While the betting markets of PredictIt only give former First Lady Michelle Obama a 11% chance of entering the crowded 2020 Democrat field, conservative talk show icon Rush Limbaugh still thinks it’s likely.
Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh is urging voters to keep an eye out for the Obamas as the 2020 election approaches because the former first couple believes they still have something to accomplish.
“I think the Obamas collectively think they’ve got a lot of scores to settle,” Limbaugh told his listeners Tuesday.
He explained the possibility that Michelle Obama would enter the Democratic race hasn’t been ruled out.
“A lot of people, when I say this, ‘Rush, there’s no way. She’s not gonna give up the life she’s got. Nobody would. She’s rich. She’s famous. She’d have to work when she doesn’t want to work. She can go wherever she wants to go, she’s treated like royally.’”
“But she’s not the reason, folks. It’s Barack Hussein O who wants back in,” he said.
“Don’t discount the idea that Michelle (My Belle) Obama has got her own passionate and radical ideas. I think the Obamas collectively think they’ve got a lot of scores to settle. That 2016 Trump victory was taken as a personal humiliating, resounding rejection. Obama’s out there, he campaigned more for Hillary than she campaigned for herself,” he said.
The topic came up when a caller asked why Barack Obama hasn’t endorsed any Democratic candidate.
“The main reason he’s not endorsing anybody is because his wife may jump into this thing at the end of it. He also can’t afford to lose! If he endorses somebody that loses? The worst thing in the world that could happen is for that to happen,” he said.
