First Lady Michelle Obama Opens 2016 DNC with Rousing Speech

FLOTUS DNC Speech 2016

First Lady Michelle Obama may have recently made the news for having her speech plagiarized at the Republican National Convention, but now all anyone can talk about is her latest moving speech that she delivered on opening night of the Democratic National Convention.

FLOTUS wowed audiences with her speech in which she not only endorsed Hilary Clinton as her choice for President, while subtly shading Republican nominee Donald Trump, but she also reminded that masses in attendance that everyone who votes in this election should do so with the thought that America’s children’s futures are at stake. “Make no mistake about it, this November when we go to the polls that is what we’re deciding, not Democrat or Republican, not left or right,” she said. “No, this election and every election is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives.”

Of course, she also had to get some shots in at Trump, but never named his name. “Because when you have the nuclear codes at your fingertips and the military in your command, you can’t make snap decisions. You can’t have a thin skin or a tendency to lash out. You need to be steady and measured and well-informed.”

In closing, Obama urged everyone to get out and vote because participation in this election is crucial. “So in this election, we cannot sit back and hope that everything works out for the best. We cannot afford to be tired or frustrated or cynical. No, hear me. Between now and November, we need to do what we did eight years ago and four years ago.”

President Obama was certainly proud of his wife’s speech, tweeting, “Incredible speech by an incredible woman. Couldn’t be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle.”
