Michelle Obama Just Called Out The Women Who Voted For Donald Trump

“Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice,” said former First Lady Michelle Obama during a Q & A with famous author and social commentator Roxane Gay at a Boston marketing conference this morning.

With her characteristic balance of eloquence and candor, Mrs. Obama answered the mystery of why so many (white) women voted for the Genitalia-Grabber-in-Chief, instead of opting to make Hillary Clinton our first woman president:

‘It doesn’t say as much about Hillary, and everybody’s trying to worry about what it means for Hillary and no, no, no, what does this mean for us, as women? That we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, “He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.” To me that just says, you don’t like your voice. You like the thing you’re told to like.’

Exemplifying her motto that “when they go low, we go high,” she hastened to add, “We’ve chosen to be supportive of this administration. There was an entire party that didn’t support my husband.”

The obstructionism her husband President Barack Obama endured has persisted past his tenure, as Trump and the Republicans attempt to erase his legacy as the nation’s first black president, rather than implement policies that uplift the American people. Hence, their ongoing efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, despite the fact that 76% of the country wants to build upon it, rather than scrap it.

“The Affordable Care Act isn’t Barack’s legacy. It’s the country’s legacy,” said Mrs. Obama.

Her words clearly resonated with the women gathered to hear her, especially when she described her upcoming book, which uses examples from her own life to inspire female empowerment: “How did that little girl get to be here? How many of us have sat in a classroom somewhere and watched a man go on and on and on?”

Her signature compassion, even for those who voted for a woman-hating race baiter, came through loud and clear: “We’ve been socialized to sit there and be quiet. We think in our heads ‘maybe I’m wrong.’”

In other words, there may have been many (white) women out there who thought, “I’d like to vote for the first woman president, but my husband keeps going on and on about why we can’t trust Hillary and he seems so confident about it. Maybe I’m wrong.”

Wrong was letting a divisive, unqualified nuclear chicken-playing, fraudulent-university-owning, accused sexual predator and obvious bigot get within 20 miles of the Oval Office.

Hopefully, Michelle Obama’s words will echo in the ears of women nationwide, when they go to the polls in 2018 and 2020.
