Democrats are panicking and terrified of their chances of defeating President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
While there are still roughly a dozen Democrats currently running for president, Fox News dropped a bombshell this week that has everyone talking.
And if this were to happen, that would be bad news for the Democratic Party.
During a segment Monday night on his Fox News program, host Tucker Carlson said there’s good reason to believe former First Lady Michelle Obama could enter the crowded Democratic presidential race.
“If you are wondering who the democratic nominee will be, don’t bet against Michelle Obama,” Carlson said while speaking about the growing list of Democrats seeking their party’s nod.
He then noted that sometimes when a potential candidate claims they aren’t running, they are preparing their campaign behind the scenes.
“For example, David Axelrod who is one of the Obama’s closest and most loyal advisers has been raising a scorched Earth campaign against Joe Biden for months. He has called [Biden] a liar, a coward, all but accused him of having dementia. Would David Axelrod being doing all of that without the consent of the Obamas? No,” Carlson said.
Carlson then Carlson observed that President Barack Obama has delayed the release of his presidential memoirs “until the middle of the Democratic primaries … Coincidence?” he asked.
“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. Maybe she really isn’t interested in joining the race but that would make her unusual among Democrats in this country,” Carlson noted, adding that a “mediocre mayor [Pete Buttigieg] of a small, crime-ridden town in Indiana may actually win the Iowa caucuses.”
That leaves an opening for Michelle Obama, Carlson argued.
“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 the party’s warring factions,” he said.
While some may shrug this off and argue that there’s no way Michelle Obama runs for president in 2020.
That’s fair, but there have been quite a few notable events recently that have fueled speculation that Michelle Obama could run and possible secure the Democratic nomination.
According to a shocking poll from The Boston Herald, Michelle Obama is the clear favorite for Democratic voters — and they’re begging her to run against Trump in 2020.
Back in October, a leaked report revealed that Democratic insiders are freaking out behind the scenes that none of the current candidates can beat Trump.
The report said Democrat party officials are “begging” former Michelle Obama to run in 2020 because they fear Trump will cruise to a second term in office.
Over the summer, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh had a similar theory about Michelle Obama running in 2020.
Limbaugh explained that he believes President Obama sees President Trump dismantling his failed legacy and is furious about it.
As such, President Obama may be intrigued by the idea of Michelle Obama running for president to save his legacy — or what is left of it.
Adding even more fuel to the fire, Limbaugh declared he believes Michelle Obama will announce a presidential run when the Democratic primaries are wrapping up early next year.
