Now not only Barack Obama is tearing into Donald Trump, so is his wife! Michelle Obama spoke on Thursday at a rally supporting Hillary Clinton about how bad Trump is for saying that he would only accept the results if he won.
Note: The following has both sourced news elements and editorial pieces, reflecting the opinion of the writer.
She also reprimanded him for saying that the election could be rigged. In my opinion it seems Democrats are a little too worried about everyone suspecting a rigged election.
Lectured By the President’s Wife

Michelle Obama spoke to a Phoenix, Arizona crowd about how the claims Trump made are “to convince you that your vote doesn’t matter … that you shouldn’t even bother to make your voice heard. They are trying to take away your hope.”
At the last debate between the two candidates, Trump said that he would keep everyone in suspense over if he would accept the results of the election. That isn’t the Trump style. Well, he altered that the following morning by saying that he would only accept them if he were to win! Now that’s a true Trump fashion!
Complaints from both sides
Complaining some more, the President’s wife said, “Our Democracy is revered around the world … free elections are the best way on Earth to choose our leaders. This is how we elected John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, two George Bushes, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. When a presidential candidate threatens to ignore our voices and reject the outcome of this election, he is threatening the very idea of America itself.”
Republican and Democrats alike have begun to complain about his comments. John McCain was one of them who said that Americans should, “respect the decision of the majority even when we disagree with it. Especially when we disagree with it.” Sure, you should respect it, but you shouldn’t always have to go with it. If the majority were to begin jumping off of cliffs should the minority do so as well? To suggest that they should would be true Democrat fashion. Democrats want all of America to fall behind like good robots.
Then directing her comments to Trump she said, “You do not keep American Democracy in suspense … too many people have marched and protested and fought and died for this democracy.” Does she realize she’s freaking out about Trump simply saying he won’t be all proud of Hillary if she were to win?
Mainstream media has been attacking Donald Trump over the idea that he isn’t being supportive enough. How about the fact that Hillary Clinton and her posse declining to shake hands with the Trump…Is that not as worthy of media attention? It’s customary to shake hands and be respectful, but Hillary Clinton decided to be petty. She even requested a specific set-up so that her husband could stay away from Trump’s family during this time.
Hillary Clinton continues to evade media attention for her wrongdoings. She can do what Trump cannot and get away with it. She didn’t want her husband around Trump because she knows he they will point it out. Media doesn’t point out the fact that she wouldn’t show proper respect with a handshake because they have her back. Trump failed to say that he would treat Hillary like a winner if she won. Clinton failed to show an inch of respect towards the Republican campaign.
