David Remnick of the New Yorker published an exclusive interview with OBAMA revealing some inside details of occurrences “Inside a stunned White House as the President considers his legacy and America’s future.”
The interview reveals how the President explained the post-election Trump win to his two daughters, “What I say to them is that people are complicated,” Obama said.
According to Remnick as detailed in the article, Obama explained further to his daughters that:
“Societies and cultures are really complicated. . . . This is not mathematics; this is biology and chemistry. These are living organisms, and it’s messy. And your job as a citizen and as a decent human being is to constantly affirm and lift up and fight for treating people with kindness and respect and understanding. And you should anticipate that at any given moment there’s going to be flare-ups of bigotry that you may have to confront, or may be inside you and you have to vanquish. And it doesn’t stop. . . . You don’t get into a fetal position about it. You don’t start worrying about apocalypse. You say, O.K., where are the places where I can push to keep it moving forward.”
