The first lady took a swipe at the Republican nominee after he complained about his microphone not working properly during the first presidential debate — although the Commission on Presidential Debates later confirmed that it was indeed defective.

“I’ve watched her, when she gets knocked down, she doesn’t complain, she doesn’t cry foul,” Obama said while tapping her microphone. “No, she gets right back up.” (RELATED: Everyone Is Talking About The White Dress Michelle Obama Wore To The State Dinner Last Night)

“We need someone who’s honest and plays by the rules, because not paying taxes for years and years while the rest of us pay our fair share does not make you smarter than the rest of us.”

“No, we need a president who will choose to do what’s best for the country even when it doesn’t personally benefit them.”
