Lady Who Lives Behind Big “Wall” Complains People Shouldn’t Build Walls

Have you ever visited the White House? It’s surrounded by a tall fence, separating Los Presidente from the citizenry. If you attempt to go over it, so you can wander the grounds, view the beautiful flowers, and walk barefoot in the well maintained grass, perhaps head inside for a sandwich, well, you’ll be arrested and charged with multiple offenses.

(WTVD) In her final commencement speech as first lady, Michelle Obama struck an uncharacteristically political tone as she told City College of New York graduates to be wary of politicians who have used their platform to spread fear to their followers.

“They seem to view our diversity as a threat to be contained rather than as a resource to be tapped,” Obama said. “They tell us to be afraid of those who are different, to be suspicious of those with whom we disagree.”

The first lady’s remarks even included a rousing and direct rebuke to GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump‘s proposal to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, with Obama asserting, “that is not what this country stands for.”

Here in America we don’t give in to our fears, we don’t build up walls to keep people out because we know that our greatness has always depended on contributions from people who were born elsewhere but sought out this country and made it their home,” Obama said.

Would she be OK with people illegally jumping the White House fence and making it their home? “Mooching” on the food and benefits of living at the White House?

Perhaps she could reach out to the family of Kate Steinle, murdered by a 6 time deported illegal alien who was convicted of 7 felonies. Or all the other U.S. citizens who have seen their lives damaged or taken away due to illegal aliens. Or all those who have seen wages decline thanks to illegal aliens.

Perhaps she should have a talk with her husband, who seems suspicious, even denigrating, towards those who disagree with him

Obama also channeled her travels as first lady to warn students of what happens to governments that succumb to dictators.

“I have seen how leaders who rule by intimidation, leaders who demonize and dehumanize entire groups of people often do so because they have nothing else to offer,” Obama said. “Graduates, that is not who we are.”

Again, perhaps she should have a talk with her husband

The nation’s largest veterans group hit back at President Obama on Thursday and urged him not to “denigrate” their intelligence after the president suggested their members were easily swayed by cable news and “right-wing radio.”

The Veterans of Foreign Wars called out the president after Obama referenced the political opinions at “VFW halls” in an Indiana speech Wednesday that toggled between campaign politics and the economy.

“I don’t know how many VFW Posts the president has ever visited, but our near 1.7 million members are a direct reflection of America,” VFW National Commander John A. Biedrzycki Jr. said in a statement. “We don’t have confused politics, we don’t need left or rightwing media filters telling us how to think or vote, and we don’t need any President of the United States lecturing us about how we are individually [affected] by the economy.”

That was in response to

“We have been hearing this story for decades,” Obama said. “Tales about welfare queens, talking about takers, talking about the ‘47percent.’ It’s the story that is broadcast every day on some cable news stations, on right-wing radio, it’s pumped into cars, and bars, and VFW halls all across America, and right here in Elkhart.”

Mr. Obama sure seems suspicious of those who disagree with him. Demonizing and denigrating entire groups. And then he goes to live behind his big fenced off house. One which the Secret Service intends to make taller, which neither Obama has complained about.
