Former First Lady Michelle Obama took a cheap shot at First Lady Melania Trump during an appearance on NBC’s “Tonight Show.”
Host Jimmy Fallon asked the former first lady how she felt as she left Capitol Hill during President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
“Bye Felicia,” Obama blurted out.
The pop culture phrase is used as a “goodbye” to someone you strongly dislike.
Then, as if her rude remark wasn’t enough, she then made a face when talking about the moment Melania Trump gave her a gift during the inauguration.
Melania “had given her a Tiffany’s box containing a ‘lovely frame’ – which she received in front of the cameras, pulling a face indicating it had caught her off guard,” the Daily Mail reported.
Watch the moment below:
Michelle Obama’s cheap shots at Melania Trump’s expense weren’t received well by many, including famous liberal Piers Morgan.
“Just when I thought there was one person in public life that soared effortlessly and admirably above the incessantly ugly partisan trash-talk that pervades every second of American airspace these days, Mrs Obama has let me down,” Morgan wrote. “And frankly, she has let herself down too.”
He added: “Appearing on last night’s Jimmy Fallon show, Michelle inexplicably decided to plunge the bitchy knife firmly into the back of her successor as First Lady, Melania Trump…”
Being the classy first lady she is, Melania Trump has not responded or hit back after the cheap political snipe.
