*“I can tell you that the men in my life do not talk about women like this, and I know that my family is not unusual,” Michelle Obama said Thursday during a rally for Hillary Clinton at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, N.H., on Thursday.

The topic, of course, was Donald Trump’s recent lewd comments unearthed from 2005 — words the first lady referred to as “shocking” and “demeaning.”

“Last week we saw this candidate actually bragging about sexually assaulting women,” said the First Lady. “I can’t believe that I’m saying that a candidate for President of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women. I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted.”

“I’d love nothing more to pretend that this isn’t happening,” the First Lady continued. “This is not something that we can ignore. This is not something we can just sweep under the rug as just another disturbing footnote in a sad election season.”

“It doesn’t matter what party you belong to — Democrat, Republican, Independent — no woman deserves to be treated this way. No one deserves this kind of abuse,” she added. “This wasn’t ‘locker room banter,’” the term Trump used to describe his words. “This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior.”

“If all of this is painful to us as grown women, what do you think this is doing to our children?” Obama asked.

Later, she prompted the crowd to finish her now infamous quote from July’s Democratic National Convention.

“Remember this, when they go low, we go [high],” she called out. “Yes we do.”

The First Lady encouraged attendees not only vote, but “step up and start organizing,” including making calls, going door-to-door, and sharing stories on social media.

“The choice you make November 8th could determine whether we have a President who treats people with respect or not … a President who thinks women deserve the right to make our own choices about our bodies and our health, or not,” she said.

  1. Michele Obama might want to check on the lyrics to the songs of the rappers she has invited to the White House and might want to check their criminal records as well.
