I’m like Benita Butrell nobody bet not say nothing bad about Michelle! I don’t have anything negative to say about her like Benita says about Ms. Jenkins. I can see myself as her actual friend, I listen to her and absorb her as if she’s my personal life coach and mentor. I’m ignoring all the jealous naysayers because they’re sad and pitiful and they only wish they could be this incredible. I love you Michelle and your children and your husband. And specifically to deraild77, I’m 100% convinced that you are a pitiful excuse of a human being and if toe to toe with FFLOTUS you would cower like the ignorant insignificant coward that you are. I hope life slaps you in the face with busted asphalt.
