FLOTUS, inspiring, defiant, celebratory - triggered tears in the convention hall and goose bumps across the country
Barack Obama's response to wife Michelle's stunning speech has gone viral
Michelle Obama’s speech
to the Democratic National Convention
received plaudits from everyone
. The 15 minute address -
inspiring, defiant, celebratory
- triggered tears in the convention hall and goose bumps across the country.
The First Lady spoke of her support for Hillary Clinton and creating an environment in which “my daughters take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States”.
“I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. And I watch my daughters - two beautiful intelligent black young women - play on the White House lawn,” she said.
Among those quick to praise the speech was her husband, Barack Obama, who is due to address the convention on Wednesday. His tweet was apparently the most retweeted post of the night.
“Incredible speech by an incredible woman,” he said.
“Couldn't be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle.”
By lunchtime on Wednesday, the tweet had been shared more than 140,00 times and 380,000 people had liked it.
