Prior to President Tump’s inauguration in January, the Obama’s enjoyed all of the perks of living in the White House and the presidency. It was clear that the couple enjoyed the power trip. For 8 years, she believed she was royalty and when the time came for the Trump’s to move into the White House, it was clear Michelle was having difficulty adjusting to her new private life. Michelle used to enjoy the perks of being First Lady and loved attending major events and gatherings. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case.
When Michelle first caught wind of the news that Prince Harry was marrying Meghan Markle, she assumed that she would receive an invitation to the spectacular event. The Queen of England has the final say on who is invited, and evidently, Michelle wasn’t on that list. So, in a desperate attempt to be in attendance, Michelle tried to sneak a spot on that exclusive guest list, but when the Queen found out what Michelle Obama did, she delivered a brutal beatdown that was definitely deserved.
When the news first broke that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were getting engaged, the Obama’s immediately tried to gain the royal family’s attention in order to ensure they received an invitation. Upon hearing the news, Barack beat Trump to the punch by going on Twitter to congratulate the happy couple. It almost appeared that Obama was stalking Prince Harry due to how quickly he responded to the news.
According to Page Six:
Michelle took the opportunity to make fun of President Trump then immediately gushed over the queen. Both conversation deviations had no place in an event like this, but for calculated Michelle, it has a passive-aggressive purpose of saying that Trump wasn’t fit for her guest list, but since she loves the Queen so much, she should get a spot.
“After being introduced by Canada’s first lady, Sophie Trudeau, Obama told the crowd that it is ‘never a good idea’ to put your first thought in the morning on social media, and never a good idea to ‘tweet from bed,’ which appears to be one of the President’s favorite pastimes, presuming that he is actually in bed when he tweets at 3 a.m,” Page Six reported.
“Going on about effective communication, and the importance of doing drafts, Obama went on, ‘Then you need to edit and spell-check it.’ The 45-minute conversation, hosted by the Economic Club of Toronto, flowed into a bunch of amusing side stories, including her memories of being awestruck when meeting Queen Elizabeth of England.”
“’What do you do with the queen? I touched her. She touched me first,’ she said, adding that her dream dinner guest would be Jesus, whom she’d serve pizza.”
It’s well known that the respect, proper etiquette, and holding a high-level of decorum is important to the royal family and by painting a picture that Trump can’t control himself, Michelle thought she was making him look like a bad person to have at the wedding. However, the bigger motive in her comments was to cover up her actual faux-pas with the Queen when, not surprisingly, brash Michelle showed a complete lack of respect and protocol when she got a little too touchy with her bullying her way into a hug and pushing her toward a chair, The Guardian previously reported.
The Queen felt so disrespected by Michelle that she royally snubbed the former first lady after the touchy-feely offense. When Michelle flew into London with her mother and daughters in tow expecting an audience with Queen Elizabeth, she received a big slap-in-the-face instead, the Globe reported. Instead of spending the day with Michelle and her family who flew in to meet with her, the Queen ditched her and went off the horse race instead.
For many years the Obama’s showed little respect for anyone, and now that they are no longer in the spotlight, Karma is coming back to bite them in the butt. Michelle may think that she is royalty, but she just learned a very valuable lesson. The Queen of England did the right thing, and no one deserves it more than the Obama’s do. What do you think about the Queen’s action?
