During the first night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, First Lady Michelle Obama took to the stage and delivered an emotional speech that brought the audience to tears.
Looking stunning in a cobalt blue sheath dress by Christian Siriano, the first lady condemned the hateful language “that we hear from public figures on TV,” saying “our motto is, when they go low, we go high,” CNN noted.
The FLOTUS also took a stab at Donald Trump‘s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan, using a personal story of raising her children in a house that was built by slaves.
“This election — every election — is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of our lives. 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,” she said.
“I am here tonight because I know that that is the kind of president that Hillary Clinton will be, and that’s why in this election, I’m with her,” she continued. “Because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters, and all our sons and daughters, now take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States.”
