Michelle Obama bites back at Trump in emotional speech

First lady Michelle Obama has just delivered what many are calling the most powerful speech of the election and her career.

Standing in front of a room full of hundreds of people, Michelle spoke for 25 minutes about Donald Trump’s lewd remarks about women and his bragging about groping and touching them whenever he wanted.

Her face was shaky throughout the speech as the emotion behind her words became clear.

“I can’t believe that I’m saying that a candidate for president of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women,” she said.

“I can’t stop thinking about this — it has shaken me to my core.

While there have been many comments made about the leaked recording of Trump bragging about kissing and groping women without their consent, Michelle’s speech brought many people to tears.

“I feel it so personally,” she said to the packed audience.

“It’s like that sick, sinking feeling you get when you’re walking down the street minding your own business and some guy yells out vulgar words about your body, or when you see that guy at work that stands just a little too close, stares a little too long so you feel uncomfortable in your own skin.”

At the same time Michelle was delivering her speech, Trump was speaking at his own rally where he brushed off the controversy and accused the women who had come forward to say he groped them of lying.

The controversy surrounding the leaked recording as divided many, with some saying he was joking around in private and others saying it proves he is not fit to run the country.

What are your thoughts on Michelle’s speech? Do you agree with her? Would you vote for Trump?

    No one’s brought up about Bill Clinton & his treatment of women. I see Hillary is still with him so she must condone it

      Actually you are wrong on several counts. Trump did bring up Bill Clintons affairs, and of couse it was in the paper, etc continually at the time. Hillary went through a lot, and she found she was able to forgive him, and who knows what goes on inside a marriage anyway. I doubt she condones the affairs, but she did forgive him. But what has this got to do with what Trump said he had done anyway? Bill Clinton is not running for President, and he never talked about assaulting women. I think Michelle Obama’s speech was very powerful, moving and wonderful.

      No one’s brought up? He was investigated and impeached for goodness sake. Do people really not remember that? And what about all those Christians who thought that she should divorce her husband and break up her family. Donald Trump has been married 3 times. Bill and Hillary Clinton, only once.

    Sticks and stones,will break bones,(Syria,Isis and Bill Clinton as examples),but words never bother me.

    Out of 400 million people in the US, they could only come up with those two!! But give me Hillary any day … at least she has experience in policy-making as Secretary of State. As for Trump, he is an egotistical buffoon, who has never had to answer to anyone, not even a board of directors. He is so self-absorbed that he believes everything he says which is little short of lunacy! He has relied on the fear of the US people that their American Dream has been dashed and considers himself to be their savior. How naive of them! What a joke!

    The scary thing for me is that the security and military of Australia are so closely tied to a nation that willingly produces this ego-maniac as even a potential leader of the planets democratic freedoms.

  5. Joan Marshall  

    While I do not condone Donald Trump’s remarks about women neither do I trust Hillary Clinton she is a power hungry money hungry, corrupt woman. Dear God please bring in Trump as President!!

    a great speech coming from Michele Obama, America you are in a mess! you cannot vote for Trump he is a disgusting and soulless individual who has nothing but contempt for women, you cannot vote for Hilary Clinton either because as secretary in Government she let down the side badly and that resulted in the unwarranted deaths of good men one of whom was the ambassador in Benghazi. Not just his death but the dreadful torture these men experienced and the awful and shocking way they died; for their country ; on her watch. No it is sad but true that you the people of the USA have picked the worst two possible candidates for president. If I were you I would scrub round them and start again. I would keep Obama on as caretaker or Joe Biden, then, start again and look for a decent person who warrants the title of President Of the USA.

      I totally agree. Neither candidate is worthy to be President of America. What were you all thinking putting these two people up for nomination? I can see World War Three falling upon us rapidly.
