Michelle Obama Asserts Her Role as America’s ‘Forever First Lady’, Prompting Response from James Woods

James Woods, a conservative actor known for his Twitter presence, has often been vocal about his political views. A memorable instance was when he criticized former First Lady Michelle Obama’s self-proclaimed title of “forever First Lady.” This article delves into the details of this event and its aftermath.

Michelle Obama’s Self-Proclamation

Earlier in the year, Michelle Obama addressed a room full of students, referring to herself as America’s “forever First Lady.” The comment caught the attention of many conservatives including James Woods. The actor is known for not holding back on expressing his views, especially when it comes to liberal ideologies. He promptly responded to the former First Lady, reminding her that her tenure had indeed ended.

The Backstory

Breitbart News reported that Mrs. Obama was speaking at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at a College Signing Day event. The event was attended by several high school students preparing for college and featured numerous liberal celebrities.

The former First Lady used this platform to share her life experiences and struggles with the audience. She recounted how she grew up on the south side of Chicago and faced discouragement from her college counselor when applying for colleges.

Michelle Obama’s Message to Students

Despite facing hardships throughout her life including her time in White House with President Barack Obama, she encouraged the students not to let any doubts deter them from their goals. Affirming belief in their potential for success, she ended her speech by referring to herself as their ‘forever first lady.’

“Shoot, when Barack and I set foot in the White House, it was a struggle. There were a lot of people who told us that we weren’t supposed to be in the White House…I’m telling you, they will doubt you today and they will doubt you for the rest of your life, but you will have some struggle and that’s okay,” she stated.

James Woods’ Response

Woods was quick to respond on Twitter, stating “With all due respect, you aren’t our ‘forever First Lady.’ No one is, nor should anyone be. Pump your brakes a tad.”

Many conservatives share Woods’ sentiment that the Obamas’ continued presence in the political scene is unwelcome. They argue that unlike previous first families who stepped back from politics after their term, the Obamas continue to seek public attention.
