Michelle Obama Will Be 2024 Democrat Nominee After Biden Is Removed, Roger Stone Predicts
File this one under – Worst Possible Nightmare Scenario.
The political strategist Roger Stone made a wild prediction on social media that involves Michelle Obama as the Democrat nominee for President in 2024.
The basis for Stone’s prediction is a statement released by the former First Lady which details her personal story in relation to the Supreme Court ruling that affirmative action programs at college institutions are unconstitutional.
“Today, my heart breaks for any young person out there who’s wondering what their future holds — and what kinds of chances will be open to them,” she said.
“Today is a reminder that we’ve got to do the work not just to enact policies that reflect our values of equity and fairness, but to truly make those values real in all of our schools, workplaces, and neighborhoods,” Obama added.

Michelle Obama 2024?
Obama’s statement on affirmative action and the work “we’ve got to do” was all Roger Stone needed to determine she is laying the groundwork for a 2024 presidential run.
But in order for that to happen, Democrats must find a way to dispose of the unpopular President Joe Biden, who is universally questioned over his mental and physical abilities to carry out the job.

Stone argues that the “Big Guy” could be forced to resign or forcibly ousted via the 25th Amendment, which allows for removal if the President is clearly incapable of doing his job.
“More proof that she is, as I have said for over six months, running for president and going to be the 2024 Democratic nominee after Biden is removed either through forced resignation or the 25th amendment,” Stone wrote in a tweet sharing Obama’s statement.
Indeed, he has made the argument for quite some time, noting that Biden is a weak candidate who despite all of the negative media coverage and political persecution facing his main adversary – Donald Trump – trails him in the polls.
“I believe that the change in the Democrat primary schedule benefits the potential candidacy of Michelle Obama,” he later told The Epoch Times.

Mrs. Obama’s Repeatedly Denied Interest in Running
Obama has repeatedly denied any interest in running for President in 2024.
In an interview with Amtrak Magazine’s ‘The National’ she was asked: “If you thought the country needed you and you thought you could really help our nation, is there even a one percent chance you’d consider running?”
“Just between us, and the readers of this magazine — there’s zero chance,” Mrs. Obama replied.

But that was in 2019. Could she be persuaded to act if her party desperately needs her, as may be the case?
Stone certainly thinks so and insists any denials of wanting to run are actually further proof of his theory.
“The more Michelle Obama denies an interest publicly, the more I am convinced that she will be their candidate,” he said. “She is not out doing a book tour and voter registration drives because she needs the money or the publicity.”
Sports betting site Vegas Insider currently lists Michelle Obama as having 33 to 1 odds of winning the 2024 presidential election, tied with California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) and his medicine cabinet filled with more tubs of Brylcreem than Carter has liver pills.
Obama is ranked sixth currently, barely trailing Biden’s Vice President Kamala Harris. Her odds of becoming the Democrat nominee are currently 16 to 1.
She has recently been working with her celebrity voting rights group – When We All Vote – which embraces legislation to expand mail-in voting.

Mrs. Obama has warned the American people that she will use her voter registration group as a means to be involved in politics “forever.”
“One of the biggest ways I think I can help is to make sure that people understand the importance of voting and the power of voting in a democracy,” she said in an interview with Jenna Bush Hager. “That’s one way that we will be involved forever.”
She’s previously indicated she’d like to create an army of “forever first ladies,” and has, on multiple occasions, declared it would be a good idea for the country to “invest in creating thousands of ‘me’s.'”
It’s a frightening prospect. Michelle Obama remains inexplicably popular with the American people and comes off as infinitely more likable than either Biden or Trump.
If somebody pushed her to start a campaign, Obama would instantly be an overwhelming favorite.
