Hell, hath no fury like a woman scorned and boy, oh boy, Donald Trump just pissed off the wrong women.
Former first lady Michelle Obama took the gloves off this Monday weighing in on the controversy currently engulfing the Trump administration’s practice of separating migrant children from their parents at the southern border, citing fellow former first lady Laura Bush’s op-ed attacking the heinous policy.
“Sometimes truth transcends party,” Obama stated in a simple but effective tweet responding to Bush, who shared her op-ed for the Washington Post in her own fiery post.

Former President Obama quickly shared his wife’s tweet, joining the fight against Trump.
It’s rare for Michelle Obama to put her foot down over policy issues, such as the Trump administration’s migrant policy.
She has criticized the administration in the past for their policy which delayed federal rules on school lunches last year but has mostly stayed complacent, perhaps following her family’s famous rule of “we go high when they go low” the Obama’s have always managed to better the country without having to trade insults.
That said, sometimes you just have to call it like you see it.
Obama’s tweet follows after Bush tore into the policy in a powerful op-ed on Sunday, calling it “cruel” and “immoral.”
“I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.”

First lady Melania Trump also struck out against her husband’s administration:
“Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform. She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart,” Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s communications director, said in a statement.
