Former First Lady Michelle Obama has been attacking the Trumps all week, and now she’s doing it in a pair of $4,000 yellow, high-knee boots.
While speaking to an audience on Wednesday at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn to promote her new book, Becoming, the former first lady wore gaudy sequin Balenciaga over-the-knee boots and a bright yellow dress resembling a bathrobe.
After talking high fashion — something many would never associate with the former first lady — with actress Sarah Jessica Parker, Obama took several shots at President Donald Trump.
She suggested that her husband, former President Barack Obama, faced higher expectations while in office than Trump — and met them.
“Often time, when you’re the first or the only, the bar shifts a lot, right? The bar gets set, you meet it, exceed it, they move the bar, and we’re watching that right now — the bar’s just swinging, and swinging,” she said.
“It’s a totally new bar — never seen this bar before, ever,” she said. “But when we were in office, our bar was very different — not getting indicted, and telling the truth.”
Trump has never been indicted nor has he been charged with any crimes since taking office. Several people who worked for his 2016 presidential campaign have been indicted, but a vast majority of the them pled guilty to financial crimes or making false statements.
Not a single person has been charged with anything related to “collusion” with Russia, which is what Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe is about, not whether someone paid their taxes over a decade ago.
Obama also suggested her husband had a squeaky clean record and was flawless while serving as president.
Someone should inform her of Obamacare, Benghazi, IRS targeting, Fast and Furious, rewriting laws with the stroke of her pen, and spying on journalists.
The former president was hardly scandal free, but largely benefited from a biased media who rarely, if ever, dared to hold him accountable on anything.

The former first lady also attacked First Lady Melania Trump this week.
During an appearance Tuesday on NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” Michelle made numerous snide comments about Trump’s inauguration and insulted the gift that Melania gave to her at the White House.
After fawning over the former first lady and gushing over everything she said, host Jimmy Fallon held up pictures of the Obamas at White House on Jan. 20, 2017 with the Trumps and asked what she was thinking at the time.
“Can you just walk me through what—” Fallon began before being interrupted by Michelle.
“Bye, Felicia,” she said, puckering her lips and laughing with the crowd.
The phrase “Bye, Felicia” means to dismiss someone, sort of like a sarcastic way of telling someone to “go away.”
“And then there was the Tiffany’s box. It was just all, you know — a lot,” she said, making it clear she didn’t care at all about the gift or kind gesture.
Interestingly enough, while Michelle scoffed and claimed Melania “broke protocol” by bringing her a gift, it turns out the former first lady did the same thing in 2009.
Hanna Bogorowski points out on Twitter that Michelle brought a gift in a white box for the Bushes, breaking the same “protocol” for which she derided Melania.
.@KateBennett_DC's newsletter points out Michelle Obama's continued issue with Melania Trump bringing her a gift on Inauguration Day. Michelle said it was awkward because it wasn't protocol. Here she is giving Laura Bush a present on the same day in 2009. https://t.co/JJIz7f0L3m pic.twitter.com/og1YwFMsWY
