Michelle Obama Tuesday waded into the campaign with an extended, 24-minute lecture calling President Trump racist and saying voters need to check their consciences and vote for Joe Biden
“I want everyone who is still undecided to think about all those folks like me and my ancestors the millions of folks who look like me and fought and died and toiled as slaves and soldiers and laborers to help build this country,” she sad.
“Racism, fear, division, these are powerful weapons. And they can destroy this nation if we don’t deal with them head on . . . Search your hearts, and your conscience, and then vote for Joe Biden like your lives depend on it.”
Trump also screwed up the coronavirus she said, not mentioning that her husband had lucked out that the swine flu that occurred under his watch was not worse – he left us open to it – and that Barack Obama never replenished the stockpile we would need for a pandemic.
Trump is someone who “knew how deadly this virus is, but who lied to us, and told us it would just disappear,” and “doubled down on division and resentment,” Michelle said.
“And yet, even in the face of all this incompetence, Americans keep digging deeper, finding new reserves of strength, doing whatever it takes to get through this,” she said.
