Michelle Obama sought to encumber the women who voted for Donald Trump with guilt as she spoke about their actions and them as women in disparaging terms.
According to Michelle Obama, “As far as I’m concerned, any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice”. She goes on with, “You didn’t like your voice. You like the thing you’re told to do.”
Well, Donald Trump won and Michelle Obama didn’t lose her voice. In fact, she has a bigger voice now under Trump than she had under her husband.
“When they go low, we go high” was not evident as No Manners Michelle hit a low one against all women who freely voted for the candidate of their choice. In America that right for women is afforded under the 19th Amendment to the USA Constitution and it is in bad manners to try to fix the election after the fact by demeaning women for exercising that freedom as well as their right to select the candidate they want to see in office.
The reason women didn’t get the right to vote for so long was because men didn’t think women were savvy enough or smart enough or current enough in affairs outside the home to pick the right candidate. Michelle Obama through her hurtful words obviously agreed with the concerns of those men, that led to the discrimination against all women for so long.
Michelle Obama continued by saying that part of hers and her husband’s legacy was to lead with grace. Yet, there was nothing graceful about those demeaning comments about the women who didn’t vote for Obama’s candidate.
Hillary Clinton lost a primary to Barack Obama. Did Michelle vote for Hillary Clinton during that primary?
Please don’t tell people how to vote or for whom. It is our right to make up our own minds. You didn’t like Russia and every other country on earth weighing in on our politics and candidate choices.
Hillary Clinton is not my voice, nor has she ever been my voice. Barack Obama wasn’t and Donald Trump isn’t. Michelle Obama isn’t either. I am my own voice and I will vote for whomever I want without apology or explanation.
