suggests Obama’s 20-year marriage is little more than a sham, akin to the loveless union
of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
According to the ENQUIRER
, Michelle has met with divorce lawyers three times, and had official papers created that would make the split official.
“Barack and Michelle put on a good show when they’re out in public, but as soon as the cameras are off they are at each other’s throats,” revealed a Washington insider, as quoted in the ENQUIRER.
“They make a lot of political capital about how close they are and how important their marriage is to them – but the reality is that it’s been a sham for a long time.”
Their marriage has been troubled as far back as 2000, when the Obamas were living in Chicago. A “distraught” Michelle had divorce papers prepared after Obama failed to win a House seat, according to the report.
Ed Klein, in his best-selling book “The Amateur
,” wrote that Michelle was furious that the future commander-in-chief had entered the race against her wishes. Mrs. Obama accused him of putting at risk their “stable and secure future.”
According to an insider” as quoted by the ENQUIRER
, “Michelle didn’t want all the attention and she didn’t want to raise their children under such magnified scrutiny.” But she was eventually persuaded to go along with Barack and support the campaign.”
Meanwhile, last year, Michelle secretly consulted with a divorce lawyer “because she was at her wits’ end over the marriage,” according to the ENQUIRER.
The magazine quotes “insiders” as saying Michelle was taken aback by revelations over her wasting taxpayer dollars on a luxurious vacation and wanted to return to Chicago.
Contrary to public statements, Michelle wanted to take their daughters Malia, 14 and Sasha, 11, back to the windy city where they could enjoy a “normal life.”
“She was also under public attack for wasting taxpayer dollars on her lavish vacation and spending sprees – and she just couldn’t take another minute living in the fishbowl,” a Washington, D.C., source told The ENQUIRER.
More recently, still another source told the ENQUIRER that “Michelle blew up just days after the couple’s 20th wedding anniversary, which fell the same day as the president’s disastrous performance in the first debate against Mitt Romney on Oct. 3.”
Upon being told Barack was flying to Hollywood on a fundraising trip, Michelle warned her husband to stay away from “Scandal” beauty Kerry Washington – a familiar face on Team Obama – “or their marriage was definitely over,” according to the ENQUIRER.
