You don’t mess with President Obama, and you certainly don’t mess with Michelle Obama. And that’s the message the White House is trying to relay to Donald Trump.
Trump has insulted just about everyone he comes in contact with. Miss Universe? CHECK! Gold Star Family? CHECK! Prison of War and Senator John McCain? CHECK! Could Michelle Obama be next?
Michelle Obama gave a raving speech on Thursday that highlighted Trump’s rhetoric and hate speech, including the way he speaks about women. The White House can see that the First Lady would seem a potential target. Trump, as he always says, loves to punch back. But the White House has warned him not to do that.
While on Air Force One, deputy White House press secretary Eric Schultz said, “I can’t think of a bolder way for Donald Trump to lose even more standing than he already has than by engaging the First Lady of the United States.”
Schultz is obviously correct. But since when has Trump shied away from attacking someone just because it might prevent him from becoming president? Let’s just hope that Trump takes the bait, that would finish him once and for all!
