Here is Michelle Obama's entire speech from yesterday during her first day campaigning for Hillary Clinton.

Courtesy of ABC News: 

Making her campaign trail debut for Hillary Clinton, First Lady Michelle Obama ripped into Donald Trump without directly naming him while also laying out her case for supporting Hillary Clinton as “one of the most qualified people who had ever endeavored to become president." 

“No one in our lifetime has ever had as much experience and exposure to the presidency. Not Barack, not Bill, as he would say, nobody, and yes, she happens to be a woman,” the first lady said to a roaring applause at an event in Fairfax, Va. 

“So, we can not afford squander this opportunity, particularly given the alternative. Because here is what we know: That being president isn't anything like reality TV. It is not about sending insulting tweets or making fiery speeches,” she continued. 

The first lady, previously dubbed “the closer” for her effectiveness as a campaign surrogate during her husband’s presidential campaigns, was at one point interrupted by chants of “four more years” as she talked about the bittersweet feelings she is experiencing as her husband’s final term in office draws to a close.

As usual the First Lady knocked it out of the ballpark and reminded all of us just how amazing both she and her husband have been for this country.

And while she strongly spoke out in favor or electing Hillary Clinton she also reminded voters why they could NEVER even consider voting for her opponent.

“If a candidate is erratic and threatening, if a candidate traffics in project, fears, and lies on the trail, if a candidate has no clear plans to implement their goals, if they disrespect their fellow citizens including folks who made extraordinary sacrifices for our country, let me tell you, that is who they are,” she said.

And her endorsement of Hillary Clinton was full throated:  

"When she didn't win the presidency in 2008, she didn't throw in the towel," the first lady said of Clinton. "She once again answered the call to serve, keeping us safe as our secretary of state. And let me tell you, Hillary has the resilience that it takes to do this job. See, because when she gets knocked down, she doesn't complain or cry foul. No, she gets right back up and she comes back stronger for the people who need her the most." "When I hear folks saying they're not inspired this this election, I disagree. I am inspired," she said, urging the crowd to register to vote and actually cast ballots for Clinton.

So much for those rumors of animosity between Hillary and Michelle.

And speaking of overblown rumors of friction, Bernie Sanders also hit the campaign trail for Clinton yesterday: 

Asked about a New York Times/CBS News poll released Thursday showing that a third of voters under the age of 30 plan to vote for third-party candidates, Sanders offered his “pitch” to those younger voters, who overwhelmingly supported him in the Democratic primary. 

“Look, I was a third-party candidate. I began my career running as a third party, getting 2 percent and then 1 percent,” Sanders said. “I'm the longest serving independent in the history of the U.S. Congress, but I think that before you cast a protest vote, because Clinton or Trump will be president, think hard about it. This is not a governor's race. It's not a state legislative race. This is the presidency of the United States.” 

“And I would say to those people out there who are thinking of the protest vote, think about what the country looks like and whether you're comfortable with four years of a Trump presidency,” he continued.

Well Hillary herself may not be the best when it comes to campaigning, but damn when you include President Obama, Bill Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren into this mix, she certainly has the strongest group of surrogates that one could possibly hope for.

    Yes, THINK, but most of them don't else his poll numbers would not be what they are. IF he wins, don't come bitching, RWNJ "take our country back" losers, when you get EXACTLY what you voted for.

    1. Anonymous10:49 AM

      You're exactly right (very unfortunately!)

      I've heard too many people tell me--proudly, no less-- that they base their vote on their "feelings", rather than on those, oh, you know, boring "facts".

      And you KNOW if they get what they voted for, they will find some way to blame someone else.

      Dear universe help us, at this point.

  2. How long until Trumplethinskin starts attacking Michelle? Calling her "not very intelligent", etc?

    I don't think that would end well for him.

    I will so miss the Obamas when they leave the White House.

      Have you noticed so far that little negative is being spread or pushed by Trump about President and First Lady Obama?

      He's afraid to go after them because he knows the vast majority of Americans love, respect and support The Obamas!

      Trump will decrease his chances MORE as to becoming POTUS if he or his 'racist' group go after the Obamas!

      Fuck Donald Trump, America! Hillary Clinton is the ONLY choice for becoming our next POTUS!

    Jane Goodall Says Donald Trump Reminds Her Of How Chimpanzees Act To Get Attention

    ...In many ways the performances of Donald Trump remind me of male chimpanzees and their dominance rituals,” Goodall said. “In order to impress rivals, males seeking to rise in the dominance hierarchy perform spectacular displays: stamping, slapping the ground, dragging branches, throwing rocks. The more vigorous and imaginative the display, the faster the individual is likely to rise in the hierarchy, and the longer he is likely to maintain that position.”

      Let's not insult the chimps, they are far more intelligent than Trump.

    Don't forget VP Joe Biden as a Hillary Clinton supporter, IM! He'll do an outstanding job on the campaign trail backing her too!

    Vote Hillary Clinton!!! Yea! Can hardly wait to see her take the oath of office in January, 2017!

    AND - don't pay attention to the polls that MSNBC and CNN are spouting! They keep saying Hillary Clinton is behind and I don't believe them one bit! Recall how they pushed the same baloney about Mitt Romney and our wonderful President Obama beat the crap out of him.

    The same thing is going to happen to Republicans again - only worse! Trump is pure evil and Republicans (national and state parties) are showing who they really are, and aren't, in their undying, continual support of the asshole!

    I suggest Donald Trump will NEVER be elected POTUS!

    1. I am so glad that you posted this reminder about the polls and the Romney prediction.
      Makes me all the more determined to work diligently for HRC right up to the close of the polls or my last breath, whichever happens first!
      The extreme hostility I feel for Kellyanne Conway (who Bill Maher shredded on his show), and the Trump surrogates might just ease up with steady concerted effort toward getting the Dems back in power.
      In the meantime, I pray to all of invented deities that someone takes Trump's bodyguard idea and whacks HIM out. (and no, I am NOT afraid that someone worse would replace him) That person is already on permanent un-electable leave in Alaska.

    2. Anonymous1:44 PM

      They are pro Trump anyway, heck CNN has a Trump employee on staff.

      The polls showing Trump ahead might be a good thing: the morons will not vote thinking he has won and it might scare some of those lazy Democrats to get off their butts and vote.

      Like Bristol got to choose hers? Go away, Alicia.

    POTUS needs to accept the reality that until he quashes the TPP, he's doing more to help Trump than anyone else possibly could. No amount of stumping for Clinton is going to make up for that.

    Michelle Obama spoke to the millennial audience.That is crucial to HRC's team.

    Michelle reached out and held the audience in her hand. She is magic!

    "...if a candidate traffics in project, fears, and lies on the trail..." Sounds like is talking about the Hillary campaign frankly.

    Are the star studded Hillary lineup going to discuss what to do when Hillary has her next public seizure?

    1. Anonymous11:37 AM

      I hope you get lost on the way to the polls. You're too stupid to have a vote.

    2. She hasn't had any public seizure. But keep dreaming.

    3. Anonymous2:16 PM


      11:03 is just another example of why our founders set up our system with only certain people being able to vote. Once it became open to everyone this country went into the shitter.

    4. Anonymous6:29 PM

      Well 2:16, under the system the founders set up, only white, male, landholders could vote. Many right wingers want to take this country back to the 1950s but you apparently are all in to take us back to the 1790s.

      Who really cares? Those that vote for him will get what they asked for, the rest of us will just weather the storm same as we did with W. No biggie, sometimes idiots need to have their points proven to them. I'm willing to wait 4 years for the idiots to be starved, ignored, deported or thrown into poverty worse than even they have ever imagined.

      It's gonna be fun to watch, that's for sure!

    See Bernie's "pitch" for yourselves on Seth Meyers the other night.

    Gryphen's defaming posts against Bernie Sanders are complete bullshit.

      Where was the defamation in this post? You bernie bros are really too fucking much. Grow up.

    2. Anonymous3:28 PM

      You're either playing dumb or you have a reading comprehension problem 2:18. Who said anything about this post? Let me explain it like you're a 3rd grad reader. The video at 11:50 shows the posts where he's viciously defamed Sanders for not supporting Clinton are bullshit, you dumb fuck.

    3. Anonymous4:06 PM

      So you didn't read the post you're commenting on and I'M the dumbfuck? Fucking idiot.

    4. Anonymous5:18 PM

      Gryphen has been defaming Sanders and insulting his supporters almost since Sanders announced and continued well after the convention.

      In fact, this is the first post I've seen resembling anything approaching civility where Sanders is concerned.

      Sanders is campaigning for Clinton in colleges where he is strong and she isn't. Sanders, Warren and Mrs. Obama are popular with the under 30 crowd and knowing they need their votes, that is where the Clinton campaign has sent them.

      Sanders is there. He is doing what he said he would do. He is supporting Clinton, campaigning for her and urging everyone to vote for her.

      I think Bernie deserves an apology for at least some of the nastiness leveled at him. Apologies from a few on this board to a few on this board wouldn't be amiss either.

    5. Anonymous5:31 PM

      Sigh. OK, 4:06, let's explain it like you're a 5 year old. Gryphen has defamed Sanders in a number of posts for not supporting Clinton to his satisfaction. Today he at last gave recognition that Sanders is indeed campaigning for/advocating for Clinton. 11:50 posted a link to a video where one can also hear and see how full-throatedly Sanders is endorsing Clinton. The video supplements what Gryphen wrote about Sanders in this post and demonstrates that what he's written in a number of other defamatory posts - that Sanders is off lining his pockets instead of helping Clinton - is bullshit. Get it now? Sheesh.

    By the way, notice how when Bernie talks to Seth Meyers about the Democratic party he says "us" and "we".

    1. Anonymous1:46 PM

      Yes, that is why he is still registered as an Independent.

      Give it a break, he lost !!

    2. Anonymous2:13 PM

      Hello, the reason we all liked Bernie is because he wasn't part of the two-party system that is totally broken, hello!

    3. Anonymous3:48 PM

      And 48% of likely Democratic voters polled this week say they want Bernie to replace Clinton if she had to drop out. 22% Biden. So there's still big love for Bernie by Dems.

    4. Anonymous4:07 PM

      So a minority. Fuck him.

    5. Anonymous5:16 PM

      No dumbass, a plurality. Fuck you.

    6. Anonymous5:24 PM

      He has always caucused with the Democrats.

      He may not be a Democrat or member of the party, but he does share many policies with them. So he is not out of line to use "us" and "we". When it comes to defeating Donald Trump, Bernie is one of US and WE will defeat him.

      Anyone that can't get behind that can fuck off.
