"I did not write that line - she came up with it. My contribution was typing it," former chief White House speechwriter to Obama Sarah Hurwitz told "People."

"I feel very guilty when people give me credit for it, her line," Hurwitz continued. "You know, she lives by that. At this time, which is just such a difficult time, to see someone whose life is an embodiment of 'When they go low, we go high,' it is so uplifting. It is such a joy, and I think people are so drawn to that."

Obama has defended the line in the years since she said it at the Democratic convention ahead of the 2016 election. During a book tour for her memoir "Becoming," Obama shared that it was not always easy to not lash out at attacks at her husband, former President Barack Obama.

"I say that because that's how Barack operates," Obama said in November 2018 at a stop at the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. "I mean there's so many times when I just want him - like I know all of you - to just curse them out," Obama said to loud applause.

Hurwitz also weighed in on first lady Melania Trump using phrases in her speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention that were nearly identical to lines from a 2008 Obama speech about "values" passed down from parents to children.

"Making that kind of mistake is every speechwriter's worst nightmare," Hurwitz said.

"I just felt this moment of gratitude that we had the most amazing fact-checkers who scrubbed every line of every speech," Hurwitz says now. "It was so important to the Obamas to always be accurate and always tell the truth to the American people. It was this incredible concern for accuracy and honesty and truth that we lived by every day," she continued.
