Michelle Obama Says She’s Dealing with ‘Low-Grade Depression’

Michelle Obama - Donald Trump
A lot of Michelle Obama’s depression issues can be blamed on Donald Trump

*While discussing mental health amid the coronavirus pandemic and ongoing protests over racial injustice with Michele Norris, the former anchor of NPR’s “All Things Considered,” Michelle Obama explained that her low-grade depression, as she calls it, is not “Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.”

In part, the former First Lady says she also blames the  Trump administration’s response to current events for her depression:

“I don’t think I’m unusual, in that,” Obama said. “But I’d be remiss to say that part of this depression is also a result of what we’re seeing in terms of the protests, the continued racial unrest, that has plagued this country since its birth.”

I have to say that waking up to the news, waking up to how this administration has or has not responded, waking up to yet another story of a Black man or a Black person somehow being dehumanized, or hurt or killed, or falsely accused of something, it is exhausting. And it has led to a weight that I haven’t felt in my life, in a while,” The Hill quotes. ?? ___________________________________________________ Read more at hollywoodunlocked.com ?: Getty Images __________________________________________________ If you have a tip or suggestion, or want to talk to us about this story, Text the word “TIP” to 1-310-388-6463
