Michelle Obama goes low in phony post-Trump tapes performance
Michelle Obama's fakery in playing the part of a crusader for wronged women and girls is as transparent as a pane of glass. While stumping for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire on Thursday, Michelle forced herself to appear emotionally upset over a Donald Trump video in which he was caught using vulgar language about women.
This woman has been a lawyer, a hospital executive, and a first lady. She's probably done it, seen it, and heard it all. Suspending disbelief at her "outrage" just isn't an option here.
When Michelle hunched over and made her voice quake with indignation during the contrived performance, she showed how low she would go to shore up Hillary's campaign. After all, Hillary talks all the time about her track record fighting for the rights of women, children, and girls. If Michelle could paint Trump as a sexual predator, then maybe the heat would be taken off Hillary's husband.
If Michelle or Hillary cared about women and girls, why would they push abortion as a way to help? Why would Hillary not believe all the women who came out and told their stories of how Bill Clinton sexually assaulted them?
Why would Michelle idolize the foul-mouthed sex-crazed cop-hater Beyoncé – it's no secret she aspires to actually be Beyoncé – and take her daughters to the singer's concert when they were only 10 and 13 years old? She considers the singer "a beautiful role model who kids everywhere can look up to."
Yet Michelle said Trump was "using language so obscene that many of us were worried about our children hearing it when we turn on the TV." She went on, "If all of this is painful to us as grown women, what do you think this is doing to our children? What message are our little girls hearing about who they should look like, how they should act? What lessons are they learning about their value as professionals, as human beings, about their dreams and aspirations?"
Wow, in denial much?
After last weekend's assault on Trump by corporate media and GOP members of Congress over a video of taped comments from 11 years ago, and Trump's subsequent trouncing of Hillary in the second debate, all Hillary could come up with was getting her good friend Michelle Obama to emote and shake in front of the cameras?
After about ten minutes of invented concern for women and girls, Michelle put on a new face, straightened up, removed the voice gyrations, and launched into how Hillary is the greatest woman in the world.
Maybe a career in acting would have been a better choice than FLOTUS.
