Michelle Obama was spotted dining out with Hunter Biden’s ex-wife Kathleen in a Washington, DC restaurant. This came days after Kathleen’s ex-father-in-law Joe Biden said that he prefers the former FLOTUS to be his running mate in the 2020 elections.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama dined out with a group of five others which included Kathleen Biden on Wednesday night, the New York Post reported. The group met at the recently opened Brasserie Liberté in Georgetown.

Obama, Biden and their friends dined for around three hours. The former FLOTUS was seen wearing a casual chic getup consisting of jeans paired with a black button-down shirt.

While Michelle Obama was recently in the headlines over Joe Biden’s statements about wanting her to be his vice president, Michelle and Kathleen likely met just to catch up. The two became friends with Barack Obama and Joe Biden became running mates in the 2008 presidential elections.

Michelle and Kathleen would spend time together going on family trips and to SoulCycle. The former FLOTUS was Kathleen’s go-to person for support during her split with her husband Hunter Biden.

Hunter Biden married Kathleen Biden Buhle in 1993 and they have three children - Naomi, Finnegan, and Maisy – before they separated in 2015 and eventually divorced in 2017. Hunter has since been linked to Hallie Biden, his brother’s widow, former stripper Lunden Roberts, and his current wife, Melissa Cohen Biden, according to Fox Business.

Recently, Michelle Obama was in the headlines when Hunter’s father, Joe Biden, name her as his favored running mate. “I sure would like Michelle to be the Vice President,” Biden answered a question from the audience at a campaign stop in Muscatine, Iowa.

If Michelle agrees to become the vice-presidential candidate, it would a first in American politics. There has never been a case where a former First Lady ran for a vice-presidential post.

Aside from having Michelle onboard his administration as vice president, Biden also added that he’d nominate former President Barack Obama for the Supreme Court. “Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it. He’d be a great Supreme Court justice,” Biden said.
