The Democrat Party “Savior”
Rush Limbaugh thinks Team Obama may be strategizing a Michelle Obama run for president in 2020. The radio host said Barack and Michelle are so ticked off that Trump won that they “want back in.” Limbaugh cited Michelle’s extensive, never-ending book tour as a sign that the Obamas’ lust for power could result in the ever vicious and vengeful former first lady announcing her candidacy.
During a Spring 2019 promotional interview for her book at London’s O2 arena, Mrs. Obama sounded an awful lot like what she sounded like in 2008. Who can forget Mrs. Obama’s inflated and anti-America rhetoric while campaigning for her husband? Eleven years later, she’s still fixated on Barack’s breaking the color barrier at 1600 Pennsylvania. Michelle even suggested to the packed house in London that if presidents could run for a third term, Barack would have won in 2016. No matter, she says, what “happened before” should sustain us for the time being. Not surprisingly, Michelle didn’t mention the Democratic Party’s Spring flavor of the month, Pete Buttigieg, the candidate Joy Behar is calling the “second coming of Obama.”
Here’s what Michelle speaking in London was quoted as saying, according to Breitbart:
“I have to remind people that Barack Obama was elected twice in the United States. That really did happen[.] … That wasn’t make-believe. The country actually did accomplish it and half the people who voted in the last election, if they could have, they would have voted for him for a third term. We have to remember that what is happening today is true, but what happened before was also true … that should give us some solace at some level.”
“Besides,” she continued, “for anyone who had any problems with Barack Obama, let’s just think about what we were troubled by — there were never any indictments.”
After reminding her British audience of the eight years Barack Obama was able to avoid being indicted (she failed to add because of a fawning press and the color of his skin), Michelle struck at President Trump via a swipe at “divorced dads.” Recent Census Bureau child custody statistics indicate that nearly 40 percent of all non-custodial fathers have no access to or visitation rights with their children. If Michelle Obama has her way, that number will be much higher. When she was in the White House, the ex-mom-in-chief used to insult her husband and lecture men “to be better fathers.” Now she’s trashing millions of divorced American men in order to attack President Trump. “America, under President Trump, is a ‘broken family,'” she said.
“We are a little unsettled. Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That’s what America is going through right now. We are living with divorced dad.”
It doesn’t dawn on the Harvard law grad that if we are living with a “divorced dad,” President Trump, it is because “Mommy Dearest Barack” was an abusive and unfit parent. The Great Divorce of 2016 was the best thing that happened to this country. How many men does she disparage who lost their jobs and their families because of Obama’s economic policies? How many despairing dads lost their businesses?
Michelle followed up this veiled contempt for dads who have endured the pain of divorce with praise for London’s diversity as compared to American cities. It looks as though her “for the first time in my life I am proud of my country” anti-America campaign has begun anew:
“I was looking out over the city, London, a beautiful city, and the thing I love about it is truly representative of true international diversity in ways that you don’t see in cities mostly, in particularly even in the United States.”
Mrs. Obama thinks U.S. cities are not diverse enough. From her speeches and remarks about this “racist” country, we can conclude that Michelle thinks there are just too many white people in urban areas.
In recent weeks, many have wondered why Barack Obama has not come to the aid of his former vice president, Joe Biden. On his own speaking tour in Europe, Obama told a town hall group in Germany he’s worried Democratic presidential contenders are becoming too “rigid” and creating “a circular firing squad.”
What Could Trigger a Michelle Run?
Rush Limbaugh is not the only one who feels there’s a good shot that Michelle Obama will ultimately throw her hat into the ring. But Rush thinks certain things will have to happen before she jumps in:
“They will not pull the trigger and get in if they don’t think it is a lock that she would win,” Limbaugh said. “The last thing the Obamas can afford is for Michelle to get in there and not win.”
“One thing to keep in mind that if Michelle does pull the trigger, whatever she pulls to get in there, the money would immediately shift to her because everybody on that side would think that [Barack] Obama and [former Obama senior adviser] Valerie Jarrett are gonna be back in running things and she’s gonna be a figurehead stand-in. That’s what they want anyway.”
“There are days I think it’s automatic that she’s going to and other days, I can’t explain why, that I don’t. I think that they’re gonna be happy becoming hundred million dollar net worth plus people and living the life which is what leftists actually want to do,” Limbaugh explained. “It’s too soon to say.”
“I am convinced that The One (Barack Obama) wants back in. I think The One is sitting there seething over the dismantling of his agenda and the Trump verbal assault on it every day. But he can’t run again.”
Will Michelle Obama get in the 2020 presidential race? No one but Michelle can truthfully answer that question — and she DID, to Oprah Winfrey:
As the mainstream media go all-in for a different Democrat candidate every other day, the Obamas have stepped up their appearances here and overseas. In general, neither has shown support for any particular candidate. With Michelle’s venomous attacks on the rise again, Rush might be right about her.
