Ruth Marcus: Michelle Obama's speech, in the quarantine-induced quiet of her home, spoke ... to the undeniably grim reality of America under Trump.

"It's a hard time, and everyone's feeling it in different ways," she began, and so ensued 18 minutes of relentless indictment of President Trump, even if she deigned to mention his name only once. The cold, hard truth. That's what Michelle Obama delivered. She went high -- and right for the jugular.
