On the first night of the Democratic National Convention on Monday, former first lady Michelle Obama launched a scathing attack on President Donald Trump, calling him the “wrong president” for the nation and urging Voters to elect Joe Biden in November to end the turmoil created by Trump’s presidency. While admitting that she didn’t care much about politics, Obama said the response was Biden’s calm and empathetic approach to issues and encouraged people to stand up or do whatever it took to make sure they can beat Trump.
“Whenever we look to this White House for some leadership or consolation or any semblance of steadiness, what we get instead is chaos, division, and a total and utter lack of empathy,” Obama said, adding Trump was “in over his head” as president. Obama, whose husband Barack Obama was president while Biden served as vice president from 2009-2017, capped a lengthy list of speakers, including some of Trump’s fellow Republicans, who made the case for Biden at the start of his four-day nomination convention.
“Joe Biden will end the hate and division Trump has created. He will stop the demonization of immigrants, the coddling of white nationalists, the racist dog whistling, the religious bigotry and the ugly attacks on women,” said Sanders, a U.S. senator and Biden’s top primary rival.
