Michelle Obama was in Boston on Wednesday to speak at an Inbound sales and marketing conference. She used the opportunity to talk politics and throw some jabs instead of discussing sales and marketing. (video below)
According to excerpts of her speech released by Boston.com, Obama took a moment during the speech to slam every woman who voted for Trump. Here is her exact words:
“Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice. It doesn’t say much about Hillary, and everybody’s trying to worry about what it means for Hillary and no, no, no what does this mean for us as women? That we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, ‘He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ To me that just says, you don’t like your voice. You just like the thing you’re told to like.”
Here’s a video that released on Twitter:

Michelle Obama just did something very similar to what Hillary Clinton did in 2016 when she attacked half of Americans by calling Trump Supporters a “Basket of Deplorables.” The only difference this time, however, is that Obama specifically attacked women who voted for President Trump. According to FOX News, exit polls suggested 41% of people who voted for Trump were women. So that’s approximately 25 million American females Obama just attacked, considering Trump received over 63 million votes. It doesn’t get any more divisive than that!
