Michelle Obama, Americaā€™s favorite White House residentā€”sorry, Barackā€”sat down with that other universal fave, Oprah Winfrey, to talk about her eight yearsĀ as First Lady.

The full interviewĀ airs Dec. 19Ā on CBS, but the network released a short clip today in which Michelle Obama talked, among other things, about how her husband's message of hope contrasts with the way Americans are feelingĀ now that Trump is in office.

ā€œNow weā€™re feeling what not having hope feels like," she said. "That it is necessary. Itā€™s a necessary concept. Barack didnā€™t just talk about hope because he thought it was a nice story. He and I and many believe, what else do you have if you donā€™t have hope?"

It's another sobering message from someone who spent much of the election delivering some ofĀ the most powerful warnings about the kind of person Trump is.

Watch the rest of the clip above.
