On the first day of the 2020 Democratic National Convention, former first lady Michelle Obama spoke at length about the deaths and economic devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, decried "our leaders labeling fellow citizens enemies of the state while emboldening torch-bearing white supremacists,” and claimed that President Donald Trump “is clearly in over his head.”
