"I feel they are choosing the politics over helping others", she said. The reporter did follow-up on the First Lady's comment by noting that some in the audience might react by saying "you need to stand with women". "You can not just say to somebody, 'I was sexually assaulted or you did that to me, ' because sometimes the media goes too far and the way they portray some stories, it's not correct".
