Michelle Obama Gets Personal During Democratic National Convention Speech

Michelle Obama shares a smile while speaking at the 2016 Democratic National Convention on Monday evening (July 25) at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Penn.

The 52-year-old First Lady of the United States shared her support for Hillary Clinton, while taking on Donald Trump in a sly way.

“Don’t let anyone ever tell you that this country isn’t great. This, right now, is the greatest country on earth,” she said, in reference to Donald‘s campaign slogan.

Michelle later opened up about her daughters Malia and Sasha and the first time she sent them to school with the secret service at 10 and seven-years-old, respectively.

“I saw their little faces pressed up against the window and all I could think was, ‘What have we done?’…How well we managed this experience could truly make or break them,” she explained.

Michelle added, “We urge them to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith. We insist that the hateful language they hear from public figures on TV does not represent the true spirit of this country.”

After her speech, her husband Barack tweeted his support for her.

    «What have we done?»

    Right question: what have you and your pathetic husband done to this country? You’ve ruined everything you touched. You represent the most violent, hateful, low educated, unemployed and criminal demographic group of this country. You and people like you are the problem!

    This country at it’s lowest in most aspects. All your husband and his corrupted whore Clinton have done is just a huge amount of damage beyond repair to the world and to this country. You didn’t solve any problem, but created new ones.

    Facts. Obama / Clinton gov. have been using Chinese / Russian models of dealing with problems. If you can’t deal with the real problem – just change statistics numbers to «fix» it. If you can’t deal with a serious problem – just create a new one, to distract attention. etc. Every major problem in the world for the past many years is a result of Obama / Clinton’s actions.
