Michelle Obama speaking at JSU (April 2016)A Trump supporter is calling former first lady Michelle Obama to task for a recent video in which she failed to acknowledge the real source of violence in America's Democrat-run cities.

The former first lady's 24-minute "closing argument" video for Joe Biden attacks President Trump.

"Think about what would possibly compel you to accept this level of chaos, violence, and confusion under this president," she said. "Search your hearts and your conscience, and then vote for Joe Biden like your lives depend on it."

But during a recent appearance on the Fox News Channel, Stacy Washington, co-chair of Black Voices for Trump and a board member of Veterans for Trump, said Mrs. Obama contradicted herself.

"Now, when black America's in the throes of really a crisis -- black communities destroyed, burned out, bombed out, really like hell-holes on earth -- then you see her come out and ignore all of that destruction and tell black Americans to vote for the party that is the purveyor of that violence," Washington argued.

She also called Obama to task for lambasting the president's concerns about the left's plan to destroy the suburbs.

"President Trump was speaking of an Obama-era rule that would take away local control from suburban homes," the conservative noted. "Like myself -- I'm black. I live in the suburbs. [It would] make it possible for them to put high-density, low-income housing right next to me on the lot next door, where presently my subdivision has a three-acre minimum. So this is about local control. It's not about black people."

Washington says Michelle Obama is a distraction being trotted out to distract black Americans from the fact that Joe Biden has no constructive plans for black America.
