He who shall not be named

Michelle Obama spoke at a rally for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire Thursday, saying Donald Trump's lewd comments and actions toward women are "intolerable" and "disgraceful."

"This was not just a lewd conversation. This wasn't locker room banter," she said. She added that the election will come down to character.

"It's not about politics. It's about basic human decency." She spoke on how Clinton is a good wife, mother and daughter. She didn't say Trump's name once.

We as women have all the power we need to determine the outcome of this election.
