For many tourists who don’t have tours arranged to get into the White House the Visitor Center provides a wonderful alternative opportunity to see and learn more about the People’s House.
I enjoyed meeting so many different people from all over the country at my #booksigning in DC yesterday, thank you coming to see me and purchasing #entertainingatthewhitehouse just in time for Christmas!

Becoming- Michelle Obama -
- 📚Rating: I just want to be more Michelle -
- 📚Why I listened to it: This was my first dive into the audiobook world. I have heard such amazing things about this book since it was published and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to hear her story narrated in her voice
- 📚Highlights: This book is the autobiography of Michele Obama, travelling from her earliest childhood memories to just after she has left the White House. I previously knew very little about her upbringing and her life before politics, and the story is fascinating and incredibly empowering. She is a truly impressive person, and I admired her personal values and that of her tightly knit family. Her discussion of what it was like to be a black woman in America – aiming for Ivy League universities and subsequently attending them was eye opening. I feel embarrassed for not realising quite how much she had achieved before Barack was elected. My favorite aspects of the story were her honesty and also her conviction about the projects she worked for. Her passion for her work with children really shone through the narrative. It was also interesting to hear about the realities of living in the white house – with the security guards, never being able to open a window, and having every outfit you choose scrutinised. She is also frank in her discussions of what she had to give up for a life in politics and how tricky those decisions were. Having finished the book I cannot wait to see what she does next. -
📚Summary: Just go and listen (or read) – but would really recommend the listen #audiobook #becoming #obama #michelleobama #firstlady #femaleauthors #femaleactivist #becomingmichelleobama #flotus #audible #audiblebooks
#NEW The First Couple hosted Christmad reception at the @WhiteHouse last night. |December 13, 2019. ✨🎄
When Obama first became president I disagreed with "the other side" hating him. I was in college, studying social studies, & eager to be a participating citizen in our great nation. Democracy means THE PEOPLE decide. At least that was what I learned. And I agreed that the people made the right choice in choosing Obama. Twice.
When it was time to move on from those eight years, I made a promise to myself. If Trump became president I would offer him the same respect as I wish others would have offered Obama. Even though I was terrified a crude reality TV star would be running our country, he deserved a chance.
As we know - Trump won.
I shat myself.
But then I sucked it up. I acknowledged that Trump was my President. Psychology, my other area of study, provided me insight to do so. It was the will of THE PEOPLE. Because I believe in our people. I believe in our country. And I assumed others would do the same.. They did not.
That's when it started. The utter nonsense of it all clicked. Slowly I started to learn more. Much more.
To be transparent, I was always a "conspiracy theorist" and folks chuckled when I'd say "Bu$h did 9.11" or "the Titanic was planned." That little sliver of truth I had tucked away was always there. Ready. Waiting. Learning. Unlearning.
If you ever wonder how someone could go from one side to the other... this. 🔝🔝🔝 I still don't like the idea of sides. In a perfect world their would be conversations and not sides. There is no one size fits all. BUT, with SO much at stake - color me red. #savethechildren

When did it become okay to make fun of an Extraordinary person, bringing major awareness to the subject of Climate Change And who just happens to have Aspergers For the President to continue these insensitive, bigoted and bias behaviors is beneath the Dignity of American Values. Our currency in America says, "In God We Trust". I certainly don't think God would appreciate the hurtful & disrespectful pettiness of Trump to one of God's truly special lights of the World. May God bless and keep Greta in His Powerful Protective Holy Spirit filled hands in Jesus Mighty Name Amen 🕊💙🎄🎉🧸 #Repost @abcworldnewstonight
