Former first lady Michelle Obama released a video cutting President Donald Trump down to size and supporting former Vice President Joe Biden's bid to beat Trump in November. She not only checked Trump on his handling of the coronavirus but also for the president's efforts trying to start a race war and pit Black Americans against White Americans.


"But right now, the President and his allies are trying to tap into that frustration and distract from his breathtaking failures by giving folks someone to blame other than them," Obama said. "They're stoking fears about Black and Brown Americans, lying about how minorities will destroy the suburbs, whipping up violence and intimidation -- and they're pinning it all on what's been an overwhelmingly peaceful movement for racial solidarity."

"I want everyone who is still undecided to think about all those folks like me and my ancestors," she continued, "the millions of folks who look like me and fought and died and toiled as slaves and soldiers and laborers to help build this country."

"Racism, fear, division, these are powerful weapons," Obama warned, "And they can destroy this nation if we don't deal with them head on."

Republicans and Trump supporters responded to the video with racism and sexism. They called her "Big Mike," alleging that she is not really a woman, a conspiracy theory perpetuated by disgraced conservative host Alex Jones.

Many couldn't help but notice the irony that after attacking racists, they responded with further racism.

It was something that people lashed out about in addition to sending their support to Mrs. Obama. You can see in the tweets below:
