Thursday at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston, even suggesting that her husband, Barack Obama, was the “good parent” in comparison to Trump.
“I think what we see is what happens when we take things for granted,” Obama told Simmons College President Helen Drinan, according to The Hill. “For the eight years Barack was president, it was like having the ‘good parent’ at home. The responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time.”

“And now we have the other parent,” Obama continued, referencing President Trump. “We thought it’d feel fun, maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day and stay up late and not follow the rules.”
Obama’s seemingly innocous”parent” jabs echo the Democrats deep desire for a nanny state.
Like Hillary, Mrs. Obama blamed women for not being brave enough to vote for another woman. She also echoed Hillary Clinton’s Orwellian desire to “shape” children from the Oval Office in her comments about President Obama being a “parent.”
As @FLOTUS said, the choice in this election is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four years of their lives.

As if that wasn’t condescending and creepy enough, Obama went on to echo her husbands’ mantra about “being the change we seek” saying “the power for change is within us… we’re the answer that we seek.”
She got another shot in at Trump when she insisted Hillary Clinton was the “best qualified candidate” in the 2016 election — Obama blamed Clinton’s loss on women being hesitant to vote for another woman for president — saying that “she wasn’t perfect, but she was way more perfect” than the alternative.
On a positive note, Obama reiterated she is not inclined to run for president, while stressing that she lacks the “passion for politics.”
“The reason why I don’t want to run for president — I can’t speak for Oprah, but my sense is that first of all, you have to want the job,” she said.
For perhaps the first time in her adult life, Mrs. Obama said something conservative Americans can agree with.
“I don’t want to be president, I don’t think I should be president,” she stated. “I think I can do a lot of things, but that’s not one of them.”
The following is a video from the conference. In full disclosure, BPR has not been able to locate the exact clip of Michelle Obama’s parenting comparison, but several news outlets have reported the same quotes.
