According to some fresh reports in the media, Michelle Obama allegedly told her husband, Barack Obama, to “get out” of the White House after he “hit” on an engaged woman while voting in Chicago recently.
The incident with the woman, Aia Cooper, was widely reported by the press as more of jokey type thing than something really serious, as Obama was clearly just joshing with the woman, and her fiancé in a tight and awkward situation.
As reported by numerous outlets, including the Inquisitr, Cooper’s fiancé walked past the president as he voted next to the booth where Aia was casting her vote, and said to him, “don’t touch my girlfriend.”
Obama said at the time, “There’s an example of a brother just embarrassing me for no reason, just for no reason whatsoever.”
For most people, that was the end of the incident, which seemed, if anything, to show the human and light-hearted side of Barack Obama. But according to some reports this weekend, Michelle just isn’t happy about the Chicago incident, no matter how “jokey” Barack was being.
While it’s best not to give too much credence to tabloid reports, with anonymous or alleged “sources,” this isn’t the first time there have been allegations flying about Barack Obama’s conduct around women.
Let’s not forget the reports from last year, when the president was spotted openly flirting with Danish prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s funeral, as reported by the New York Daily News, earning a reputation for himself as a bit of a player.
Crossmap.com reported on October 28 that according to Edward Klein’s new tell-all book entitled Blood Feud, the Obama marriage is nothing but a pretense, and not all is peachy “back at the Obama ranch.”
In the book, which was released earlier this summer, the author claims that Michelle and Barack had been sleeping in different beds for a period of time, and were also receiving advice from marriage counselors, as well as both allegedly being on anti-depressants.
In Klein’s words, “Although there was no question that Barack Obama loved his wife, their relationship was fraught with tension. To begin with, Michelle never let him forget that it was she, not he, who had made all the sacrifices in the marriage. And that she’d had to accommodate to a life that was not what she envisioned for herself.”
It remains to be seen whether or not the reports of a rift between Michelle and Barack Obama hold any truth to them, as the media, especially the tabloid press, watch closely for any developments behind the closed doors of the White House.
