Michelle Obama says she was visibly shaking for 30 minutes after Trump's inauguration

Michelle Obama recently admitted that she was left visibly shaking with rage and hysteria for 30 minutes after Trump was inaugurated in 2017.

In her latest podcast episode, Michelle declared, “I cried for 30 minutes straight — uncontrollable sobbing — because that’s how much we were holding it together for eight years.”

The former first lady claims she began crying uncontrollably right as her family was leaving Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: Her comments come around the same time as she is attempting to promote her book “The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times”.

Her new statement, however, contradicts her previous statements regarding how she felt on Inauguration Day.

In 2018, while on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Michelle Obama described Inauguration Day much differently and never mentioned she cried.

Per the Washington Post:

Laughter erupted inside the New York City studio after “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon asked Michelle Obama what was running through her mind as she waved goodbye on Inauguration Day in 2017.

“Bye, Felicia,” Obama cheekily replied of the moment that marked the end of her family’s time at the White House and the beginning of the Trump administration.

That was in December 2018, when Obama was promoting her first book, “Becoming.” Now, four years and another book later, the former first lady is offering a more serious assessment of the emotions she felt on Jan. 20, 2017, the day Donald Trump became president.
