Rumors are swirling about what the Obamas have planned for after they leave the White House in 2016, and if one of them is true, we could all be in huge trouble.
Though she has repeatedly denied that she plans to one day run for office, new reports are saying that first lady Michelle Obama is planning to run for congress in California in 2018. CNN revealed that Michelle may be eyeing the seat of Diane Feinstein (D-CA), who was asked about it during an interview:
Candy Crowley: I cannot let you go, senator, without asking about an article I read that posited that Michelle Obama would like to run for the Senate in California, and that she has her eye on your seat in 2018 because the feeling is that you may retire at that point. And so I thought I’d get your reaction to that story.
Diane Feinstein: Oh, did you? Ha, ha. Well, I have no idea what I’m going to be doing in 2018. That’s four years from now, and that’s one of the nice things of a six-year term. I’ve served two years of my term and you know, I’ll make a decision in due time. I’m flattered, if that should be true. Somehow I do not believe it is true, but I would be flattered if it were.
These rumors have been circulating for awhile now, and it’s very possible that Obama and his minions are forcing Feinstein out so that Michelle can get a seat in congress. Some have questioned why Michelle would choose to run in California, but upon further examination, it’s clear why she’d pick that state.
“Hawaii is too remote,” reported Orb Magazine. “Illinois is a cesspool of political corruption which they prefer to avoid, and New York, which they love, is too dense with Clintons and Clinton acolytes. They have many friends in Los Angeles, dating back to Barack’s student days at Occidental College, when he first left Hawaii.”
If Michelle Obama somehow finds her way to political office, I may need to actually move to Canada…
