"We need to support them, and you know, also men, not just women".

She says when there are accusations there needs to be "really hard evidence" and accusers should "show the evidence".

She refused to name names, but said: 'It's sad to see that organizations and foundations that I want to partner with chose not to because of the administration, ' says the First Lady.

Her comments come just days after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh faced a controversial confirmation process after he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in 1982 during a high school party. He has called them all liars.
