Don’t mess with Michelle Obama!
FLOTUS appeared at a Philadelphia rally Wednesday morning, where she pummeled Donald Trump over his awful debate performance Monday night.
The First Lady railed against Trump for his refusal to apologize for his claims that President Obama was not born in the U.S., a lie that Hillary Clinton attacked him for on Monday.
Mrs. Obama said, “They (the questions) were deliberately designed to undermine his presidency and cannot be blamed on others or swept under the rug by an insincere sentence uttered at a press conference. I think Barack has answered these questions with the example he’s set and the dignity he’s shown by going high when they go low.”
Obama continued, “A president can’t just pop off or lash out irrationally. 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’ll be.”
Trump is now fighting back against the attacks, sending out a statement that says, “While our campaign outlines big changes and bold solutions to make your life better, the Clinton campaign focuses only on small and petty distractions. Never in American history have so many serious challenges been met with so unserious a campaign as the campaign of Hillary Clinton.”
