Michelle Obama is an attractive, healthy and wealthy, Ivy-league educated celebrity, wife, mother, and former First Lady of the United States.
And, according to award-winning actor James Wood, she may also need a slightly thicker skin.
Obama recently made headlines by complaining about some of the rough treatment she received as FLOTUS.
According to Vox:
While her husband gets most of the credit for breaking political glass ceilings, Obama was a trailblazer in her own right as the first black first lady. Speaking to her time in the White House, Obama revealed that the role opened her up to criticism that often veered into full-on racist insults. In short, punching through all those glass ceilings came at an emotional price.
“The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” she told a crowd. “Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color.”
