Michelle Obama Shaken

News reports find Michelle Obama shaken by the recent Trump allegations at a recent Hillary Clinton campaign rally.

Earlier today, the First Lady spoke for the Democratic presidential candidate at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, New Hampshire. In addition to defending Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama also openly condemned Republican candidate Donald Trump. More specifically, she denounced the comments made from the released Access Hollywood audio from 2005.

Following the recent sexual allegations leveled against Trump, Michelle Obama remarks that the recent news has “shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted.” She also remarked “This wasn’t just locker room banter, this was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior.” After the release of the audio to the public, Trump apologized for the offense of his words. However, he emphasized his comments as only “locker room talk,” deny any actual sexual assault. Still, many voters and speakers including Michelle Obama spoke against his original comments

“This is not normal. This is not politics as usual,” Obama said. “This isn’t about politics its about basic human decency. Enough is enough, this has got to stop right now.” Though Obama never refers to Trump by name, many news pundits clearly took her comments to refer to Hillary’s opponent Trump. According to an aide, Michelle Obama prepared to speak about Trump for quite some time.

With less than one month away from the presidential election on November 8th, the candidates continue to debate each other. The third and final presidential debate is set for October 19th.
