Top 11 Quotes From Michelle Obama At The DNC

First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech on the opening night the Democratic National Convention July 25th, 2016 will go down in history as one of the most incredibly powerful, stunning, passionate yet forceful as she made her case for Hillary Clinton for the White House.

As she delivered line by line, sentence after sentence I could feel the goosebumps covering my body. At one time she choked up, there I was getting all choked up as well. It’s a night I would not forget. It’s a moment in history that will remain in my heart forever.

Her husband and the 44th President of the United States had this to say about her, “Incredible speech by an incredible woman. Couldn’t be more proud and our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle.”

“I thought her delivery was excellent,” Donald Trump tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I thought she did a very good job. I liked her speech.” Let’s just leave that as, wow!
