[COMMENTARY] Former Trump Aide Says Republicans Fear a Michelle Obama Presidential Run

Donald Trump Michelle Obama Memoir

Former treasury spokeswoman and openly Trumpy Monica Crowley was speaking on Saturday at CPAC, the white supremacy conference in the capital of whiteness, Orlando, Florida (at which Donald Trump strongly suggested he will run again in two years’ time HA HA HA sure you will, Pappy) when she gave voice to something that liberals had only whispered or tweeted about: the GOP fear that former First Lady Michelle Obama might make a Presidential run. Crowley literally said the quiet part out loud: “If Democrats were to run Michelle Obama,” Crowley prognosticated, during a panel session, “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.” And a Black woman, don’t forget about the scariest part!

Though she’s spoken up on key Democratic policies, including the need to protect voting rights, the former First Lady has repeatedly shot down suggestions of a return to politics. Mrs. Obama represents the dignity of the White House in the years preceding the Trump administration, and both Barack and Michelle Obama remain beloved among Democrats. Republicans are just wicked jealous of this, because nobody loves Republicans, not even their own kids a lot of the time (just ask Ted Cruz).

The Queen

Mrs. Obama polls highly in surveys that create a (highly unlikely) situation that would see President Joe Biden go against all indications and decide not to run for a second term and Vice President Kamala Harris not then secure the nomination in his stead. But even that would most likely not be enough to lure Mrs. Obama to the campaign trail. It’s almost like the QAnon-ish types in the GOP are trying really hard to get Michelle Obama to run so they still don’t have to hold back their racisms. But also, they’re JEA-HEH-HEH-HEALOUS. There is no one close to being this cool in the GOP.


But mediocre racists just can’t learn or rise above even a little. Michelle Obama DOES NOT PLAY. Her reluctance isn’t just a cute soundbite; she has repeatedly shot down every suggestion sent her way. In 2018, she told a conference in Boston: “The reason why I don’t want to run for president … is that, first of all, you have to want the job. And you can’t just say, ‘Well, you’re a woman, run.’ We just can’t find the women we like and ask them to do it, because there are millions of women who are inclined and do have the passion for politics. I’ve never had the passion for politics. I just happened to be married to somebody who has the passion for politics, and he drug me kicking and screaming into the arena.” Mrs. Obama has also said she would like to retire – or spend more time “chasing summer”. And her husband has said: “Michelle will not run for president. I can guarantee it.” Republicans would read that and still be all OMFG WHAT IF MICHELLE RUNS NOW?

Republicans love to use fear when they can’t rely on strong candidates of their own. Also, if they can make a Black woman into their personal Boogeyman Scapegoat, even better! Crowley told on herself during her panel discussion: “For all of these people who say, ‘Michelle Obama isn’t political … they’re making too much money now,’ keep a very close eye on her because her trajectory is exactly what Barack Obama did before he ran for president and what Bill and Hillary Clinton both did,” Crowley said. Mrs. Obama has never once run for office, she has only made speeches in support of her husband and other Democrats. Crowley also wrongfully said she thought Democrats would need to appeal to Black women, particularly if Harris could not secure a post-Biden nomination. It’s a lazy and racist take that Michelle Obama would be the only Black woman who could lead the country, but Monica Crowley is like that.

Trump has also projected his own fears about Mrs. Obama. I get why he’s scared of Black women, they’re going to end his political career no matter how hard he gaslights. You can all relax, Michelle Obama isn’t going to run for President. And the only reason this might be disappointing is because we won’t get to watch her scare the GOP on the daily again.
