Michelle Obama has taken to the campaign trail to use her star power to distract from Hillary Clinton’s lies and crimes.
So-called “journalists” fawn over her remarks and act like rock tour groupies as opposed to clear-eyed political reporters.
And they allowed her to get away with some of the most outrageous statements of the campaign season.
Campaigning in North Carolina, Michelle Obama delivered one of the most preposterous attack speeches ever.
She cast Trump as the antithesis of Clinton, painting him as a divisive candidate who conveys a vision of an America that’s weak and full of despair with communities in chaos and fellow citizens who are threats to one another. That stood in direct contrast to the rosy America that Obama said Clinton is working for, one that builds on her campaign’s mantra of “Stronger Together.”
She also highlighted Clinton’s vast experience in public life over decades, tacitly stacking her political résumé up against a man whose White House campaign is his only true political experience.
“Yeah, that’s right. Hillary doesn’t play,” Obama said, after recalling that Clinton has been a law professor, a lawyer, a two-term first lady, a U.S. Senator and a Secretary of State. “She has more experience and exposure to the presidency than any candidate in our lifetimes. Yes, more than Barack. More than Bill. So she is absolutely ready to be Commander in Chief on Day One, and yes, she happens to be a woman.”
“We want a president who takes this job seriously and has the temperament and maturity to do it well. Someone who is steady, someone who we can trust with the nuclear codes, because we wanna go to sleep at night knowing that our kids and our country are safe,” Obama said. “And I am here today because I believe with all of my heart — and I would not be here lying to you — I believe with all my heart that Hillary Clinton will be that president.”
She told supporters who are working their hearts out “for my girl” to “please, please be encouraged” — “because we still live in the greatest country on earth,” she said. “We do.”
Hillary Clinton has been possibly the most divisive figure in American politics over the last 30 years.
During the primary season, she called Republicans her “enemies” and later labeled half of Trump’s supporters “deplorable.”
What was even worse than the deplorable remark was that she exposed herself as a false Christian when she also said Trump’s deplorable supporters were “irredeemable.”
Redemption is central to the Christian faith and she cast off her mask and revealed herself to be a divisive fraud who was clearly lying about her adherence to Christianity.
Also, Obama’s remarks about her experience fly in the face of reality.
All of her experience in government is in failing at whatever task was set in front of her.
Her husband put her in charge of healthcare reform in 1993 and what came to be known as Hillarycare crashed and burned.
As a Senator, she voted for the Iraq War which led to our nation being mired in conflict for nearly 15 years.
During her time as Secretary of State, she championed the disastrous war in Libya, pushed a reset with Russia that they ignored and backed the negotiations with Iran that will lead to the rouge Islamic Republic one day obtaining a nuclear weapon.
As for her temperament, she is campaigning on starting World War III with Russia.
Her proposal for a “no fly zone” over Syria could lead to American fighter pilots shooting down Russian jets.
That would set in motion events that could end in nuclear war.
If journalists had any integrity, they would carefully examine Michelle Obama’s remarks and see if they match up with the reality of Hillary’s record.
Here’s betting that won’t happen.
