Conservative Outrage Over Michelle Obama's Commencement Speech!

Michelle Obama gave students a hard reality and conservatives go bananas.

As President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama deliver their final commencement address to inspiring minds, conservatives once again get livid over the harsh truths of America.

Our friends over at Addicting Info got the screenshot of a comment section from a linked article.

The Drudge Report posted the link to The Politico yesterday this story.

Michelle Obama Trashes Trump At Commencement Speech...

Yeah, Mrs. Obama did throw shade at the Republican billionaire for his divisive comments about her husband. She offered a scathing, barely veiled critique of Donald Trump on Friday as she delivered her final commencement address as first lady, warning graduates of City College in New York that while their diverse backgrounds are to be celebrated, they should beware of those who "build up walls to keep people out."

"They seem to view our diversity as a threat to be contained rather than as a resource to be tapped," Obama said. "They tell us to be afraid of those who are different, to be suspicious of those with whom we disagree. They act as if name-calling is an acceptable substitute for thoughtful debate. As if anger and intolerance should be our default state rather than optimism and openness that have always been the engine of our progress."

"No, uh-uh," she continued, to applause. "Our greatness has always come from people who expect nothing and take nothing for granted, folks who work hard for what they have and then reach back and help others after them. That is your story, graduates, and that is the story of your families. And it’s the story of my family, too.”

The story of the U.S., the first lady continued, is one of "the son of Polish immigrants named Jonas Salk who toiled for years in a lab until he discovered a vaccine that saved countless lives. It’s the story of the son of Jamaican immigrants named Colin Powell who became a four-star general, secretary of state, and a role model for young people across the country."

"And graduates, it’s the story that I witness every single day when I wake up in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters, two beautiful black young women head off to school waving goodbye to their father, the president of the United States, the son of a man from Kenya who came here to America for the same reasons as many of you: to get an education and improve his prospects in life," she remarked.

While the United States' founders "never could have imagined this day," Obama said, "all of you are very much the fruits of their vision."

Here's what Addicting Info captured. Note, if this stuff was sent to RacistGetFired, they could find out where they work and maybe get them fired.

These people are Donald Trump's supporters. Sad pathetic morons. Racist ignorant trolls.

The Obamas' paid homage to the greatest. The White House issued a statement reflecting on their time with boxing great Muhammad Ali.
