Mrs. Obama took it upon herself to advocate for Hillary Clinton by criticizing Donald Trump for his comments about women and refusing to promise to accept the results of the presidential election.
So, in North Carolina, Trump said, “We have a president. All he wants to do is campaign. His wife ― all she wants to do is campaign. And I see how much his wife likes Hillary. But wasn’t she the one that originally started the statement. If you can’t take care of your home, right? You can’t take care of the White House and the country? Where is that? I don’t hear that.”
He Said She Said…
In 2008, Obama spoke about the importance of being role models of strong family values. However, she never said Clinton’s name. Trump was talking about comments that Obama made in 2007. She said, “One of the things, the important aspects of this race, is role modeling what good families should look like. And my view is that if you can’t run your own house, you certainly can’t run the White House. Can’t do it.”
Bill Clinton’s Troubled Past
Speaking of Michelle Obama, Trump attacks on Bill Clinton’s past issues and how Hillary handled them, Trump reminds the dems that, Michelle Obama did it first. In NC he said, “I said, ‘We can’t say that. It’s too vicious.’ Can you believe it? I said that — ‘We can’t say that.’ They said, ‘Well, Michelle Obama said it.’ I said, ‘She did?’”
In 2007 while in Iowa, she made the statement, “So we’ve adjusted our schedules to make sure that our girls are first, so while he’s traveling around, I do day trips. That means I get up in the morning, I get the girls ready, I get them off, I go and do trips, I’m home before bedtime.” Back then, this was taken by media as directed towards Hillary Clinton.
Now the president denies that it had anything to do with Hillary Clinton. Rather, as with everything else, it was about the Bush administration. He explained, “There was no reference beyond her point that we have had an administration that talks a lot about family values but doesn’t follow through.”
