Michelle Obama Goes Wild; Takes Public Swipe at Trump

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has been hesitant to be too vocal since Hillary Clinton’s unexpected and embarrassing loss in the 2016 presidential election; but earlier today on Twitter, she decided to let it rip on President Donald Trump.

Mrs. Obama’s tweet did not use Donald Trump’s name, but was a clear swipe at the president following his comments regarding Rep. Ilhan Omar.

She wrote on Twitter, “What truly makes our country great is its diversity. I’ve seen that beauty in so many ways over the years. Whether we are born here or seek refuge here, there’s a place for us all. We must remember it’s not my America or your America. It’s our America.”


Her husband, former President Barack Obama, retweeted the message to his own followers.

Her tweet echoes comments made earlier this week by socialist Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. At a press conference in Washington, DC, the young socialist said, “No matter what the president says, this country belongs to you. It belongs to everyone.”

AOC, Omar, and other progressives in congress are using Trump’s controversial comments to give themselves a bigger platform and attempt to portray themselves as victims–so far, however, it is not clear if that strategy is working amongst the American public.

Over the last two weeks, President Trump has been the target of liberal fury for criticizing four socialist freshman Democratic congresswomen, telling them that if they don’t like America they can go back to “the broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

Trump continues to stand by his remarks, as the entire liberal media and Democratic House has tried to portray him as racist. On Friday, when he was asked by a reporter to respond to the criticism of his remarks, he responded, “I don’t care if it’s good or bad politically. I don’t care.”

The Obamas have mostly avoided commenting on politics since they left the White House in 2017.  However, it seems they may be gearing up to be more vocal as 2020 approaches. The couple will almost definitely end up endorsing whichever candidate wins the Democratic primary.
