Michelle Obama on dealing with difficult times: ‘Don’t tweet nasty stuff’


Former first lady Michelle Obama offered advice this week for those living in the Trump era, saying people should focus on respecting others and not “tweet nasty stuff.”

“Focus on what you can control,” Obama told a crowd of about 2,800 people at The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts in Hartford, Conn., late Thursday, according to the Hartford Courant.

“Be a good person every day. Vote. Read. Treat one another kindly. Follow the law. Don’t tweet nasty stuff.”


While she didn’t mention President Trump by name, the former first lady emphasized the importance of personal interactions over actions taken by whoever occupies the White House.

“The impact of all of us in our everyday lives is greater than anything … that can come from the White House,” Obama said during the 75-minute talk, according to the Hartford Courant.

Trump frequently uses Twitter to call out his political opponents and tout his administration’s successes.

Trump has worked to undo many of former President Obama’s policies, including his signature health-care law, which Republicans have repeatedly attempted to repeal.
