Viewers of the Oprah Winfrey farewell special listened to Michelle Obama repeat the phrase Words Matter a double digit number of times. The articulate and intelligent First Lady was talking about video of Trump saying he could grab any woman by the pussy If he so chose as though it was a privilege of billionaires.
But, then there followed a significant exaggeration that failed to dupe American voters. Michelle equated sexual assault with a powerful man talking about groping women. All the maudlin facial expressions, about no longer having hope after the decisive electoral college defeat your party’s weak candidate suffered, elicited no sympathy from the right after 8 ineffective years.
The voters did not fall for any of the celebrity endorsements nor did it matter that outgoing first family campaigned vigorously for squeaking Clinton machine that now needs an overhaul it will never find.
