Donald Trump hasn’t even been sworn in yet, and people are already looking to 2020 for someone to save them from four years of Trump. Some of these people have been hoping that Michelle Obama would pick up Hillary’s torch and keep the dream alive.
The nation has shown that it’s largely ok with a woman President, and it also showed that Hillary was definitely NOT that woman. So the longing gaze of American dreams has searched and landed on Michelle Obama, but she may have her own plans.
In a recent interview the First Lady sat down with Oprah Winfrey to lay to rest the rumors and to appeal to the desires of her fandom to go and find another woman to hail as their prophet for the White House. She will never be running for the office of President.
“I don’t make stuff up, I’m not coy. I’m pretty direct. If I was interested in it, I would say. I don’t believe in playing games.”
Thank you, for clearing that up, Mrs. Obama. There’s probably a very large section of society that his very pleased that she won’t be running in 2020. At least today, who knows if her answer will change in 4 years.
It appears that Mrs. Obama has had her fill of the public spotlight and would like to be able to pursue private goals and focus on her family without having every move scrutinized by the media and public.
“This is hard, it’s a hard job… When you run, your kids’ lives stop… And it’s not for us to complain about it, so you don’t hear complaints, but it is a truth, an actuality, that there is a weight to it,”
Despite now feeling like all is lost and in a state of hopelessness, the First Lady did indicate that there would be a peaceful transition of power and that she would do everything in her power to help the Trump’s move into the White House.
“Because no matter how we felt going into it, it is important for the health of this nation that we support the commander-in-chief,”
Do you think Michelle will circle back to this idea in 4 years time, and is just laying a good cover story to push people off the idea for the time being?
