In an interview with Yahoo! Eric Holder said some things that would lead you to believe he could be on the 2020 ballet for President of the United States. Some may say well he has no political experience, working for the President doesn’t necessarily qualify you to be President. I would say neither does starting a fake University and scamming people out of thousands of dollars but we are being forced to sit back and watch President Cheeto destroy this country.

“Up to now, I have been more behind-the-scenes,” Holder said. “But that’s about to change. I have a certain status as the former attorney general. A certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general. There’s a justified perception that I’m close to President [Barack] Obama. So I want to use whatever skills I have, whatever notoriety I have, to be effective in opposing things that are, at the end of the day, just bad for the country.

“Now is the time to be more visible,” Holder continued. “Now is the time to be heard.”

“I thought, frankly, along with everybody else, that after the election, with Hillary Clinton as president, I could walk off the field,” he told Yahoo! “So when she didn’t win, I thought, ‘We’ll have to see how this plays out.’ But it became clear relatively soon—and certainly sooner than I expected—that I had to get back on the field and be in effective opposition.”

A source close to Holder told Yahoo! Holder is considering running for President but Holder himself did not confirm or deny it. Only time will tell but at this point I’m sure a lot of us would take Holder over Cheeto anyday!
