The prospects of the 2024 election is keeping Michelle Obama up at night, according to an interview released on Monday. Speaking on “On Purpose” podcast, she shared that she is “terrified” about the possibilities of the presidential election scheduled for November.

According to her, her fears are borne out of the realization of the importance of the leader the nation selects to speak for the people and take charge.

“It affects us in ways that sometimes I think people take for granted,” she stated.

She went on to emphasize the importance of government by tearing down beliefs that the government does not do anything for the people. Correcting that notion, she said, “Oh my God, does the government do everything for us,” calling for the realization of the importance of democracy.

Later in the interview, Michelle said some things that seemed to be condemnation of former President Donald Trump. While she does not name him, she referred to a “childish leadership” “where someone is just base and vulgar and cynical in a leadership position.”

Michelle’s remarks come after speculations that she might launch a presidential campaign for this year, especially if Biden quits his reelection bid. However, she dispelled the rumors during a sit-down with Oprah Winfrey in April last year.

When asked directly if she will ever run for president, she said she has never been interested in politics and has never felt like she wanted to run for the country’s top position.

According to her, politics is hard and not for her, as she explained that she performs more effectively outside of politics.

Politics “is not in my soul. Service is in my soul,” she explained at the time.

Michelle’s Monday-released interview begs curiosity given her husband, former President Barack Obama, is reportedly concerned about the possibility of Trump winning the election.

According to an anonymous source for the Wall Street Journal, Obama thinks Democrats could lose in November, as he is not confident in President Joe Biden’s chances of winning the election.
