PHILADELPHIA – When performers in the entertainment industry feel they have delivered an exceptional performance, they often talk about “dropping the mic” as a boisterous gesture to indicate there’s nothing that can be done to top their act.
Michelle Obama should have dropped the mic after her Monday night speech at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
The First Lady gave a stirring speech that detailed her experience of raising two African-American daughters in a White House that was built by slaves. She celebrated the poise her husband, President Barack Obama, has displayed in guiding America to higher heights despite the vicious attacks levied at him during the past eight years. And as expected, she offered a passionate endorsement for Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president of the United States.
After her speech, President Obama responded by tweeting, “Incredible speech by an incredible woman. Couldn’t be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle.”
