Earlier this week, Michelle Obama gave a speech, and she took it as an opportunity to bash women who voted for President Trump in the 2016 election. The Former First Lady of The United States couldn’t understand how a woman could make an educated decision to vote for Donald Trump instead of simply voting for the female candidate, Hillary Clinton.
Judge Jeanine Pirro, the former District Attorney of the state of New York and now host of Fox News Channel's television program “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” wasn’t about to let Michelle get away with her statements. On “Fox & Friends,” she called out Mrs. Obama for her condescending tone.
On Wednesday, September 27th, Obama spoke at the Inbound 2017 conference. During her speech, she spoke out against women who voted for President Trump, saying they had to be going against their own “voice” because a man told them to vote for Trump.
Earlier in the month, Hillary Clinton made similar statements during her book tour. She unashamedly said women on both sides of the political aisle only voted for someone other than her because conservative men or Bernie bros pressured them.
"Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice," said Obama
But she didn’t stop there. She took more time to talk down to conservative women.
“What does it mean for us as women that we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, that guy, he's better for me, his voice is more true to me," said Obama. "Well, to me that just says you don't like your voice. You like the thing you're told to like."
On Friday morning, Judge Jeanine, as a conservative woman, quite clearly took issue with what Mrs. Obama was saying. She pointed out how very sexist Obama’s comment was.
"To suggest that women are so simple that they vote based on their reproductive organs only—or Madeline Albright saying that there's a 'special place in hell' for women who don't vote for other women—is just so simplistic it throws us back to the Dark Ages," Judge Jeanine said.
Just like Tomi Lahren did yesterday, Judge Jeanine offered other reasons why women would vote for President Trump. None of them had anything to do with being a man or a woman.
She cited President Trump’s strength on the economy and terrorism. She also cited Clinton’s shortcomings; many women, she said, thought Clinton was "arrogant" and a "crook.”
Judge Jeanine also made an excellent point about the irony of Obama’s statement. In 2008, former President Barack Obama ran against Clinton.
"So I guess then Michelle Obama didn't know her own voice when she voted for her husband against a woman?" asked Judge Jeanine.
