Former first lady Michelle Obama this week took aim at the “nastiness” that has permeated the political discourse in the country:
"I am sick of all the chaos and the nastiness of our politics. It's exhausting, and frankly, it's depressing." Former first lady Michelle Obama delivered a message to potential voters in the midterms, telling them "democracy continues with or without you." https://t.co/hFOE9ZBnAd pic.twitter.com/7VgRleb6AM

She’s absolutely right, but to a great degree not in the way she wants that to be taken.
Remember “argue with your neighbors” and “get in their face”?
Apparently Michelle Obama hasn’t met her husband.
Remember Hillary calling millions of Americans “deplorables”?
Or when Hillary called Republicans her #1 enemy:
Remember mobs of angry lefties chasing people like Sarah Sanders, Pam Bondi and Ted Cruz out of restaurants? Remember the angry rhetoric that led a deranged lunatic to try and assassinate a bunch of Republicans at a baseball practice?
And just for kicks, let’s not forget Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono saying Brett Kavanaugh is basically guilty of attempted rape based only on the fact that he’s a right-leaning judge and not a lockstep lib:
CNN’s Jake Tapper: “Doesn’t Kavanaugh have the same presumption of innocence as anyone else in America?”

The Dem with the most appropriate first name in the Senate, Dick Blumenthal, agreed with Hirono, by the way.
The list could go on forever, but basically what I’m trying to say is Michelle Obama is totally correct about the nastiness in politics, just not in the way she thinks she is.
