(TheFreedomFlag.com)- During the first day of the Democratic National Convention, former First Lady Michelle Obama gave a speech in which she slammed President Donald Trump not just for the policies she doesn’t agree with, but for things he didn’t do. Obama made a series of assertions about President Trump that were simply untrue, while praising Joe Biden as an effective vice president who knows how to handle a pandemic.
Trump slammed Obama’s speech as “extremely divisive” and his opinion appears to be shared by many who noted their disgust on Twitter.
“She was over her head, and frankly she should have made the speech live, which she didn’t do,” President Trump said during a press conference on Tuesday. Trump made the comments during the same press conference in which he honored the 100th anniversary of women achieving the right to vote, via the 19th Amendment.
“I thought it was a very divisive speech, very divisive,” he said, before noting that the speech failed to even address the upcoming nomination of Kamala Harris as the Democrats’ vice presidential pick. Wouldn’t you think that the wife of the first black president of the United States would have something to say about the first black woman to be nominated onto a major party ticket? Apparently not.
Obama’s claim during the speech that Biden knows how to handle a pandemic and manage an economy were definitely inflated. Obama and Biden oversaw the management of the 2008 financial crisis, but President Trump’s performance completely overshadowed everything they did. Before the lockdown measures were imposed as a result of the Chinese coronavirus, President Trump oversaw the biggest jobs boom in American history.
What’s more, the pandemics that Obama and Biden oversaw during their eight years in office were nothing like the coronavirus. Swine Flu and Ebola were significantly less infectious than coronavirus, and when they were handling the virus, Congressional Republicans weren’t doing everything they could to harm the president’s response to them.
So what was Michelle Obama trying to do? Win by lying?
The former first lady even made the incorrect assertion that President Trump’s administration has thrown children “into cages” at the border, forgetting that the chain-link enclosures used to house illegal immigrants temporarily were actually installed during President Obama’s administration.
