PHILADELPHIA, PA — Michelle Obama garnered a standing ovation from the crowd at the Democratic National Convention as she made her way to the stage, but her star-studded entrance only served as a prelude to a speech that moved her and those watching to tears.
She centered her speech around the future of America's kids, and why presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton is the candidate to lead them to a brighter future.
The FLOTUS wasn't done though: She also set her bullseye on Donald Trump. Though she never mentioned the Republican nominee by name, she still told it is like it is about his "cynical" perspective, lack of leadership, and "thin skin."
Here are nine fire moments from her speech. You'll need a hose to put these out:
When she told the crowd her motto for slayin' haters:
Donald Trump is known for name-calling (see: crooked Hillary, crazy Bernie), using derogatory language, and having an overall shitty attitude. That's why Obama let those listening in on her little secret: "When they go low, we go high."
She said that she gives her kids this advice when they encounter bullies. They can definitely be applied to Trump, the ultimate bully.
When she low-key implied that Trump would fuck up our children.
"This November when we go to the polls that is what we’re deciding, not Democrat or Republican, not left or right," FLOTUS said. "No, in this election and every election is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives."
In other words, our children look up to our national leaders, and she made it clear that a candidate like Trump is not the person they should be watching. Eleven-year-olds shouldn't have to write letters explaining that they're not terrorists.
When she low-balled the businessman for his complete lack of political experience.
"What I admire most about Hillary is that she never buckles under pressure," Obama said. "She never takes the easy way out. And Hillary Clinton has never quit on anything in her life."
You know who has quit? Donald J. Trump. He isn't the bombastic business hero he wants everyone to think he is and he has bankruptcies and a slew of other failures to prove it. And when he does succeed, it's for himself.
This is why FLOTUS is riding with Clinton in November.
"I want a president with a record of public service, someone whose life’s work shows our children that we don’t chase form and fortune for ourselves, we fight to give everyone a chance to succeed."
When she implied Trump is a crybaby manchild.
ICYMI: Clinton lost the nomination to Michelle's husband, Barack Obama, in 2008. Yet, she didn't spend time questioning whether or not he's a legitimate POTUS. Instead, she joined his cabinet as secretary of state to increase her foreign affairs experience — and then ran for the nomination again.
The first lady is impressed.
"When she didn’t win the nomination eight years ago, she didn’t get angry or disillusioned," the flawless FLOTUS said. "Hillary did not pack up and go home, because as a true public servant Hillary knows that this is so much bigger than her own desires and disappointments. So she proudly stepped up to serve our country once again as secretary of state, traveling the globe to keep our kids safe."
When she basically called Trump's campaign a joke.
The first lady then went after Trump running for president in the first place, which apparently started when he boasted that he could do a better job than president Obama.
"[I want for president] someone who knows this job and takes this seriously," she said.
When she called out his embarrassing Twitter antics.
Donald Trump is known for tweeting like an online troll with an egg avi. He uses Twitter to sling insults, spread lies, and share racist propaganda. And he's willing to take down a tweet with bad spelling faster than one that shares the thoughts of a former KKK-member. Is that someone we want representing our country? Michelle thinks not.
"I want someone with the proven strength to persevere, someone who knows this job and takes it seriously, someone who understands that the issues a president faces are not black and white and cannot be boiled down to 140 characters," she said. BURN.
When she confirmed that Trump's temper would get us all blown to smithereens.
He's insulted public officials and world leaders without consequence, demeaned women and has even barred journalists for writing about him in a negative light, even when their zingers are truthful. We've already seen his hot-headedness almost stale our ties with our allies, and Obama knows having him as the commander-in-chief would only spell more disaster.
Barack Obama is the epitome of level-headed and cool, which is exactly the temperament the first lady said is needed do the job well.
"When you have the nuclear codes at your fingertips and the military in your command, you can't make snap decisions," she said. "You can't have a thin skin or a tendency to lash out. You need to be steady and measured and well-informed."
When she subtly told racists to have a fucking seat.
From the moment she took office, Obama hasn't been shy about calling out bigotry and speaking out against scapegoating ethnic groups. She's championed Black women, and reinforced the message that Black lives do matter.
She's also real about American history, which is primarily full of the enslavement of her ancestors. That's not lost on her. Breaking barriers is what she and Clinton are all about.
Obama said that Clinton breaking the glass ceiling to be the first nominee for a major party is "the story of this country."
It's the story that has brought me to this stage tonight, the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves.""And I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women playing with their dogs on the White House lawn. And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters and all our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States."
Last but not least, when she told Trump that America doesn't need to be made great again. We're doing just fucking fine, thank you.
"So, look, so don’t let anyone ever tell you that this country isn’t great, that somehow we need to make it great again," she said. "Because this right now is the greatest country on earth!"
