Former first lady Michelle Obama could completely throw Donald Trump off his track, should she decide to run for president of the United States. At least that’s what former Trump official Monica Crowley recently said at the Conservative Political Action Committee, according to the New York Post. “If they were to run Michelle Obama, that would put us in a very difficult position because they’d reach for a candidate who is completely plausible, very popular, and immune to criticism,” Crowley opined.
Obama, meanwhile, hasn’t responded to any of the speculation that she might run for office, but a poll by YouGov does suggest that she stands a winning chance as she’s been voted the most admired woman in the U.S. for three years in a row now, as detailed by Newsweek. If that weren’t enough, Obama already has the support and backing of Joe Rogan, who told his podcast listeners back in December, per The Wrap, “She’s great, she’s intelligent, she’s articulate, she’s the wife of the best president that we have had in our lifetime in terms of like a representative of intelligent articulate people.” That, and the decent chance that she would have the backing of former Republican President George W. Bush would sure help, too.
