Michelle Obama: Now We’re Feeling What Not Having Hope Feels Like

Outgoing First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama sat down with Oprah Winfrey for her final interview as First Lady, which will air Monday night on CBS.

On Friday, CBS This Morning played a clip from that interview. Oprah asked Mrs. Obama if the Obama administration achieved the “hope” that President Obama had run on in 2008.

“Yes, I do,” Mrs. Obama responded. “We feel the difference now. See, now, we’re feeling what not having hope feels like, you know?”

Mrs. Obama answer was a clear attack on President-elect Donald Trump, whom Mrs. Obama actively campaigned against.
