Fox News host Tucker Carlson predicted that Michelle is about to enter the 2020 presidential race, suggesting that her husband Barack Obama has been holding off on endorsing any other Democratic candidate because he is waiting to endorse her.
“Don’t bet against Michelle Obama,” Carlson said, according to The Hill . “Last week, the former first lady issued a statement saying that she has no interest in being president. That’s what she claimed. But there are signs that that’s not true.”
Carlson went on to speculate that Obama’s refusal to endorse the top Democratic contender, his own former Vice President Joe Biden, is a sign that the ex-president is waiting for Michelle to enter the race. Another indicator of this that Carlson referenced was Obama adviser David Axelrod’s recent attacks on Biden.
“If Obama had endorsed Joe Biden, the race would be over,” Carlson continued. “Obama hasn’t endorsed Joe Biden because he doesn’t want to endorse Joe Biden. Why? Maybe he’s got other plans.”
Carson then said that it could be a “coincidence” that the release of Michelle Obama’s newest book would “require her … to get on the road and talk to crowds.”
“Obama’s presidential memoir was also supposed to come out this year. Now, its release has been delayed until the middle of the Democratic primaries,” Carlson added. “In other words, at exactly the moment when Democrats will be thinking deeply about how to beat Donald Trump, America will be talking about the Obamas.”
“The Democratic Party is ripping itself apart over race and gender and class,” Carlson said. “Michelle Obama, let’s be honest, is one of the only people who could unite the party’s warring factions.”
Michelle has repeatedly stated that she will not be running for president, going so far as to say in August that there was “zero chance” that she’d run in 2020. However, various polls  have indicated that Michelle would have a good chance of winning if she were to enter the raise. In recent months, liberals have repeatedly been calling on Michelle to enter the race.
Liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore said in August that there is only one candidate who would “crush” Trump in 2020, “and her last name rhymes with Obama.”
“In fact, it is Obama — Michelle Obama,” Moore said on MSNBC . “Everybody watching this right now knows she is a beloved American and she would go in there and she would beat him.”
“She would beat him in the debates, he wouldn’t be able to bully her, he wouldn’t be able to nickname her,” Moore went on to predict.
It remains to be seen if Michelle will actually throw her hat into the race.
