Michelle Obama: Craig Robinson reveals their mother's reaction to meeting Barack Obama for the first time
Former first lady Michelle Obama and her husband Barack Obama are among the most influential political figures in the US and in the world. In an episode of Michelle’s podcast, her brother Craig Robinson revealed their mother’s first impression when they met the future president for the first time.
Michelle and Craig recalled the time before her husband would go on to become the 44th president of the United States about how their family was supportive of Barack’s aspiration to run for office. Looking back at when Michelle’s family first met the future president, Craig recalls their mother Marian Robinson being impressed with him, saying that he was “kinda good looking.”
“You drove up in your nice black Saab, and you were driving of course, and then he got out of the passenger side, and I remember the first thing mom said, ‘Ooh he’s tall, he’s kinda good looking,’” recalled Robinson.
Craig then noted that he was initially wary of Barack at first, saying that it was because there were a few guys that his sister dated that he did not particularly like. “But for the most part, your decisions on who to date were solid, just being able to, judge people, and develop your own relationships, and be able to navigate that, at a young age, and you were usually pretty short term dating.”
Michelle then opened up about the doubts she once had about their future, especially as it was before Barack would ultimately win the election in 2008. Obama would become the first African-American president of the United States. The former first lady shared how Craig had given her assurance that things would work out.
The former first lady also spoke out against the civil unrest and the protests happening in Kenosha, Wisconsin following the shooting of Jacob Blake. Blake, a Black man, was shot by a police officer and although he survived, he is paralyzed from the waist down. Michelle released a statement, expressing her devastation towards the shooting that occurred towards Blake.
Michelle also condemned the shooting of three protesters in Kenosha by 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse. The former first lady then urged Americans to vote as a way to push for change.
