Kelly Clarkson Defends Michelle Obama's Mention of Slaves in DNC Speech

Kelly Clarkson took to Twitter to praise Michelle Obama for her speech at the Democratic National Convention on Monday night (July 25) and she later defended it as well.

“Damn! Just saw @MichelleObama speech at DNC tonight! That was amazing!! Love her 🎉🎉🎉 #imwithher #clinton,” Kelly initially tweeted.

One of Kelly‘s fans replied to her saying, “I’m not sure I liked the part where she said the White House was built by slaves.”

“Pretty certain the slaves that built it didn’t like it either,” Kelly said in response.

During the speech, Michelle talked about President Obama‘s historic legacy and how they “wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves.”

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.

Melania Trump's RNC Speech Is Strikingly Similar to Michelle Obama's 2008 Speech

Melania Trump showed support for her husband Donald at the Republican National Convention on Monday night (July 18) but her speech sounded pretty familiar to many viewers.

The 46-year-old former model took to the podium to discuss the values she shares with her presidential hopeful husband and used some of the exact same sentences as Michelle Obama did during her Democratic National Convention speech in 2008.

Both women used phrases such as “you work hard for what you want in life” and “your word is your bond and you do what you say.”

Donald‘s campaign later issued a statement about Melania‘s speech saying, “In her beautiful speech, Melania‘s team of writers took notes on her life’s inspirations, and in some instances included fragments of that reflected her own thinking. Melania’s immigrant experience and love for America shone through her in her speech, which made it such a success.”
