Michelle Obama is allegedly plotting to knock Joe Biden out as the Democratic presidential nominee and run herself, and her husband is in on the secret.
The 60-year-old former First Lady and Barack Obama have reportedly been whispering to potential donors, and Democratic strategists are said to be eager to make it happen.
As concerns about Biden’s cognitive health grow ahead of his potential re-election, where he’s likely to face off with energetic Donald Trump, White House sources say Michelle’s takeover is being carefully crafted.
Biden will likely announce that he’s not running in May, citing health concerns, paving the way for Michelle to be nominated as a candidate by August, when the Democratic Convention rolls around, according to a bombshell report by the New York Post.
Reports also indicate that Michelle met with hedge fund CEOs in mid-2022 to test her ability to get financial support, allegedly telling the moneymen: “I am running, and I am asking for your support.”
Interestingly enough, it appears she may have been planting the seed in a recent interview after years of telling the public she had no plans on entering politics.
As RadarOnline.com reported, Michelle is “terrified” about the upcoming election. She admitted her concerns on Jay Shetty’s podcast On Purpose, telling him, “What’s going to happen in this next election? I’m terrified about what could possibly happen because our leaders matter.
“Who we elect, who speaks for us, who holds that bully pulpit, it affects us in ways sometimes I think people take for granted.”
She continued, “Who we select, who speaks for us, who holds that bully pulpit, it affects us in ways sometimes I think people take for granted.
“The fact that people think that government — ‘eh, does it even do anything?’ — and I’m like: ‘Oh my God, does the government do everything for us, and we cannot take this democracy for granted.’ And I worry sometimes that we do. Those are the things that keep me up.”
Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly questioned her motive for the podcast.
“She has nothing to promote,” she said during her podcast The Megyn Kelly Show. “She has no book, she has no event, so that means she called them and said: ‘I have something to say.’”
Kelly told her listeners that she also heard whispers about Michelle’s potential run, adding that if the former First Lady ran against Trump, it would be “a whole new ball game.”
Most recently, a bombshell report by the National Enquirer indicated the Obamas were already planting the seed by questioning Biden’s ability.
“The Obamas are convinced Joe’s lost his grip,” an insider confided. “He looks more feeble and clueless every day, and they know he’s lost the confidence of the public.”
Sources said Barack recently huddled with his former senior adviser and top Democratic strategist, David Axelrod, who’s been a vocal critic of Biden’s ability to do the job.
“Obama is letting Axelrod be his public mouthpiece about Joe’s incompetence and declining mental capacities,” dished the insider. “Meanwhile, he and Michelle are working behind the scenes to take him out.”
