The Internet is going nuts with a new hashtag begging First Lady Michelle Obama to run in the next presidential election. But, does America deserve her greatness? Discuss inside…
Right after Donald Trump was named president-elect, the Internet was on fire with emotional reactions to the outcome. One topic in particular got major traction.
Americans took to social media to launch the #MichelleObama2020 hashtag, a plea to our First Lady to consider running in the 2020 presidential election. It’s not too much of a long shot since Hillary Clinton followed in her husband’s footsteps and ran for president. And we ALL know how MORE than qualified Michelle Obama is for the gig. But we also know how she has been staunchly against running for any office.
Below are some of the tweets:

It comes as no surprise that folks are begging FLOTUS to consider returning to the White House. She totally changed the game when it comes to that position and has been the epitome of class and just out right fab. Matter of fact, FLOTUS has a super favorable rating of 64%, which is higher than POTUS and president-elect Donald Trump, according to a recent Gallop poll.
But does America deserve her greatness? All of the hate and racist slander she endured as the first African-American First Lady, should she put herself in that type of spotlight again? Honestly, America does even DESERVE to have her again? The disrespect levels were on 1000 and she definitely didn't DESERVE it. Especially when she's one of the most educated First Ladies to ever step foot in the White House.
Also, FLOTUS likely will not be heading back to the White House for a few other reasons. President Barack Obama confirmed Mrs. Obama would never run for office. And he seemed totally sure about it.
“Let me tell you, there are three things that are certain in life: death, taxes and Michelle is not running for president. That, I can tell you,” he said.
Also, FLOTUS has talked about how much she missed the little things, like shopping in Target alone, so we’re sure she's not itching to get back in the White House and its sometimes suffocating bubble. Let her live!
