Former First Lady Michelle Obama was the keynote speaker at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, delivering the speech from her home in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. The former First Lady didn't hold back in her speech, even going so far as to warn the American people that “[I]f you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can; and they will if we don’t make a change.”
Her 2016 DNC speech has been remembered by her declaration of "when they go low, we go high," but her 2020 DNC speech will be remembered for how dire a warning she cast about the future of our country if President Trump were to be reelected. She even turned the President's words back on him after he dismissively brushed aside a question about his handling of various crises in the country by saying "it is what it is." In response, the former First Lady said "He [President Trump] cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is."
To be honest, I think this was exactly the speech that Democrats and left-of-center independents needed to hear. I wouldn't even be surprised if some moderate Republicans took it as a breath of fresh air. She tugged at our heartstrings by lamenting how divided (and exhausted) we have become as a country and how she believes that Joe Biden is the only person who can begin to heal the deep emotional divide this country is going through.
I understand there are a wide range of political opinions out there and respect all of them, but you have to try really hard to dislike the former First Lady. There's a reason she's the country's Most Admired Woman. She is basically "America's Mom."
