‘She crushed you’: Internet piles on Trump for snarling tweet aimed at Michelle Obama

‘She crushed you’: Internet piles on Trump for snarling tweet aimed at Michelle Obama

Donald Trump on Tuesday attacked former first lady Michelle Obama, who closed the first night of the 2020 Democratic National Convention to wild praise for her speech — including from Fox News personalities.


Responding to the popular first lady, that president condescendingly wrote, “Somebody please explain to Michelle Obama that Donald J. Trump would not be here, in the beautiful White House, if it weren’t for the job done by your husband, Barack Obama,” after three years of mostly avoiding addressing a woman who is considered one of the most popular personalities in America.

Needless to say, Twitter commenters let the president know that she scored a hit on him and his days are numbered in office, with one person stating: “She pushed you in a locker and shut the door.”
