Glenn Beck praised Michelle Obama for her speech slamming Trump


Conservative talk show host, Glenn Beck,  recently praised Michelle Obama for her remarks denouncing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.  

The first lady's response to Trump's comments about women has actually garnered praise across the political aisle. 

Michelle Obama delivered the powerful speech during a rally for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. 

In the speech, she went after Trump for a 2005 interview in which he can be heard making lewd comments about groping women.

"This is disgraceful," the first lady said. "It is intolerable. And it doesn't matter what party you belong to -- Democrat, Republican, independent -- no woman deserves to be treated this way. None of us deserves this kind of abuse."

Glenn Beck called Michelle Obama's remarks, "the most effective political speech I have heard since Ronald Reagan." 

Paul Begala, who was a former aide to President Bill Clinton, told CNN's "State of the Union" that Michelle Obama's speech will likely be one for the history books. 

"Michelle Obama's speech will be one of the things people study 100 years from now," Begala said on CNN. "It was that powerful."

Former White House staffer, Desiree Rogers, told CNN, "This is the real Michelle Obama."
