It seems like just yesterday that first lady Michelle Obama was telling everyone how mean the United States was, but according to her speech Monday night at the Democratic National Convention, America “is the greatest country on Earth.”
The first lady also made a remark that should have Black Lives Matter supporters as well as Fox News anchor Shepard Smith seeing red.
“I want a president who will teach our children that everyone in this country matters.” -Michelle ? Obama

Is she trying to say that all lives matter? It sure sounds like it, and Shep Smith really laid into former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal for saying those very words in response to recent police shootings.
Without actually naming him, Obama took several shots at Donald Trump. Her remark about America was in direct response to Trump’s “Make America great again” campaign slogan.
NBC Nightly News tweeted:
First Lady: Don’t let anyone say the U.S. needs to be made great again — this is the greatest country on Earth. https://t.co/DebXRg6n3h

During her husband’s first run for the presidency, the first lady said that for the first time in her adult life she was proud of her country, although the then-Sen. Obama claimed it needed to be fundamentally reformed.
None of this was lost on anyone.
“Don’t ever let anyone tell you that this country isn’t great.” Michelle Obama says. Glad she’s finally proud of her country #DNCinPHL

So it went from only being proud of her country for first time at age 43 to don’t let anyone tell you this country isn’t great.Which is it?

And that remark released all the snark from people listing all the things that make America so great to Michelle Obama.

Regular Islamic terror attacks on US soil.
BLM murdering scores of US police.
What’s for an America-hater not to be proud of?

@KatiePavlich She still has to wake up in the house that slaves built to her staff of 20+ people. Living in luxury has been so difficult

Finally she said that a president can’t be “thin-skinned,” and tweeps noted that it described her husband to a t.
Michelle Obama said a Pres can’t be thin skinned or reactive….ah….she’s describing her own husband!
