Former first lady Michelle Obama likened her husband's presidency to having "the good parent" at home at a women's leadership conference on Thursday.
At the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston, Obama appeared to take shots at President Trump's administration in remarks first reported by local TV station WBZ.
The Obama administration “was like having the ‘good parent’ at home," the former first lady said. "The responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time."
“And now we have the other parent,” Obama added. “We thought it’d feel fun — maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day and stay up late and not follow the rules.”
During the wide-ranging discussion, Obama also offered praise for Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee and the first woman to secure the nomination of a major U.S. political party.
