Michelle Obama Will Not Run For President, Says Barack Obama


Michelle Obama doesn't want to be president? Say it isn't so!

On Thursday, President Obama crushed our dreams of FLOTUS ever running for president with six simple, but devastating, words.

While calling into SiriusXM's "Sway in the Morning," the president stated,

Way to stab us in the heart, Mr. President.

He added,

I don't want to take it to the bank -- I don't want to take it anywhere!

With that said, Michelle Obama's life is hers to live. You do you, FLOTUS.

We already knew Obama might not be interested in running for the highest office in the land.

In 2012, she stated,

She definitely has a point, and it's pretty safe to say she will continue to serve as a massive source of inspiration for many people, regardless of what she does in the future.

Still, in recent weeks the first lady has definitely had a lot of people hoping she might run for office one day, after giving a series of powerful speeches on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.

Michelle Obama is unquestionably Clinton's most inspiring and effective surrogate.

The two appeared alongside one another for the first time on Thursday, and Clinton was clearly grateful for the first lady's support.

President Obama has less than 100 days left in office, and it's pretty clear a lot of people are really going to miss having the Obamas in the White House.
