Michelle Obama Barely Mentions Biden’s Name in Speech at DNC Telethon

'Unlocking the shackles of lies and mistrust with the only thing that can truly set us free: the cold hard truth...'

Former President Barack Obama has famously avoided speaking his successor’s name when criticizing the Trump Administration.

It seemed for much of her speech at the Democratic National Convention/Zoom Telethon on Monday that his wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama, would do the same about presumptive nominee Joe Biden.

Throughout the majority of her speech, Michelle barely mentioned the former vice president by name. When she did it was only to emphasize that he had left office at the “side” of her husband.

The speech did tout Biden toward the end, as if an afterthought tacked on to the end. But even then, Michelle’s body language could barely conceal her storied contempt.

Her husband is rumored to have warned Democrats not to underestimate Biden’s ability to “f*** things up,” it was reported recently.

In many of her statements of praise, Michelle seemed reflexively to shake her head “no” while mentioning Biden.

Like Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who offered a rare moment of candor in the gaslight-fest by admitting the party was growing more radical every day, Michelle broke from the format by speaking a few select truths.

“Unlocking the shackles of lies and mistrust with the only thing that can truly set us free: the cold hard truth,” she said.

However, she artfully packaged them to mislead.

She admitted that many in the country, and young people in particular, feel duped:

“They’re looking around wondering if we’ve been lying to them this whole time about who we are and what we truly value,” she said.

But she suggested it was the country to blame and not the party led by her husband and others who have pointedly misled the citizenry.

As an addendum to her 2016 speech, she confessed, “Going high does not mean putting on a smile and saying nice things when confronted by viciousness and cruelty.”

But far from referring to her own demeanor or the viciousness on the Left, she went on to claim that it was “empathy” that still led the day among Democrats.

She also acknowledged that her message was not likely to be embraced by all, but rather than blame the message claimed it was racism to blame.

“We live in a nation that is deeply divided and I am a black woman speaking at the Democratic convention,” she said.

She gave a nod to the lackluster enthusiasm for Biden:

“There is no perfect candidate, no perfect president, [but in] his ability to learn and grow, we find in that the kind of humility and maturity,” she claimed.

And she even admitted that the current skulduggery was merely politics as usual, a game long played by the Obamas.

“These tactics are not new, but this is not the time to withhold our votes in protest or play games with candidates,” she said.
