Michelle Obama cared SO MUCH about her speech at the Democratic National Convention that she recorded it at least a week before the actual convention and didn’t bother to re-record it after Joe Biden picked his VP, Kamala Harris.
And of course, the media were front and center ‘circling the wagons’ and giving Michelle a pass … or at least trying to. GAWD forbid people start thinking Michelle snubbed Kamala! Especially after her own husband said she was one the best-looking attorney general in the country.
Jake Tapper was happy to report it soon after the convention had ended:
If you’re wondering why there was no reference in @MichelleObama speech to @KamalaHarris, her speech was taped before Harris was selected to be Biden’s running mate, multiple aides to the Obamas tell CNN.

But you’d think something like a VP nod would be worth going back to record again or at least add another piece, right?
Per Sharyl Attkisson …
That's odd. https://t.co/6TdiVfvpjc

Sharyl is right, you know.
That’s more than odd.
But hey, what do we know? We just work here.
Maybe her wi-fi was out?

Michelle's got a lot on her plate…
You know how it is…

Virtual convention is bad enough. Recorded weeks earlier is worse. So glad they’re putting their best in to this??

Right? Nothing says you’re all in with Biden like pre-recording your speech from your mansion in Martha’s Vineyard.
I find it odd that Michelle couldn't be bothered to re-tape it.
I mean isn't this election the most important thing since the war of independence?

Put another way, she phoned it in.#justsaying

She did indeed.
