She didn't get that this extreme election was not the usual BS. She helped Trump win by everywhere saying Clinton did not deserve our vote. Now she got it. …. talking to myself here….best thing I can do now is keep focused on positive and constructive projects.

I noticed that a lot of famous, etc., Black people where going around saying no one should vote for Clinton, or like Dave Chappell, when asked if he was going to vote, saying sh!t like, "What the hell for?" I didn't like her "super predator" reference either [though what was disseminated did not show all of it, where she was literally repeating what she had been told by someone else], but even if she said it outright and/or it was a term, phrase that she made up herself or she was expressing...

It's going to take a lot of this by Michelle, President Obama and ALL Democrats all across this country to ensure re-election of President Obama and to empress upon people that if they don't vote in Congressional, Governor's, State and Local elections, republicans are going to continue to be in positions to Block every Idea or Policy of the President and his administration and the true desires of democrat voters.

The first lady has sooooooo much class. This is the RIGHT thing to do. The difference in this presidency compared to others in the past? It's a human element. One with the people. They are not in a snob box and make the people think they are ABOVE them[not among them] like so many presidents before...well maybe except for Lincoln, Kennedy, Johnson and Clinton.

The only problem I with this is that .... longer sentences usually only make for simply more hardened criminals by the time they come out. Perhaps if they were concentrating more on the social/mental rehabilitation of those that feel the need for gangs and gun violence in their lives .... then once they are released, they won't pick up another gun and shoot another innocent person and go BACK to jail again and get out and shoot another innocent person again and again and again.

It's really as simple that closing up the loopholes in the existing guns laws that allow hundreds of thousands of guns to wind up in the hands of immature youth, criminals, and people that have no intentions of using these [unmarked] guns only for self-defense.

It is nothing but stereotyping because I doubt that the person writing the article and most all other Americans even know whether or not Michelle Obama is "angry" or not. She has never displayed any "anger" in public, no one can pin point any particular situation where she was "angry" about anything. Yes, "The Angry Black Woman" is a stereotype and the only reason that it is even being mentioned in the same sentence with the name Michelle Obama, is because she happens to be a Black woman.
