Conservatives have speculated that Michelle Obama could replace Biden in the presidential race.
Former first lady Michelle Obama has no plans on replacing President Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election, former Obama White House advisor David Axelrod said.
Axelrod told CNN host Michael Smerconish on Saturday that Michelle Obama "never was interested in a political life" even though her husband, former President Barack Obama, ran for U.S. Senate in 2004 and later served in the White House from 2009 to 2017. "She is not someone who likes politics. She doesn't like the tone and tenor of politics."
Speaking to the possibility of Michelle Obama replacing Biden on the Democratic ticket, Axelrod said: "I would be floored if she would consent to that. They feel that they gave 10 years of their life to this. And I'm sure she feels as Barbara Bush did when she said there has to be someone other than the Bushes and the Clintons who could be President of the United States. My guess is that's her attitude."
Conservatives, meanwhile, have speculated that Michelle Obama could replace Biden in the presidential race.
"I think that it should not be shocking to see someone like Michelle Obama take the role of the nomination," former Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy told Fox News Digital on Saturday.
After the special counsel's report on Biden's alleged mishandling of classified materials was released, Ramaswamy said that the former first lady offers Democrats "a convenient path out of that problem" because she is "an alternative to Biden that they may view as more palatable in a general election."
Texas GOP Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said Friday on X, formerly Twitter: "I’ve said for over a year many times that Joe Biden would not be on the ticket and Michelle Obama would be the likely nominee. It’s clear the Democrat deep state run by Barack Obama knew they had to take him down to give them a chance in November."
laying the groundwork for “draft michelle” movement
so... it’s trump v nuisance...
Moochie could be coronated if she wanted. She’d be a runaway winner. But, she’s lazy, and spiteful. I think being president would be the last thing this America hater wants.
It’s an actual job with actual work involved. I can’t imagine her wanting it pulling her away from her pampered lifestyle.
Because he is polling at near zero.
Until this story I thought it was a long shot at best. This one story convinces me they really are going to try it.
“She is not someone who likes politics. She doesn’t like the tone and tenor of politics”
America seeing manufactured consent, being prodded for the The Reluctant Saviour.
Go Big Mike!
ya gonna get slaughtered in a general vs our PDJT, The GOAT!
What do you expect them to say?
If Michelle Obama was forced to jump in and try and rescue the dems, giving up her lazy and lavish lifestyle....well, you thought she was angry before? Ha! The nation would pay dearly for putting her in the White House!
Someone else thinks they're OWED the spot....standing in the way is dangerous.
Both OBAMA’s are skilled liars
she’ll join him on the ticket replacing kamala and then she’ll ascend when joe is brain dead
I thought Michelle was a shoo-in at the DNC Chicago convention this summer, but now sHrillary is making Presidential noises, so we may have a twist to the plot before then.
Would be the most unqualified person ever....not that it would matter to the left. Anything but Trump. We could have Satan himself openly declaring himself such, along with the promise to bring pain, misery, and death - but will run against Trump, they would still vote for him.
She is even lazier than her husband.
I don’t know why everyone persists in this stupid fantasy. She aint going there.
“It’s an actual job with actual work involved. I can’t imagine her wanting it pulling her away from her pampered lifestyle.”
I respectfully disagree. She’d be nothing but a figurehead. She’d make no decisions. Attend a few meetings and photo ops, make the occasional speech, give a highly edited softball interview with an adoring media personality once a quarter or so. All the while raking it in from payoffs like “hubby” did.
This confirms that Moochelle is in. She will not have to run. She will be drafted at the Dems convention. Joe will go for medical reasons. And the usual one, for family reasons. Joe will get an elaborate and loving send off at the Dems convention. A revved up Viking funeral, but without Potato being put onto the burning boat.
*And* Jill and Joe will get some highlights reels on Tik-Tok and YouTube. -——— “Doc Jill and Potato Joe, the White House years. When they teamed, together to undo all Trump policies”
This will be enough to placate Fake Doc Jill. Though this glory hound is addicted to living large in the White House, and rather remain there. Doc Jill will have to settle for 4 years and her memories.
Axelrod is just another pathetic Democrat liar, so if he says Michelle isn’t interested, the odds of her running are now much greater.
