Michelle Obama reveals why she will Never run for Office during her First Public Speech since leaving the White House



Former United States first lady Michelle Obama spoke during the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 on April 27, 2017, in Orlando, Florida. This marked Michelle Obama’s first public speeches at the Orlando Conference since leaving the White House.

During the appearance, the 53-year-old former First Lady made it clear that she has no plans of running for office in the future.

According to her, “It’s all well and good until you start running, and then the knives come out. Politics is tough, and it’s hard for a family … I wouldn’t ask my children to do this again because, when you run for higher office, it’s not just you; it’s your whole family. Plus, there’s just so much more we can do outside of the office because we won’t have the burden of political baggage.”

During the conference, she also spoke about adjusting to life after the White House and discussed her goals for the future and causes she hopes to support. Michelle Obama also talked about the need to stop violence against women while also improving healthcare access.

    You can tell she is a family first person. She once turned down working in a top law firm the one where she met obama because she thought the hours were crazy whereas some of us would literally kill for such spots.

    There are some people you may never meet in life but you just love their personality. This woman is one of those people for me. Just love her
    One of the reasons why I just love this woman..?
    “…………Plus, there’s just so much more we can do outside of the office because we won’t have the burden of political baggage.”
    She is so full of wisdom!

    I just wish americans allowed obama utilise his maximum potential, damn that man had foresight, good judgement and a vision…then his wife omg! I think she is even more incredible than him…politics and racial prejudice constantly raring their ugly heads and pushing resourceful people away from good leadership

    Her children are grown, she can do whatever she wants.

      Being grown does not offer immunity from hurt (which will be inevitably dished out copiously)

    Glad she doesnt intend running for office , one Obama 8 year term was enough…..she needs to move on now….and with the rates they charging for a daily talk ….they dont have to work….msybe they should think of opening a charity for something or other… keep them busy looking after needy kids and hopefully stop trying to grab the news headlines….they are done …get on with life for goodness sake.
