Michelle Obama on Young Barack: ‘He Was a Bum’

Michelle Obama poked fun at President Barack Obama on Tuesday, calling him a bum when he was younger.

“Barack fooled around in high school,” the first lady said on the BET talk-show “The Real” during a session focused on higher education.

“He didn’t take school seriously in high school. He barely got his work done. He was a bum! And it took him a second. He had to grow up a little bit,” she said.

CNN reports:

Michelle Obama said her husband didn’t become serious about his education until he transferred to Columbia University during his second year of college.

Later, asked about any advice she’d give parents of college-bound kids, Michelle Obama offered a similarly blunt response.

“When they get to be 17, you’ll be like ‘Bye Felicia!'” she said to laughter.

About the author

  • Michelle and Barack Obama?

    Aren’t they America’s current *Premier Presidential and Parental First Couple* who in an attempt to inspire young people about becoming educated, thoughtfully invited to our White House an angry rapper who characterizes the *MATERNAL HALF* of our population as less than human ^itches and ^hores unworthy of respect, while rapping about demeaning and denigrating his less fortunate neighbors, or staying high all day long on weed?

    Aren’t Michelle and Barack Obama America’s First Couple WILLFULLY IGNORING America’s expanding and shameful *National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect, aka Poverty*, that for more than thirty years has OPPRESSED and deprived countless American children from experiencing a safe, fairly happy life that Mr. Obama’s new friend and victim of horrific Childhood Abuse and GUN VIOLENCE Kendrick Lamar laments he, his siblings and numerous cousins were deprived of enjoying by their “living wild” violent felon embracing family and community members?

    I’m guessing Mr. Obama has yet to figure out that Child Abuse and Neglect suffered by a substantial population of depressed American children maturing into depressed, frustrated, angry, sometimes suicidal *(NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers)* teens and adults is the reason why many music performers have for more than thirty years characterized our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters, aunts and nieces as ^itches and ^hores.

    Isn’t Michelle Obama the FLOTUS who proclaims her love and adulation for an American music performer who married an admitted Brooklyn drug dealer who never DENOUNCED his ‘people and community’ harming anti-social lifestyle, though Mr. Carter continues promoting and profiting from the Gangsta lifestyle that devastated the lives of many struggling and peaceful Brooklyn, NY residents?

    This is the same Michelle and Barack Obama, correct?
