‘All She Wants To Do Is Campaign’: Trump Goes After Michelle Obama At Rally
During his first rally today in North Carolina, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump decided to broaden his attacks, criticizing both President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, along with his normal target Hillary Clinton.
In this instance, he stated that both Obamas were spending too much time campaigning for Hillary rather than paying attention to more pressing things. Regarding POTUS, Trump essentially blamed his campaigning schedule for the Philippines separating from the United States.
As for FLOTUS, Trump tried to pit Michelle against Hillary, bringing up an old statement from 2007 that was supposedly critical of the Clintons.

‘All she wants to do is campaign,” Trump said about Mrs. Obama. “And I see how much [Michelle Obama] likes Hillary. But wasn’t she the one that originally started the statement ‘if you can’t take care of your home.’ Right? You can’t take care of the White House, the country. Where’s that?”
The First Lady has been heavily critical of Trump’s rhetoric and treatment of women on the campaign trail. Yesterday, she ripped the real estate mogul for “humiliating women as if we’re objects.”
