Given just how disheveled the current field of 2020 democratic candidates appears to be, there were sure to be rumors and intimations regarding the possibility of salvaging the party’s chances come next November.
With Joe Biden’s shaky claim to the frontrunner spot coming under heavy fire on Wednesday, the democrats are in trouble. On both nights of this week’s debates, the most-searched candidates were far, far from the mainstream . Night one saw a massive boost in popularity for spiritual guru and self-help author Marianne Williamson – known for her New Age nuances. On night two, it was Tulsi Gabbard who stole the show after annihilating top-tier candidate Kamala Harris over her hypocritical stance on marijuana.
In short: The democrats are none too impressed with whom the party has already aligned themselves.
This has led to a number of pundits and prominent democratic voices to speak up regarding a possible late-entering, dark horse candidate – often believed to possibly be Michelle Obama.
The former First Lady addressed those possibilities head-on this week.
In a new interview published in Amtrak’s magazine The National, Obama sat down with 12-year-old journalist Hilde Lysiak to promote her Better Make Room campaign aimed at engaging college students.
Lysiak pressed Obama about seeking the highest office in the land, something she has previously expressed no interest in.
“A lot of people want you to run for president. You’ve publicly said that you aren’t interested, but everyone says that until they actually run,” Lysiak said. “Just between us, if you thought the country needed you and you thought you could really help our nation, is there even a one percent chance you’d consider running?”
So, what did Michelle say?
“Just between us, and the readers of this magazine — there’s zero chance,” Obama responded. “There are so many ways to improve this country and build a better world, and I keep doing plenty of them, from working with young people to helping families lead healthier lives. But sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office will never be one of them. It’s just not for me.”
Earlier this week, provocative liberal filmmaker Michael Moore implored Michelle Obama to run for President, claiming that she would handily outperform incumbent President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
