Republican nominee reached a new low today when he attacked beloved our First Lady Michelle Obama in a bizarre rant during a rally today in Fletcher, North Carolina. Just a week or so after the White House warned Trump to leave the First Lady out of his hateful campaign, Trump has proved incapable of not taking the bait once again and decided to fire some shots at the woman who is literally the most popular political figure in the United States.
“We have a bunch of babies running our country folks. They’re losers. 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 started the statement, “if you can’t take care of your home? right? You can’t take care your White House, and the country? Where is that? I don’t hear that! She’s the one that started it. I said ‘we can’t say that it’s too vicious.’ Can you believe it? I said that. They said ‘well Michelle Obama said that.’ I said she did? She said that but we don’t hear about it.”
He then went on to give an incoherent fear-mongering rant that warned of fire and brimstone if Hillary Clinton was elected. that taxes are going up and there’s going to be “ISIS everywhere” and so on and so forth.
Trump, who appears to cross lines just for the sake of spiting his advisers who try to restrain him, isn’t going to survive this one. We await the First Lady’s response with bated breath.
