Michelle Obama delivered a powerful speech at the Democratic National Convention, Monday (July, 25) which put Donald Trump to shame, made an impressed Bill Clinton utter “wow”, and made several members of the crowd actually shed tears.
Mrs Obama who spoke in support of Hillary Clinton said during her 15-minute speech, “Clinton has the grace and the guts to keep coming back and put cracks in that highest and hardest glass ceiling until she finally breaks through, lifting all of us with her. That is the story of this country. The story that has brought me to this stage tonight.”
“The story of generations of people who have felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation but who kept on striving and doing what needed to be done so that today I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves and I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent black young women, playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.”
During her elocution, she also took a jab at Donald Trump by saying, “I want someone with the proven strength to persevere. Someone who knows this job and takes it seriously. Someone who understands that the issues a president faces are not black and white and cannot be boiled down to 140 characters.”
The crowd got into a frenzy as they knew she was referring to Trump and his love for the characters in Twitter.
Obama continued, “Because when you have the nuclear codes at your fingertips and the military in your command, you can’t make snap decisions. You can’t have a thin skin or tendency to lash out. You need to be steady and measured and well informed.”
She added that thanks to Hillary Clinton, her daughters and everyone in the world now know that a woman can be the president of the United States.
“So don’t let anyone ever tell you this country isn’t great, that somehow we need to make it great again because this right now is the greatest country on earth,” the first black first lady stated.
“And as my daughters prepare to set out into the world, I want a leader who is worthy of that truth, a leader who is worthy of my girls’ promise and all our kids’ promise.
A leader who will be guided every day by the love and hope and impossibly big dreams that we all have for our children.” Michelle Obama reiterated.
Michelle Obama’s support of Hillary has moved the Democratic presidential candidate up a notch.
It just might translate to higher numbers during the election in November.
