Michelle Obama Slams Trump for ‘Unconscionable’ Efforts To Overturn Election Results

Former First Lady Michelle Obama is taking aim at President Donald Trump for trying to overturn the results of the presidential election while the COVID-19 pandemic is raging throughout the country. 

In a thread on Twitter on Monday, Obama wrote, “Your vote is your voice. It’s your power. And right now, from the President of the United States on down, we’re seeing and hearing just how desperate some are to take that power away.”

“They want us to believe that their pride is more important than our democracy,” she continued. 

“And this is just unconscionable at a time when a staggering number of Americans are dying every day from a virus that was downplayed for far too long. It’s unconscionable to focus on overturning an election rather than helping struggling families or distributing a vaccine.”

While President-elect Joe Biden won the November 3 presidential election, Trump has refused to concede and has made unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud.

In the days after the election, his reelection campaign filed dozens of lawsuits to contest the results in battleground states that he lost. 

Now, the president’s allies in Congress are preparing to object to the Electoral College vote count — an effort that experts say has practically no chance of succeeding at overturning the election.

The president has taken to Twitter to warn Republican lawmakers who do not join the efforts, as IJR reported

Additionally, Trump asked Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) to “find” enough votes to overturn the state’s presidential election results.

Obama continued as she urged Georgia voters to not “think that our job is done” after Biden’s victory as she noted the crucial runoff elections on Tuesday, which will determine the balance of power in the Senate.

“These runoffs will decide whether President-Elect Biden has a Senate that will work with him rather than just obstruct him at every turn,” she wrote. 

She has previously accused Trump of using “groundless conspiracy theories — whether for personal or political gain” and putting “our country’s health and security in danger.”

Additionally, she urged “our nation’s leaders, regardless of party, to honor the electoral process and do your part to encourage a smooth transition of power, just as sitting presidents have done throughout our history.”

Obama’s comments come as the U.S. is seeing an average of 214,270 new cases per day over the past week. Additionally, the death toll from the virus is over 353,000, and more than 20.8 million Americans have tested positive for the virus.

    1. See what I mean, Jayjay? Although I can’t really remember Unreal Lee doing this before. There are probably others lurking waiting for the chance to do it, too.

  1. Does the truth hurt there Shirl??? I believe I’ve been called more nasty names by trump supporters than “legs wide open”. Yet you support a president that has a vile mouth and according to his aids, uses the F bomb a lot! Interesting…

    1. Surely is just using the tried and true tactic of projection. Actually, she has used projection ever since she became a member on IJR. If she keeps it up, she will become the THIRD member in IJR’s Projectionist Club.

  2. Certainly not a mystery as to who the foul mouthed Democrats are who are commenting here. Classy is not a word for which they are familiar.
    As for Michelle O’s opinion on anything especially school lunches …..ppfftt

    1. Surely sounds confused.

      It seems as if she has ignored the recordings of Melania Antoinette. Classy is not the first descriptive word that comes to mind.

  3. Michelle Obama went to Harvard and got her bachelors degree from Princeton and her Juris Doctor degree from Harvard.
    Legs Wide Open Melania is a low IQ trophy wife who hooked a wealthy man to mooch off of after her unsuccessful “career” as a nude model. She even posed with Ron Jeremy!! Lol. Y’all are drinking way too much trump koolade.

    1. Someone who earned anywhere from $30 to $50 million in her modeling career would be deemed successful – she posed for 2 nude photos which don’t define her career; I looked up Ron Jeremy on Wikipedia and there’s no mention of her so when did she pose with him?
      Who cares about Harvard and Princeton? Melania Trump has brought class, style, and education back to the position of First Lady. Michelle will be known as the First Lady the changed schoolkids lunches and the kids disliked them so much they ended up in the trash bins.

      1. For the less sophisticated Europe is much more forgiving of nudity than we are. Their choose. But that’s all the haters focus on. Probably can’t get a real woman. Just a guess.

        1. Wow Shirl…your standard for “a real woman” is fake boobs and model looks?? You sure you aren’t a man?
          Pretty superficial don’t you think?

        2. “But that’s all the haters focus on. Probably can’t get a real woman. Just a guess.” Surely

          I am confused, Surely.

          Is it “just a guess” or is there something deeper going on with your passive-aggressive and public attitude?

          As I explained before, but it requires repeating again (and again?), I don’t see the “haters” that YOU seem to see? Who is imagining what, here? I don’t hate Melania Antoinette and I honestly can’t think of having said anything to give anybody that kind of skewed opinion. If I have, nobody ever pointed out what it was to make anyone think that, so evidence of “hate” is required, here, or else we have to assume you made it all up.

          As I explained to you a few days ago, just because I (or anyone else) say something that you don’t like does NOT make it “hate”. As a “professional”, you should have known that. How many times are you going to make me repeat myself, Surely?

      2. How rude for Michelle to want American children to eat healthy food! Doesn’t high fat and salty fast food taste so much better to kids? No big deal if diabetes is running rampant in kids right?
        Melania did a number of nude and semi nude shoots. Trumpturds become enraged if any dares malign Mafia Don’s wife yet they didn’t hesitate to call Michelle horrible names.
        “She looks like a primate”.
        “She’s fat and looks like a man”
        “Ape in heels”. “not classy”
        “Gorilla face”
        The really sad part is you trumpturd women attacking other women just because you don’t agree with her political beliefs. My money is on racism being a factor.

        1. “She’s fat and looks like a man” Jayjay

          You missed the previous era on IJR when members here CONSTANTLY called her “Michael” and used similar male references to her. And now Surely seems so upset by nicknames. Until we see her fight those on the right doing this, too, she has NO credibility here.

  4. She’s so beau. Lmao. Mrs Trump is a super model and doesn’t get acknowledged for such. Michelle needs to never miss an opportunity to be silent. The only reason they’re for Joe is because they committed crimes and are about to be exposed.

  5. Rather hypocritical. Overturning the (2016) election was exactly what the Russiagate scheme and Mueller investigation were about.

  6. Michele Obama is not a player anymore. Her opinion doesn’t count for half the country. All Uncle Joe is is a ditto of Obama. Except he is the wrong color and has no brain left. IOW shut up Michelle.
