Vanity Fair had a different reaction to what Michelle had to say that day, praising her for her bravery in what she’s been through, glorifying her as an American hero:
“As she has promised several times in the months since the inauguration, Michelle Obama is still here for us, America, and with a knack for showing back up just when we need her most. Hours before Donald Trump announced via Twitter that the military would be rolling back efforts toward inclusivity that even the G.O.P. Congress supported, Obama appeared at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s (W.F.C.O.), and managed to use her own experiences with racism as a way to prove that America is still a good place. Really.”
“Per the Denver Post, W.F.C.O. President and C.E.O. Lauren Casteel asked Obama which shards cut the deepest when she broke through the ceiling to become the first black First Lady. Obama had an answer straight away.”
“’The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,’ she said. ‘Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color’.”
With the floor and liberal’s attention fawning over her every word and giving credence to her complaints, Michelle droned on about what she had to endure as the first lady.
Her remarks seemed to not only be for sympathy and attention but came across as a way to say that this racist-based persecution was not something Melania will ever have to face since she’s white. This is wrong since Melania has had more than her fair share of attacks as an immigrant woman and former model, both reason liberals make fun of her for.
“Women, we endure those cuts in so many ways that we don’t even notice we’re cut,” Michelle continued in her speech. “We are living with small tiny cuts, and we are bleeding every single day. And we’re still getting up.”
“The people in this country are universally good and kind and honest and decent,” Michelle added at the conclusion of her remarks. “Don’t be afraid of the country you live in. The folks here are good.”
Remember during the campaign when Obama vowed “when they go low, we go high?” She’s still doing it, and remaining optimistic despite the massive task in front of her (and all of us), Vanity Fair reported.
Michelle made the assumption in her speech that people are afraid of the country we live in today under Trump, by acting as the self-imposed voice of reason for them to not be since there are role models like her they can look up to. Whether people are really afraid, it’s only because of the rhetoric she and her husband have pushed to perpetuate that nonsensical fear.
