Michelle Obama To Trump: 'We Need An Adult In The White House'

Michelle Obama To Trump: 'We Need An Adult In The White House'

If you watched this week's presidential debate against Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, chances are you'll agree when I say that the latter made a fool of himself. There were so many moments but for the purposes of this article we'll focus on a particular one: when Trump said he has a "much better temperament" than Clinton. Well, the lie detector test determined that was a lie, as the Republican nominee proceeded to interrupt Clinton, as well as make some offensive remarks towards former Miss Universe Alicia Machado.

During a Clinton rally in Philadelphia on Wednesday, Michelle Obama spoke to Trump's "temperament," never referring to him by name but still offering a very necessary critique of his actions this past Monday night.

"When it comes to the qualifications we should demand in a president, to start with, we need someone who will take the job seriously. Someone who will study and prepare so that they understand the issues better than anyone on their team," Obama said. "We need someone who is steady and measured, because when making life-or-death, war-or-peace decisions, a president can't just pop off or lash out irrationally. No, we need an adult in the White House."

She also addressed Trump's boasts of not paying taxes, as well as not apologizing for perpetuating racist birther claims made at her husband, President Obama.

"[Birther questions were] deliberately designed to undermine his presidency [and] cannot be blamed on others or swept under the rug by an insincere sentence uttered at a press conference," Michelle said. "I think Barack has answered these questions with the example he's set and the dignity he's shown by going high when they go low."

Always keeping it 100 while offering the most eloquent and smoothest shade the American people will ever get from a FLOTUS. Thank you, Michelle. Check out the video below.
