Michelle Obama attacked President Donald Trump in a blistering speech during the virtual Democratic National Convention on Monday night.
Some of the scheduled speakers phoned in their speeches due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Mrs. Obama closed out the first night of the virtual DNC with an impassioned 18-minute speech.
Speaking via livestream from her $11 million Hamptons mansion -- one of five mansions the Obamas own -- the former first lady called Trump "the wrong president for our country."
"Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head," she said.
She added: "He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is."
Mrs. Obama praised Democratic nominee Joe Biden, calling him a "profoundly decent man."
She showed signs of emotional stress during her speech. She previously said she was struggling with "some form of low-grade depression" due to the Trump administration's "hypocrisy".
During her podcast earlier this month, Obama said the hypocrisy of the Trump administration keeps her up at night.
Among her symptoms are insomnia, mood disturbances, anxiety, stress, and lack of motivation in her normal daily routines.
"I'm waking up in the middle of the night, cause I'm worrying about something, or there's a heaviness," she said.
Obama added, "You know, um, so I, I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting."
President Trump mocked her pre-recorded speech during a campaign stop ahead of the Democratic convention.
Trump told supporters in Minnesota. "Why don't they tell me that? I'll tape my speech next week. It's a lot easier."
