*(Via MSN News) – One of the most highly anticipated moments of the Democratic National Convention will come Monday, when Michelle Obama will deliver an address that is expected to shine a harsh light on President Trump while urging Democrats to get out and vote.
The former first lady and one of the nation’s most popular political figures, Obama has grown increasingly frustrated with the country’s direction.
“I think she’ll come hard at Trump, in the most artful way,” said one ally to the former first lady. “I think it will be one of the most defining and memorable speeches of this entire cycle.”
“She has the most powerful voice to get out the vote,” the ally said.
Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is counting on Obama to jump-start a convention held under the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic.
There will be no roaring crowds or parties, but the Biden team is hoping that speakers such as the former first lady can excite voters as if they were speaking at a more traditional convention.
The former first lady will speak in a pretaped address the same night as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and two nights before Barack Obama, the former president.
Joel Payne, a Democratic strategist who served as the director of African American paid media and advertising on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, predicted Michelle Obama would deliver “an intensely personal speech, maybe even more so than President Obama’s.”
