Michelle Obama Is Absolutely Right About "That Lean In Sh**"

Michelle Obama shocks NYC crowd with use of the S*** word

"Marriage still ain't equal, y'all", Obama said.

"So I had all this protocol buzzing in my head and I was like "don't trip down the stairs and don't touch anybody, whatever you do" and so the Queen says "just get in, sit wherever" and she's telling you one thing and you're remembering protocol and she says "Oh it's all rubbish, just get in". And it's not always enough to lean in, because that s**t doesn't work all the time".

During her talk, Mrs Obama also recalled her and President Barack Obama's visit to meet the Queen.

Obama's comments are not the first criticism of Sandberg's approach, which some has said puts the burden on women, rather than widespread policy changes, to solve workplace inequality.

"I'm back now", Obama said, smiling and looking a bit sheepish.

Over the weekend, Obama divulged to an audience at Barclays Center in Brooklyn that leaning in doesn't always work-that sometimes you really can't have it all.

"Are you kidding me?"

"The best advice I can give here is the simplest: I think everyone just has to be themselves", she said.

She encouraged pupils to support each other, saying: 'We as women don't have the luxury of tearing each other down, there are enough barriers out there'.

But Michelle Obama told author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie that it was "ridiculous" to think her husband's administration "was going to erase hundreds of years of history in eight years".

Meghan, 37, launched her first solo project just five months after her wedding, supporting a charity cookbook in collaboration with the Hubb Community Kitchen - a group of women whose area was affected was by the Grenfell Tower fire. Many on the left and media praised her for the outburst.

She said: "I touched her!" People get career counselling, that's ok, but you're trying to meld two lives forever, that is hard and there is no training for it, there is no class. She told the story of a high school guidance counselor who told her she wasn't "Princeton material".

On her father's death: "While his death was sudden, it was always lurking for us because he was the kind of man who wouldn't get help and was proud and he didn't believe in doctors, and he didn't believe in self pity".

Joined on stage by former EGA pupils Winnie Mac and Letrishka Anthony, and Nusrath Hassan, a former pupil of Mulberry School, she said: "Meeting the girls here and the girls at Mulberry reminded me how much courage and talent and hope there is".

Mrs. Obama's memoir touches on the alleged sexism twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced from then-candidate Trump, whom she labeled a "misogynist".

Her marriage and her family, from our outside perspective, are beyond enviable.
