Michelle Obama's advice to Meghan Markle: "Take some time"

Former U.S. first lady Michelle Obama discusses her forthcoming memoir titled, "Becoming", during the 2018 American Library Association Annual Conference on June 22, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Earlier this year, Obama was named the world's second-most admired woman, behind Angelina Jolie, in a YouGov poll, but she said she still sometimes questioned if she is good enough.

"I tell young people there are going to be huge chunks of time where you want to push him out the window, just by accident, you don't want him to be irreparably hurt, but never the other way around".

"That's a lie. And it's not always enough to lean in, because that s- doesn't work all the time".

According to Elle, her expletive drew plenty of gasps.

Sociopolitical commentator Touré, who was in the audience, noted that the audience "freaked out" when Obama used the curse word. After many a scandal at Facebook, where she is COO, Sandberg has been dipping in and out of hot water since the New York Times reported that she was involved in a smear of George Soros, a charge Sandberg first denied.

"It is impossible to forget that she, like numerous female friends she quotes, is a wealthy, white, married woman with a 'vast support system, '" wrote critic Connie Schultz for the Washington Post.

Michelle Obama Gives Her Honest Opinion on 'Leaning In': 'That Sh*t Doesn't Work'

Former MSNBC host Toure, who was at the speech, called it a "cute moment" and mocked those who criticized the first lady over it. "'What do you think, honey, should I roll up my sleeves?' These days, I'm more in control of my time".

Sources claim the Duchess of Cambridge told Meghan off for the way she spoke to members of her team at Kensington Palace. Alright, I'm back now. "They cropped up when I went to a high school across town and a college across the country, when I was a young lawyer in a high-rise law firm, when I took a leap of faith and allowed our family to venture into a Presidential race", she said.

However, many argue that "leaning in" can place too much pressure on women to take action instead of pushing for workplaces to change. "I go downstairs and open the cabinet in my own kitchen - which you don't do in the White House because there's always somebody there going, 'Let me get that".

"This was on our last visit and we went to Windsor Castle and we took Marine One, the helicopter, and we landed in a field and we were going to be driven by the Queen and picked up in the auto". I share that with you because we all have doubts in our abilities, about our power and what that power is.

"It did not really sink in that it was her", 11-year-old Emma said.

On social media, Obama's words were met with widespread approval.
