Washington, Oct 14: As Barack Obama's tenure at the White House is all set to end soon, the "Obama factor" is still very much omnipresent in the politics of the United States.
However, it is not the POTUS, but his wife, Michelle Obama, who is winning the voters' hearts with her honest and fervent appeal to vote and vote for the right candidate (read Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton), as the country is all set to decide who will be its next President on November 8.
Michelle Obama's defining moments
According to the Los Angeles Times, the first lady starred in a defining moment of the presidential race when on Thursday she delivered a stinging and emotional condemnation of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's behaviour towards women.
Michelle spoke about what it means to be a woman, a mother and a professional and strongly condemned Trump and his sexist remarks against women.

Not everyone is impressed
It is not that her passionate speech got approval from all the voters, especially the die-hard supporters of Trump were critical of Michelle. Here are a few tweets lambasting the first lady:
Shut up Michelle Obama. Your endless vacations with your freeloading mom & kids "shake me to my core". Don't get me started on Jihadi Obama!— Amy Mek (@AmyMek) October 13, 2016
