Michelle Obama’s DNC speech Monday night took the country by storm, as news outlets and social media spread the news of her inspiring words like wildfire. People all over the world are still talking about the First Lady’s speech, including President Obama.
Michelle gave the Democratic National Convention a much needed reality check when she said:
“I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my two black daughters playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.”
That statement alone could have stolen the show, but Mrs. Obama had much more to say. It is rare that the FLOTUS takes an opportunity to badmouth Donald Trump, but then again, she didn’t exactly say his name:
“The issues a president faces are not black and white, and cannot be boiled down into 140 characters. Because when you have the nuclear codes at your fingertips and the military at your command, you can’t make snap decisions. You can’t have a thin skin or the tendency to lash out.”
“Don’t let someone tell you this country isn’t great — that we need to make it great again, Because, right now, this country is the greatest country on Earth.”
Conservatives were, of course, distraught over the audacity of the FLOTUS’ beautifully sentimental speech. Republicans took too Twitter to trash-talk Mrs. Obama.
So naturally, the President had to step in and back up his lady. President Obama tweeted this last night.
Incredible speech by an incredible woman. Couldn’t be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle.
