Campaigning for Democrats in Ohio, as US President Barack Obama stripped Republicans of any credit not standing by Donald Trump in wake of the recently surfaced videos and recording, he said that anyone who needs convincing that Hillary Clinton should be the next US president should listen to the First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech in New Hampshire from earlier Thursday.

“If you want to hear the best case for Hillary Clinton, you want hear the very real stakes in this election, I would advise you to link up to Michelle’s speech from New Hampshire,” the President said. Praising the first lady further, a giddy Barack Obama said jokingly, “She was pretty good. That’s why you get married, to improve your gene pool.”

Michelle Obama in New Hampshire had said she has been “shaken” to the core by comments that Trump made in which he is heard on a 2005 tape bragging about assaulting women because he is famous, dismissing the suggestion that they were simply “locker room talk,” saying they were affront to all women, parents and every citizen in United States.

“I simply will not repeat anything here today. Last week, we actually saw this candidate bragging about sexually assaulting women. I can’t believe I’m saying that, a candidate for president of the United States bragged about sexually assaulting women,” Michelle said during her speech.
