We adore First Lady Michelle Obama because she always calls it like she see’s it, so I wasn’t surprised when she called Republican Nominee Donald Trump a sexual predator after a whole host of women have come forth to say that Trump touched them, sexually assaulted them, even raped them.Michelle is campaigning in New Hampshire where she refuses to name Trump by name, only referring to him as “Hillary’s opponent” and appropriately dubbing him “intolerable”.
Via RealTimePolitics: Obama has been one of Hillary’s most effective, impassioned campaigners. She never uses Trump’s name in her stump speeches, but spent an unusual portion of time today talking about the corrosive effects of “hatred and fear” and political candidates “who brag about sexually assaulting women.”
MICHELLE OBAMA: “I can’t believe that I’m saying that a candidate for president of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women.”
MICHELLE: “Too many of us are treating this as just another day’s headline. As though our outrage is overblown or unwarranted. As though this is normal, just politics as usual. But this is disgraceful, this is intolerable… None of us deserve this kind of abuse.”
MICHELLE: “If this is painful to us as grown women, what do you think this is doing to our children?” she asked. “What lessons are they learning about their values as professionals? As human beings?About their dreams and aspirations?”
Watch this from Michelle Obama on the Trump tape. It is quite something. “It has shaken me to my core” pic.twitter.com/ke3LrPrwna
