Michelle Obama is not painting a rosy picture of a future under President Trump's second term.
The former first lady headlined the Democratic National Convention's first night on Monday, where she took swipes at Trump's time in office and relayed how important she felt it was to elect former Vice President Joe Biden. She outlined how "Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country" who is "clearly in over his head," and pivoted to an even more dire message.
Still, Obama knew her speech "won't be heard by some people." "But enough of you know me by now," Obama continued. "You know I hate politics, but you also know I care about this nation" and "all of our children." She then left viewers with a final message she wanted to stick, saying "If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can and they will if we don't make a change this election."
