Michelle Obama recently said in an interview that she was a “busy single mother.” She went on the clarify the confusing statement, by saying, “You know, when you’ve got the husband who’s president, it can feel a little single, but he’s there.” President Obama told NBC Today Show that there’s indeed some truth to Michelle’s “slip up.” He said, You know, as somebody who has stumbled over my lines many times, I tend to cut my wife or anybody some slack when it comes to just a slip to the tongue. But there’s no doubt that there have been times where Michelle probably felt like a single mom.”

While President Obama was campaigning in 2012, he said that Michelle “was still working and having to look after the girls. And she definitely, I think, understands the burdens that women in particular tend to feel if they’re both responsible for child rearing and they’re responsible for working at the same time.”

I get it. Your husband is the leader of the free world, so sometimes, President Obama just ain’t gonna be home. Why is everyone so up in arms about Michelle Obama feeling like a single mom when she’s married to a man who’s job is literally never done? What do you think?
