Watch Michelle Obama’s powerful speech on Donald Trump’s treatment of women: 'It has shaken me to my core'

By TMG Digital | Oct 14, 2016 | COMMENTS [ 76 ]

At a rally for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire on Thursday, First Lady Michelle Obama took aim at Republican Donald Trump and the lewd comments he made about women in the incendiary 2005 videotape that surfaced last week. 

First Lady Michelle Obama at a campaign event for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire took aim at Republican Donald Trump's remaks about women in a videotape from 2005 that surfaced last week.

"I would like nothing more than to pretend that this isn't happening, and to come out here and do my normal campaign speech, it would be dishonest and disengenious for me to just move on to the next thing like this was all just a bad dream."

""This is not something that we cannot ignore," she said. "This was not just a lewd conversation, this was not just locker room banter," she said. "This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior, and actually bragging about kissing and groping women."

The First Lady's appearance comes after two women accused Donald Trump of inappropriate touching in interviews with the New York Times, claims his spokesman called fiction but which may further damage the Republican presidential candidate's chances of winning the Nov. 8 election.

The report on Wednesday was followed by a stream of similar allegations from several other women, putting more pressure on Trump as he lags Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in national opinion polls. The campaign was already struggling to contain a crisis after a video surfaced last week showing the candidate bragging in 2005 about groping women and making unwanted sexual advances.

I wish that were true. Sadly, his supporters are as bad as Zuma's. You would not believe the number of women, in 'Murica' who have said that there is nothing wrong with what he said. The Donald will take women's liberation backwards and it will be dumbass sisters who are cheering him on :(

Sure, but let's talk "the lesser of two evils". Trump is simply an incredibly thoughtless vacuum-brained bully with absolutely no conscience or respect for anyone or anything but himself. He will wreck the US and everyone in any way connected to it, for private gain. He is something of a super-zuma.

You just don't know Trump, he loves America and he is so concern about China and Russia's global influence than the Obamas and Clintons. He is super rich he don't need American money, he don't believe in entitlement mentality, I don't think he need Presidential salary. I hate what Ramaphosa have done to Marikana mine workers but I'd rather go for him than nkosazanana dlamini zuptas. she will corrupt us further.

it was also said he had an affair with Beyonce and not ONLY that, he has another squeeze who is being paid to not go to the tabloids about the affair, apparently that girl lives in the Caribbean, when Michelle heard about her husband's infidelities she demanded her mother move in with her at the white house, back then it was said their marriage was held by a political thread, they can't divorce they must keep up with appearances, I am sure some of you remember the time when Michelle appeared very unhappy when she appeared in public, that is was about round about that time when affairs of her husband were being discussed.

its very frustrating for activists against gender inequality, that this issue of rape which is very serious is being abused in this way, hillary clits has no other cards to play now is abusing rape for her own political agenda for the white house, if she was such an advocate for women issues, why didn't she deal with sexual violations committed against other women (junior employers at clinton administration) instead some sources say she piled on the abuse, another woman has now come forward claiming mr clinton raped her, so what does michelle and hillary have to say about this if they are really and truly against sexual violence incl that committed by men in the democrats?

its interesting how the murican presidential candidates, have not discussed issues through out this campaign but threw mud at each other, its a shame actually, especially for african american, who are over policed and killed most and imprisoned the most by \USA's cruel joke of a justice system, surely this is a burning issue for them to demand precise and specific answers as to what each candidate will do to stop militarisation of the USA police and actually hold the police who execute suspects on the streets to account, no? its also funny the muricans hypocrisy is shinning through their thin veiled charade of democracy, cause not so long ago their leaders are challenging President of the Philippines for doing to the suspected drug lords in the Phillipines what the american police are and have been doing to the black american (males).

funny how these rape and groping claims come also at this stage of the election game, even a reporter has come forward to claim Trump forced himself on her, long time when she did interview with him, so I ask did she suddenly get amnesia that she was sexually assaulted and only remember now when this claims are made about Trump? I only feel sorry for real rape victims, who now find their plight abused as a political tool. No doubt Trumps remarks are crude, but really? how many men make these remarks even here on Sowetan daily against women? And on the other news it emerged that the media ppl judging trump the guy who was also facilitating the 2nd debate, apparently he was accused of pedophilia activities and his case was settled out of court, so the ppl throwing mud at Trump need to check out their own conduct against women and children before they mount on the moral high ground against him, and when is Michelle going to make a powerful speech about an (alleged) rape victim of Clinton who was also interviewed, or these rape cases and comments are rated on the basis of who is sexually abusing? Again I feel sorry for real rape victims, as this issue is now being reduced to a mere political tool. All because the feminazis want a vote by hook and by crook.

Who only want to be voted in power cause they have vaginas. As that's the ONLY Hillary ticket, besides being too friendly with the wallstreet wolves and occasionally hanging out with a member of KKK Clan who was her mentor, so whatever mud femanzi clinton might want to throw at Trump she is worse than him.
