What exactly is a “first lady?” You get some special status because you are married to the President? I don’t think anyone ever voted for Michelle Obama. So it seems to me that you should not get any public platform for the fact that your spouse did. Can anyone name the partners of Teresa May or Francois Hollande or Vladimir Putin without looking them up?
You got rid of the Royal family many years ago in America. Why do you insist on manufacturing a new one every time you have an election. Michelle Obama’s job was to smile and keep her mouth shut and she couldn't even manage that.
