CHANGE: For the second time in her adult life, Michelle Obama is proud of her country! ‘This country IS great’: Michelle Obama jabs at Trump; heralds progress that means she can ‘wake up in a White House built by slaves’ and says ‘I’m with her’ in rousing speech backing Hillary.


“For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country,” [Michelle Obama] told a Milwaukee crowd today, “because it feels like hope is making a comeback.”

And in the prior month, the London Telegraph reported that Mrs. Obama launched a “scathing attack” on Hillary, stating she represents ‘the same old thing over and over again:'”

Though she never mentioned her by name, Mrs Obama pointedly argued that Mrs Clinton represented a status quo that had done nothing for ordinary people.”I get confused when people say there are a lot of choices in this race,” she said. “There are so many more experienced candidates. My response is, no, that’s not true. You’ve got two choices in this race.

“You’ve got the same old thing over and over again that hasn’t worked for regular folks in my lifetime. And then we have Barack Obama.”

At a rally the same night, Mr Obama seemed to take a leaf out of his wife’s book after she had introduced him, drawing a sharp contrast with Mrs Clinton, suggesting she was not truthful and was “willing to say anything to get elected”.

I’m certainly glad no one could ever accuse Mr. Obama of such shameless duplicity…
