Michael Moore says Michelle Obama would 'crush' Trump if she ran for President
It's midterm election season baby, and that means a few things for Americans. Mostly, it means stressing out about politics and who might be running the country at the end of 2020. No matter who you want to win, there's nothing worse than anticipating your next four years as a US citizen.
As a string of Democrat debates to win the nomination - and run against Trump, as it looks right now - take place, political tensions are running higher and higher every day.
But some people aren't totally satisfied with the Democrats that go head-to-head at these televised debates. For example, filmmaker Michael Moore thinks that Michelle Obama is the only person who could win in a race against President Donald Trump.
Michelle Obama compares Trump's presidency to 'living with a divorced dad':
Moore thinks the person who will beat Trump has to be a street fighter, i.e. the former First Lady. He believes that Trump would have a really hard time bullying the beloved American woman in debates. He shared his thoughts in MSNBC's post-debate coverage:
"We have to have a candidate who is beloved by the American people and who is outside the political inner circle, somebody who's not a politician, somebody who's gonna win."
And Moore knows exactly who that person is:
"Frankly, I think, there's a person that can do this if the election were held today, there is one person that would crush Trump and she hasn't announced yet and her last name rhymes with Obama. In fact, it is Obama. Michelle Obama."
More than anything, people like Moore are worried that it's not enough to just beat Trump. Last year, Hillary Clinton beat Trump in the popular vote, but lost the electoral college vote. And Moore's worst fear is that happens with this year's front-running candidates: Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren.
Moore says we need someone who will win the electoral college too. Will Mrs. Obama ever throw her hat into the ring? Only time will tell...
