Stephen A. Smith says Michelle Obama would win ‘hands down’ IF she runs against Trump

ESPN host Stephen A. Smith believes that former First Lady Michelle Obama would easily win the presidency if she ran for office this year.

Appearing Monday on retired NBA player Kevin Garnett’s podcast, he was asked how close he believes that the United States is to having its first female president.

Listen to his answer below:

He first replied with a spiel after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who almost became president before getting walloped by former President Donald Trump in the 2016 race.

Like a typical leftist, Smith blamed that loss on disgraced then-FBI Director James Comey.

“If the FBI director at the time, James Comey, hadn’t come in at the last minute with some shit about Hillary and emails, and Hillary — I believe — had campaigned in Wisconsin and Philadelphia in the waning days before the election, I think you would’ve had a female president in 2016… I think that she was that close,” he said.

He then broached Obama.

“And I think that Michelle Obama would win right now if she were to run,” he said. “I think that Michelle Obama would hands down be the next president of the United State if she were to run against Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee. Now, that obviously is not gonna happen. She doesn’t seem to have an interest.”

That hasn’t stopped a plethora of folks from speculating on the matter and claiming Obama will in fact run.

Take former presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy. After the release of special counsel Robert K. Hur’s report in February, and after an especially disastrous press conference for Biden, Ramaswamy predicted on Fox News that Obama would be the nominee.

“I think the number one takeaway is this: Joe Biden will not be the nominee,” he said. “I said this last year. People dismissed it as some type of conspiracy theory. Today I think it became that much more obvious.”

As evidence, he cited special counsel Hur’s conclusion that Biden did commit a crime in keeping classified documents with him after leaving office but is too senile to be prosecuted.

“Play this out: Biden’s own DOJ and special counsel is effectively releasing a report that undermines the case for him to actually be a candidate for the U.S. presidency, right as Biden’s poll numbers are cratering,” Ramaswamy noted.

“We have to do the math, skate to where the puck is going, not fall for the deflection. But I do think what they’re planning for is to sideline Biden as the nominee, trot in a different puppet instead. That’s the most significant takeaway from tonight,” he added.

Who exactly? Obama!

“Biden will not be the Democratic nominee. Get ready for Michelle Obama,” he tweeted at the time.

A month prior to Ramaswamy saying that, a New York Post gossip columnist went viral for also suggesting Obama may run for president.

According to gossip columnist Cindy Adams, the signs of Obama’s potential candidacy were all there in plain sight for people to see.

“Biden won’t debate. Can’t. Our codger-in-chief can’t even read the prewritten script in front of him fast enough to pronounce the words. So, forget him — which most of us already have,” Adams wrote for the Post.

“Coming back now — Obama. Not him. HER! We’ve heard this drumbeat for a while. Now it’s louder. Plans are to grab Michelle for the Democratic presidency choice. Making the music is Barack the orchestra leader,” she added.

“Michelle says she’s ‘terrified’ Trump will win,” Adams continued in her column. “No casual burp. Was programmed. She’s sent a survey to Dem biggies asking their feelings about her candidacy.”

“Obama’s quietly angling for Joe to go. He’s weaseled up to this for a few weeks. Mouths aren’t talking. But mouths are knowing,” she added.

Note that there had been no public reports about Obama surveying Dems about her potential candidacy.

Nevertheless, Adams continued her column by then stunningly claiming that Obama had admitted she intended to run as recently as last summer and that the Obamas — including former President Barack Obama — were encouraging President Joe Biden to drop out.

“Over one year ago, summer of 2022, she was in NYC meeting several big hedge CEOs, and said, ‘I am running, and I am asking for your support,’” Adams alleged. “The Obamas are now nudging to force SloMo Joe to go. Drop out. It’s like who else is there?”

“A Joe flop-out offers probability Michelle could wiggle in. Obama’s negotiating to make that happen. Pay attention to them gurgling and burbling about the election. About concern over Joe’s crappy polling, about bad Trump, about everything but Bad Bad LeRoy Brown,” she continued.
