Michelle Obama Says Trump Endangered Her Family In New Super-Honest Instagram Post

She accused him of spreading "racist lies" about her family.

In a lengthy and super-honest new Instagram post, Michelle Obama spoke candidly about the U.S. election, Donald Trump and democracy in America.

Sharing a photo of herself and Barack Obama, the former first lady reflected on the U.S. election back in 2016.

“Hilary Clinton had just been dealt a tough loss by a far closer margin than the one we’ve seen this year,” she wrote on Monday, November 16.

“I was hurt and disappointed—but the votes had been counted and Donald Trump had won. The American people had spoken,” she continued.

She went on to say that one of the “greatest responsibilities” of a president is to respect the decision of the American people.

Her comments come as Trump continues to reject the projected 2020 election results, claiming on multiple occasions that the process was fraudulent.

Mrs. Obama went on to admit that doing this for Trump in 2016 wasn’t easy, as he’d “spread racist lies about my husband that had put my family in danger.”

While Michelle said she wasn’t ready to forgive the incumbent president, she said she put her feelings aside “for the sake of our country.”

She noted that she'd answered “every question” Melania Trump asked her at the time, including what it’s like to raise children in the White House.

The former first lady concluded by urging Americans and “our nation’s leaders” to honour the U.S. election process, “just as sitting presidents have done throughout our history.”

On Monday, "White House Karen" began trending on Twitter — a reference to Trump's refusal to concede.
