Michelle Obama Dismisses Popular Feminist Advice: 'That S*** Doesn't Work'

Michelle Obama, who has already sent shockwaves across Twitter with revelations about the White House while promoting her book Becoming, has now revealed something about the woman in power from across the pond.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has extended her hand of support to the Duchess of Sussex and offered some valuable advice about handling the spotlight, by drawing on her own experience after entering the White House with her husband. "It ain't equal. I tell women that whole "you can have it all" - mmm, nope, not at the same time, that's a lie".

Naturally, Michelle Obama also said that Meghan has a great opportunity to make a difference, given her position.

After realizing she swore, the author, 54, apologized: "I forgot where I was for a moment!".

And Obama announced yesterday that she was cutting short her European tour to return to the USA for the funeral of the former U.S. president George H.W. Bush on Wednesday.

"Truly, for me, if there is anyone out there who sees a different possibility for themselves as a young person - changing a life, saving a life in some circumstances - that really is what I'm most proud of".

One newsmagazine suggested he was a "wimp", but his work-hard, play-hard approach to the presidency won broad public approval. George Snr was admitted back into hospital the day after Barbara's funeral when an existing infection spread to his blood.

The ethnically diverse school, which Obama visited in 2009 on her first official trip to Britain, has around 60 languages spoken among its 900 female pupils.

The Queen reminds Barack Obama of his grandmother, his wife said last night as she provided insights into the bond between the British royals and the former presidential couple. "You guys gave me a sense of comfort". Both professionally and personally, she is an idol to so many of us, but in her book, she details how she and Barack Obama went to marriage counseling, and she spoke at Barclays about finding balances of power. "I'm like, 'Duh.' Marriage is hard, you know". All right, I'm back now.

"Of course your head is spinning because first of all I'm trying not to fall, which is a major thing that I think about in public".

"It's become glaringly clear in these past weeks that, far from merely balancing work, life, and gendered expectations, women working in industries from glamorous-seeming Hollywood to crowded restaurant kitchens have been navigating a brutal minefield of harassment, abuse, and inappropriate behavior - not to mention plain old sexism and bullying - in order simply to keep their jobs, never mind advance in their careers", she wrote. "What's inspiring to me is that so numerous young women I've met are triumphing in incredible ways". They also said the two women had formed a strong bond "and planned to stay in contact".

Her advice to the Duchess of Sussex is simple: don't rush. "They're like, 'What's that?' And I'm like, 'Yep, we're in the real world now, fellas'".
