Activist and filmmaker Michael Moore has a three-part plan for Democrats to "crush" Pres. Trump in the 2020 election. Part of that plan? Michelle Obama running for president.

I’ll always have a soft spot for Michael Moore, because he reminds me of the best and the worst of the big, well-meaning, blue-collar doofuses I grew up among. On the one hand, he means well! He has a big heart, and it’s in the right place (mostly)! On the other… Dude, Michelle Obama is not your mother, your girlfriend, or your maid.
We’re in a mess, and dumb “populists” like you who didn’t even realize your own biases played no small part in getting us it. YOU get to start the massive job of cleaning it up. And maybe if you’re working hard enough, earnestly enough, the women in your life — and those ‘black friends’ you’re so proud of knowing — can find a space to help you without (also, again) taking on the thankless task of fixing up what’s gotten broken!
Men consistently love the "idea" of women but never the reality. It's one, long extended edition of THE GREAT GATSBY. https://t.co/xgnWfp4D6G

And while we’re on the topic:
When commentators say Obama won by charisma and not a plan, that’s a faulty revisionist history. The country was in a mess & he brought a plan, a vision & moral convictions combined w/ an organizer’s mentality to mobilize & fight In every state, even the South.
