The Hill reports:
The tweet comes two days after Michelle Obama gave her own speech at the convention, which received widespread praise.
Vice President Biden said earlier Wednesday that she had the best speech of the event.
“Michelle, you are incredible,” the vice president said. “I was talking to Barack today — it is no longer he will give the best speech; we know who did that. You were incredible Monday.”
President Obama electrified the crowd of Democrats as he urged supporters to back Hillary Clinton, the party’s presidential nominee, and thanked voters for his two terms in office.
He also gave his wife a shoutout, saying American voters “fell” for the first lady.
“You fell for my brilliant wife and partner, Michelle, who’s made me a better father and a better man; who’s gone on to inspire our nation as first lady; and who somehow hasn’t aged a day,” he told a packed Wells Fargo Center.
