In an interview with Glamour, Rae discussed talking about the show with former First Lady Michelle Obama.

“It was like talking to my auntie,” she explained. “It bums me out that I will never have that feeling again of the first family f*cking with us so hard and getting us.”

“If Melania [Trump] said that to me, I would be like, ‘Well, I guess it’s canceled. We’re not making this show. It’s not ours anymore,'” she added.

A story on the interview by the New York Post‘s Page Six was headlined, “Issa Rae would cancel ‘Insecure’ if Melania Trump loved it.”
