Leftist filmmaker believes that Michelle Obama must run against President Donald Trump in order to “crush” him.
During an interview for MSNBC, Michael Moore said, “The only way to remove Trump is to crush Trump.”
He added, “And that’s the question that has to be asked. Who can crush Trump? Who’s the street fighter? … There is one person that would crush Trump — and she hasn’t announced yet. And her last name rhymes with Obama. In fact, it is Obama — Michelle Obama.”
Moore contends that former Vice President Joe Biden and Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders, all Democratic 2020 candidates, could beat Trump.
But he thinks that Obama brings an x-factor that other candidates don’t have.
The filmmaker claims “She would beat him in the debates, he wouldn’t be able to bully her, he wouldn’t be able to nickname her.”
He then asked if anyone suggested that Obama throw her hat in the ring.
“Well, has anyone asked her? If asked to serve, I believe she would serve.”
So far, Obama hasn’t made any concrete moves towards running in 2020. According to a July YouGov poll, she is the most admired woman in world.
Having Michelle Obama at the top of a Democratic presidential ticket makes sense.
Many in the Democratic coalition yearn for the Obama years, which she can draw upon throughout the election cycle when confronting Trump.
On top of that, Obama’s conformity to political correctness culture and her status as First Lady to America’s first black president makes her attractive for minorities in the Democratic coalition.
For Democrats in 2020, minority turnout is crucial.
Michelle Obama would likely be their best bet in that regard.
