President Joe Biden could remain in power to line up a shock White House bid for Michelle Obama, it has been claimed.
Biden is under immense pressure after a classified documents investigation concluded with Special Counsel Robert Hur saying the President wilfully retained sensitive material, but wouldn’t be charged as a jury would see Biden as an “elderly man” with “limited memory.”
The President’s public gaffes have been a repeated talking point, and now many are questioning if the 81-year-old is fit for office.
Despite this, the Democrats are pushing in with Biden as their nominee for the 2024 US elections.
As the Daily Mail reports, Biden could have a trick up his sleeve.

He told Fox News: “The main obstacle stopping the Democratic Party is they have a Kamala Harris problem, which is to say that if they do sideline Biden, the natural person normally that would be the nominee, could be the vice president of that same sitting president.
“But that vice president is unable, I think, to effectively carry forward that job. She didn’t make it to the Iowa caucus in the year that she ran, right, even and within her own party, let alone an issue with broader popularity in the country.
“If race and gender are your basis for selecting someone for a job, and the identity of your party is tied to that temple of identity politics, then they will risk looking hypocritical if they sideline her after they sideline Biden.
“And I do think Michelle Obama offers them a convenient path out of that problem, somebody who checks the boxes that they need to have checked per their own ideology, while also selecting an alternative to Biden that they may view as more palatable in a general election.
“It’s looking increasingly like it’s not going to be Biden as the nominee. And I think that it should not be shocking to see someone like Michelle Obama take the role of the nomination.”
Vice President Harris said on Monday that she is “ready” to lead the country if called upon.
She told the Wall Street Journal: “I am ready to serve. There’s no question about that.”
