Former First Lady Michelle Obama was speaking to all of us last night at the kick-off of the Democratic National Convention, in an impassioned speech.
Some key moments:
The president, she said, “is in over his head. He cannot meet this moment.” And using Trump’s own words, she said, “It is what it is.”
“Whenever we look to this White House for some leadership or consolation or any semblance of steadiness,” she said, “what we get instead is chaos, division and a total and utter lack of empathy.”
And in the end, she implored us to ‘vote as if our lives depended on it.’
“If you take one thing from my words tonight, it is this: If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can, and they will, if we don’t make a change in this election,” she said. “If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it.”
