Michelle Obama landed in hot water this week when she spoke at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women on Tuesday, in which she gave a speech calling Republicans “all men, all white.”
Don’t you love when so-called feminists literally erase the contributions and voices of women and people of color when it doesn’t fit their narrative?
Obama said during her speech, describing the two sides of the aisle during a visit to Congress:
“What you can see is this real dichotomy—on one side of the room, it’s a feeling of color. On one side of the room, it’s literally gray and white. Literally, that’s the color palette on one side of the room.”
“On the other side of the room, there are yellows and blues and whites and greens. Physically, there’s a difference in color, in the tone. … Because one side—all men, all white. On the other side – some women, some people of color.”
She then said that because of the “all white, all men” on the Republican said “people don’t trust politics.”
Ronna McDaniel, the chairWOMAN of the Republican National Committee (yes, women can be Republicans too!), took issue with this blanket statement, saying in an interview with Fox News on Thursday:
“It’s unfortunate Michelle Obama would disregard the contributions of conservative women and people of all backgrounds with one sweeping, false accusation.”
There are many women and people of color in the Republican party- remember the 2016 election, when the GOP had a black candidate, two Hispanic candidates, an Indian-American candidate, and a woman candidate, versus only white people on the Democrats side? There is diversity in the GOP, and when Michelle Obama said that there is only white men, she totally disregarded those people.
Glad the RNC has an awesome chairwoman in Ronna McDaniel to tell it like it is.
