Michelle Obama Urges Donald Trump To Put the Country Before His Personal Feelings Like She Did in 2016 | 22 Words

Michelle Obama has spoken out amid this year's divisive presidential election, and she has a few stern words for Donald Trump following his outrageous behavior...

Many people are well and truly tired of this year's explosive presidential election...

Including Michelle Obama, it seems.

The former first lady has taken to social media to address Trump's continuing efforts to block the transition of power...

And she's not a happy bunny.

Michelle's statement has solicited a huge reaction...

Comments came pouring in, and it seems many are feeling the same way.

Now, of course, we all know Trump has been making claims of electoral frauds after suffering a loss against Joe Biden.

And has been doing everything in his power to challenge the result.

It seems as though Trump was clearly feeling the heat throughout the entire election...

As the counts went underway, he tried to temporarily stop vote-counting in Michigan and Pennsylvania, States where Joe Biden was projected to win.

He also called for a recount in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania...

And then went on to threaten legal action against any State wherein Biden had won.

Trump's reaction to Biden's win has been nothing short of outrageous.

Though the president is a historically sore loser – he’s very rarely had to admit defeat ever in his life – and has long made wild accusations against the Biden campaign team, people simply cannot believe his refusal to accept what has happened.

Amid frenzied Twitter rants and conspiracy theories...

It's quite obvious he isn't planning on conceding defeat anytime soon.

Many people are tired of his refusal to accept his loss and to adhere to the peaceful transition of power.

Including the former first lady, Michelle Obama.

Michelle took to her Instagram account yesterday with a few words for the president...

And she didn't hold back.

Michelle began her lengthy post by explaining how she had been reflecting on where she was 4 years ago.

"This week, I’ve been reflecting a lot on where I was four years ago. Hillary Clinton had just been dealt a tough loss by a far closer margin than the one we’ve seen this year," she wrote.

"I was hurt and disappointed—but the votes had been counted and Donald Trump had won."

"The American people had spoken. And one of the great responsibilities of the presidency is to listen when they do."

Michelle went on to explain how she and Barack maintained a "respectful" transition of power.

"So my husband and I instructed our staffs to do what George and Laura Bush had done for us: run a respectful, seamless transition of power—one of the hallmarks of American democracy. "We invited the folks from the president-elect’s team into our offices and prepared detailed memos for them, offering what we’d learned over the past eight years."

She continued.

"I have to be honest and say that none of this was easy for me. "I have to be honest and say that none of this was easy for me. Donald Trump had spread racist lies about my husband that had put my family in danger."

Michelle explained that while she wasn't ready to forgive Donald Trump, she knew she had to put her anger to one side.

"That wasn’t something I was ready to forgive. But I knew that, for the sake of our country, I had to find the strength and maturity to put my anger aside."

She continued:

"So I welcomed Melania Trump into the White House and talked with her about my experience, answering every question she had—from the heightened scrutiny that comes with being first lady to what it’s like to raise kids in the White House."

"I knew in my heart it was the right thing to do—because our democracy is so much bigger than anybody’s ego."

"Our love of country requires us to respect the results of an election even when we don’t like them or wish it had gone differently—the presidency doesn’t belong to any one individual or any one party."

The former first lady is deadset that Donald Trump is a threat to democracy.

"To pretend that it does, to play along with these groundless conspiracy theories—whether for personal or political gain—is to put our country’s health and security in danger."

"This isn't a game," she says.

"So I want to urge all Americans, especially our nation’s leaders, regardless of party, to honor the electoral process and do your part to encourage a smooth transition of power, just as sitting presidents have done throughout our history."
