On the heels of the circus that was the Republican National Convention last week in Cleveland, the Democratic National Convention kicked off Monday in Philly.
While the convention’s first day was full of unity and debate about the issues at hand, one of the most highly anticipated parts of the convention was when Michelle Obama gave her address to the party.
Many wondered what the First Lady would have to say in the wake of the RNC and the case of Melania Trump plagiarizing her 2008 DNC Speech.
As usual, Mrs. Obama was full of eloquence and poise, declaring:
“Don’t let anyone ever tell you that this country isn’t great, that we somehow need to make it great again.”
She also came forth with her support for Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton:
“I am here tonight because in this election, there is only one person I trust with this responsibility, one person who I believe is truly qualified to be president of the United States, and that is our friend Hillary Clinton.”
Check out the rest of what the First Lady had to say in the clip below.
