Michelle Obama shock: Ex-FLOTUS ‘could still run for President’ as Barack snubs Biden

Last week, the former First Lady issued a statement saying he was uninterested in running for President but political commentator Tucker Carlson has said this could all be a rouse. He said on Fox News Live: “Don’t bet against Michelle Obama.

“Last week, the former first lady issued a statement saying that she has no interest in being president. That’s what she claimed. But there are signs that that’s not true.”

Mr Tucker noted that former US President Barack Obama’s adviser David Axelrod’s previous attacks on Democrat Joe Biden is a sign that Michelle could enter the race.

Barack has also publicly refused to endorse Mr Biden, despite him being vice President under Barack.

Mr Carlson continued: “If Obama had endorsed Joe Biden, the race would be over.

“Obama hasn’t endorsed Joe Biden because he doesn’t want to endorse Joe Biden.

“Why? Maybe he’s got other plans.”

The Fox News anchor also said the recent release of Michelle’s journal could be a “coincidence”.

Michelle’s book would allow her “to get on the road and talk to crowds”.

He added: “Obama’s presidential memoir was also supposed to come out this year. Now, its release has been delayed until the middle of the Democratic primaries.

“In other words, at exactly the moment when Democrats will be thinking deeply about how to beat Donald Trump, America will be talking about the Obamas.”

“The Democratic Party is ripping itself apart over race and gender and class.

“Michelle Obama, let’s be honest, is one of the only people who could unite the party’s warring factions.”

The former First Lady has previously dismissed calls for her to launch a presidential bid.

She has said she believes there are other ways she could help the nation.

She said in August that there is “zero chance” that she will run for president in 2020.

So far, Mr Biden is leading the crowded Democratic candidate group in most the polls.

He has more than a 10-point lead over Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

However, Michelle’s critics have taken to Twitter to voice their dislike of the controversial idea.

One user said: “There is zero chance Michelle Obama will run for president. You people are so delusional!”

Another user called James said: “Who cares if Michelle Obama runs for President? America will not vote in another Obama.”

One user called Terry said: “No Michelle Obama, no Oprah, no Hillary. None of them are going to beat Joe Biden, much less President Donald Trump.”

Another said: “Michelle Obama has nothing to offer the country except socialism.”
