First Lady Michelle Obama built on the positive momentum Hillary Clinton gained from the first presidential debate by taking apart Donald Trump in Philadelphia, PA.

The First Lady hit Trump for his birtherism:

Mrs. Obama said, “There are those who question and continue to question for the last eight years whether my husband was born in this country and let me say, hurtful deceitful questions deliberately designed to undermine his presidency. Questions that can not be blamed on others or swept under the rug by an insincere sentence uttered at a press conference.”

Obama also hit Trump for not being adult enough to occupy the White House:

She said, “We also need somebody who is steady and measured, because when making life and death, war and peace decisions, the president can’t just pop off, or lash out irrationally. No. We need an adult in the White House. I guarantee you.”

The First Lady also urged young people to get out and vote:

First Lady Obama said, “Elections aren’t just about who votes, but who doesn’t vote, and that is especially true of young people like you.”

For Donald Trump to win, the electorate has to be older, whiter, and more Republican than it was in 2008 and 2012. If the Obama coalition turns out in similar numbers as they did in 2012, Hillary Clinton will win. Donald Trump isn’t riding a wave of popularity. His only chance of winning comes if Democrats don’t vote.

Mrs. Obama’s destruction of Trump in Philadelphia was designed to get young, and African-American voters fired up and out to the polls. Democrats are putting their plan in place to motivate the base in the final weeks of the election.

Donald Trump’s downward spiral was only made worse by the First Lady’s compelling campaigning for Hillary Clinton.
