Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh has built a reputation on being a straight shooter and talking about issues that many in the leftist media refuse to cover.
Limbaugh also has a creative mind and thinks outside of the box, and he just dropped a bombshell about former First Lady Michelle Obama running for president in 2020.
During a segment on his program, Limbaugh predicted that the former first lady might decide to run for the presidency — but there’s a twist.
Limbaugh thinks Michelle Obama will announce a presidential run when the Democratic primaries are wrapping up in the next few months.
“Don’t be surprised if she gets in the Democrat presidential primary race after the primaries. Don’t be surprised. I think the Obamas are looking at this as, ‘The primaries? That’s beneath us. We’re not gonna enter the primaries,'” Limbaugh began.
“They’ll let these people fight it out, spend all their money, and then when it looks like none of them has a chance of beating Trump, here comes Michelle (My Belle) Obama at the latter moments of the campaign to jump into the fray and save the day for the Democrat Party,” Limbaugh added.
Limbaugh then detailed how he thinks the 2020 political race will go and what the outcome for Democrats will be.
“They’re gonna let these people eat each other up and spit each other out, beat each other up because this is gonna happen. In order to survive this, they’re gonna have to tear down their opponents, and that is gonna cause damage,” Limbaugh added.
“And after enough of that happens, the Obamas will survey the landscape, they will not pull the trigger and get in if they don’t think it is a lock that she would win. The last thing the Obamas can afford is for Michelle to get in there and not win,” he added.
Now, for the sake of fairness, Michelle Obama has stated that she is not running for president in 2020.
And it would certainly be very strange for her to wait this long to get in the game, but Rush thinks Democrats are open to anything if it means beating President Trump.
Limbaugh’s main point was that he thinks former President Obama sees Trump dismantling his failed legacy and is furious about it.
As such, the former president may be intrigued by the idea of the former first lady running for president in order to preserve what is left of his legacy.
So his theory is that Michelle Obama may be intrigued to run so that she can save the legacy of her husband — or what is left of it.
Limbaugh also said he thinks she would only run if the Obamas were convinced her election was a sure thing and that she could actually win.
There’s no indication at all that Michelle Obama will run this cycle and try to take on Trump, but Rush is correct that it would set up arguably one of the most anticipated elections in modern American history if she did.
