A former resident of the White House appeared to instruct the Republican Party to accept media speculation about the outcome of the presidential election.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama shocked Americans by openly attacking the Trump administration for challenging the outcome of the presidential election.
Obama told her 44 million social media followers President Trump’s decision to exercise his right to scrutinize the way votes were counted somehow endangers the nation. She also urged the GOP to stop investigating several election fraud allegations and accept media commentary that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden won the election.
“This is not a game, so I want to urge all Americans … to honor the electoral process and do your part to encourage a smooth transition of power,” she said on Instagram. “The presidency does not belong to any one individual or any one party [and,] to pretend that it does, to play along with these groundless conspiracy theories—whether for personal or political gain—is to put our country’s health and security in danger.”
Obama asked the Trump administration to surrender the Oval Office to the Democrats voluntarily, so the party can easily seize control of the White House.
“[Once] the American people had spoken and one of the great responsibilities of the presidency is to listen … my husband and I instructed our staffs to do what George and Laura Bush had done for us. Run a respectful, seamless transition of power—one of the hallmarks of American democracy,” she said.
She openly admitted she resented President Trump and accused him of being prejudiced toward those belonging to another race without providing any verifiable evidence.
“Donald Trump had spread racist lies about my husband that had put my family in danger,” she said. “I have to be honest and say that none of this was easy for me … that was not something I was ready to forgive but I knew that for the sake of our country I had to find the strength and maturity to put my anger aside.”
She even claimed she was heartbroken when former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 general election.
“I was hurt and disappointed—but the votes had been counted, and Donald Trump had won,” she said. “Because our democracy is so much bigger than anybody’s ego, our love of country requires us to respect the results of an election even when we do not like them or wish it had gone differently.”
This is not the first time the former first lady surprised Americans from all sides of politics. She recently demonized 71 million people who voted for President Trump on Nov. 3.
“Let us remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division,” she said on Twitter.
She suggested there was something seriously wrong with everyone who gave first preference to President Trump. She also encouraged Democratic Party supporters to try to discourage those voters from supporting the GOP again.
“We have got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us,” she said.
