We have heard it all before. There have been rumors about troubles between President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama over and over again. We’ve heard that Michelle is – or was – supposedly a man and the president has had a sexually-interesting, for lack of a better term, past. While the couple doesn’t give the most lovey-dovey appearance in public, which president and his first lady has? Really, none of them have in public. Yet, recent past presidents – other than Bill Clinton, of course – haven’t seemed to admire women as openly as President Obama has, and that could be the reason The Globe Magazine is running with the divorce rumors again, according to a Epoch Times report on Wednesday.
In its November 3, 2014, edition, the cover of Globe Magazine is screaming “Obama sham marriage: It’s over!” The cover also asserts that Mrs. Obama has a Secret Service lover and President Obama lusts for a married Hollywood beauty. The latest report about an alleged-failed marriage of the First Couple says that the sham marriage is over – after 22 years of marriage. The story says that the president has been accused of yet seeking another married Hollywood beauty.
Other publications have also played up on the idea that the Obamas are involved in a less-than-successful marriage, such as the National Enquirer which ran multiple articles targeting the First Couple. The articles were likely inspired by Obama’s fawning publicly last year over Denmark’s prime minister at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela, the former South Africa president. For one thing, you’ve got to give the president credit for having the guts to fawn openly like that right in front of his wife – which indicates he is willing to flirt regardless of the inevitable consequences he faces by the media – and his wife.
As the president continues touring the country for political purposes and his wife continues to make occasional appearances in the name of political endorsements and her first lady initiative concerning child obesity, they appear to be spending a great deal of time apart. If things are really tough in the Obama household right now, that extensive travel that keeps them apart may be what’s best for them. Rumors about a troubled marriage between them dates back to the early 2000s when it was alleged that Mrs. Obama had trouble with the president’s incredibly strong personal drive and political ambition. After that period, she reportedly came to terms with his strong ambition. Of course, it is being reported that Mrs. Obama is being pursuaded to have political amibitions of her own, according to Page Six on Wednesday.
Richard Wolffe, the author of “Renegade,” wrote that the Obamas had settled their differences prior to Barack Obama becoming president. Any troubles after that, it has been said, have been cast aside for the sake of the couple’s phenomenal political career and the two daughters. Yet, the latest from the Globe says that a source told the publication that Mrs. Obama “is mad as hell. She feels violated in front of the whole world.” It even claims that she met with divorce lawyers.
Of course, it isn’t just the non-news publications that reported on the Obamas home situation through time. The major networks, including ABC News, immediately picked up on the story when Michelle Obama referred to herself as a “single mom” just last year. Whether the rumors are true or not about the Obamas eventually ending up in divorce, this is logically the type of press a politician should expect when he and his wife have aligned himselves so very closely with Hollywood – in and out of the White House – don’t you think?
