Former First Lady Michelle Obama Encourages Followers To Turn ‘Feelings Into Action’ Following Presidential Debate
If you thought you’d heard the last from former First Lady Michelle Obama on the realm of politics, think again.
Obama recently created a post on social media platform Instagram where she urged her supporters who were “disappointed” by President Trump’s behavior during the first presidential debate held Tuesday night, to turn their feelings into actions.
“If you were turned off by the President’s behavior last night, I feel you. Believe me, I do,” Obama said in an Instagram post on Wednesday, which featured a photograph of former Vice President Joe Biden. “But we can’t let him win by tuning out altogether. That’s what he wants.”
Obama also explained how Biden supporters can transform their feelings into action in a way that can boost the Democratic candidate’s campaign.
“So turn those feelings into action — turn them into votes for my friend, [Joe Biden],” she wrote. “It’s the only way we can get out of this chaos and restore some stability to this country. You can start by reaching out to everyone you know. Make sure they’re registered. Make sure they know how and when they’re going to vote. And then follow up with them, every day, to make sure they cast their ballot. Because in this election, we’ve got to vote for Joe in numbers that cannot be denied.”
If President Trump was aggressive — and he certainly was — it’s not because he’s simply a mean-spirited jerk. What choice did the man have when Chris Wallace, who was supposed to be an impartial moderator, injected himself into the debate and essentially became a second opponent for the president?
Trump is a back alley brawler. He fights back. Folks don’t seem to be comfortable having a strong man who is willing to defend himself so aggressively and call people out for their corruption sitting in the White House.
But that’s exactly what we need.
