WOAH! Michelle Obama Takes Swipe at “RICH KIDS” During Speech at Black School in Atlanta (Video)

First Lady Michelle Obama spoke at Booker T. Washington High School, a predominantly black school, in Atlanta on Monday. During her speech a student fainted. Obama paused her speech to make sure the child was attended to, then she took a weird swipe at “rich kids.”

White House Dossier posted the transcript:

MRS. OBAMA: But here’s the thing –- even if you’re working hard and doing everything right, there will still be times when things don’t go according to plan. That ever happen to you all?

STUDENTS: Yes….

(student faints)

MRS. OBAMA: Are you all still fired up and ready to — are you listening to me?

STUDENTS: Yes!

MRS. OBAMA: Do you hear what I’m telling you?

STUDENTS: Yes!

MRS. OBAMA: Because I’m giving you some insights that a lot of rich kids all over the country — they know this stuff, and I want you to know it, too. Because you have got to go and get your education. You’ve got to.

So, does this apply to her own rich kids?
