Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s virtual speech for the Democratic National Convention was highly critical of President Trump.
The first virtual convention aired Monday evening and will continue nightly through Thursday evening.
It didn’t take long for the former first lady to use race-based slander against President Trump.
Without calling his name, Michelle was critical of President Trump and her misleading comments were throughout her speech, including saying White House leaders are “emboldening torch-bearing white supremacists” and that “children are torn from their families and thrown into cages.”

President Trump commented on Michelle’s speech on social media.
….My Administration and I built the greatest economy in history, of any country, turned it off, saved millions of lives, and now am building an even greater economy than it was before. Jobs are flowing, NASDAQ is already at a record high, the rest to follow. Sit back & watch!

Other speakers appearing virtually included Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Ohio Republican Governor John Kasich.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to speak and accept the presidential nomination on Thursday evening.
Interestingly, Michelle didn’t mention Biden’s vice presidential running mate California Democrat Senator Kamala Harris.
That’s because Michelle recorded her speech prior to Biden’s VP pick announcement last week.
The virtual convention was heavy on criticism against President Trump and light on Biden’s Democrat policies.
Following the event, the Trump campaign issued a statement.

Not surprisingly Michelle’s speech was full of criticism against President Trump considering he is successfully dismantling her husband’s legacy.
