Former first lady Michelle Obama is in the news, taking the racially divisive baton from her husband, Barack, to further the Black Lives Matter narrative that police in America are overtly racist.
In a “CBS This Morning” interview with anchor Gayle King, Mrs. Obama spoke about police brutality and systemic racism in America, the irony of two fabulously wealthy black women talking about oppression on national TV being off the charts.
Candace Owens appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and, after pointing out the wealth the Obamas have accumulated in a country they so readily denounce as racist, declared, “If that’s oppression, where can I get some?”
Repeating the left’s mantra about there still being “work to be done,” Obama claimed that she lives with a “fear” of being black in America — on tony Martha’s Vineyard.
“Many of us still live in fear as we go to the grocery store, walking our dogs or allowing our children to get a license,” she said, noting that her daughters now drive. “But every time they get in a car by themselves I worry about, ‘What assumption is being made by somebody who doesn’t know everything about them?’ The fact that they are good students and polite girls, but maybe they’re playing their music a little loud. Maybe someone sees the back of their head and makes an assumption.”

In setting up the segment, host Tucker Carlson noted in jest “the biggest problem” in the nation may be that Barack and Michelle Obama “are still oppressed.”
He played a clip of the former first lady’s remarks, sarcastically observing, “She’s more oppressed than even Meghan Markle is. Will somebody liberate the Obamas?”
“I think we have to launch an investigation,” Owens deadpanned. “Because I want to know which nannie, which chef, which housekeeper, which chauffeur, which Secret Service agent, which gardener, which landscaper is oppressing Michelle Obama, Barack Obama, the children and I think we’ve got to get to the bottom of it at this point.”
It was at this point, after noting that the Obamas’ estimated net worth is around $135 million, that she said, “If that’s oppression, where can I get some?”
Owens also joked about Secret Service protection, saying their daughters “probably have not touched their own door handle in years.”
“And we’re supposed to believe that you’re oppressed, while the rest of the country is actually suffering?” she said. “Please, Michelle Obama, give some of that oppression to the rest of America because we sure could use it.”
Carlson chimed in to speak of a theme he has noticed.
“There’s a lot of extremely rich people who are deeply miserable and desperate to have you believe they are victims,” he said.
“Lebron James living in Bel Air, he’s a victim,” Owens answered. “Meghan Markle, downgraded from billionaire to multi-millionaire, she’s a victim, they want you to know that they’re all victims. It’s because they’re trying to distract us.”
She explained that these wealthy liberals see average Americans as peasants and they want to make us believe that they are one of us.
“They’re not one of us. They’re nothing like us. They don’t live like us,” Owens said. “[Michelle] has nothing that goes on her life that’s similar to the average American, yet she keeps trying to use her skin color, her complexion as a way to make them believe she is suffering and she is absolutely not suffering.”
“Everyone should be aware that if you’re watching this and you think that Lebron James and Meghan Markle, and Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are oppressed, you’re a fool,” she concluded. “You have been fooled, they’re doing just fine.”
