HomePolitical NewsObama: 'Was Hard to Transfer Power to Racist Trump' - 'Put Our Family in Danger' Keely Sharp January 23, 2021 Former first lady Michelle Obama threw a slam fest on Instagram, berating President Donald Trump for challenging the election results instead of conceding to Joe Biden. She accused the POTUS of spreading "racist lies" about Barack Obama, and recounted how they were so "mature" to transfer power to Trump, even though it wasn't "easy." “Donald Trump had spread racist lies about my husband that had put my family in danger,” Obama said. “That wasn’t something I was ready to forgive. But I knew that, for the sake of our country, I had to find the strength and maturity to put my anger aside.” “This week, I’ve been reflecting a lot on where I was four years ago,” she wrote. “Hillary Clinton had just been dealt a tough loss by a far closer margin than the one we’ve seen this year. I was hurt and disappointed—but the votes had been counted and Donald Trump had won.” “The American people had spoken,” Obama said. “And one of the great responsibilities of the presidency is to listen when they do. So my husband and I instructed our staffs to do what George and Laura Bush had done for us: run a respectful, seamless transition of power—one of the hallmarks of American democracy. We invited the folks from the president-elect’s team into our offices and prepared detailed memos for them, offering what we’d learned over the past eight years.” “I have to be honest and say that none of this was easy for me,” she added. Here is the difference, Hillary Clinton conceded and did not challenge the results. Donald Trump knows that the election was crooked and there is evidence of fraud. It is within his rights to challenge the results. Shame on Obama for trying to belittle him for doing so.
