Far left filmmaker and activist Michael Moore is not very confident in the Democrats’ chances in 2020.
During an interview on MSNBC on Thursday, he said that Michelle Obama is the only person who could win.

Michael Moore urges Michelle Obama to run against Trump
Filmmaker Michael Moore said in a new interview that there is only one candidate up to the challenge to “crush” President Trump in 2020, “and her last name rhymes with Obama.”
“In fact, it is Obama — Michelle Obama,” Moore said on MSNBC. “Everybody watching this right now knows she is a beloved American and she would go in there and she would beat him.”
Moore said it is not enough to have a Democratic candidate who will defeat Trump, noting that his 2016 Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, won 3 million more votes nationwide.
“The only way to remove Trump is to crush Trump. And that’s the question that has to be asked, who can crush Trump? Who’s the street fighter?” Moore said.
He said four of the Democratic presidential candidates — former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) — could beat Trump. But he said that is not enough.
Obama, he said, would be able to crush Trump.

Mfw when Michael Moore does a great 6 minute rant about 2020, praises Bernie & his debate performance, then out of nowhere says the *only* person who can win is Michelle Obama. pic.twitter.com/CKZ7zzSppf

The image I have in my mind of Michelle Obama's face if Michael Moore showed up on her doorstep and asked her to run for president is just priceless. 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/pBKNiG2Va0

She doesn’t seem very interested in running for office.
She has an amazing life, why would she give that up?
