Appearing at a Women’s Summit in Los Angeles, Michelle Obama criticized other women for allowing President Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
The former First Lady said she’s “concerned about us as women and how we think” in light of the results that ushered Trump into the White House.
“What is going on in our heads where we let that happen, you know?” she added.
Obama proceeded to say that Hillary lost because other women held her to a higher standard than men.
“If we as women are still suspicious of one another, if we still have this crazy, crazy bar for each other that we don’t have for men,” she babbled on, “if we’re not comfortable with the notion that a woman could be our president compared to … what, then we have to have those conversations with ourselves as women.”
In other words, all women should have voted for Hillary – Not based on ability, platform, or accomplishments, but solely because she is a woman.
It is offensive to suggest that all women should have voted for Hillary, simply because she is a woman. This is NOT enough to get my vote.
A lot of women are very empowered, educated & have a strong mind. That's why they DIDN'T VOTE for Hillary.https://t.co/seP61wep1x

We thought the Democrat party was supposed to be about empowering women, not demanding that they all think exactly alike. Maybe Michelle needs to sit down and read some of Kanye’s tweets.
Conservative actor James Woods responded to Obama’s assinine comments in a fiery message.
“You didn’t ‘let’ anything happen,” he retorted before explaining the nuances of the election process to her.
“The citizens of the United States, through the power of the Constitution, duly elected a President of their choice,” Woods said. “May come as a shock to you, madam, but the People speak in America.”
“We don’t do what you ‘let’ us do.”
Someone’s going to need some ice for that burn.
