Michelle Obama Chided for ‘Divorced Father’ Comment

Former first lady Michelle Obama is being taken to task over comments she made during an interview Sunday in which she likened Donald Trump’s presidency to a broken family.

“We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled,” she told late-night talk show host Stephen Colbert during an appearance in London to promote her new memoir “Becoming.” “Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun, but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We’re kind of living with divorced dad.”

Fox News commentator Sean Hannity said the comments were “demeaning and insulting” to divorced fathers who take responsibility for their children.

Fox colleague Geraldo Rivera also took issue with the matter but labeled the comments as a sporadic slip-up.

“She’s equating, she’s reduced us to a sexist stereotype with a bad parent who gives candy and lets the kids watch too much TV because we have a guilty conscience about the breakup of the marriage,” Rivera said in an on-air discussion with Hannity. “I think it’s a rare misstep though, Sean, in fairness.”
