DISGUSTING! Michelle Obama Takes Cheap Shot At Trump in Commencement Speech (VIDEO)
In a commencement speech at CUNY, the City University of New York, First Lady Michelle Obama took a not-so-thinly veiled shot at Donald Trump over the idea of a border wall.
Michelle Obama lives in a house surrounded by a tall fence guarded by men with guns but apparently average Americans don’t need any such protection.

Michelle Obama slips dig at Donald Trump into her final commencement address
The first lady, delivering her final commencement address, seemed to warn graduates away from the rhetoric of Donald Trump, though she didn’t identify him by name.
In an apparent reference to the presumed Republican nominee, Obama said, “Some folks out there today seem to have a very different perspective. They seemed to view our diversity as a threat to be contained rather than as a resource to be tapped” The First Lady added, “They act as if name calling is an acceptable substitute for thoughtful debate.”
“We don’t build up walls to keep people out,” the First lady declared to the 2016 class of the City College of New York, adding, “We know that our greatness has always depended on contributions from people who were born elsewhere but sought out this country and made it their home.”
Can you imagine Laura Bush doing this to Obama when he was first running in 2008?
Of course not, because it never happened and it never would have happened.

You’ll notice that the students cheered when she made the comments. That comes as no surprise considering the school she’s speaking at. In 2013, students from CUNY chased General David Petraeus down a New York street, calling him a war criminal.
