People are losing their minds because Michelle Obama said ‘sh

  • Michelle Obama dazzles this week in a white sequin top and trousers from the Sally La Pointe Fall 2018 collection while promoting her new book Becoming

Promoting her memoir "Becoming" to a packed house at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, former First Lady Michelle Obama dismissed common feminist advice coined by Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg as "s***" that usually "doesn't work".

Some Obama fans were so overcome by hearing her utter the expletive that they reacted in the extreme, saying their lives have "been forever changed".

Asked how she felt to be seen as a "symbol of hope", Mrs Obama told the live audience: "I still have a little imposter syndrome, it never goes away, that you're actually listening to me. That's a lie, and it's not always enough to lean in, because that shit doesn't work all the time".

Even Sandberg herself acknowledged that "leaning in" didn't really benefit women in the years after her book became a best-seller, and after her husband passed away, she wrote that she had never realized just how hard it is to be a single mother, and how many institutions are created to work against their professional successes.

Specifically, she takes issue with the idea that women can (and often are expected to) "have it all".

There was no confirmation that the prince might also visit Algeria's neighbour Morocco, despite speculation in the local press. In the Mauritanian capital Nouakchott early Sunday, he was welcomed by President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz.

Former MSNBC host Toure, who was at the speech, called it a "cute moment" and mocked those who criticized the first lady over it.

"And it's not always enough to lean in, because that s*** doesn't work all the time, '" Obama said speaking about how to fuse equality and respect work in the workplace.

As the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle knows what it's like to take on such a public role, just as Meghan did this year.

Connie Schultz wrote in the 2013 Post review that Sandberg's book is "full of good intentions", but added that the advice "sounds like a prescription for how to lean in until you collapse from exhaustion".

Michelle goes on to say why she felt it was important to share such relationship struggles with the public, noting that she's aware the two are often viewed as the flawless couple. "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".

The Queen's comment was said to have been made when US President Barack Obama and his wife arrived at Windsor Castle by helicopter in 2016.

Are you one of those people who thinks royal protocol is all nonsense?

Obama promptly apologized for her strong language. "What's inspiring to me is that so numerous young women I've met are triumphing in incredible ways".

"I love it. She can say whatever she wants now". "I touched her. After all those protocol lessons, I was human", she said of the incident.
