Michelle Obama: 'Vote for Joe Biden Like our Lives Depend on It'

Former first lady Michelle Obama, in an intimate video speech for the Democratic National Convention, made a personal plea Monday for voters to reject President Trump.

In her remarks drawing on her ability to connect personally with an audience, Obama urged Americans to back Joe Biden in the presidential election, drawing on the coronavirus crisis, economic hardship and call to action against racism in the United States.

"You know I hate politics," Michelle Obama said. "But you also know that I care about this nation. You know how much I care about all of our children. So if you take one thing from my words tonight, it is this: if you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can; and they will if we don't make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it."
