  • Michelle Obama canít hide her disdain for Melania Trump

    09/24/2016 7:27:46 AM PDT · by rktman · 98 replies ^ | 9/25/2016 | M. Catharine Evans
    There is no sugarcoating Michelle Obama's venomous response to a question from Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night. At the same time black mobs were beating up innocent white people in Charlotte, North Carolina, showing no mercy, Mrs. Obama, appearing on Colbert's late night show, went after Melania Trump. "No sympathy"? A more secure first lady would have said, "Yes, I have sympathy for the spouse of a presidential candidate. It's a grueling experience." Then she should have stated she was flattered that Melania liked her speech enough to use a few lines. That's a classy answer. But no such hope...

    This video has surfaced where Michelle again refers to Barack Obama as a Kenyan (approx 2:00 mark). This is classic "ends justify the means" when it comes to their efforts, the Constitution be damned. If you listen to the rest, you can hear the sheer hatred she has for America. Now that they are in the White House, I don't think that attitude has changed one bit.

    Michelle Obama has bridled for years at the confines of life in the White House and has tried to steer clear of the partisan messiness that has consumed her husband and is fueling this yearís bare-knuckled presidential contest. But this week, Mrs. Obama will wade into the campaign fray on behalf of Hillary Clinton, putting her broad popularity and reputation for authenticity to work for a candidate who has suffered from a lack of both.

    Hillary is not liked by many voters, let along by many Democrat voters and won't have the same election turnout that Obama had in the 2012 election. She is slipping away in the polls and momentum appears to be on Trump's side. If for some reason Hillary isn't the nominee; then it's highly plausible that the Democrats will select someone that's more likable to the base and that may certainly energize peole, even those that don't like Hillary and are considering voting for Trump but may be swayed to go back to vote for Democrat ticket. Joe Biden is one...
