The just-released Time 100 list of the year's most influential people includes Michelle Obama, who is now on a European tour in support of her bestselling memoir, Becoming. "That's what America is going through, we're kinda living with a divorced dad".

When I first met her, I was embraced by a warm, regal, confident woman who possessed a reassuring calm, on the eve of President Obama's historic first Inauguration.

She took a swipe at President Donald Trump - and single dads - during an event in London on Sunday.

Speaking during his opening monologue on "Hannity" Tuesday night, Sean called-out former First Lady Michelle Obama after she bizarrely compared the Trump Presidency with living "with a divorced dad".

Ms Obama added she did not hesitate to discuss President Trump in her book which has sold more than 10 million copies and may become the most popular memoir in history. Beyonce also honored her work both in and out of the White House, and praised her as a role model.

But the former first lady doesn't seem to be too keen on single fathers.

She said: "This may feel like a dark chapter but any story has its highs and lows but it continues".

"We've had tougher times with more to fear", she told Colbert.

"We have always come out at the other end - better and stronger", she said. "We are just in the throes of the uneasy path of change".

"I am so grateful that my daughters and my son live in a world where Michelle Obama shines as a beacon of hope who inspires all of us to do better and to be better", the mother of three concludes.

The US Muslim lawmaker also accused Trump of stoking right-wing extremism, a development she said was not presidential and benefiting of commander-of-chief.
