The day after the election of Donald Trump, Twitter was ablaze with heartbroken female Hillary Clinton supporters, exclaiming, “Michelle Obama 2020!”
Enthusiasm for a second “President Obama” was in evidence even earlier, after the First Lady’s speech at the Democratic National Convention was widely called the best of the entire event.
Liberals are holding out hope that, with such a thin bench for upcoming elections, they could use a rock star name with good speaking chops—in another former First Lady.
Here’s some good news, and some bad news: Obama says his wife Michelle “will never run for office.”
The bad news is… how can you believe a word President Obama says?
“Michelle will never run for office,” the president told Rolling Stone in an interview conducted the day after the election. “She is as talented a person as I know. You can see the incredible resonance she has with the American people. But I joke that she’s too sensible to want to be in politics.”
Obama says that after he hands the keys to the White House to President-elect Donald Trump, he plans to “sleep for a couple weeks” and take Michelle “on a well-deserved vacation.”
Of course, the Obamas have been taking vacations on the taxpayers’ dime practically since the day after Barack was sworn in…
Despite his insistence, you just know that far too many American leftists are already gearing up for a Democratic ticket topped with Michelle Obama, with — who knows? — maybe Chelsea Clinton in the V.P. spot.
How sad, especially for a nation founded in part to escape the insular tyranny of a monarchy that passed down power through generations of the same family.
What was the point of the American Revolution if the nation is going to stick to voting for the same Bush/Clinton/Obama family dynasties?
