Michelle clip edited to be deceptive
Michelle Obama says "for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”."
Meaning, she used to be proud, but now she's really proud.
But the clip that is going around has "really" clipped out of it. Listen, and you can hear the edit:
Note that the text has "really" in it, but the sound has "really" cut out.
Oh my! Why would anyone change to audio?
Is this the sort of slime we can expect from Obama's attackers?
Let's read the whole quote:
"What we have learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback. It is making a comeback. And let me tell you something -- for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I've seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic common issues, and it's made me proud."
