Yesterday, the entertainment news outlet “Extra” published a sit-down with Michelle Obama. There were some interesting nuggets from the interview. We’ve decided to break it down into the top four.
1. On the president’s poor debate performance two weeks ago:
“You know, I think my husband has done a phenomenal job, not just in the debate, but in the last three and a half years as president. I’m always so proud of what he’s done. … And we’re also seeing the gains because of that leadership. We’re seeing an economy that’s recovering from the brink of collapse, we’ve got wars coming to a close, our young people — more of them — can afford to go to college, we have health care reform for so many millions of people who’ve gone without health care.”
2. “He’s not just a candidate, he’s still leader of the free world, and knowing what is coming on and off of his plate in the course of a day would astound you.”
3. Regarding Tuesday’s debate: “I know he’s going to do well.”
4. On young people getting to the polls: “Voting is the most powerful, non-violent tool for change that we have in this country.”
