In latest speech, FLOTUS denounces Trump's treatment of women

Michelle Obama spoke Thursday in New Hampshire (an important swing state) supporting Hillary Clinton's candidacy for president and thoroughly denouncing Republican candidate Donald Trump. And yes we keep saying this, but this speech just might be the first lady's best yet. Obama isn't usually spotted on the campaign trail; she's the Democratic ticket's secret weapon, only employed in the case of an emergency. And New Hampshire has the potential to be an emergency.

During her speech, Obama explained how close the numbers were during the 2012 election. Many are suggesting this speech is one for the history books, and it is. This speech transcends politics and questions our collective morality.

"I can't believe that I'm saying that a candidate for president of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women. And I have to tell you that I can't stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn't have predicted."

She starts speaking at 25:10.

The first lady was visibly horrified by Trump's comments and alleged behavior. She implored the audience to simply imagine the consequences of a Trump presidency and the effect it would have on our children. Toward the end of her speech, she urged the New Hampshire audience and those of us watching to vote for Hillary Clinton.

People on Twitter are in a frenzy after hearing Obama's speech, and we're right there with them.
