Trump Takes Potshots at Michelle Obama

Sunday, 23 Oct, 2016

The First Lady's Thursday visit to Phoenix is now set.

For Republicans, Maricopa County - which includes Phoenix, more than 4 million of Arizona's 6.7 million residents and a prominent Trump supporter in controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio - is where Trump's style could pay dividends.

"Arizona is a battle state because you made it one", Gallego said.

"It's unusual for a sitting first lady, or a sitting president for that matter, to campaign so enthusiastically for a presidential candidate".

Clinton declared herself "appalled" by what she said was an attack on 240 years of U.S. democracy. "Aretha, Patti, Smokey", Obama said to open the show. I said that. We can't say it.

The theme of Obama's speech was finding hope.

Obama said the White House is the "People's House", so it makes sense that it reflect the diversity, imagination and ingenuity of the American people. Some suggested that it may have been a dig at Hillary Clinton and her husband's affairs, and the line gained attention when it was picked up by the Drudge Report. "Can't do it", she said.

"They are trying to convince you that your vote doesn't matter that the outcome has already been determined and you shouldn't even bother to make your voice heard", she continued, adding that the USA democracy is revered around the world and free elections are the best way to choose leaders.

"We need that positivity", Rutman said. And when Obama goes high, we all know where Trump goes. But it's not just the hard hitting topics like girls' education and wage equality that she's here for.

Who's the strategic genius on Team Trump who thought this was a good idea?

Rana Singh Sodhi from India said the way Trump puts people in groups is scary. "We can not elect a man to be president who helped lead the birther movement - a racist effort to delegitimize the first African American president in our history". "We are all different immigrants with different faiths".

Clinton has a comprehensive plan to raise the minimum wage, improve schools, implement free college tuition and more, Obama said, adding, "Her opponent has tweets".

Even among Clinton's so-called "uber-surrogates" - the president, Vice President Joe Biden, former President Bill Clinton, Sen.

But Republican Senator Jeff Flake said Trump was "beyond the pale" and onetime presidential candidate Senator Lindsey Graham said if Trump loses, it will be "because he failed as a candidate".

When Trump was asked at Wednesday's debate if he will accept the outcome of the election, and if he loses, concede to the victor, he refused to say.

Mrs. Obama spoke at a student workshop where Michelle Williams and Yolanda Adams answered questions.

According to poll data, over half the Americans have consistently viewed her favourably, and her appeal goes beyond demographic boundaries. They just know that I was at home to tuck them in at night, and it keeps them grounded, and, and children, the children in our country have to know that they come first. The state elected Clinton to the US Senate twice.

In closing, Obama challenged voters personally.

Asked again by the moderator, Trump said "I'll tell you at the time. Are we gonna get this done?"
