On Tuesday, October 6, former first lady Michelle Obama made an impassioned plea to the nation, urging voters to support Vice President Joe Biden in his bid for the presidency. The former first lady did not mince words in the 24-minute video, as she railed against President Trump and made it clear that his irresponsibility has exacerbated the issues plaguing our nation. "Right now our country is in chaos because of a president who isn't up to the job," she said, taking the time to point out that the offense has only been made worse because of the President's unwillingness to speak the truth: "We simply cannot trust this president to tell us the truth about anything."
She appealed to working-class Americans, reminding them of the damage done to the country due to the president's determination to dismiss the COVID-19 pandemic, his unwillingness to distance himself from separatist alt-right groups, and his focus on using the power of this office to enrich himself and his friends.
"He and his party drag their feet to provide necessary relief for people whose lives have been decimated under his watch," she continued, "Thankfully, we have the chance to elect a president who can meet this moment. A leader who has the character and experience to put an end to this chaos, start solving these problems, and help lighten the load for families all across the country. And that leader is Joe Biden."
She painted a picture of Vice President Biden as an integrous man of faith and family, willing to work to help ensure a better future for all Americans. She contrasted Biden's character against the President's by pointing out his commitment to developing a plan for schools to deal with the pandemic, his desire for a safe and effective vaccine, as well as his willingness to listen to scientists and doctors, something the President has proved unwilling to do.
She believes it is time for Americans to elect the type of leader who will help heal the damage that has been done for the past 4 years, and that Leader is Joe Biden. "A leader who will help heal this nation, and instead of tearing people apart, he will bring people together."
