Michelle Obama urges United Kingdom schoolgirls to end 'nastiness' in politics by voting

Michelle Obama shocks NYC crowd with use of the S*** word

Michelle Obama shocks NYC crowd with use of the S*** word

Even though she spent two terms in the White House, Mrs. Obama says that she doesn't have a desire to run for the office.

Recalling another time she broke protocol, Mrs Obama said: 'This is just how it feels to be at these high levels where people are talking protocol to protocol, that is how these big foreign exchanges are. "That's a lie. It's not always enough to lean in, because that s-t doesn't work".

She first met pupils from the school during the G20 summit nine years ago, when she had only been first lady for a few months, and later hosted a dozen pupils at the White House.

"Marriage still ain't equal y'all, it ain't equal". You give me a sense of comfort because being first lady wasn't the easiest job in the world but I got strength from you, so thank you all for that, thanks for giving me that'. If you look at the history of America, the Voting Rights Act is not as old as I am so we are still overcoming. As part of her visit, she took 40 or so of its pupils to Oxford University. "And so then it's time to go to marriage counseling", she added, to delighted laughter from the audience.

Obama appears to have been disagreeing with a feminist philosophy shared by Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg in her book, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, which urges women to be more ambitious. "It's two independent individuals who are trying to come together to build a life forever". "As much as I wish that could happen in four years, I don't think that's a likely time period but I think it can happen sooner than we think".

She told some 300 students - mostly girls aged between 11 and 18 - at a north London school that her last visit there as the first lady in 2009 had inspired her to work for better education. "I have never been a fan of politics and my experience over the past 10 years has done nothing to change that".

On her father's death: "While his death was sudden, it was always lurking for us because he was the kind of man who wouldn't get help and was proud and he didn't believe in doctors, and he didn't believe in self pity".

Mrs. Obama was speaking to author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi at an event to promote her new autobiography "Becoming" at the Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall in London.

Trump with "his loud and reckless innuendos" about her husband's birth certificate put "my family's safety at risk".
