Michelle Obama's Take On 'Lean In'? 'That &#%! Doesn't Work'

The former U.S. first lady Michelle Obama, who has written a book called Becoming.

Obama was outlining her view that women can't have equality in both their marriage and professional life at the same time when her potty mouth kicked in.

"I forgot where I was for a moment", said Obama, giving off a laugh after letting out the mild curse word.

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

The former first lady appears to have been disagreeing with a feminist philosophy shared by Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg in her book, "Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead", which encourages women to be more ambitious.

Meghan, 37, launched her first solo project just five months after her wedding, supporting a charity cookbook in collaboration with the Hubb Community Kitchen - a group of women whose area was affected was by the Grenfell Tower fire.

In a 2017 interview with USA Today, four years after "Lean In" first published, Sandberg said that even though women were galvanised, she was not seeing a change in business and politics.

She continued: "Overall, we are not seeing a major increase in female leadership in any industry or in any government in the world, and I think that's a shame".

"Despite waiting in the rain for an hour to get into the Barclays Center, I was just in the same room as @MichelleObama and she accidentally said "shit" and it was wonderful and my life has been forever changed", one user wrote.

She apologized and said. "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".

"I don't wanna be president", she said, as reported by the New York Post. She starts leaning back.' Although couched in terms of encouragement, Sandberg's exhortation contains more than a note of reproach.

Naturally, this makes the former first lady the right person to share some sound ― and sweet ― advice for Meghan Markle as the Duchess of Sussex deals with a whole new global level of fame.

Michelle Obama inadvertently swore at a public event in NY and people seem to be losing their minds in unbridled joy over the outburst.
