Michelle Obama likens her upbringing to that of impoverished Senegalese children:
See, like many of you, I didn’t grow up in a family with a lot of money.
I suppose I should give her a break — she’s just trying to connect with some children — but I find this offensive. No one in America faces the kind of poverty that poor children face in the third world. Michelle Obama comes from a working-class family without many luxuries, but with food on the table. For these children, her upbringing would be like winning the lottery.
