WASHINGTON, D.C. – For the past four years, former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama have given a sign of what’s to come under the Presidency of Joe Biden. The Obamas lurked in the shadows during the Trump Presidency, throwing barbs and rallying support, but after Wednesday’s debacle at the U.S. Capitol, the Obama’s reinsertion into the national spotlight changed from a supportive role to a husband-wife executive role.
In that role, the Obama’s now are making requests and pushing their political agenda once again, and now, some are actually listening.
The Obamas are now the lead ambassadors of the “Putting America Back Together” movement.
Michelle Obama called the thousands of protesters in Washington D.C. nothing more than gang members lead by President Donald J. Trump.
“Like all of you, I watched as a gang—organized, violent, and mad they’d lost an election—laid siege to the United States Capitol. They set up gallows. They proudly waved the traitorous flag of the Confederacy through the halls. They desecrated the center of American government. And once authorities finally gained control of the situation, these rioters and gang members were led out of the building not in handcuffs, but free to carry on with their days,” Michelle Obama said. “The day was a fulfillment of the wishes of an infantile and unpatriotic president who can’t handle the truth of his own failures. And the wreckage lays at the feet of a party and media apparatus that gleefully cheered him on, knowing full well the possibility of consequences like these.”
