US First Lady Michelle Obama on Monday addressed the opening night of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) with a message of hope and unity for the party while endorsing presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton, saying she “trusts Hillary to lead the country”.
The First Lady did not take Donald Trump’s name in her speech, however she made a sharp sketch of the Republican nominee.
“I want someone with proven strength … someone who understands that the issues a president faces are not black and white and cannot be boiled down to 140 characters,” the First Lady said.
Clinton, “has the guts and the grace to keep coming back and putting those cracks in that highest and hardest glass ceiling,” Michelle added.
The First Lady said she “trusts and believes” the former Secretary of State was truly qualified to shape “America’s children for the next four or eight years.”
And the first person to appreciate Michelle’s speech was her husband, the President. Taking to the tweeter, Obama wrote : “Incredible speech by an incredible woman.”
Incredible speech by an incredible woman. Couldn’t be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle.

If I were to make a movie analogy: Michelle’s speech was The Godfather Part II. Melania’s speech was The Room.
