Is Michelle Obama's book tour a primer for a presidential run in 2020?

Former first lady Michelle Obama will launch her book tour for her memoir “Becoming” in November.

The tour events will be held at venues with capacities of 15,000 and higher, such as American Airlines Center in Dallas, with tickets that cost as much as $3,000.

“Mrs. Obama wanted to make her tour as accessible as possible,” explained Tara Traub, senior vice president of the tour company.

"To put this into perspective, VIP tickets to Beyoncé and JAY-Z on their last tour were $1,000," said Pat Gray, who was filling in for Glenn on Tuesday's episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

"I'm sorry, I thought [the Obamas] were the income and equality people. I thought they were all about the little guy," he continued. "The hypocrisy just continues to be piled on and the left just continues to worship them. Nothing these two can do is wrong ever."

Pat went on to question whether Michelle Obama will consider a presidential run in 2020 if her book tour proves to be a smashing success.

"If she still has that kind of juice to sell out these arenas, you know she's running for office," Pat said. "Now, if she were to run in 2020 against the president, I think you've got a battle there ... she presents a real challenge I think."
