Former First Lady of United State, Michelle Obama has said that men are ‘entitled and self-righteous’ because women protect them too much.
huffingtonpost report that,Michelle Obama understands the importance of having a good group of girlfriends. If anything, she just wishes that her husband Barack had more friends to speak with.
“I love my husband, and he is my rock, but my girlfriends are my sanity,” she said at the Obama Foundation summit in Chicago on Wednesday. The former first lady said that all the stress, security and craziness that came with living at the White House for eight years made her need her girlfriends even more.
Speaking at the first Obama Foundation international summit on Wednesday, Obama who was one of the event’s headliners said that men are raised to be babies and protected by women, who were brought up to be strong.
In her words: ‘It’s like the problem in the world today is we love our boys, and we raise our girls,’ Obama said.
She continued: ‘It’s powerful to have strong men, but what does that strength mean? You know, does it mean respect? Does it mean responsibility? Does it mean compassion?’
‘We raise them to be strong, and sometimes we take care not to hurt men – and I think we pay for that a little bit.
‘Are we protecting our men too much so they feel a little entitled and self-righteous sometimes? But, that’s kind of on us too as women and mothers, as we nurture men and push girls to be perfect.’
“Y’all should get you some friends,” Obama joked. “And talk to each other, because that’s the other thing [women] do — we straighten each other out on some things, our girlfriends.”
‘Talk to each other, because that’s the other thing [women] do – we straighten each other out on some things, our girlfriends,’ she said.
she said,“I think women, we do it better than men,” Obama explained. “Y’all should get you some friends! Get you some friends and talk to each other ’cause that’s the other thing we do, we straighten each other out on some things, our girlfriends.”
Michelle joked that she wanted Barack to build up a bigger group of friends and she thinks that all men could stand to be a little more open and honest in their friendships together.
“I just wish sometimes [with] Barack, it’s like, ‘Who are you talking to?’ And it can’t just be Marty [Nesbitt, Obama’s best friend and board chair of the Obama Foundation],” she said. “I see a lot of men laughing, but y’all need to go talk to each other about your stuff, because there’s so much of it, it’s so messy! Just talk about why you all are the way you are.”
“My girlfriends have been there for me through all kinds of life transitions over the years – including a pretty big one recently! – and we’ve done our best to stay healthy together,” Michelle wrote on Instagram in June.
If Barack is in need of more guys to talk to, we’d say it’s a safe bet that Joe Biden is always around to hang out and continue the pair’s White House bromance
