Michelle Obama Said ‘We Need An Adult In The White House,' Not Trump
You can always count on Michelle Obama to keep it real.
The first lady attended a rally at La Salle University in Philadelphia on September 28. During her speech, she made one thing clear — Donald Trump is severely unfit to be President of the United States.
Michelle Obama started off by comparing the current presidential election to 2008 when President Obama was running,
Transitions like these can be difficult. They can involve a lot of uncertainty. We saw that back in 2008 when Barack was first elected. I don't know if you all remember … but back then, people had all kinds of questions about what kind of president Barack would be. Things like, ‘Does he really understand us?' ‘Will he protect us?'
Since then, questions regarding our country's future have only grown.
Obama then touched on the subject of Donald Trump asking his burning question of whether or not President Obama was even born in the United States. She added,
And then, of course, there are those who questioned — and continued to question for the past eight years — whether my husband was even born in this country.
Yeah, we'll never forget Trump's spiteful birther movement — that's for sure.
And let me say — [these were] hurtful, deceitful questions deliberately designed to undermine his presidency. Questions that cannot be blamed on others or swept under the rug by an insincere sentence at a press conference. Let me take a moment. Because when making life or death, war or peace decisions, a president just can't pop off. Or lash out irrationally. No. We need an adult in the White House.
And finally, the burn we've all been waiting for. The first lady basically said what a lot of people are thinking — Donald Trump is the last person our country should ever trust behind the wheel of our great nation for a wide variety of reasons.
Michelle Obama added,
So if a candidate is erratic and threatening; if a candidate traffics in prejudice, fears and lies on the campaign trail; if a candidate thinks that not paying taxes makes you smart, or that it's good business when people lose their homes; if a candidate regularly and flippantly makes cruel and insulting comments about women, about how we look, how we act — well sadly, that's who that candidate really is. That is the kind of president they will be.
I don't care what side of the fence you're on — she's making a very strong point here.
The 52-year-old first lady wrapped up her speech, concluding,
And trust me, a candidate is not going to suddenly change once they're in office. Just the opposite, in fact. Because the minute that individual takes that oath, they are under the hottest, harshest light there is, and there's no way to hide who they really are.
When you look at the damaging rhetoric and the manner in which Trump has conducted himself with this entire race to the White House, you realize that this is exactly what we'd be dealing with if the Republican presidential nominee were elected for the job.
What you see is what you get.
November 8 shall come soon enough!
