Trump obliquely mocked Michelle Obama’s looks in speech

The Donald Trump Show was rekindled privately Saturday night at a Republican National Committee event at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., with the former president delivering a speech heavy on his election grievances and with relatively little to say about the future of the GOP. As The Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey reported Sunday, Trump’s speech reserved the heaviest and newest criticisms for the man who is currently the most powerful Republican in Washington, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.). Trump hit McConnell for not helping overturn the 2020 election and called him a ‘dumb son of a bitch,’ while accusing him of being ungrateful for Trump’s appointment of McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, to his Cabinet. Audio of the speech reviewed by The Post reveals that Trump at times went even further in going after his foes and revising electoral history, even lodging a suggestive attack involving former first lady Michelle Obama’s appearance” reports the Washington Post.

“McConnell wasn’t the only one Trump called an ingrate. That was also the verdict for another Republican who declined to toe Trump’s line on the legitimacy of the 2020 election and whom Trump has gone after before: Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp. But in prosecuting that grievance, Trump made a somewhat uncharacteristic comment about Michelle Obama – of whom he has often steered clear – while also using her husband’s middle name in a suggestive way. ‘Oprah Winfrey camped out in Atlanta’ in support of Kemp’s 2018 opponent Stacey Abrams, Trump claimed, wrongly saying that Winfrey was there for ‘months.’ Trump added: ‘Barack Hussein Obama and the very beautiful Michelle Obama were there for … ‘ At this point, the audience laughed uproariously. Michelle Obama’s appearance has often served as a punchline in some portions of the conservative Internet. ‘ …they were there for – forever,’ Trump concluded. Trump has a history of disparaging the appearances of women he doesn’t like. It was also an odd attack for another reason: Michelle Obama didn’t actually campaign for Abrams.”
