Michelle Obama, the wife of former US President Barack Obama has revealed on her podcast Tuesday she’s suffering from a low-grade depression as a result of coronavirus quarantine, the racial strife and the hypocrisy of the current administration led by Donald Trump.
“These are not, they are not fulfilling times, spiritually,” she told journalist Michele Norris during The Michelle Obama Podcast as quoted by USA Today News.
“I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.”
Michelle was a key part of her husband’s successful campaign and time as US President, and served as a role model for women and worked as an advocate for poverty awareness, education, nutrition, physical activity, and healthy eating.
