Michelle Obama says she will not be seeking the presidency

 March 8, 2024

It has been announced by Michelle Obama's office that she will not be running for president, putting an end to the rumors that she will be inserted into the ballot in 2024 to take President Joe Biden's nomination.

In light of the fact that the incumbent is facing challenges about his age and a lack of support in the polls, commentators from both the Left and the Right have speculated that the former first lady should attempt to save the Democrats this time around, as The Telegraph reported. On the other hand, Mrs. Obama's office said on Tuesday that she will not be running for the election of president.

In accordance with what former First Lady Michelle Obama has stated on multiple occasions throughout the course of her career, she will not be running for president, according to Crystal Carson, who serves as the director of communications for her office.

In an interview with NBC News, she stated, “Mrs Obama supports President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’s re-election campaign.”

A New Puppet

Vivek Ramaswamy, a previous candidate for the Republican Party, said that the Democrats shouldn't let the 81-year-old Joe Biden to run for president. He also expressed the possibility that Michelle Obama may run for president on twenty separate times.

The statement was made by Mr. Ramaswamy, who stated, "It's going to be a new puppet – Gavin Newsom, Michelle Obama, you name it." Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-Ga.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are two further figures on the right who have advocated for the notion.

In addition, Democrats who are concerned about Mr. Biden have brought up the same notion. Following the publication of a report by special counsel Robert Hur, in which Mr. Biden was described as a "elderly man with a poor memory," Mrs. Obama's name began to increase in popularity on X, formerly known as Twitter.

According to a study conducted by Rasmussen Reports and published a month ago, she was also the most popular pick among Democrats to take the position of Mr. Biden on the ticket for the 2024 election.

For years, however, the former first lady, now 60, has stated that there is "zero chance" that she would run for president.

She stated in 2019 that “there are so many ways to improve this country and build a better world, and I keep doing plenty of them, from working with young people to helping families lead healthier lives,” ranging from working with young people to assisting families in leading healthier lifestyles.

“But sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office will never be one of them. It’s just not for me,” she said.

Not in Her Heart

In a show that was made available on Netflix in the previous year, she stated that politics is “hard... and the people who get into it… It’s got to be in your soul, because it is so important. It is not in my soul.”

During an interview with the BBC in 2022, she also stated that she "detests" queries on her potential bid for president.

In the same way that she did in 2020, Mrs. Obama intends to provide her support to the Biden campaign as the race heats up this autumn, according to sources who spoke to NBC News.

Given the presence of her husband, Barack Obama, it is likely that her involvement will be quite minimal. The spokesman for the Biden campaign, Kevin Munoz, stated that Mrs. Obama was “enormously helpful in the fight to beat Donald Trump” in 2020.
