Donald J. Trump was just elected as our next president less than one month ago and liberals are already frantically trying to find a candidate to run in 2020.
In the last few weeks, three liberal political action committees have formed urging First Lady Michelle Obama to run for president in 2020. These new groups have formed despite Mrs. Obama saying she has no plans to EVER run for elected office.
From The Hill:
But that hasn’t been enough to stop a viral effort from forming since Donald Trump’s election victory. In the days after the election, the hashtag #Michelle2020 began trending on Twitter.
The first PAC encouraging a Michelle Obama presidential run formed even before Election Day results were tallied.
Ready for Michelle, a super PAC that could raise unlimited sums from donors, filed its paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Oct. 31.
The name echoes a fundraising vehicle formed prior to the White House bid of Hillary Clinton, which just became Ready PAC once she announced her candidacy.
Donald Garrett, a federal government employee from Virginia, founded the Ready for Michelle super PAC.
He told The Hill that there are about five people, including himself, volunteering their time to the effort — including circulating a pro-Michelle petition and running the website, www.ReadyforMichelle.com, and its Facebook page.
In the month since the group’s founding, the PAC has raised less than $1,000, he said, but garnered more than 1,000 signatures on the petition urging Obama to run. As a federal employee, Garrett is unable to engage in political fundraising, so others involved with the group handle money issues.
It shouldn’t be surprising that liberals are already trying to reject Trump’s electoral victory even before he officially is sworn into office, but of all people Michelle Obama?!?!
