Former First Lady Michelle Obama says the supporters at Trump's inauguration were 'not reflective' of America

Former First Lady Michelle Obama unloaded on Donald Trump and his supporters during a weekend interview, blasting the crowd at the president's inauguration as "not reflective" of America.

Mrs. Obama made the remarks on Saturday evening while speaking to Gayle King at Essence Fest in New Orleans.

Obama slammed the diversity of Trump's audience, claiming they "made sure that the crowd looked like all of America" during Barack's inauguration by inviting more "people of color."

The ex-FLOTUS spoke about how emotional she was during Trump’s inauguration after having to move her family out of the White House.

She described the presidential residence as the only house her two children had really known.

After moving out of the home to make way for the new first family, Obama admits she was feeling resentful at having to attend President Trump inauguration ceremony and listen to “that speech.”

“Then to sort of sit at that inauguration and to look around at a crowd that was not reflective of the country,” Obama said, describing the crowd of Trump's supporters.

“It was just such the opposite… During Barack’s inauguration, we made sure that the crowd looked like all of America.

"Having the Tuskegee airmen, having civil rights folks, having folks who had marched.

"You could look out at his crowd and you would see America. All of it.”

Obama claims she was just “one of a handful of people of color” during the inauguration proceedings, describing it as “a lot; emotionally.”

“And I had to sit in that audience, one of a handful of people of color, and then listen to that speech, and all that I had sort of held on to for eight years, watching my husband get raked over the coals, feeling like we had to do everything perfectly, no scandal, no nothing,” she said.

“It was a lot; emotionally.”

Obama added that she felt exhausted after eight years of maintaining a standard that had to be “better than perfect to even be considered equal.”

“So by the time I got on the plane, it was a release of eight years of having to try to show up, as we all know we have to do, we have to show up not only perfectly but a little bit better than perfect to even be considered equal,” she said.

“And it was an exhaustion - of eight years of that.”
