For once, I must agree with the former First Lady. We need some new energy around here.
At least that’s what Michelle Obama said Monday when she visited the Kelly Clarkson Show.
You’ve heard of a Freudian slip. Also called a parapraxis. or “an error in speech, memory, or physical action that occurs due to the interference of an unconscious subdued wish or internal train of thought. The concept is part of classical psychoanalysis. Classical examples involve slips of the tongue, but psychoanalytic theory also embraces misreadings, mishearings, mistypings, temporary forgettings, and the mislaying and losing of objects.”
In other words, even when we say something all wrong, there is a truth to it. And this time, Michelle Obama insinuated that she was a bit exhausted by her husband, Barack ‘Baby Black Jesus’ Obama during the lockdown.
I can’t say I blame her.
Clarkson said, “When I went to the White House, I asked Dr. Biden what is the first thing she would do post-pandemic. So we know you are knitting now. She said, ‘get a martini and fries.’ So what are you going to do after knitting?”
Obama said, “I need to just remind Jill that they actually do have plenty of fries and martinis at the White House. You don’t need to wait. They got it all there. But I think maybe what she meant is that she wanted to have fries and a martini with some makeup on out in a restaurant somewhere. I’m in that same place, too.”
She continued, “The first thing I want to do is get back out in the world. I want to go to a concert. Or I want to go to Broadway. I want to see a play. And I want to be with people. I want to sit in a movie theater. I’m tired of my husband. I have heard everything he has to say, and it’s really fascinating. It really is. But I just need some other energy.”
Clarkson said, “I get it. I just want to go out with my girlfriends to a dinner, have some wine, have a good time.”
If Michelle is really looking for some alternate energy, I have a great suggestion. The former First Lady should hop on board the Trump Train. Because there’s no energy quite as propelling as winning.
Of course, Trump could teach Obama quite a few things. But the truth is, it would be hard to get the greatest president in modern history to confer with such a scoundrel. Still, it would be an entertaining match-up.
I can see the reality TV spinoffs now: Mrs. Obama gets Trumped! A real man to man meeting of the minds.
