Michelle Obama: “Donald Trump Is The Wrong President For Our Country”

So if you take one thing from my words tonight, it is this: if you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can; and they will if we don’t make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it.

Former first lady Michelle Obama didn’t mince words Monday night. After mostly staying out of the political fray during President Trump’s tenure in the White House, she used her prime-time Democratic National Convention slot to deliver a blistering indictment on his policies and ability to lead.

“Let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is,” Obama said.

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

She reprised her 2016 Democratic convention tag line, describing her strategy for responding to then-candidate Donald Trump: “When they go low, we go high.”

Obama acknowledged that some weren’t sure the Democratic Party should stick with that approach. But she defended staying true to it, saying, ” ‘Going high’ is the only thing that works, because when we go low, when we use those same tactics of degrading and dehumanizing others, we just become part of the ugly noise that’s drowning out everything else. We degrade ourselves. We degrade the very causes for which we fight.”
