Former First Lady Michelle Obama on Wednesday knocked President Donald Trump and the "new bar" set by the investigations plaguing his administration.

Speaking at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Mrs. Obama—on tour promoting her memoir, Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama—talked about what it felt like to be part of the first black family to live in the White House.


"Oftentimes, when you're the first or the only, the bar shifts a lot, right?" Mrs. Obama told Sarah Jessica Parker.

She continued:

"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. There is a totally new bar—never seen this bar before, ever, But when we were in office, our bar was very different—not getting indicted, and telling the truth."

Watch below:

Shortly thereafter, Mrs. Obama said her joke "is going to be reported on—'Michelle Obama throwing shade,'" she said. "These are just facts!"

Nailed it.

For some, Mrs. Obama's remarks struck a personal chord, as racial disparity still very much exists.

The Obamas are missed.

Still going high.

President Donald Trump replaced former Acting Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats with longtime Trump ally and ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell. The move came after Trump rebuffed Coats for announcing Russia's ongoing attempts to interfere in the 2020 election.

Grenell was deemed vastly unqualified for the position, to the point that officials had to assure Americans that the new Director of National Intelligence would be announced soon.

Trump said he was considering his longtime ally in Congress, Representative Doug Collins (R-GA), for the position...but there's just one problem.
