Former First Lady Michelle Obama opened up about how she has been feeling this year, and it’s been particularly hard for her on an emotional level as she revealed she has been suffering from depression. And, of course, Trump supporters cruelly responded.
One out of every three Americans is currently suffering from depression as the coronavirus pandemic rages on. Over 160,000 Americans are dead and that number is set to double by December.
In addition, racial injustice continues to plague our nation and Donald Trump has not done a single thing to address the issue, nor has he done anything to deal with the pandemic.
It’s no wonder then why Michelle Obama is fighting depression right now, which she talked about earlier this week.
“I’m waking up in the middle of the night because I’m worrying about something, or there’s a heaviness,” Obama said. “These are not the fulfilling times, spiritually. I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.”
Indeed, Trump has only exacerbated both problems while blaming anybody but himself for his failures.
In response to Michelle Obama’s remarks, Trump supporters hatefully attacked her.
Michelle Obama is suffering from depression!?
What an insult to individuals who actually have this terrible disease.
She should be ashamed of herself to blame President Trump for her attention seeking announcement.

From 2009-2016 I did too! She blames Trump for hers, I blame her husband for mine during his term as president! See, we can have common ground 😉 https://t.co/CxmCPm6bKC

Conservatives tend to be more joyful overall because we still believe in the pillars of society, including the church and the family.

Michelle Obama revealed today that she is suffering from depression. Maybe it was the $80 million Netflix deal and the $25 million dollar book deal that pushed her over the edge. Or, maybe she’s faking it just to get off that Joe Biden possible VP list. #MAGA #KAG

Poor Michael is depressed. Let’s all be nice and try to actually give a damn. https://t.co/xKUozr4M4l

If Michelle Obama is suffering from depression it’s because she knows she belongs in prison along with her husband.

.@MichelleObama says “quarantine,” the “racial strife” and the “hypocrisy” of the Trump Administration are “dispiriting,” giving her “some form of low grade depression.” The Obamas have good health, daughters in good schools, net worth $130mil, $12mil pad in Martha’s Vineyard… pic.twitter.com/GxS6rzJc0Q

You can have everything good in this world and still suffer depression. You can also have all the money in the world and still be depressed. It’s a fallacy to believe that people who have money are happy all the time. Obama empathizes with those who are suffering from the coronavirus and racial injustice, problems that Trump has the power to tackle but refuses to do so.
The Obamas have also never committed a crime, so saying she belongs in prison is pure hatred. And the Obamas have made it quite clear over the years that they are better Christians than Trump or any of his cult followers will ever be.
If anything, Trump supporters are demonstrating that they are racists and will kiss their dear leader’s ass no matter what he does and have no clue how depression works.
