Michelle Obama urges all Individuals to simply accept Biden victory: "This isn’t a sport"

In an Instagram post on Monday, former first lady Michelle Obama urged "all Americans" to "respect the election results" and support a smooth transition in power.

Ms. Obama criticized what she called "baseless conspiracy theories" about the election results and said they were dangerous.

She also claimed that her own transfer of power was difficult because of Donald Trump's "racist lies" about her husband.

Michelle Obama: "This is not a game"

"Our love for the country requires that we respect the results of an election, even if we don't like it or wish it didn't – the presidency does not belong to any individual or party," wrote Ms. Obama.

She continued, "To pretend to play with these baseless conspiracy theories – be it for personal or political gain – is to put the health and safety of our country at risk."

"This is not a game," said Obama.

Although Team Trump is still questioning the results in key battlefield states of Arizona, Pennsylvania and Michigan, the media and Democrats behave as if the election has already been won by Biden.

Michelle Obama claims her own transition has been difficult because of racism

The former first lady also described how difficult it was for her to meet with Melania Trump after the 2016 election.

"Donald Trump had spread racist lies about my husband that put my family at risk," Obama claimed.

She did not elaborate on what these racist lies were or how they "endangered" her family.

"That wasn't something I wanted to forgive. But I knew that I had to find the strength and maturity for our country to put my anger aside."

"So I greeted Melania Trump at the White House and spoke to her about my experience and answered every question she had …" Obama continued.

President Trump remains defiant

"My advice to President Trump is that if you want to be remembered as someone who puts the country first at this late stage in the game, it is time for you to do the same," added Obama.

But President Trump doesn't have it.

The defiant president said over the weekend that the race against Biden was a "rigged election".

"He only won in the eyes of FAKE NEWS MEDIA," tweeted Trump.

“I don't admit anything! We still have a long way to go. THIS WAS A RIGGED CHOICE! "
