Former first lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday any woman who did not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 "voted against their own voice."

In a question-and-answer session at Inbound, a marketing conference in Boston, Obama also said both she and former President Barack Obama support President Donald Trump and want him to be successful, Boston.com reported.

"What does it mean for us, as women, that we look at those two candidates . . . and many of us said, 'That guy? He's better for me. His voice is more true to me,'" she said of the election, the Washington Examiner reported.

"Well, to me that just says you don't like your voice. You like the thing you're told to like."

She said the unique perspective she gained from her time in the White House helped her see how difficult it is to lead "when you have a peanut gallery of people who don't know what they're talking about, second-guessing what you do."

"We want the sitting president to be successful because we live in this country," she said, the Examiner reported. "He is our commander-in-chief. He was voted in. We may not like it, but it happened."

She also pushed back at critics of Obamacare, saying "the Affordable Care Act isn't Barack's legacy. It's the country's legacy,” Boston.com reported.
