(Jul. 25, 2016) — Cheryl Lankford, a widow whose husband died overseas while serving in the U.S. military, address the DNC at 10:00 p.m. EDT, claiming that she used the honorarium she received from the federal government after her husband’s death to enroll in a “Trump University” class which she said cheated and deceived her.

“I’m here because America deserves to know the truth,” Lankford said, after saying that Trump “helps himself, no matter who it hurts.”

She implored the audience not to “make the same mistake” she allegedly did by enrolling in the class but did not elaborate on how she was allegedly cheated.  She stressed that she was, most of all, “embarrassed” by her choice to take the course, which reportedly cost her $35,000.

Lankford did not say if she is one of several plaintiffs suing Trump in a lawsuit to be heard following the November 8 election.

Following Lankford, Michelle Obama was introduced in a promotional video, then made her entrance to the podium.

At 10:08 p.m., Obama referenced that some Americans have questioned her husband’s “citizenship” without mentioning the findings that the long-form birth certificate posted on the White House website was declared a forgery by a criminal investigative team in March 2012.

Michelle Obama praised Hillary Clinton as a leader with a “track record” of public service and interest in America’s children.

Contradicting Trump’s campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again,” Obama said that America is “already great.”

Obama’s address ended at 10:21 p.m.
