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.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
