Michelle Obama advice for Meghan Markle

Obama was outlining her view that women can't have equality in both their marriage and professional life at the same time when her potty mouth kicked in. That whole you-can-have-it-all: Nope. Feminists have slammed Sandberg for allegedly downplaying sexism in the workplace and elsewhere and unfairly blaming women for their shortcomings.

The writer and cultural commentator Touré was there, and tweeted that the audience "freaked out" when Obama used the curse word - and that the former first lady herself said she "forgot where she was for a moment". "But I think it can happen sooner than we think". "But sometimes that stuff doesn't work". And I want them to know that Michelle and Barack Obama, who have a phenomenal marriage and who love each other, we work on our marriage.

"People are like, 'Why is she talking about marriage counseling [in the book]?'" she said.


In fifteen words, Michelle Obama responded, definitively: "It's not always enough to lean in, because that s**t doesn't work all the time".

Perhaps Sandberg should take Obama's advice to heart and lean out for a bit.

"Marriage counselling for us was one of those ways where we learned how to talk out our differences", Obama told Robin Roberts in a Good Morning America segment about her book.


'You give me a sense of comfort as being First Lady wasn't the easiest job in the world but I got strength from you so thank you all for that, thanks for giving me that'. Marriage is "two independent individuals trying to come together to build a life, forever". "They mess it all up".

Until then, no matter where Meghan has her baby, we'll be over here waiting for the next Obama and royal baby photo opportunity. Trump "stalked" Clinton on the debate stage in an attempt "to diminish her presence", claimed Obama.

Michelle Obama was honest with her readers during an appearance at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night for her Becoming book tour. "And for this, I'd never forgive him", writes Mrs. Obama in the book.


Per CNN as of Friday Becoming had sold over 2 million copies in all formats and editions during its first 15 days, in the USA and Canada.
