“I wake up in the middle of the night because I’m worried about something or because it’s difficult,” Obama said on Wednesday in her Michelle Obama podcast. “I try to make sure I train, even though there have been periods in this quarantine when I just felt too bad.”
It’s a familiar feeling for many Americans.
She also discussed her frustration with people who refuse to wear masks. “There is almost a limit to our victim and it was about a month and then we were just sick of the virus,” she said. “It was daunting to see so many people tired of staying home because the virus didn’t affect them.”
Obama stressed that “we have been through difficult times in this nation,” “we are at a unique moment in history … We are experiencing something that no one has seen in our lives.”
Her first guest was her husband Barack. The upcoming voices include her mother and brother, late night host Conan O’Brien, and Obama’s top advisor to the Obama White House, Valerie Jarrett.
