Michelle Obama did not stay out of bed long enough on election night to see Donald Trump pass 270 electoral votes, she said in a recent interview with People magazine.
“I went to bed. I don’t like to watch the political discourse; I never have,” Obama told Peoplein the joint interview with her husband. “I barely did with him,” she added, referring to her husband.
“Once you do what you can do, then you rest easy. It was in the hands of the American people,” she said.
Obama stood by her passionate support of Hillary Clinton during the election, telling the magazine, "anything that I felt about the election I said and I stand by.”
But she reinforced her commitment to help a smooth transition to the new administration so they could be "as successful as they can be."
“This is our democracy, and this is how it works,” she said.
