There have been reports circulating about potential plans to replace Joe Biden with Michelle Obama as the Democrats’ nominee for the 2024 presidential election.
Earlier discussions highlighted concerns from the Obama camp regarding Biden’s electoral viability. It was noted that Obama had been urging Biden to either improve his performance or consider stepping aside from the race.
Furthermore, there were indications of behind-the-scenes efforts by the Obamas to encourage Biden to withdraw from the presidential race.
But now there’s more from Megyn Kelly, talking about a report from NY Post columnist Cindy Adams about the “plan” in the works. Now, again, take all reports with a grain of salt and question anything from “sources” but Adams says she’s being told the timeline.
Kelly said there’s been a reach out to donors that both she and Adams have heard about.

Here’s what Adams says:
Reportedly, and I’m being told, “Obama has polled donors.”
His plan? Around May, Biden announces he’s not running (even mentally). The so-called plot is that come the August convention, Michelle gets nominated.
Mrs. Obama’s team has already sent a survey to heavy-duty donors asking how they’d feel about her as the candidate.
The process has begun.
Kelly also mentioned Michelle Obama’s comments about being terrified for 2024, because leaders were so important and the government does “everything” for us.
What’s going to happen in this next election? I am terrified about what could possibly happen. Because our leaders matter, who we select, who speaks for us, who holds that bully pulpit, it affects us in ways that sometimes I think people take for granted. You know, the fact that people think that government, ‘Ahhh, you know, does it really even do anything?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God. Does government do everything for us, and we cannot take this democracy for granted.’ And sometimes I worry that we do.”
