In a recent episode of his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz,” Senator Ted Cruz of Texas made a bold prediction that has raised eyebrows across the internet. Here’s the whole story.
Replacing Biden With First Lady Obama
Cruz suggested that the Democratic Party might replace Joe Biden as its nominee for the 2024 presidential election, with none other than former First Lady Michelle Obama stepping into the spotlight.
He said, “Here’s the scenario that I think is perhaps the most likely and most dangerous. In August of 2024, the Democrat kingmakers jettison Joe Biden and parachute in Michelle Obama.”
“Michelle Obama – number one, you don’t infuriate African-American women, which is a critical part of the constituency the Democrats are relying on to win. Number 2 – If you pick from any of the four, the other three are pissed. Because they’re all to some extent, peers, they’re rivals, all jabbing knives at each other,” he continued.
“Michelle Obama because she was the first lady has the ability to parachute in above all four and say, ‘Hey, we’re not picking among any of you,” he added.
Guaranteeing a Republican Failure
This move, Cruz argued, could unite the party and put Republicans at a significant disadvantage in the race for the presidency.
Cruz highlighted the potential danger that this scenario poses to the Republican Party, as Michelle Obama, with her charisma and widespread appeal, could “wake up” one day as the most powerful person in the world.
Ted Cruz’s prediction gains traction in line with the recent developments in Democratic circles.
Reports have suggested that there have been “secret back-channel talks” among influential Democrats about the possibility of Michelle Obama running for president in 2024.
Fearing Another Rise of Trump
These discussions reportedly began after Democrats grew concerned about the rising poll numbers of former President Donald Trump.
According to sources, a “draft Michelle” campaign has quietly gained momentum.
Some Democrats believe that Michelle Obama represents the party’s best chance to defeat Trump in a potential rematch.
Recent polls have shown Michelle Obama with a 48 percent approval rating, while President Joe Biden’s approval rating lags behind at 36 percent.
The source claimed that “party heavyweights” have been testing the waters for support, secretly exploring the viability of a Michelle Obama candidacy.
Switching Alliances if Election in Jeopardy
Former President Barack Obama, who has officially endorsed Joe Biden, is also said to be involved in these discussions.
While he publicly supports Biden, behind closed doors, some suggest he may be more willing to switch allegiances if he believes the election outcome is in jeopardy.
Concerns about Biden’s age and health have fueled speculation that Obama may feel compelled to act.
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
“The Ultimate Race Baiter and America Hater.”
One user wrote, “Another puppet of Obama?”
Another user added, “She is not qualified, nor is she capable. Can the Democrats not come up with a decent candidate? They just want someone who they can control.”
A third user commented, “She and Biden have one common denominator. They both have no experience doing anything.”
A fourth user wrote, “That’s just as scary as Harris and Biden combined. The ultimate race baiter and America Hater.”
