Last night, on his Fox News show, host Tucker Carlson stunned his viewers with his prediction about who will be the Democrat Presidential candidate. Carlson told them not to rule out the possibility of the divisive former first lady, Michelle Obama, jumping into the race, even though she says she isn’t interested in running.
Last week, the former Democrat governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson appeared on CNN, where he predicted the Democrats would have a brokered convention and that the delegates would choose Michelle Obama to be their candidate.
Washington Examiner – “If you’re wondering who the Democratic nominee will be, don’t bet against Michelle Obama,” he said on Monday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight. “Last week, the former first lady issued a statement claiming she has no interest in being president, but there are signs that’s not true.”
Carlson then pointed to several examples that have made him suspicious about a potential Obama bid, including David Axlerod’s attacks on 2020 front-runner and former Vice President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama’s refusal to endorse Biden in the race so far, and reports that the former president tried to convince his No. 2 not to enter.
“If Obama had endorsed Biden, the race would be over … Obama hasn’t endorsed Joe Biden because he doesn’t want to. Why? Maybe he’s got other plans,” he speculated. “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 Trump, America will be talking about the Obamas. Coincidence? Maybe.”
He added, “Maybe it’s also a coincidence that Michelle Obama just released yet another book last week, one that will require her, of course, to get on the road and talk to crowds … 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 its warring factions.”
Carlson then pointed out that the former first lady was found to be the most admired woman in the world in a recent poll. He also warned his viewers to expect the unexpected.
“One of the main lessons of Donald Trump’s 2016 election is that you never really know. Unexpected things happen far more often than we imagine,” he said, before playing a 2006 clip of Barack Obama insisting he wasn’t planning on running for the Oval Office in 2008. “Just months after he did that, Barack Obama joined the presidential race. Three years later, almost to the day, he was inaugurated president of the United States.”
Is the divisive, angry Michelle Obama really the person America wants as their first female president?
Over the past year, a softer, gentler Michelle Obama has emerged, making us wonder if she’s softening her severe, divisive persona, as she gets ready to enter the 2020 race.
If Mooch decides to jump in, look for the Bush and Romney families and the never-Trump swamp creatures surrounding the old guard Republican Party, getting behind the divisive former first lady.
