The popular podcast host Joe Rogan is speaking out this week to predict that the former First Lady Michelle Obama would beat Donald Trump if she decides to run for president in 2024.
Daily Mail reported that Rogan predicted that the only thing that could stop Obama from winning would be if she “showed any support for lockdowns and mandates and all this craziness that’s going on.”
“She’s great, she’s articulate, she’s intelligent, she’s the wife of the best President that we have had in our lifetime … she can win,” Rogan said.
Rogan went on to joke that Obama could team up with Vice President Kamala Harris for a “double dose of diversity.” He added that a Republican “super team” lining up against the pair would be “Trump and [Florida Governor Ron] DeSantis together.”
“They have to make a super team. That’s the only way they win,” Rogan said.
“The only thing that would stop her is if she bought into some of these policies that are destroying businesses in America that are making people scared,” Rogan continued, referring to Obama. “If she somehow or another supported or showed any support for lockdowns and mandates and all this craziness that’s going on.”
This comes one week after President Joe Biden claimed that he will run again in 2024 if he’s fit enough to do so.
“I’m a great respecter of fate. Fate has intervened in my life many, many times,” Biden said. “If I’m in the health I’m in now – I’m in good health – then, in fact, I would run again.”
When asked if he would run for reelection if it meant taking on Trump again, Biden laughed and said, “You’re trying to tempt me now.”
“That would increase the prospect of running,” he added.
Obama has repeatedly said that she does not want to run for president because she is “not interested in politics.”
“The reason why I don’t want to run for president — and I can’t speak for Oprah [Winfrey] — but my sense is that, first of all, you have to want the job,” Obama said in 2018, according to Today, referring to rumors that Oprah Winfrey would run. “And you can’t just say, ‘Well, you’re a woman, run.’ We just can’t find the women we like and ask them to do it, because there are millions of women who are inclined and do have the passion for politics.”
“I’ve never had the passion for politics,” she added. “I just happened to be married to somebody who has the passion for politics, and he drug me kicking and screaming into the arena.”
