… FLOTUS disgraces herself [#commencement speech]…

.. the First Lady usually delivers a couple of commencement speeches a year . Sometimes they make news , sometimes not . But ….

.. not like this …

.. Michelle Obama made a recent commencement speech to the City College of New York [C.C.N.Y.] . You would think that she would not make news . Well , guess what ? You would be WRONG …

.. [h/t —]..

.. take a quote from her own speech so that you understand what she said …

The bulk of her speech centered around condemning politics that she perceives as anti-diversity. The kind of politics that might “build up walls to keep people out” or “view our diversity as a threat to be contained rather than as a resource to be tapped.” She spoke to the graduates about how America was built on the backs of immigrants and that she has lived that story every day for the last eight years living at the White House:

“And graduates, it’s the story that I witness every single day when I wake up in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters, two beautiful black young women head off to school waving goodbye to their father, the president of the United States, the son of a man from Kenya who came here to America for the same reasons as many of you: to get an education and improve his prospects in life.”

Then the first lady reminded everyone just how racist the Founding Fathers were:

“So, graduates, while I think it’s fair to say that our Founding Fathers never could’ve imagined this day [laughs], all of you are very much the fruits of their vision. Their legacy is very much your legacy and your inheritance. And don’t let anybody tell you differently.”
