(FreedomJournal.Org)- Michelle Obama might just be the key presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden needs to win over young and black voters. Despite being President Barack Obama’s vice president, Biden has failed to energize the young base in the Democratic party that was won over by socialist Bernie Sanders.
Biden admitted recently that he would like former First Lady Michelle Obama to be his running mate, but knew she wouldn’t accept the offer.
According to the New York Post, Michelle might be giving Biden the boost he needs, through comments made in an upcoming Netflix documentary about her. According to the New York Post, Michelle says that black voters not turning out in the 2016 election was a “slap in the face.”
“It takes some energy to go high, and we were exhausted from it…when you’re the first black anything,” she said when talking about her and her husband’s efforts to help Hillary Clinton win the 2016 presidential election.
“You know, the day I left the White House, it was painful to sit on that stage, and then a lot of our folks didn’t vote – it was almost a slap in the face,” she said.
“It wasn’t just in this election, but every midterm, every time Barack didn’t get the Congress he needed, that was because our folks didn’t show up. After all that work, they couldn’t be bothered to vote at all. That’s my trauma,” she added.
So shaming is the latest Democratic tactic to get people to vote for them?
Michelle assumed that every black American who failed to show up to vote in 2016 would have automatically voted for Hillary Clinton. She failed to recognize the fact that many simply weren’t encouraged or motivated to get out and vote because Clinton was a hugely flawed candidate.
In the documentary, Michelle also makes it clear that she has no intention of returning to politics.
“Now we’re out of the White House, not to be viewed, judges, and parcelled by every other person on the planet – yeah, it’s better, it’s absolutely freeing,” she said. “Being the first lady has been the greatest honor of my life. But how many people are in that position where the entire attention of everything is you, every gesture you make, every blink of an eye is being analyzed?”
She added, “Barack and I are not interested in being at the forefront forever.”
Looks like Sleepy Joe needs a new tactic to win over the Obama voters!
