But did you catch FLOTUS throw some shade?

You know its hard to believe that it has been eight years since I first came to this convention to talk with you about why I thought my husband should be president. Remember how I told you abut his character and conviction, his decency and his grace, the traits that weve seen every day since he served our country in the White House.

Michelle Obama Democratic National Convention speech July 25, 2016


Now why would FLOTUS say a thing like that?

12. I wish

 

Pretty sure Michelle's completely ruled out a future political career.

Obama on the subject:

""No, no," Mr. Obama said. "No, no, no...no, no."

"Let me tell ya, there are three things that are certain in life: death, taxes and Michelle is not running for president. That, I can tell you," he said. "

Also if they changed their mind, I'd see her run for a Senate seat similar to how Hillary did so the earliest I could see her run, assuming they change their mind RIGHT NOW, is 2028.

5. Precise, understated, unmistakable shade but

as Andy Borowitz said, "Michelle Obama is way too classy to do a Melania joke tonight, and that saddens me"

11. She.

Is one incredible woman; I kind of hoped she'd run, from FLOTUS to POTUS!
