UNDENIABLY, MICHELLE OBAMA was the star of the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia last night.

In a powerful 15-minute speech, she talked about her family’s eight years in the White House, while taking swipes at Republican nominee Donald Trump:

YES MICHELLE. Twitter was alight with praise for FLOTUS – the main takeaway? She’s a boss.

1. People wondered if Michelle was Beyoncé’s version of Beyoncé

(The answer is yes.)

2. And the proof arrived an hour later

Just her first name! Iconic.

3. Others admired how she casually destroyed Trump without even saying his name

4. And he had nothing to say about it, either

5. Some opined that she’s a better speaker than her husband

6. Or perhaps the best speaker in America?

7. She made everyone want to do better

8. And secretly root for her for President

9. And also want to be adopted by her

10. Basically just never leave, Michelle

11. You had to feel for the guy who had to follow her

12. And of course, people couldn’t resist having a dig at Melania Trump
