If you wasn’t to believe the National Enquirer, the First Lady Michelle Obama has had enough of President Barack and wants a divorce.
Having once upon a time worked for a tabloid whose owner published other tabloids that were known to be more fiction than truth, you can take or leave the report. The National Enquirer is about as reliable as The New York Times’ reportage on Israel.
But when the liberal and more reliable, if not biased, Nation reports the Enquirer’s “scoop,” then there might be some fire behind the smoke.
If genes and a child’s environment mean anything, and psychologists say they do, then President Barack Obama has a lot to rely on – his mother divorced the President’s father.
And if Barak’s half-brother Mark Obama Ndesandjo has it right, their father was a drunk who beat his wife.
President Obama certainly does not do that, although there are more than few million Americans who would swear on a stack of Bibles he is drunk with power and has beat the H out of the voters.
The Enquirer flatly stated that the Obamas’ family life is a disaster, that the First lady sleeps in a separate bedroom and is getting ready to move the Commander in Chief’s personal belongings and clothes out of their million-dollar house in Chicago.
He may think he is running the country, but it appears she is in charge.
“The smart money says the marriage is doomed,” a source close to the President was quoted as saying. “Barack and Michelle have had a rocky go for years and mainly stayed together for their daughters and his political career. But now Michelle is mad as hell. She feels violated in front of the whole world. She’s met with divorce lawyers and told Barack that she wants a life apart from him. Michelle will stay in the White House for the rest of Barack’s term for appearances’ sake, but she made it clear they’ll be leading separate lives.”
The straw that supposedly broke the camel’s back was Barack’s openly acting a bit too friendly with Denmark’s prime minister and dashingly beautiful Helle Thorning-Schmidt at a solemn memorial service for Nelson Mandela, even though Michelle was sitting right beside him,.
At one point, he reportedly caressed her shoulder, prompting a bombardment of angry phone calls and e-mails to the White House.
The New York Daily News reported the incident this way: “President Obama was caught committing a funeral faux pas — snapping a selfie with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and British PM David Cameron during Nelson Mandela’s memorial service Tuesday.
“The threesome smiled as the Scandinavian beauty held her smartphone out to capture the moment but Michelle Obama sat at a distance, as if in disapproval of the digital display.”
Every time a male political leaders smiles at a female political leader does not mean he has romance in mind, and the story may be all a bunch of tabloidy stuff that sells newspapers.
Michelle supposedly went bananas after the Mandela memorial service, and when they returned to the White House, witnesses allegedly heard her say, make that scream, “I’ve had enough”.
Either way, a lot of Americans also have had enough.
