Former first lady Michelle Obama went on NBC’s “Today” on Monday to talk about the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
During her NBC interview, Obama described the Trump impeachment as “surreal” and predicted that the United States would come back stronger afterward.
“I don’t think people know what to make of it,” she said. “But do I think we can come back from it? Oh yeah.”
Obama then put Trump’s impeachment in historical perspective.
“We’ve seen tough times in this country,” she said. “You know we’ve gone through depressions and wars and bombings and terrorist attacks, and we’ve gone through Jim Crow, and we’ve always come out stronger. And that’s what we have to continue to believe because what’s our choice? To ball up in a corner and call it a day? Well that’s not fair to this next generation that’s coming before us that are counting on us to get this right.”

Fox & Friends panics over Bolton bombshells: ‘Devastating’ because impeachment trial was ‘on the fast track to closing out’
"Fox & Friends" hosts warned that leaks of John Bolton's book could blow up President Donald Trump's impeachment trial.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade told viewers that excerpts from the former national security adviser's book could force Republicans to hear additional witness testimony, and he fears the Trump administration was at war with itself.
"If John Bolton's lawyers are telling the truth here, and they just submitted (the transcript) in and it's leaked out," Kilmeade said, "if that is indeed the case, more evidence that people within the administration are against the administration."
GOP senators will ignore Bolton bombshell because they ‘just want this over’: ex-White House official
Appearing on CNN's "New Day," in the wake of the New York Times bombshell revelation that former national security adviser John Bolton book blows up the central impeachment defense put forward by Donald Trump's lawyers, former White House press secretary Joe Lockhart said it may not be enough to persuade Senate Republicans to allow witnesses.
According to the Times, "President Trump directly tied the withholding of almost $400 million in American security aid to investigations that he sought from Ukrainian officials, according to an unpublished manuscript of a book that John R. Bolton, Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, wrote about his time in the White House. The firsthand account of the link between the aid and investigations, which is based on meetings and conversations Mr. Bolton had with Mr. Trump, undercuts a key component of the president’s impeachment defense."
