    Michelle Obama says America is entering a time of hopelessness

    With fewer than 40 days remaining as first lady, Michelle Obama is continuing to reflect on the legacy she and President Obama will leave after having occupied the White House for the last eight years. In a new interview with Oprah Winfrey, the first lady addressed the election outcome and suggested that the U.S. is entering a time of hopelessness.

    “We are feeling what not having hope feels like,” Obama told Winfrey in response to a question about whether President Obama had achieved the “hope and change” he promised while campaigning in 2008. As she often did while campaigning for Hillary Clinton, she didn’t mention President-elect Donald Trump by name. But she alluded to the contrast many in the country are feeling since he won the election last month. “We feel the difference now,” she said, noting that her husband had succeeded in keeping his campaign promise of fostering hope. “Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept,” she elaborated. “And Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was a nice slogan to get votes. He and I and so many believed that … what else do you have if you don’t have hope? What do you give your kids if you can’t give them hope?”

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Maybe she will finally feel how we have been for the past 8 years...

    Hope doesn't pay the bills or put food on the table.

    It's an empty word without meaning outside of Christ.

    I don't like Trump, but seeing a significant portion of the population go into full apocalyptic meltdown mode even before he's sworn in is quite pop-corn worthy; at least he's providing entertainment.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    Not really surprised considering how she claimed that "the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country" was when her husband was elected president that she no longer feels that way.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Never much liked Trump, but all the irrational liberal lies and hate do leave me with some soft spot for him.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
