The Donald said he was a fan of the first lady's performance Monday night at the convention in Philadelphia where she went to bat for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Sorry, Democrats.
Perhaps this is why, on the opening night of the Democratic National Convention, she reminds us that she wakes up every morning in a house built by slaves.
Though Michelle never mentioned Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump by name, she referred to many of his policies and campaign strategies. "Well I'll tell you what kind of a man - a man who must never be president of the United States", she said.
Clarkson wasn't the only one gushing over the first lady's speech. Three hours later, the paper tweeted: "Stop the Presses!"
America, the First Lady said, has come a long way in its relatively short history and the real story of the nation is found in it's overcoming the horrors of its early beginnings.
Even Trump, who has an insult ready for any Democrat who crosses his path, had only nice things to say.
'I want someone with the proven strength to persevere, someone who knows this job and takes it seriously, someone who understands that the issues a president faces are not black and white and can not be boiled down to 140 characters. White House officials have described him as a "convert" to Clinton's cause who, after fighting her bitterly in the 2008 Democratic primary, saw her abilities firsthand when he named her secretary of state. Mrs. Obama wore her hair loose, parted to one side, with the cap-sleeve dress.
Her speech seemed to unify Clinton and Sanders supporters, as the delegates waved "Michelle" signs passed out before she took the stage.
She has strict rules about how much time she spends on the road, sets her schedule well in advance and sticks to it.
Michelle Obama's chief speechwriter is 38-year-old Sarah Hurwitz, who's been with her exclusively for seven years and on the Obama team for eight. "No calls. No anything'".
Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland emphasized the historic nature of the moment in nominating Clinton Tuesday afternoon.
And, after President Obama tweeted his congrats, his heartfelt praise became most re-tweeted tweet of the day, with 120,000-plus sharing his words. But there is little evidence of a close friendship. She could also be Hillary Clinton's secret weapon in this election. "And I am here tonight because in this election there is only one person who I trust with that responsibility, only one person who I believe is truly qualified to be president of the United States, and that is our friend, Hillary Clinton".
There are limits to her powers of persuasion, though. "I liked her speech", he added. Barack Obama, launched his presidential campaign against Clinton in 2007.
As for talk of political aspirations for the first lady herself, her husband has a big bucket of cold water at the ready. The president also spoke out in support of his wife.
