Michelle Obama Rips Trump As ‘Clearly In Over His Head’

Michelle Obama makes a moral case against Donald Trump

 

Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention was not just a strong condemnation of President Donald Trump’s record and his handling of the pandemic, but a call to the hearts and conscience of every American who witnessed the chaos of the last four. Years and the desire to do it right.

Reconstructing his role as “closest” – this time to former Vice President Joe Biden on the opening night of the convention – Obama spoke as the wife of the former President who saw it up close ” the enormous weight and immense power “of the presidency. She spoke as a mother trying to teach empathy and instill a “strong moral foundation” in her daughters. She spoke like an anxious American “to see so many people suffer” at a time when the Coronavirus has claimed more than 170,000 lives in the United States and pushed millions of people out of work.
One evening, as several conference speakers, including four Republicans, tried to convince Americans with all their political convictions that they should choose country over party, Obama urged them to choose good over evil. , reminding her audience that she hates politics and asking all of her listeners to shut down the noise and fear and open their hearts. She said those who “know that what is happening in this country is not fair”.

Michelle Obama was silent on Monday night. Having mostly turned away from the political fray during President Trump’s tenure in the White House, she used her prime-time Democratic National Convention venue to file a harsh indictment regarding her policies and ability to lead.

“Donald Trump is the bad president of our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he’s clearly over his head. He can’t realize this moment. just can’t be the one we need to be ours. That’s what he is. ”

The bestselling writer and popular former first lady was closest to the Democrats on the first night of the convention. In a taped appearance sitting in what looks like a living room with a Biden sign behind her, Obama said she “hates politics,” but continued to give the most political and personal speech that night.

She renamed the 2016 Democratic convention slogan line, describing her strategy for responding to then-candidate Donald Trump: “When they go down, we go up.”

Michelle Obama admitted that some were not sure the Democratic Party should stick to this approach. But she defended maintaining her honesty, saying, “Height is the only thing that works, because when we come down, when we use the same tactics to humiliate and dehumanize others, we become part of the awful noise that drowns everything. the rest. We degrade ourselves. Reasons why we fight. ”

“We need to vote early, in person if we can. We need to order the ballots in the mail right now, tonight, send them back immediately and follow up to make sure we get them. Then make sure that our friends and family do the same. We have to take our comfortable shoes., Put on our masks and pack a brown dinner bag and maybe breakfast too, as we have to be prepared to queue all night if we have to. ”

This message can be seen as inconsistent with advice from public health experts warning Americans to socialize during the coronavirus pandemic and avoid crowded places. Joe Biden, 77, has had very few public events and held a few small events with a small number of voters in his state of Delaware or neighboring Pennsylvania.
