The outcome of the recent presidential election has left many Americans feeling hopeless, helpless and disenfranchised, but that hasn’t stopped them from looking to the 2020 election. Social media was ablaze recently with pleas for current FLOTUS Michelle Obama to run for president in 2020. In fact, even during Hillary Clinton’s presidential run, there were rumblings that Michelle Obama should run on the Democratic ticket instead.

Mrs. Obama was a significant force in campaigning for Clinton, especially in the last months of her campaign. She was also time enough for Trump, shutting him down several times without ever mentioning him by name.

If you have been on social media for the last 48 hours, the majority of trending topics are focused on Donald Trump’s win, with most topics trending negatively. However, today, there was a bright spot involving our lovely FLOTUS and the public’s hopeful cry that she run for the presidency.

It would be just desserts that a Black woman replaced that White man in the next presidential election.

Hillary Clinton didn’t break through that highest of glass ceilings and become the first female president of the United States, but many people [on social media] and beyond are calling for Michelle Obama to take on that challenge.

Some social media reactions:

Michelle Obama certainly has our vote if she does indeed decide on a 2020 presidential run. Having already demonstrated that she has the intelligence, experience, poise and leadership skills that it takes to rally the country together, we couldn’t think of a better candidate. Here’s to hoping!
