Michelle Obama is not a big fan of Donald Trump.
This, of course, is akin to saying that Donald Trump is not a big fan of women or Muslims or Mexicans or telling the truth.
It’s not exactly groundbreaking.
But the beloved First Lady got especially up in (muscular) arms on Thursday while on the campaign trail in Phoenix, stumping for Hillary Clinton.
The main topic on which Obama focused?
Trump’s stunning admission during Wednesday’s Presidential debate that he might contest the election results, doubling down on his ongoing claims that this process is “rigged.”
Said Obama in a fiery speech:
“When a presidential candidate threatens to ignore our voices and reject the outcome of the election, he is threatening the very idea of America itself.”
During the debate, moderator Chris Wallace was aghast that Trump would even entertain the notion of not fully supporting the will of the American people on November 8.
“There is a tradition in this country – in fact, one of the prides of this country is the peaceful transition of power,” Wallace said to Trump, adding by way of a question:
“No matter how hard-fought the campaign, at the end, the loser concedes to the winner … and the country comes together.
“Are you saying you’re not prepared to adhere to that principle?”
“What I am saying is, I’ll tell you at the time,” Trump replied. “I’ll keep you in suspense.”
Yes, he’ll keep us in suspense, as if this is some kind of TV show that needs a cliffhanger.
