We reported earlier on how Michelle Obama made a crazy comment about how there’s no hope now that Trump has been elected.
The Donald has responded.
But he did so in a very surprising and uncharacteristic manner (starts at about the one minute mark):

He actually took the high road!! It was odd. He says that he “honestly believes” that she meant to say something else. I very much doubt that – when he says “I honestly believe” it’s usually followed by something he really doesn’t believe. But in any case, at least he’s trying to not be a complete nutcase.
But I know that this was not an accident by Michelle because she went out of her way to say it – the question that Oprah asked her had nothing to do with Trump. It was about whether she believed Obama gave people hope. Michelle FORCED the answer into an odd insult about comparing Obama’s hope to the hopelessness under Trump. That was not a mistake.
