Former First Lady Michelle Obama became an instant meme while welcoming the new President and his wife to the white house back in January. But Mrs. Obama says she wasn’t trying to throw shade at the Trumps, but rather, she was trying to bottle her emotions.
As she explained at the American Institute of Architects convention Thursday, the beginning of the inauguration marked the last moments that her teenage daughters Malia and Sasha, would have in the White House, the home they’ve lived in for the past 8 years.
“So that moment of transition, right before the doors opened and we welcomed in the new family, our kids were leaving out the back door in tears, saying goodbye to people. I didn’t want to have tears in my eyes because people would swear I was crying because of the new president,” she added.
So that clears it up. But the FLOTUS memes were fun while they lasted
