The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, came to Pittsburgh as a part of the Hillary Clinton campaign, as we quickly approach this November’s election.
“This is off script, but I love Pittsburgh! I wish I could hang out with you guys and eat some pancakes,” Obama said.
On Sept. 28, the first lady visited the University of Pittsburgh’s campus; delivering her speech in the Fitzgerald Field House building.
Hundreds gathered in Oakland, waiting patiently in lines that wrapped around the Fitzgerald Field House, eagerly waiting to see and hear Obama. So many in fact, that everyone didn’t get a chance to get inside.
“History was made today and I’m proud to be a part of this experience. I was unable to get inside the venue to see Michelle Obama, but I got very close and was able to listen to her speech live outside of the building. The outpouring of love and support for Mrs. Obama was amazing,” Geneva Webb said.
