Michelle Obama received a raucous welcome at the Democratic National Convention.
Following remarks about the difficulties of parenting two children while living at the White House, she took a clear shot at Donald Trump:

Donald Trump, before running for president, made several comments about the “birther” controversy, which claims Barack Obama was actually born in Kenya. The reasoning goes that if Barack Obama were born in Kenya, he would not be a “natural born” citizen, and therefore, would not be eligible for President.
In 2012, Donald Trump even offered President Obama five million dollars to release his passport and college records. The White House responded to birther critics by releasing Barack Obama’s “long form birth certificate.”
Barack Obama has faced his fair share of accusations that he is actually a Muslim. In 2011, Donald Trump said the following:
“He doesn’t have a birth certificate. He may have one, but there’s something on that, maybe religion, maybe it says he is a Muslim,” Trump told Fox News in 2011. “I don’t know. Maybe he doesn’t want that.”
It’s clear that the controversy aggravated Michelle Obama so much she felt compelled to address it during the DNC speech.
