Former First Lady Michelle Obama released a nearly half-hour endorsement of former VP Joe Biden entitled “Closing Argument.” Obama meandered through a valley of different talking points throughout the long endorsement. She touched on issues of racism, police brutality, “peaceful” protests, and of course, President Donald Trump. The former First Lady spoke about how inept Trump’s response to the virus has been and all but laid the blame at his feet for everything going wrong in the country. Although “Closing Argument” is billed as a Joe Biden endorsement, not much was said about the 2020 Democratic Presidential Nominee.
The Closing Argument starts off by immediately attacking President Trump’s virus response. This was most likely filmed before the President was hospitalized for the virus himself, as Michelle put out a statement on Twitter wishing “everyone” who has contracted the virus well. The tone of the long talk is a clear harkening back to the speaking style of Barack Obama. Mrs. Obama’s speech writing team may or may not have done this with the intention of giving the listener a feeling of nostalgia.
Attacks on the President did not stop with Michelle Obama criticizing his handling of the virus. She eventually used the big bad “R” word to describe him and his tenure in office. One key point she brought up was Trump’s pledge to preserve the American dream by discouraging low-income housing from being built in high-income areas. According to Obama, this idea is “racist” because it keeps minorities out of the suburbs. As if only minorities are low income and no minorities live in the suburbs. Michelle and Barack should know plenty about minorities living in suburbs considering their multi-million dollar Martha’s Vineyard estate, but that’s a different story.
