Former first lady Michelle Obama gave the final speech of the night on the first day of the Democratic National Convention, and she may have referenced Kanye West.

Obama’s speech Monday night focused on President Donald Trump and the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. She talked about former Vice President Joe Biden as a man of faith, humility and resiliency, too.

During the middle of the speech, she may have referenced Kanye West.

This is not the time to withhold our votes in protest or play games with candidates who have no chance of winning. We have got to vote like we did in 2008 and 2012. We’ve got to show up with the same level of passion and hope for Joe Biden. — Michelle Obama

Social media began to wonder if this was a reference to West,who has filed a bid to run for president. He is registered in some states, including Utah, to be on the ballot.
