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.
