The first lady made another insipid appearance on CBS’s “Late Night with David Letterman” Thursday, during which she joked that she may run for president.
Letterman voiced his support. Viewers were aghast.
“I’m retiring in a few weeks,” Letterman told Michelle Obama during her fifth and final appearance on the show.
“No kidding,” Obama replied. Letterman announced his retirement more than a year ago.
“And I know that your time at the White House, in a couple of years, same sort of thing,” he continued. “You won’t be retiring though. But do you ever glimpse down that far down the road?”
“What, like when I’m going to be running for president or anything?” Obama said.
“That’s something to consider,” Letterman said.
Then the conversation took a weird turn, with the first lady offering to help with Letterman’s child-rearing responsibilities.
“I would help you — raise your children,” she said. “I could help you through those dark times.”
“That’s both delightful and pathetic,” said Letterman.
A collective groan could be heard throughout the nation, and Twitter users voiced their concerns of another Obama presidency on social media.

Finally, one tweep, recalling a comment made by the late Joan Rivers, observed:
@weeklystandard she would be the first transgendered president.
