Critics balk at Michelle Obama’s claim that she fears her daughters will be targeted by police

Former First Lady Michelle Obama came clean Friday in an interview with CBS This Morning‘s Gayle King, saying that she fears her daughters, Sasha and Malia, will be unjustly targeted by the police because of their race.

It’s a claim some critics are finding hard to take seriously.

“Fear in our hearts”

According to Breitbart, Obama declared at one point during her talk with King that many in the Black community “still live in fear as we go to the grocery store, or walking our dogs, or allowing our children to get a license.”

Asked if her daughters were driving yet, Obama confirmed that they were, but said that “every time they get in a car by themselves, I worry about what assumption is being made by somebody who doesn’t know everything about them.”

“The fact that they are good students and polite girls, but maybe they’re playing their music a little loud, maybe somebody sees the back in their head and makes an assumption,” the former first lady said, according to Breitbart.

Obama went on to insist that she, “like so many parents of Black kids,” has to worry, because “the innocent act of getting a license puts fear in our hearts.”

“Taking to the streets”

Interestingly, a 2016 study from Harvard economist Dr. Roland G. Fryer found that when it came to police shootings, there were “no racial differences in either the raw data or when contextual factors are taken into account.”

However, that didn’t stop Obama from telling King that Black Lives Matter-aligned protesters are “taking to the streets because they have to.”

According to Breitbart, Obama insisted that activists are “trying to have people understand that we’re real folks, and the fear that many have of so many of us is irrational, and it’s based on a history that is just — it’s sad, and it’s dark, and it’s time for us to move beyond that.”

Dumb, evil, or both

Brandon Tatum, a police officer turned political commentator, who is also Black, was quick to criticize Obama in a video released shortly after she made her remarks. Tatum was incredulous at the fact that Obama would “include” her family within the community of “Black people that are afraid of what police officers will do to their children.”

“Either she’s dumb, or she’s evil, or both,” Tatum complained. “There is nobody on planet Earth that has a connected brain stem, that’s genuine to any degree, that will lie and say that their children are in fear of being profiled.”

The pundit said the well-connected Obamas have no reason to fear that their children will die at the hands of police, asserting of the former first lady: “If she were a genuine person, she wouldn’t be talking like this.”

  1. LIFE CHANGING OPPORTUNITY BE an Internet HOME-BASED real Earner.I am just working on my laptop only 3 to 4 hours a Day and earning £47786 a month easily, that is handsome earning to meet my extra expenses and that is really life changing opportunity. Let me give you a little insight into what I do…..

    So I started… >>> http://www.newapp7.com

      1. Michelle Obama was born a biological man named Michael LaVaughn Robinson, then he changed his name to Michelle at 12 years old.
        Barack Obama has referred to Michelle as “Michael” twice on national television, and Michelle has said this in an interview:

        “When it comes to me, they get really, really ignorant. They believe that just because I have an Adam’s Apple that I’m not a real woman.”

  3. This is sooooooooooo extremely fake and full of evil lies! Mike herself/himself is in the big middle of the problem and they are part of the evil deep state that have kept this evil illegal drug and gun running going for many years all to fill their own pockets! More leftists rhetoric. Blah, blah, blah! Patriots and God are on to their tricks and the evil deep state folks are scared to death and running scared.

  4. This race baiting Woman needs to take a long walk into the Atlantic and cool off. She one of the evil people spreading Systemic Bias. The biggest racists in our Country are definitely Democrats. The Leaders are the Biden’s, Obama’s and Clinton’s. They all need to tell each other, Mad Maxine and the Filthy lying MSM to cool it. They are really hurting the Country. Love is better than hate. Wise up.

  5. Mrs. Obama needs to stop with the racism rhetoric. She’s one of the many causing division amongst the people. Somebody needs to put the statistics on white cops getting killed by people of color or black cops being shot by white people and so on. Let’s see how it all plays out. I’d be willing to bet it’s pretty equal.

  6. My guess is that they ARE breaking the law, in some way, be it drinking where they are not supposed to be, driving irresponsibly, or, some other thing that would get them picked up by the police. So, now, Moochelle is just putting her “fears” in place, so, when they are picked up, she can say, “I told you so.”

  7. Yes. if they decide to commit a crime like 80% of the other blacks then she can expect that. But like all other privileged communist democrats they’ll get off.

  8. People like her need to look in the mirror to find why everything becomes racist . They wont let it stop, just keep it going!

  9. This is just part of the racist Obamas continued effort to promote hatred and division between blacks and whites in our country. The Obama administration set racial relations back 100 years during the 8 years of his presidency. I voted for him and now realize it was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made.

  10. She, it, he is a pig. All those guys with earphones and guns will suddenly disappear. Nothing but more race baiting. She, it, he can kiss my backside

  11. I am not sure how you can say that he came clean.As nasty as he and WHO are it would take a truck load of soap to clean up his Nasty ways.
    He is just trying to incite violence and other problems.Why not move to Kenya where BHO can become King,the title he always wanted.

  12. Keep on being a race baiter. I can totally understand why you apparently had a tough time in college like you spew at every speech, however honestly he had nothing to do with your skin color. I believe it had everything to do with your sucky attitude. Get the dam chip off your shoulder. I would suggest you tell you pot smoking daughter to make sure she doesn’t smoke and have anything in the car to get arrested for. Lets face it Michelle you are the racist not the American people. I personally have several black friends who I adore so get off your dam soap box,

  13. Right—— like Obama’s girls are going to be walking around anywhere without protection keeping an eye on them. How dumb do they think we are! Really!

  14. Hey Michelle, tell BLM, to go to CHICAGO !!! That is where most innocent BLACKS are being SHOT and KILLED, that’s right by other BLACKS. So make SURE your GIRLS just stay OUT OF CHICAGO and other BLACK AREAS. Oh, yes one other thing I WAS TAUGHT BY MY PARENTS. OBEY THE LAW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Former linebacker, previously known as Big Mike is not the biological mother The well rewarded parents were renamed as “god parents” Big Mike Oscuma just needs more attention and his need for optics is pathological One not not really requires a degree to read the pathological profile of the Oscumas They are a disgrace to all races and religions

  16. She is just showing how racist she really is . I think the Obama ,s and the Bidens should move to China so they can be WELL TAKEN CARE OF .

  17. Let your Daughters walk the streets and see who targets your daughters, I dont think it will be Police . But you might have to call the Police to see if they can find your daughters. But after what you have said , i do not think they will come.

  18. MO has always played the race card and she is still doing it. STOP THE BS! There are more white people killed by cops than blacks and the stats tell the story.

    ONCE A MORON ALWAYS A MORON= MO especially from someone who married a man who is half black. I THINK THEY TRY TO FORGET THAT AND I BET HIS MOM AND GRANDPARENTS ARE TURNING IN THEIR GRAVES WITH ALL THE RACIST CRAP THESE TWO HAVE PULLED!

  19. What a crock of bull. I fear for my family everyday that a black crack head gang member (check prisons out before they were all let go and the news to see who does the killings) will unload w a stolen weapon of any kind and kill them just because they are white. I am fed up w this ignorant woman and her lowsy husband and their racism.

  20. your offsring are no better thanany one else. if they do something illegal they should be stopped. i know the one likes her alcohol about drugs i really dont know but like everyone else if you ommit the crime you pay the time……they do still have security so why worry. just tell them to cooperate and dont run. that reaction seems to produce wrong outcomes for everyone……..so listen up tell them to be civil. hared to do with your citizens but it is necessary with the law. quit dividing this country with your racists comments and do something positive quite saying you hate america if you dont like it move.

  21. Mrs. Obama needs to relax. Her daughters have been raised to respect Police like most family oriented College kids they will not suffer if they are stopped.
    If people of color continue to make us go back in time with rigidity in stating that “we are in the time of systemic racism” you will start feeling the fear and suffer like the Police. They are working and risking their lives on eight hours and more shifts. There is danger for them no matter what they do and they have children they worry about too. They worry they will be killed and not be able to protect their families. Racism picked up its ugly head when President Obama was in Office. Things were much better, more calm before his term.
