Fox News host Tomi Lahren mocked Michelle Obama on Monday after the former first lady revealed she “stopped even trying to smile” during Donald Trump’s inauguration.
“Michelle Obama wrote she was unable to put on a happy face and smile during President Donald Trump’s inauguration. That’s okay, we all smiled watching you and your husband vacate the White House. Bye!”

Obama reveals in her new book “Becoming” that the celebratory feeling from her husband’s two inaugurations was gone when Trump was sworn into office on Jan. 20, 2017.
“Someone from Barack’s administration might have said that the optics there were bad, that what the public saw didn’t reflect the president’s reality or ideals, ” she wrote, according to an excerpt obtained by ABC. “But in this case, maybe it did.”
“Realizing it, I made my own optic adjustment,” she continued. “I stopped even trying to smile.”

This isn’t the first time Lahren has attacked Michelle Obama.
Back in September, Lahren disputed Obama’s claim that America “had a great president” under her husband.
“Michelle Obama said we ‘had’ a great president. By what measure? Not in economic growth. Not in border enforcement. Not in strength on the world stage. Sit down, Michelle,” Lahren wrote on Twitter.

Twitter quickly shot back:
Still no mention of Trump not visiting Arlington cemetery on Veterans Day……. nice to see your patriotic conviction only extends towards black athletes.

She's smiling all the way to the bank with her sold out book tour. I doubt she's worried about what a low level FOX buffoon has to say. BTW the President Obama left office as the 12th greatest President, Trump will leave as the worst and most corrupt!

That's merely because you're a time proven idiot, Tomi. Is the "we" you're referring to the voices in your head encouraging you to be even more blatantly incompetent in the hopes of landing a full-time gig on Faux News instead of their "streaming" option?

And your hero's approval rating is now a dismal 38%. Which means a lot of folks in the GOP don't like his lying ass either https://t.co/dwY0bsuh3P
