Former First Lady Michelle Obama utterly destroyed President Donald Trump and the methods he’s using in his reelection campaign in a new video she filmed and posted on the Biden-Harris YouTube page Tuesday morning, noting that the current president traffics in racism and is counting on hatred to steer him to a second term in office:
In the video, which is titled “Michelle Obama’s Closing Argument,” Mrs. Obama urges Democrats and others who want to see positive change in the nation to get out and vote and not be complacent:
“What the president is doing is, once again, patently false, it’s morally wrong, and, yes, it is racist. But that doesn’t mean it won’t work.”
Addressing the Trump’s failure to confront the coronavirus pandemic in an effective manner, the former first lady notes:
“If you’re a parent like me, you’re feeling the consequences of this president’s failure to take this pandemic seriously… from his constant downplaying of the importance of masks and social distancing… to his relentless pressure on schools to open without offering a clear plan or meaningful support to keep students and teachers safe.
“(Trump) had every resource at his disposal, the finest medical experts, our best intelligence… and yet ignored all the advice and failed to produce a plan to provide enough tests for worried families or protective equipment for our healthcare workers. A man who knew how deadly this virus is, but who lied to us, and told us it would just disappear.”
Instead of protecting Americans, Mrs. Obama continues, the current president has sought to divide us for his own selfish political benefit:
“The President and his allies are trying to tap into that frustration and distract from his breathtaking failures by giving folks someone to blame other than them. They’re stoking fears about Black and Brown Americans… lying about how minorities will destroy the suburbs… whipping up violence and intimidation—and they’re pinning it all on what’s been an overwhelmingly peaceful movement for racial solidarity. It’s true; research backs it up. Only a tiny fraction of demonstrations have had any violence at all.”
Near the end of the powerful 24-minute video, Mrs. Obama tells viewers:
“Search your hearts, and your conscience, and then vote for Joe Biden like your lives depend on it.”
Our lives and the lives of our children do indeed depend on electing someone who will work on behalf of all of us, not just himself and his own selfish whims.
