They want the Obamas back. After Donald Trump’s shock win over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election on Tuesday, November 8, some people are already urging Michelle Obama to run for president in 2020.
Michelle was pretty much the coolest first lady ever, whether she was belting out tunes with James Corden for his Carpool Karaoke, advocating for and inspiring women, or just being a mom to her daughters, Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15. She worked tirelessly to combat childhood obesity, help military families and further education for all. Not to mention she’s become a style icon who shows up to every engagement looking classy and chic.
Soon after the election results, dismayed social media users began calling on Michelle to run for president in 2020 with the hashtag #michelle2020. “It’s not too early to start the Michelle Obama 2020 campaign is it? #MichelleObama #Michelle2020,” one tweeter wrote. Another pointed out that if she became POTUS it would be extra historic. “On a good note now Michelle Obama can attempt to break two glass ceilings as the first black female president #Michelle2020,” one person posted.
Despite her built-in fan base, Michelle has repeatedly insisted she will never run for political office. Her husband reiterated that last month while speaking to Sway Calloway on the Sway in the Morning radio show. “She will never run for office,” he said. “She is as talented and brilliant a person as there is and I could not be prouder of her, but Michelle does not have the patience or the inclination to actually be a candidate herself."
