By MICHAEL D. RICHARDSEN and BRANDON R. BERNSTEINPosted March 13, 2018 09:01:00By MICHAEL DI RICHARDSON”I think we’ve got to be able to make the case that there is a need to have a conversation about what is really going on,” said the former first lady on a call with students in her hometown of Chicago.
“There’s no question that the economy is really struggling.
We know that.
So why are we not having a conversation?
Why is it that we’re not discussing it?”
The former first family is currently traveling in the first half of 2018 to promote the launch of its latest political action committee (PAC) and its presidential campaign, the Hillary for America PAC.
They are also making a push for more Democrats to run in 2020, including former Vice President Joe Biden, former Gov.
Mike Pence, former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and former Maryland Gov.
Larry Hogan, among others.
During the call, the former First Lady also took on the current state of politics and how it can be improved.
She said the “political world is more polarized than ever, and I think we can make a real difference.”
“I don`t believe we need to be scared,” said Michelle Obama.
“We have to embrace this fact, and we have the tools to do it.
But we need the courage to do so, because if we don’t, it`s going to cost us and it`ll be harder and harder to overcome.
