Former First Lady Michelle Obama delivered a video message to her Twitter followers on Tuesday encouraging them to vote for former Vice President Joe Biden for President. While she presented Biden as the best candidate for the job, she took aim at President Donald Trump for creating division in the country and suggested he lied about riots in the country.

“They’re stoking fears about Black and Brown Americans, lying about how minorities will destroy the suburbs, whipping up violence and intimidation, and they’re pinning it all on what’s been an overwhelmingly peaceful movement for racial solidarity,” Michelle Obama said.

She added, “It’s true. Research backs it up. Only a tiny fraction of demonstrations have had any violence at all. So what the President is doing is once again patently false, it’s morally wrong, and, yes, it is racist.”

Michelle also took aim at Trump for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in her video and a series of subsequent tweets. “There’s only one way we can pull ourselves out– by voting for my friend @JoeBiden, who’s got the heart, the experience, and the character to lead us to better days,” she wrote on Twitter.

San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”

“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.

The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”

Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
