Michelle Obama Blames Her ‘Low-Grade Depression’ Partly On ‘Hypocrisy’ Of Trump Administration

Former first lady Michelle Obama claimed that she has been suffering from “low-grade depression” recently, and pinpointed the Trump administration’s response to the nation’s racial problems as a cause.

During an interview on her new podcast with Washington Post columnist Michele Norris, Obama said that, like many Americans, the coronavirus pandemic and the turmoil roiling the nation since George Floyd’s death have led her to some low points.

“There have been periods throughout this quarantine where I just have felt too low,” Obama said. “You know, I’ve gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don’t feel yourself.”

Claiming she has been experiencing sleep disturbances, Obama continued, “I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.”
