There are new reports that suggest nasty rumors about former First Lady Michelle Obama are resurfacing again. Even though Michelle has been keeping a rather low profile and has no plans to run for the upcoming election – despite what some pundits might say – she’s still getting attacked by online trolls out there. Here’s what you need to know.
Nasty Rumors Resurface About Michelle Obama
According to MSN News, there are some people out there who think that Michelle Obama is a “trans woman” and no, we did not make that up at all. Podcaster Jason Whitlock even dedicated 124 minutes of his life on conspiracy theories about Michelle and whether or not she’s a transgender woman who is attempting to keep her identity a secret from the public. If that weren’t enough, former NBA player Royce White even made some eyebrow raising comments about Michelle’s gender. The podcast even went over Michelle’s physical features and speculated on whether or not Michelle is the real mother of her two daughters. An associate professor by the name of Newly Paul, said, “These claims will likely not go away. They seem rooted in spite, sexism, and racism, which fact-checks cannot cure.”
And even though Michelle Obama keeps being the target of these very nasty rumors and allegations, she’s not letting it get the best of her. Back in August, Michelle opened up about how she manages her self-doubt, fear and anxiety and admitted that she does struggle at times. According to People, she put it this way, “Everyone was searching for some answers of how to cope. And for some reason they were asking me, ‘What do you do?’ I had to start thinking about that.”
Michelle Obama Is Keeping Her Head High
She continued, “… Over the 58 years that I’ve lived, I can look back and I can say, this is how I deal with fear. These are the things I say to myself when I need to pick myself up. This is how I stay visible in a world that doesn’t necessarily see a tall Black woman. This is how I stay armored up when I’m attacked. The book is that offering.”
Now, as far as these rumors are concerned, Michelle has never addressed them and at this point, it doesn’t seem like she will.
