CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — She didn’t mention Donald Trump by name, but Michelle Obama had some fun at the Republican presidential nominee’s expense during a campaign event for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Praising Clinton, Mrs. Obama said, “She doesn’t cry foul” and tapped her microphone. It was an apparent swipe at Trump, who said the microphone he used during the first presidential debate was defective.
“The presidency doesn’t change who you are, it reveals who you are,” Mrs. Obama said. “That’s the kind of president they will be. And trust me, a candidate is not going to suddenly change once they’re in office.”
Mrs. Obama encouraged the crowd of 1,400 to vote — and to get others to vote, too.
“This election, it’s about making a choice between two very different candidates with very different visions for our nation,” Mrs. Obama said. “Hillary Clinton has it all. She is the real deal. . I know she is more than ready, more than able to be an outstanding president for us all.”
President Barack Obama won North Carolina in 2008, but lost the state to Mitt Romney in 2012. Mrs. Obama also campaigned in Raleigh on Tuesday afternoon.
