“It’s not enough just to beat Trump. The only way to remove Trump is to crush Trump,” left-wing movie maker Michael Moore stated in an appearance on MSNBC after the Democrat debate before going on to declare that,
“If the election were held today, there is one person that would crush Trump, and she hasn’t announced yet, and her last name rhymes with Obama. In fact, it is Obama – Michelle Obama!”
As if we need Obama Round 2!

Take a look at how people are responding to this on Twitter:
Fox News had the following to say about Moore's call for Michelle Obama to run:
Appearing on MSNBC's post-debate coverage, the "Fahrenheit 9/11" director argued that only a "beloved" American who is a "street fighter" can face off against the president, but expressed concern that it's "not enough."
"We have to have a candidate who is beloved by the American people and who is outside the political inner circle, somebody who's not a politician, somebody who's gonna win," Moore told the panel.
"I think, in my humble opinion, four of these candidates running could beat Trump; Bernie [Sanders], [former Vice President Joe] Biden, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren. They could beat him, but Hillary beat him. It's not enough just to beat Trump."
Moore then suggested someone who wasn't among the over 20 candidates currently running in the Democratic field.
"The only way to remove Trump is to crush Trump and that's the question that has to be asked -- who can crush Trump? Who's the street fighter?" Moore asked.
"Frankly, I think, there's a person that can do this if the election were held today, there is one person that would crush Trump and she hasn't announced yet and her last name rhymes with Obama. In fact, it is Obama. Michelle Obama."
The Daily Caller also commented:
Filmmaker Michael Moore said former first lady Michelle Obama is the one person who could “crush” President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
Moore urged Obama to run for president on MSNBC following a presidential debate Wednesday evening. He said Trump has to be crushed, because it’s not enough to beat him.
“The only way to remove Trump is to crush Trump,” Moore said. “And that’s the question that has to be asked. Who can crush Trump? Who’s the street fighter? … There is one person that would crush Trump — and she hasn’t announced yet. And her last name rhymes with Obama. In fact, it is Obama — Michelle Obama.”
