Former First Lady Michelle Obama has spoken out against female Trump supporters, saying they, “voted against their own voice.”

Speaking at the Inbound 2017 conference in Boston, Obama said, “Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice.”

She continued, “What does it mean for us as women that we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, that guy, he’s better for me, his voice is more true to me,”

“Well, to me that just says you don’t like your voice.”

“You like the thing you’re told to like.”

Despite her comments against President Trump, Obama went on to say that she wants him to be successful.

She said, “We want the sitting President to be successful because we live in this country.”

‘He is our commander in chief, he was voted in.”

Obama’s comments come after Hillary Clinton spoke out about female Trump supporters.

Speaking to MSNBC’s Joy Reid about how she felt seeing female supporters wearing t-shirsts “that used the b-word, the c-word about you”, Clinton said, “When I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves.”

“Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace?”

“In community setting?”

“Do they not see the connection there?”

“And I think that’s one of the problems with sexism.”

“We have such a public and still an on going movement to expand civil rights.”

“Again, I’m proud of the progress, but we still have a lot of problems we have to confront.”
