Don't Let Anyone Ever Tell You That This Country Isn't Great,' Says Michelle Obama, Who Once Said She Wasn't Proud Of Her Country
On Monday night, First Lady Michelle Obama gave a speech that became the talk of the Democratic National Convention. There’s only one problem: that speech will, in the end, actually hurt Democrats.
Partially, the speech became the talk of the convention because it was a rare unifying moment seized upon by the media to press forward Hillary Clinton’s candidacy. But it also became the talk of the convention because of its rare focus on uplift.
Bernie Sanders spent the evening repeating discredited slogans that resulted in the deaths of 100 million people in the 20th century. Elizabeth Warren gesticulated like a loon in an insane asylum and rambled about banks.
But Michelle Obama paid homage to America.
Which is weird, given that Michelle Obama used to think America was a rather rotten place.
