Michelle Obama drops bombshell confession on making her daughters cry – ‘Get out of here’ | World | News

The former First Lady recounted how Malia and Sasha were in tears when she had to get them out of the White House. Michelle explained she allowed her daughters to have one last sleepover at the presidential house before the 2017 inauguration. But she ended up getting the teenagers up in the morning while US President Donald Trump was ready to be sworn in as the new leader.

Michelle told CBS: “So anyway, the girls didn’t get up.

“I’m like, ‘Get up and get out of here.’

“And they’re all crying and they have their teddy bears and they’re moving slow and I’m like, ‘You’ve got to get up and get out of this house.’

“So you’ve got tears and I’m pushing people out of freight elevator and my kids are crying.

“I don’t know where they’re going. All of that was happening and the staff was crying.

“And then we had to meet the Trumps, the Trumps show up.

“And I didn’t want to go out and greet them with tears in my eyes because people would think I was crying for other reasons.

“All I had to do for 8 years, watching my husband get raked over the coals, feel like we had to do everything perfectly, no scandal.

She said: “Malia and Sasha couldn’t be more different.

“One shares her innermost feelings, the other is content to let you figure it out.

“Neither approach is better or worse, because they’ve both grown into smart, compassionate and independent young women, fully capable of paving their own paths.”

Michelle added: “Try as we moms might, there’s only so much we can control.

“And, boy, have I tried – especially at first. As mothers, we just don’t want anything or anyone to hurt our babies. But life has other plans.

“Bruised knees, bumpy roads and broken hearts are part of the deal. What’s both humbled and heartened me is seeing the resiliency of my daughters.”

Previously, Michelle told CBS’ Gayle King that she and Barack managed to keep their girls grounded due to their “regular” childhood.

She said during their time in office, her daughters were told to keep focus on where they were going and what they were doing as a result of their father’s prominent role.

The 55-year-old added: “Our focus was to make sure they did what they needed to do, and that meant pretend like all the craziness around them wasn’t happening.”
