Former first lady Michelle ObamaMichelle LeVaughn Robinson ObamaThe Hill's Morning Report - Report of Bolton tell-all manuscript roils Trump defense Michelle Obama wins Grammy for audio recording of memoir Obama portraits leaving National Portrait Gallery to tour museums across the country MORE called the impeachment of President TrumpDonald John TrumpWarren: Dershowitz presentation 'nonsensical,' 'could not follow it' Bolton told Barr he was concerned Trump did favors for autocrats: report Dershowitz: Bolton allegations would not constitute impeachable offense MORE "surreal" in an interview Monday, but argued the nation can certainly come back from it. 

“It’s surreal, I think, because the last impeachment hearing, a lot of young people weren't around for that, so this is all new. I don’t think people know what to make of it,” she said in an interview with NBC’s “Today.”

“But do I think we can come back from it? Oh yeah,” Obama said.

America has seen tougher times before, she added, noting economic depressions, wars, terrorist attacks and the Jim Crow era. 

“And we’ve always come out stronger and that’s what we have to continue to believe, because what’s our choice? To ball up in a corner and call it a day? Well, that’s not fair to this generation, the next generation … that are counting on us to get this right,” Obama said. 

“It’s not an us or them, it’s not an R or a D, we are all here as part of this country,” Obama added. “We all want the same things, it’s just sometimes that gets lost in the noise.”

Obama spoke to NBC's Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush, during a trip to Vietnam, where Obama is raising awareness about educating young girls as part of her Girls Opportunity Alliance. 

More of the interview with Obama will air tomorrow on "Today."
