Michelle Obama aptly summed up the state of United States politics on Sunday, while in London to promote her memoir Becoming. She compared Donald Trump to a divorced dad—and implicitly, compared Trump supporters to excitable children who mistakenly thought spaghetti for breakfast every day wouldn’t get old. (The spaghetti in this scenario is white people’s enthusiasm for racism.)


“We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled,” Obama said, according to The Independent. “Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad.”

This feels rude to divorce dads, but I understand her point. You can’t choose your family, but you can choose the next president, and that, if nothing else, is a reminder to vote! Just not for Divorced Dad.
