Former First Lady Michelle Obama is on a massive book tour.
Some pundits believe this is a springboard for a 2020 Presidential campaign.
And what she said on stage may be the biggest hint yet about challenging Trump.
Michelle Obama appeared at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York to promote her book “Becoming.”
While on stage with actress Sarah Jessica Parker, the former First Lady hurled several pot shots at Donald Trump.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Often time, when you’re the first or the only, the bar shifts a lot, right? The bar gets set, you meet it, exceed it, they move the bar, and we’re watching that right now — the bar’s just swinging, and swinging,” she told the crowd, according to the Associated Press.
Michelle suggested that the “swinging bar” had something to do with avoiding legal entanglements while president.
“It’s a totally new bar — never seen this bar before, ever,” she said. “But when we were in office, our bar was very different — not getting indicted, and telling the truth.”
Michelle then joked with the audience about Trump’s current predicaments: “This is going to reported on — ‘Michelle Obama throwing shade,’” she said as the audience roared with laughter, according to AP. “These are just facts!”
To many Democrats, that sounds like a Presidential candidate.
Michelle Obama would be their dream nominee.
But she has repeatedly shot down the idea she would enter the 2020 race.
However, if the Democrat field proves weak enough, party leaders and fake news media members will be begging her to jump in the race with the promise that the nomination will be handed to her on a silver platter.
Will she be able to turn that down?
