Even when her speech is stolen, the First Lady simply comes through with a greater one.
Last night [Monday, July 25], Michelle Obama addressed the Democratic National Convention (DNC) with an inspiring speech. While touching on such topics as community, representation and role models, Obama’s speech had one driving purpose: to get Hillary Clinton into the White House.
Pushing the vote towards Clinton’s way, Obama showed her support for the female democratic candidate running for presidential. Giving several reasons for endorsing Clinton like her history as a public servant and dedication to the betterment of children, Obama made her decision every clear: “We need to knock on every door, we need to get out every vote, we need to pour every last ounce of our passion and our strength and our love for this country into electing Hillary Clinton as president of the United States of America!”
On top of endorsing Clinton, Obama took advantage of the opportunity and maximized on her platform by addressing Donald Trump’s campaign without even mentioning his name. On several occasion, Obama brought up issues pertaining to that of Trump’s campaign as a way to illustrate what America does not need in a president: “That is what Barack and I think about every day as we try to guide and protect our girls through the challenges of this unusual life in the spotlight, how we urge them to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith. How we insist that the hateful language they hear from public figures on TV does not represent the true spirit of this country. How we explain that when someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level. No, our motto is, when they go low, we go high.”
