After several news organizations decided to declare Joe Biden as the winner for the 2020 election, Michelle Obama took it upon herself to demonize Trump voters. Millions of Americans voted for Trump in 2016 and millions more again in 2020. Despite ballots still being counted and recounted in several states and pending lawsuits from the Trump Campaign, the media chose to preemptively announce a winner, and the Democrats are celebrating.
Mrs. Obama has no evidence to support her claim that Trumpers voted for “lies, hate, chaos, and division”, but she doesn’t care. She’s just another leftist slandering those who think differently than her. This is America for crying out loud, where free speech is supposed to live and ring free without being attacked for having a different opinion; but unfortunately, those days are long over.
In an Instagram post that has received over 2 million likes and over 20,000 comments, the former first lady said, “I’m beyond thrilled that my friend Joe Biden and our first Black and Indian-American woman Vice President, Kamala Harris, are headed to restore some dignity, competence, and heart at the White House. Our country sorely needs it. Thank you to all of you who poured every ounce of your hope and determination into this democracy over these past four years, registering voters, getting them to the polls, keeping folks informed. More votes were cast in this election than ever before. It’s because of you.”
She continued on to say that despite the Democrats’ claim for victory that they are just getting started and that having won isn’t a “magic wand”. She even said that voting for Trump was considered the status quo, even though Trump is anything but status quo. If it was status quo to vote for Trump, his supporters wouldn’t be attacked in the streets daily.
She wrote, “And after we celebrate — and we should all take a moment to exhale after everything we’ve been through — let’s remember that this is just a beginning. It’s a first step. Voting in one election isn’t a magic wand, and neither is winning one. Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division. We’ve got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us.”
Mrs. Obama concluded her post speaking about the important need for everyone to vote and for every vote to be counted, well at least she got that part right. Ironic that she said our country should be making it easier not harder to cast a ballot when it’s her party that are trying to quiet red voters; like when Arizona voters were given sharpies to fill out their ballots.
“But we’ve also got to recognize that the path to progress will always be uphill. We’ll always have to scrape and crawl up toward that mountaintop. And two years from now, four years from now, there will once again be no margin for error. We see now the reality that we can’t take even the tiniest part of our democracy for granted. Every single vote must count — and every single one of us must vote. And as a country, we should be making it easier, not harder to cast a ballot.”
