LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - First Lady Michelle Obama took the stage at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night, and almost everyone in Hollywood had something to say about her powerful and inspiring words.
Bill Maher tweeted, "#MicheleObama - wow! After that speech, look out Hillary she may beat ya to the white house," and Cher added, "Cher: OMG! Just Watched Michelle Obama Speak & am Completely Overwhelmed!She Was Amazing! She is Truly a"FIRST LADY”! A Woman to Admire & Emulate!"
Reality star Kyle Richards wrote, "I’m thinking @BarackObama must be feeling pretty proud of his wife @MichelleObama right now," and rapper Eve added, "Eve: WOW!!!! Michelle Obama’s speech just gave me chills with her speech!!!! #beautiful #strength #leader #powerful #words."
Gordon Stewart, former deputy chief speechwriter to President Jimmy Carter, shared his thoughts on the CNN blog and wrote, "Her speech tied the Obamas' personal stories directly to the lives of millions of voters struggling not to be the first generation of Americans unable to offer hope of greater opportunities to their children than they had, thus drawing a contrast with Mitt Romney as an unnamed but unmistakable caricature of privilege without shading her talk with negativity or animosity."
