July 26, 2016 – Michelle Obama Denounces Donald Trump Hate Speech At Democratic National Convention In Philadelphia

Michelle Obama came after Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump yesterday as she backed Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

“The hateful language… from public figures on TV does not represent the true spirit of this country,”. “Don’t stoop to their level. Our motto is, when they go low, we go high.” – she said, to loud cheers and applause

Mrs Obama’s speech was widely seen as an attack on Mr Trump, although she did not mention the Republican nominee by name.

She said she wanted her husband to be succeeded by “somebody who knows this job and takes it seriously” and that could only be Mrs Clinton.

Five times Michelle Obama referred to Donald Trump:

“When someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level. We urge them [our daughters] to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that this country isn’t great. Issues facing a president cannot be boiled down to 140 characters. Ideal president can’t have a thin skin or a tendency to lash out.”

Because of the Democrats’ candidate, she said, “my daughters and all our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States.”

In other remarks, she praised Mrs Clinton as a “true public servant” who had shown “devotion to our nation’s children” and “never buckles under pressure”.

After her speech, President Obama wrote on Twitter:

“Incredible speech by an incredible woman. Couldn’t be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS [first lady of the United States]. I love you, Michelle.”

    A woman to become the next president of the great America??? Ha! Let‘s see her gets there.

    That‘s all I can say for now. However America is not as cool as England that has a Queen as their paramount leader.
    A mere woman to rule World no. 1 country???

    We are waiting….

    But at the moment, I take a stroll…

    Trump lacks the diplomatic finesse and language of politics. He is paying for his public avowals that sharply indicate his intolerance for moslems and rude inclination to racism.

    As for the US as a whole, two histories are to be made consecutively:

    1) Obama is the first Black president
    2) Hillary, who shall soon succeed Obama, will be the first female president. Two Firsts.

    By the way, what is that sign I see on Mrs Obama’s hands?

    If you a woman can carry a child for 9’months.. Then she can do anything., saying a mere woman is under statement because in reality, women are mentally stronger then men.. It’s only in Nigeria that a woman can’t rule Because of how low Nigerians men sees women. And that’s why our country will never improve.. Na superior” na him dey kill Nigerian people.. Change the way of thinking people.. It’s 21 century..
    Make God help Nigeria..
