As several women step forward to claim Donald Trump sexually assaulted them, the First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama has stepped out to condemn his actions and the surfacing of that tape.
Her condemnation of his actions comes 24 days before election day.
Here I am, out on the campaign trail in an election where we have consistently been hearing hurtful, hateful language about women — language that has been painful for so many of us, not just as women, but as parents trying to protect our children and raise them to be caring, respectful adults, and as citizens who think that our nation’s leaders should meet basic standards of human decency.
I can’t believe that I’m saying that a candidate for President of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women. I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted. I’d love nothing more to pretend that this isn’t happening.This is not something that we can ignore.
