Obama said the apathy of citizens affected both the midterm elections and the presidential race.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama claimed the lack of voter turnout for Hillary Clinton in 2016 was due to Americans staying at home, which resulted in the election of President Donald Trump.

Obama's new Netflix documentary "Becoming" saw her vent frustrations on Hillary's loss.

The documentary followed the former first lady as she went around the country.

Obama blamed those who sat out the 2016 election, saying the extra votes could have swayed the results in Clinton's favor.

"So, the day I left the White House, and I write about how painful it was to sit on that [inauguration] stage," she said.

"A lot of our folks didn’t vote. It was almost like a slap in the face."

"I understand the people who voted for Trump," she added.

"The people who didn’t vote at all, the young people, the women, that’s when you think, man, people think this is a game."

Obama said the apathy of citizens affected both the midterm elections and the presidential race.

"Every midterm. Every time Barack didn’t get the Congress he needed, that was because our folks didn’t show up," she said.

"After all that work, they just couldn’t be bothered to vote at all. That’s my trauma.”

Higher Ground’s first film, American Factory, won an Oscar earlier this year.

Last month, Michelle Obama threw her support behind her voting rights group, When We All Vote, to expand vote-by-mail options.

The former first lady's celebrity-backed organization is set to announce the support for legislation introduced by a handful of Democratic lawmakers during the coronavirus crisis, Axios reported.

The new legislation allows registered voters to vote by absentee ballot, which makes it easier for voters to obtain mail-in ballots.

Last month, former second lady Jill Biden, said she would "love it" if former first lady Michelle Obama agreed to be vice president.
