New York: The United States’ First Lady Michelle Obama has said that she never shares her opinion on the President’s policy, even if she has something to say.
Michelle, who during an interview opened up about adjusting to life in the White House, said that she ‘rarely’ sets foot into the President’s offices to weigh in on her husband’s decisions, and often stays mum when they’re at home, too.
“In a job like this, the last thing the president of the United States needs when he walks in the door to come home is someone drilling him and questioning him about the decisions and choices that he’s made,” Michelle told ABC News.
“There are definitely times when I may feel something, but I’ll hold back because I know he’ll either get to that on his own or it’s just not time,” she added.
The First Lady insisted that she steers clear of influencing her husband’s policy, opting instead to champion her own issues, such as the fight against childhood obesity and her work with military families.
“I rarely step foot in the West Wing. In fact people are shocked when they see me there. I rarely walk in that office because the truth is he’s got so many wonderful advisers. He’s got a phenomenal cabinet,” the report quoted Michelle, as saying.
“He’s got people who are in the trenches on these issues every single day and I’m kind of stepping in and out and I’ve got my own set of issues. So I don’t even have the kind of expertise and the time in to be able to provide the kind of advice and guidance that he’s already getting,” she added.
