If you weren’t absolutely in love with Michelle Obama before today, then you certainly are now!
The First Lady just placed her bid for the 2020 presidential election with a powerful and emotional speech in support of Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention that will be remembered for years to come. She managed to take direct shots at republican candidate Donald Trump, without mentioning his name, to making sure America understands the need to lay a bountiful foundation for our “sons and daughters,” Obama’s speech electrified viewers, and Twitter.
Take a look at the best Twitter reactions to FLOTUS’ speech:
