And just like that, the hopes and dreams of Michael Moore and his fellow Democrats went up in flames.
“Just between us,” 12-year-old journalist Hilde Lysiak began. “If you thought the country needed you and you thought you could really help our nation, is there even a one percent chance you’d consider running?”
“Just between us, and the readers of this magazine — there’s zero chance,” Mrs. Obama replied.
“There are so many ways to improve this country and build a better world, and I keep doing plenty of them, from working with young people to helping families lead healthier lives. But sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office will never be one of them. It’s just not for me.”

Moore’s Dreams Crushed
The comments come just one day after Moore, the portly filmmaker, insisted the only person who could “crush” President Trump would be Michelle Obama.
“The only way to remove Trump is to crush Trump,” he said in an interview with MSNBC. “And that’s the question that has to be asked, who can crush Trump? Who’s the street fighter?”
“In fact, it is Obama – Michelle Obama.”
Moore’s comments were little more than fantasy, as the former First Lady has repeatedly said she has no interest in running for President. Not that she doesn’t have the qualifications in her mind.
In fact, it’s not that she couldn’t win the presidency, it’s that she just doesn’t want it.
“I have never had the passion for politics,” she said during a speech at the 39th annual Simmons Leadership Conference last year.
“Just because I gave a good speech, I’m smart and intelligent doesn’t mean I should be the next president,” she bragged.
Besides, why would she want that gig when she’s claimed that after “working really hard for this country,” there were still people “who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color.”
In other words, why would she want to ‘work’ for those racist Americans again?
As for ‘ways to improve this country and build a better world’ – her ideas on this are even more frightening than the prospect of an Obama in the White House again.
Mrs. Obama has, on multiple occasions, declared it would be a good investment for the country to “invest in creating thousands of ‘me’s.'”

Yikes. Hard pass.
“Whatever comes next, I hope that I embrace new opportunities with open arms,” Obama concluded in ‘The National’ interview.
As long as it’s not in the Oval office – go for it.
