Michelle Obama has been criticized for comparing US president Donald Trump to a divorced dad. The former First Lady angered divorced dads during an interview on Sunday to promote her book ‘Becoming’ in London.
The mother-of-two made a statement likening Trump to divorced dads, and divorced dads believe this statement means they are unfit parents who make their children sick.
At London’s O2 Arena, while expressing her frustration over Trump rolling back a number of Barack Obama’s policies, including his transgender policies, Ms Obama said:
“For anyone who had any problems with Barack Obama, let’s just think about what we were troubled by – there were never any indictments. She added that Americans are like children living in a broken home.
“We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled,” she said. “Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad.”
She didn’t explain what she meant by “get sick” but people felt it was an affront on divorced dad and that she was suggesting they do not have what it takes to properly care for their kids.

The Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is the 45th and current president of the United States. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality.
On November 8, 2016, Trump received 306 pledged electoral votes versus 232 for Clinton. The official counts were 304 and 227 respectively, after defections on both sides.
Trump received a smaller share of the popular vote than Clinton, which made him the fifth person to be elected president while losing the popular vote.
Clinton was ahead nationwide by 2.1 percentage points, with 65,853,514 votes (48.18%) to 62,984,828 votes (46.09%); neither candidate reached a majority.
Trump’s victory was considered a stunning political upset by most observers, as polls had consistently showed Hillary Clinton with a nationwide—though diminishing—
lead, as well as a favorable advantage in most of the competitive states. Trump’s support had been modestly underestimated throughout his campaign, and many observers blamed errors in polls,
partially attributed to pollsters overestimating Clinton’s support among well-educated and nonwhite voters, while underestimating Trump’s support among white working-class voters.
The polls were relatively accurate, but media outlets and pundits alike showed overconfidence in a Clinton victory despite a large number of undecided voters and a favorable concentration of Trump’s core constituencies in competitive states.
Trump won 30 states, including Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, which had been considered a blue wall of Democratic strongholds since the 1990s. Clinton won 20 states and the District of Columbia. Trump’s victory marked the return of a Republican White House combined with control of both chambers of Congress.
Trump is the wealthiest president in U.S. history, even after adjusting for inflation. He is also the first president without prior government or military service. Of the previous presidents,
38 had held prior elective office, two had not held elective office but had served in the Cabinet, and three had never held public office but had been commanding generals.
