Michelle Obama is no fan of Sheryl Sandberg’s "Lean In" manifesto

Michelle Obama weighs in on the idea of 'leaning in': 'That s--t doesn't work' - NY Daily News

Former first lady Michelle Obama gave her very candid opinion Saturday on the idea that women can "have it all" when it comes to work and family.

Obama on Monday returned to the inner London girl's school she first visited nine years ago to talk about her life and the importance of education and working hard at school. As the song "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours' blared out of speakers, the excitement in the room was palpable".

While Obama has not criticized Trump directly at events to promote her memoir, she does criticize him in the book. I share that with you because we all have doubts in our abilities, about our power and what that power is.

"Barack doesn't play games - and that's a very attractive quality".

"That's a lie", she said.

Michelle Obama has however cancelled book tour stops in Paris and Berlin to attend the funeral of former United States president George HW Bush, who died Friday aged 94. "Love doesn't fix brokenness".

"I still feel that at some level I have something to prove because of the colour of my skin, because of the shape of my body ... who knows how people are judging me". So he was very focused and very self-aware.

Over the weekend, Obama divulged to an audience at Barclays Center in Brooklyn that leaning in doesn't always work-that sometimes you really can't have it all. Marriage is a lot of work, and it should be. "It ain't equal. I tell women, that whole "you can have it all" - mmm, nope". "I have never been a fan of politics and my experience over the past 10 years has done nothing to change that". "And I'm like, duh, marriage is hard, it is hard". To get a Harvard law degree, I was in debt.

Obama, 54, said she was surprised as anyone when her husband was elected the first black president, taking office in 2009 - especially because when "he was elected he looked like he was 12" - and hopes were high. "It just means that it's hard, what we are trying to do is shift culture", she added.

"My advice to young women is that you have to start by getting those demons out. Try something else, you're good at so many things'". I've served on corporate boards, I've been at G summits, I've sat in at the UN. "She's smart and amusing and honest", Obama said, noting that her husband is an especially strong admirer partly because the queen reminds him of his grandmother Toot. They found a way to keep that flame lit. "I am not saying that there are no talented people out there". What do you need?' - and I made myself toast. "I thought we were at home, y'all".

Obama also shared one of her biggest fears from her time as first lady: falling over on-camera and becoming a meme. "It takes some time and it takes some maturity".

The author and mother-of-two advised the Duchess to "take some time" finding her feet. "You have to eliminate the people who do not add value in your life".

The Queen's comment was said to have been made when US President Barack Obama and his wife arrived at Windsor Castle by helicopter in 2016. That's ridiculous. To think that that would happen. We are putting down markers and we make progress. The crowd of course went wild with Obama realness and the tongue slip.
