BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Meanwhile, Michelle Obama back in the news. She's doing an interview and then she was asked about Donald Trump. Listen to what she compared the Donald Trump era to. 

[BEGIN VIDEO]

MICHELLE OBAMA: We come from a broken family. We are a teenager where we're a little unsettled and having good parents is tough, sometimes you spend weekends with divorced dad and that feels like it's fun but then you get sick. That's what America is going through. We're kind of living with divorced dad, right. 

[END VIDEO]

KILMEADE: It was a book event with Stephen Colbert. Really divorced dads really have -- are just clueless and insensitive to raising children? Is that really the analogy that she thinks is effective? 

TOMI LAHREN (FOX NATION HOST): Well, I think Michelle Obama is becoming incredibly tasteless, and to use that kind of language to attack the president, I'm not very shocked or surprised by it, but I will say this: Can you imagine if a conservative would compare anyone to single mom in a derogatory fashion? There would be outrage, there would be backlash, it would be all over social media. There would just be mass outrage. But because Michelle Obama is Michelle Obama -- she's a Democrat and she has the last name of Obama -- she can get away with it. But really she's not just belittling Donald Trump, she is belittling all those divorced dads and single dads out there that are doing a great job.
