An impassioned speech was delivered by the first lady, while in New Hampshire for a Clinton rally. Obama stated that the comments that Trump made about women must be taken seriously.
Michelle Obama’s speech is viewed as being a highlight of the Democratic convention and the four-day gathering. The first lady has been recognized as Hillary’s top surrogate, while casting Clinton’s GOP opponent. Michelle views Donald Trump as being an unstable moral leader for the country. Obama took another stab at Trump, at a Thursday campaign event. She was reacting to the recent comments by the Republican presidential nominee, which may be the biggest controversy ever exposed. The 2005 recording was recently released, where Trump is graphically describing how he would grope women. With multiple women making accusations of Trump making unwanted sexual advances, the situation’s controversy continued to grow. Trump has denied accusations from the women.
“Last week, we saw this candidate actually bragging about sexually assaulting women and I can’t believe that I’m saying that a candidate for president of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women”, said Michelle Obama. The first lady went on to say, “I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted.”
She viewed Trump as being disingenuous and dishonest. Obama recommends moving on to the next thing, like everyone has just experienced a bad dream. She also knows that it can’t be swept under a rug and treated like another disturbing footnote about a bad election season.
The first lady went on to say, “I listen to all of this, and I feel it so personally. The shameful comments about our bodies, the disrespect of our ambitions and intellect, the belief that you can do anything you want to a woman – it is cruel, it’s frightening, and the truth is, it hurts.”
There was an increase to 64% of Americans that view Michelle Obama as being favorable, following the remarks that she made at Clinton’s Democratic convention. The numbers make the first lady more popular than any of the presidential nominees. While giving her speech, Obama didn’t have to mention Trump’s name, while asserting that he is not fit for the role of being a role model of the nation.
“This election, and every election, is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives.”
