The Internet Is Pleading With FLOTUS to Run for POTUS in 2020
While everyone remains in shock about the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election, some are already looking toward the future. While we can’t all laugh about what we fear might happen in the next four years (like Demi Lovato tried to do with her failed election night joke), we definitely need to gather the resources to make sure that this kind of election never happens again. That’s why the people of The Internet are hopefully looking to current FLOTUS and HBIC Michelle Obama and begging her to run for President in 2020.
While both she and President Obama have said that Michelle has absolutely zero desire to be back in the White House, we’re hoping enough people begging will change her tune.
Some people joked:
If Michelle Obama runs for president in 2020 I'll eat all the whole grain stuff she wants 👏🏻

Michelle Obama for next president with Beyonce as VP.
They'd be unstoppable.

(Could you imagine Bey as the VEEP?)
Others just simply pleaded with FLOTUS:

@MichelleObama please run for president 2020. America needs help from the cheeto dude!

While many tried to rain on our dream parade, and pointed out that Michelle has no desire to be part of politics:
I've never especially gotten the impression that Michelle Obama likes being first lady too much, let alone wants to be president someday.

Michelle Obama is not running for president in 2020, so y'all can give it up.

We don’t know what the next four years will hold, nor who will even run in the next election, but we do know it would be amazing if Michelle were to actually run.
