She speaks from her heart and her voice had tears. First Lady Michelle Obama delivered a blistering indictment against Donald Trump yesterday at a campaign event for Hillary Clinton in Manchester, N.H. Though she did not mention the Republican presidential nominee by name, it was clear that the candidate — and
the volley of allegations of sexual misconduct lodged against him by multiple women — were the targets of the first lady’s remarks.“I can’t stop thinking about this,” she said describing lewd remarks the GOP presidential candidate made about women in an unearthed 2005 video.
“Last week we saw this candidate actually bragging about sexually assaulting women,” she said. “I can’t believe that I’m saying that a candidate for President
of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women. I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted.” “I’d love nothing more to pretend that this isn’t happening,” the First Lady continued. “This is not something that we can ignore. This is not something we can just sweep under the rug as just another disturbing footnote in a sad election season.”
