Mrs. Obama remains a hugely popular and influential figure in the United States after her husband Barack served as president for eight years. The two are still widely seen as a “strong couple” as they work on many projects and engage in active political debate. Just yesterday, Obama mocked incumbent US President Donald Trump for taking out a 60-minute interview.
Speaking at a rally in Miami, he said, “It’s a good idea if you are running for re-election to say, ‘This is what I want to achieve.’
“What did Trump say? He got angry and walked out of the interview. The questions were very difficult. Very difficult?
“Miami, look, if he can’t answer a question like, What would you like to do in your second state, our job is to make sure he doesn’t get a second term.”
This came after Mrs. Obama condemned Mr. Trump, describing him as “not at the level of the job.”
The former first lady said the Trump presidency has been accompanied by “the constant drumbeat of fear, division and chaos threatening to get out of control.”
However, she wasn’t always so confident in front of the camera.
Reports discovered from October 2019 revealed how she was devoid of mind during a conversation with popular chat show host, Oprah Winfrey.
During the interview, Mrs. Obama completely forgot the age of her children.

Mrs. Obama replied, “Thank you for that.
“You know I won’t hear the end of it.
They’d be like, ‘My mom doesn’t even know how old we are. “
The audience erupted into fits of laughter as Mrs. Obama smiled.
Before Biden officially declared himself the Democratic antagonist, a surprise poll even saw Mrs. Obama take the lead as the United States’ favorite to confront Trump.
The poll, compiled 12 months ago by Axios / Survey Monkey, put her 13 points ahead of Trump in a virtual election.
However, she did reflect on the uproar that made her run by asserting that she would not take the role.
Speaking on Conan O’Brien’s podcast, Mrs. Obama said: “What Barack and I are talking about, and what we miss, is the loss of anonymity.
“This is something most people don’t understand, and how important anonymity is. To be able to integrate into your environment, and not be the focus of it, but just to observe it … and because I love people so much, I love conversations with people.”
“While I loved the time I spent in the car alone with Chipotle, I love what you learn from standing in line at the grocery store and listening to someone’s conversation,” she added.
“You know, you observe their interactions with their loved ones. It’s not being a pass, but rather watching, taking that into account and understanding life and upcoming notes.
Most of your interactions with your partner have to do with what you saw, and what you experienced throughout the day.
“For Barack and I, this is still very limited because we are unable to reveal our identity in an anonymous way in the world.”
