The Obamas' Family Life Is Falling ApartBarack Obama, Features, Michelle Obama, Photos, USA Monday, December 30, 2013
"The smart money says the marriage is doomed," a source close to the President said.
"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."
Michelle was left furious after her husband was photographed brazenly flirting with Denmark’s female prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, while Michelle was sitting right beside him during the service for former South African president Nelson Mandela.
"Barack already had enough headaches with his public approval rating plummeting after the disastrous rollout of his 'Obamacare' health plan. Now he’s walked smack into the worst marital crisis of his life," said the White House insider.
His female voters have bombarded the White House with letters, phone calls and emails expressing sympathy for the first lady and anger at the President.
Michelle reserved her fury until they were back in their private quarters in the White House. Then she went ballistic behind closed doors and a number of witnesses heard her screaming "I’ve had enough."
Barack has humiliated Michelle before, but this incident was played out on the world stage. Practically everybody on the planet saw what he did and realized that the President has absolutely no respect for his wife.
Now that the President has embarrassed his First Lady in the eyes of the whole world, he’s going to pay a big, big price. Michelle has said she wants a huge chunk of his net worth. If the couple divorces, Obama will be left with nothing.
