Ramaswamy Says Dems Might Make Michelle Obama Presidential Candidate

Biotech executive Vivek Ramaswamy said this weekend that President Joe Biden might be replaced by former First Lady Michelle Obama ahead of the 2024 presidential election. Speaking to Fox News, the former GOP presidential candidate reinforced the belief that Biden might end up not being the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate after Special Counsel Robert Hur’s recently released report that stated that the president’s memory is significantly limited.

Suggesting that the report would be the perfect opportunity for Dems to cast Biden aside, Ramaswamy said that a main problem with that would be Vice President Kamala Harris’ standing to fill Biden’s shoes.

“The main obstacle stopping the Democratic Party is they have a Kamala Harris problem, which is to say that if they do sideline Biden, the natural person normally that would be the nominee, could be the vice president of that same sitting president,” he said. “But that vice president is unable, I think, to effectively carry forward that job. She didn’t make it to the Iowa caucus in the year that she ran, right, even and within her own party, let alone an issue with broader popularity in the country.”

He then went on to explain that Democrats will look bad if they decide to not let Harris naturally fill Biden’s role as the party’s identity is tied to the race and gender identity politics. Obama, he believes, is an easy solution that would let the party maintain its reputation will putting another person out as presidential candidate.

“And I do think Michelle Obama offers them a convenient path out of that problem, somebody who checks the boxes that they need to have checked per their own ideology, while also selecting an alternative to Biden that they may view as more palatable in a general election. And I think that it should not be shocking to see someone like Michelle Obama take the role of the nomination,” Ramaswamy stated.

“And I think that it should not be shocking to see someone like Michelle Obama take the role of the nomination. So I think that we’re seeing a general trend towards what I predicted . . . which is that they would move Biden out of the way. And I think this is one more step in that direction,” he added.

Ramaswamy’s remarks come amid heightened concerns for Biden’s eligibility for president after Hur’s report revealed his cognitive decline in a week in which he made two hilarious gaffes claiming to have seen dead leaders recently.
