No, we listen to each other.– The speech reflects a remarkable transformation in Michelles brand from 2008, when she at times caused headaches for her husbands campaign.
She didn’t need to dignify Trump by naming him. No one had any doubt exactly who she was talking about with these five soundbites:
"The issues we face are not black and white and cannot be boiled down to 140 characters."
"When you have the nuclear codes at your fingertips, and the military in your command, you can't make snap decisions, you can't have thin skin and a tendency to lash out."
"I want a president with a record of public service, someone whose life's work shows our children that we don't chase fame and fortune for ourselves."
"I want a president who will teach our children that everyone in this country matters. A president who truly believes in the vision that our founders put forth all those years ago, that we are all created equal."
