On Monday night, the Democratic convention kicked off online as we are in the middle of a uncontrolled pandemic. Former First Lady Michelle Obama made waves with the inspiring speech in which she laid out the case against Donald Trump. Many news outlets carried headlines highlighting Obama’s directed criticisms of Trump and his incoherent administration.

Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump fired back at Michelle Obama on Tuesday (and he used about a dozen women as human sexism shields). But Trump’s general attacks on the convention’s opening night itself, his general statements on how unpopular the convention was, etc., were overshadowed by his very strange criticism of the former first lady’s speech.

Cribbing from Michelle Obama’s speech when she said Trump was “in over his head,” Trump responded in his classic grade school fashion: “She was over her head.” Not exactly the right wording, but then again, Trump has a pedestrian mind in every respect. But there was more to critique: For example, Michelle Obama’s speech was pretaped. Trump figured this was a problem for some reason. “She should’ve made the speech live, which she didn’t do, she taped it. And it was not only taped, it was taped a long time ago, because she had the wrong [coronavirus] deaths.”

She. Had. The. Wrong. Deaths.

The section of Obama’s speech that Donald Trump was taking umbrage against was this:

“Four years later, the state of this nation is very different. More than 150,000 people have died, and our economy is in shambles because of a virus that this president downplayed for too long. It has left millions of people jobless.”

As of Tuesday, there are officially more than 170,000 Americans who have died since the beginning of the year from contracting COVID-19. That number is most likely underreported. So Donald Trump, who said at the end of February that the “flu, in our country, kills from 25,000 people to 69,000 people a year,” and predicted the number of cases—let alone deaths—would soon be zero, and then by the end of March attempted to boast that the worst-case scenario would be 100,000 deaths, wants to highlight that Obama’s “more than 150,000” number should have been “more than 170,000” dead.

Got it.

  1. Well cut him some slack. MichelleObama shorted him 20,000 deaths. I know that’s crass and bad form. But you have to take this from the morons point of view. He’s going to try to pin this on someone and he wants the numbers to jive. Trump is a very sick person and he should be taken out on 25th amendment. Democrats don’t try hard enough and the republicans are scared of him.

  2. How does he know he said the virus would be over three months ago. He ha come up with figures that are wrong every week si ce Feb. When he lies he is stil.off by thousands . He is running scared.Soon he will quit, if not go down in the worst defeat in history.RIP.

  3. Michelle Obama was a stellar first lady. She championed healthy eating habits for children. Contrast that with the Slovenian hooker that’s busy remodeling the tennis courts telling everybody to “Be Best”. Can’t believe he’s criticizing Michelle Obama for not having the correct death count since he’s done everything he can to put his toadies in charge of the skewed statistics. Instead of a sensible national program to combat this virus he’s meeting up with his con artist buddies to tout another dangerous useless product people are profiting off of. That’s the way our medical system works you know, it’s profit driven with money as the goal NOT healthy people.
