Michelle Obama 'terrified' over possibility of Trump winning in November

 January 27, 2024

It's interesting to watch the uptick of news stories involving Michelle Obama as the 2024 election draws near.

In a recent piece, it was noted that the former first lady isn't thrilled with the idea that former President Donald Trump is doing so well in his bid to recapture the White House this year, given the level of legal mess he currently faces.

Michelle Obama didn't name Trump in her rant, but it was clearly implied that she was speaking of his campaign.

Many have already suggested that Michelle Obama could possibly be the Democratic Party's only hope of securing a victory in November, assuming the part could find a way to insert her into the mix by replacing President Joe Biden and presumably Vice President Kamala Harris.

What did she say?

The former first lady raised all kinds of questions during her recent interview on Jay Shetty's "On Purpose" podcast. She referred to Trump's indictments and, not surprisingly, played the race card.

"The bars are different for people in life. That I've learned. Other people can be indicted a bunch of times and still run for office. Black men can't. You just learn to be good. And in the end, you benefit from that extra resilience," Obama said.

Later in the interview, Obama expressed her "concerns" over future issues and how the winner of the election will influence those topics.

"What keeps me up are the things that I know: the war in... too many regions; what AI is going to do for us and the environment; are we moving at all fast enough? What are we doing about education? Are people going to vote? And why aren’t people voting? Are we too stuck to our phones?" Obama said.

She doubled down, insisting that she's kept up at night over thinking about who might be in charge of those issues.

"I mean, those are the things that keep me up because you don’t have control over them. And you wonder…where are we in this? Where are our hearts? What is going to happen in this next election? I am terrified about what could possibly happen because our leaders matter. Who we select, who speaks for us, who holds that bully pulpit," Obama said.

Will it be her?

Though she hasn't dropped any hints or indication that she would be up for running in place of Biden in the 2024 election, many believe it would be the best move for the party.

She's several orders of magnitude more popular and liked by Democrats than Biden or Harris, and she has the kingmaker last name.

Only time will tell if the DNC figures out a way to make that happen. At this point, anything's possible.
