Michelle Obama Is Sick Of The Chaos And Nastiness In Politics
Michelle Obama is just like us. She’s officially tired of politics and all the nastiness that comes with it. If you thought Mrs. Obama would want to run for president in 2020, she may have just given us her answer again.
The former first lady, who is scheduled to kick off her book tour soon, stopped by Las Vegas to speak at a When We All Vote voter registration rally. She took a moment to empathize with voters, saying that just like everyone else, she’s sick of all of the political chaos and wants to tune it out too.
Trust me, I get it. I get being busy and I definitely get feeling frustrated because, believe me, I am frustrated, too. I am sick of all the chaos and the nastiness of our politics. It’s exhausting and, frankly, it’s depressing. So I understand wanting to shut it all out and… just try to live your life. But here’s the problem. While some folks are frustrated and tuned out and staying home on Election Day, trust me, other people are showing up. Democracy continues with or without you.
The former First Lady drove home the importance of getting out to the polls, despite how draining all of this can be. She even metaphorically emphasized the importance of voting to the young people in the crowd by saying,
Not voting is like letting your grandma pick your clothes out.
