An excerpt from Michelle Obama‘s upcoming memoir is causing quite a bit of controversy in Washington, D.C.
Not because it’s inflammatory, but because it’s a completely reasonable perspective on how dangerous Donald Trump can be, something we’ve become all too numb to.
She simply said Trump’s Birtherism put her family at risk from racist “wingnuts and kooks” who might really believe the rhetoric — the type of people who might, say, send her a pipe bomb in the mail — and she could “never forgive” that recklessness.
When asked about this statement, Trump didn’t apologize for his well-documented lies about Barack Obama‘s birth certificate — he’s never done that. He didn’t say the First Lady is entitled to her opinion, which would have been the classy thing to say.
No, we went for straight RIDICULOUSNESS, saying:
“Oh, Michelle Obama said that? I haven’t seen it. I guess she wrote a book. She got paid a lot of money to write a book.”
Uh, yeah. That’s how it works. People whose stories everyone wants to hear write those stories down and publishers give them money.
The gall of a man with a golden toilet casting dispersions on a First Lady for selling books. Ugh.
“And they always insist that you come up with controversial-“
He just stops that sentence. Let’s be honest, most of the last few words were basically nonsense chaff he was spewing while coming up with his deflection. Which was this:
“Well, I’ll give you a little controversy back. I’ll never forgive him for what he did to our United States military by not funding it properly. It was depleted. Everything was old and tired and I came in and had to fix it, and I’m in the process of spending tremendous amounts of money. So I’ll never forgive him for what he did to our military.
I’ll never forgive him for what he did in many other ways which I’ll talk to you about in the future.”
In case y’all haven’t learned to speak Trump, that last part was to let us know the B.S. tank was running on E.
“What he did, because she talked about safety, what he did to our military made this country very unsafe for you and you and you.”
He actually pointed at reporters.
We just hope this is treated as the nonsense deflection it is. What we really need to be focusing on is the truth in what Michelle was saying.
She was scared for her safety. And rightfully so.
Trump tells unstable people over and over again the country is under attack by the press, Democrats, Republicans he doesn’t like. They’re all “enemies of the people.”
And he doesn’t care what havoc comes out of it.
Anyway, watch Trump come up with his B.S. in real time (below):

Frankly, there’s only one adequate rebuttal to all that.
