*Yes, the words that came out of the former first lady’s mouth may sound shocking to some, but when she says she wanted “push Barack out of the window,” she spoke her truth during the most recent episode of “The Michelle Obama Podcast.

Mr. and Mrs. Obama will celebrate their 28th wedding anniversary next month and Michelle spoke candidly about the up and downs of her marriage with guest Conan O’Brien.

“There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it’s like, you’ve got to know the feelings will be intense. But that doesn’t mean you quit,” she said. “And these periods can last a long time. They can last years.”

She went on to say that people should view searching for a partner like assembling an all-star basketball team and that a person should ideally pick the absolute best person to be with.

“You want LeBron [James]. You don’t want the guy, third row on the bench, who didn’t make the team, but we often don’t think about that,” she said. “What you’re supposed to say is, ‘I have married LeBron. My version of LeBron.’”

The “Becoming” author also stressed the importance of giving yourself time to see the person you’re dating “in an array of situations.”

“There’s no magic way to make that happen except getting the basics of finding somebody, being honest about wanting to be with them, to date them seriously, to plan on making a commitment, to date them, seeing where it goes, and then making it happen,” she said.

“You can’t Tinder your way into a long-term relationship,” she concluded.
