Speaking on Monday at a fundraiser in La Jolla, California for Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama said the first lady, who is not fond of politics, is campaigning hard for Clinton to keep Donald Trump out of the White House, the Huffington Post reports.
The president explained that “the passion that she’s brought to campaigning this time speaks to the degree that this election is different, the choice is different.”
Although he disagreed with the policies of his GOP rivals, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Mitt Romney, the president said they were “honorable people,” and he had no concern about them destroying our democratic system if either of them were elected president.
“And so part of the reason Michelle is working the way she is, is because she understands, as I understand, that some more fundamental values are at stake in this election,” the president said. “It has to do with our basic standards of decency ― how do we treat people.”
The first lady slammed Trump over a hot-mic recording of him boasting about kissing and groping women.
“I can’t believe that I am saying that a candidate for the President of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women,” Michelle Obama stated. “I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core in a way I couldn’t have predicted.”
The president said the equality of women is at stake in this election.
