Michelle: At Times ‘I Wanted to Push Barack Out the Window’

September 8, 2020

In a recent episode of her eponymous podcast, former first lady Michelle Obama discussed her marriage to former President Barack Obama and offered advice to younger couples, explaining that she has, at times, wanted to “push Barack out of the window.”

“There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it’s like, you’ve got to know the feelings will be intense. But that doesn’t mean you quit,” Michelle stated. “And these periods can last a long time. They can last years.”

“You want LeBron [James]. You don’t want the guy, third row on the bench, who didn’t make the team, but we often don’t think about that,” she said, offering advice to those looking for a partner. “What you’re supposed to say is, ‘I have married LeBron. My version of LeBron.’”

“If you’re looking at a team, the people you want to win with, then number one, you want everybody on your team to be strong, right? You don’t want any weak links, you don’t want somebody that you can dominate,” she continued in her forced basketball metaphor.

Many Americans can sympathize, Michelle. We wanted to push Barack out of the White House too.
