‘I’m Sick’: Michelle Obama Speaks Out On Wave Of Sexual Misconduct Allegations

During a sold-out speech Thursday evening in Hartford, Connecticut, former first lady Michelle Obama addressed the recent slew of sexual misconduct allegations that have come to light, saying it makes her “sick,” and urged men to do more to “combat harassment and assault.”

“I can’t tell you how sick it makes me, the more I see the uncovering of the truth that all us women know has been out there, that there is an ugliness there,” Mrs. Obama said.

“If we want young women to be strong and have voices and advocate for themselves, then we have to realize how much work we have to do,’’ Obama added, according to People. “And I’m talking to the men out there, who cannot be innocent bystanders and complacent … watching this happen.”

Mrs. Obama also said that her success in life is due to the fact that she was “loved and nurtured and invested in.”

Obama’s comments come as a growing number of powerful men in politics, business, entertainment and beyond face allegations of sexual harassment, assault and other misconduct.

The former First Lady also offered the packed crowd of about 2,800 advice on how to live in the tumultuous Trump era.

Without mentioning the president by name, she said, “Focus on what you can control. Be a good person every day. Vote. Read. Treat one another kindly. Follow the law. Don’t tweet nasty stuff.”
