Michelle Obama is no fan of Sheryl Sandberg’s "Lean In" manifesto

Michelle Obama Gets Frank About Women ‘Leaning In’: ‘That Sh-t Doesn’t Work All the Time’

Michelle Obama got all riled up while speaking on inequality in marriage during a NY stop for her live book tour, even using a four-letter word to make her point that taking charge in family life - or "leaning in" - doesn't always work for women.

"Like me, Meghan probably never dreamt that she'd have a life like this, and the pressure you feel - from yourself and from others - can sometimes feel like a lot", Obama told Good Housekeeping magazine in an interview before embarking on a worldwide book tour for her best-selling memoir Becoming.

Obama quickly caught herself even as the crowd burst into cheers and applause, "I thought we were at home, y'all", she said. "I forgot where I was for a moment!", she said.

"Tattoo it on my body!" one Twitter user wrote about Obama's words.

Kensington Palace Comments On Alleged Feud Between Kate Middleton & Meghan Markle!
During a public appearance last Thursday, Kate ignored negative rumours with sweet words about Harry and Meghan's baby. Kensington Palace is said to have launched the hunt for the source of the leaks, according to the Mail on Sunday.

Sandberg argued in her 2013 book "Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead" that women can "have it all" if they work hard enough and have peer support. She went on to make several other appearances after that, and even recently embarked on her first worldwide tour, all taking place in under a year.

"That's a lie", she said.

Perhaps Sandberg should take Obama's advice to heart and lean out for a bit. I was gettin' real comfortable up in here. It spawned a nonprofit bearing the same name founded by Sandberg and hundreds of "Lean In" circles, groups of women who meet regularly to discuss Sandberg's advice. "Lean In has the potential to be an important book if a wider range of women than those reflected in its pages start hashing out Sandberg's best ideas. It is hard. I love my husband, and we have a great marriage, and we've had a great marriage, but marriage is hard work". "As much as I wish that could happen in four years, I don't think that's a likely time period but I think it can happen sooner than we think". Both professionally and personally, she is an idol to so many of us, but in her book, she details how she and Barack Obama went to marriage counseling, and she spoke at Barclays about finding balances of power.

However, the fantastic Michelle Obama has given Meghan some pretty awesome advice.
