Why did Michelle Obama campaign against Hillary Clinton? “If you can’t run your own house, you certainly can’t run the White House.”
This video shows Michelle Obama campaign against Hillary Clinton and say she is not qualified to be president. Agreed!
This was, of course, back in 2008, when the Obamas and the Clintons were engaging in mortal combat to win the White House. The Obama contingent probably thought, at the time, that they were defeating the Clinton crime family forever. But, alas for them, it didn’t work out that way. So they’re stuck endorsing her. The Chicago sophisticates have to make nice with the rubes from Arkansas.
But, thanks to the internet, one of the few true things Michelle has said lives on. I hope Donald Trump will use it.
Some people might say that Trump’s divorces and confessed sexual transgressions mean that Michelle Obama’s words work against him. When talking about a good role model for the White House, however, we have to assess what our options are. When you hear accusations about Donald Trump not being a good role model, ask them, “Compared to what?” Because compared to the Clintons, Trump is much superior.
Besides which, Trump could use this clip and deny he was invoking Michelle Obama’s testimony in a positive way. He could argue that this clip of the Michelle Obama campaign against Hillary Clinton is actually a whitewash. The issue is not that Hillary Clinton fails to be a good role model. The issue is that there is evidence Criminal Hillary Clinton covered up illegal behavior.
Imagine that video of Michelle Obama introducing this footage:
Michelle Obama obviously told her audience in 2008 that Bill Clinton was out of control. She didn’t elaborate on Bill Clinton’s behavior. She counted on her audience to immediately know what she was talking about without her spelling it out.
Donald Trump is spelling everything out. “Not a good role model” was a vast understatement.
