I’ve heard things before about Michelle Obama keeping a close eye on her husband Barack Obama, and even banning certain beautiful young actresses from the White House, but these claims are to the extreme. However, after all of JFK’s affairs and seeing that mini-series, I don’t blame her! Check out the scandalous details here…
MailOnline — Michelle Obama orders women close to her husband to be watched in case he cheats on her like John F Kennedy did to his wife, a new book claims. The First Lady is supposedly ‘unusually jealous’ and has so little trust in Barack Obama that she turns up unannounced during the day to see what he is doing.
She also objected to her husband’s close relationship to U.S. chat show queen Oprah Winfrey – and shunned her because she ‘hates fat people’. The explosive claims are likely to feed the image of Mrs Obama as an ‘angry black woman’, a label she herself dismissed earlier this year. They could also reopen questions about the Obama’s marriage of 20 years as in the past they reportedly rowed a lot and came close to splitting up.
In ‘The Amateur’, American author Edward Klein’s book about Mr Obama’s first term, he claims that Mrs Obama’s ‘obsessive’ behaviour is the talk of the White House.
Portions of the book that were released to The New York Post tells of quotes from a source close to Miss Winfrey as saying:
‘Michelle is very jealous, I would say unusually so.
Most people after years of marriage have trust and don’t follow their husbands around and check on them. Michelle doesn’t seem to trust Barack at all. She insists on knowing his every movement and drops in on him at all kinds of odd times.
Michelle makes it clear to her inner circle…that she wants women around Barack watched and wants info about who he has an eye for and gets touchy with. The thing is, she knows, like everybody, about JFK’s shenanigans, and she thinks, hey, JFK was young and good looking like my guy.’
By the time he was assassinated in 1963 Mr Kennedy had become as famous for his extra marital liaisons as he was for being President. In her memoir former White House intern Mimi Alford recalled how Mr Kennedy eyed her up in the White House pool then had sex with her in the bedroom he shared with his wife. Mr Kennedy also supposedly had sex with Marlene Dietrich in the Oval office and famously romanced Marilyn Monroe – amongst many others.
In ‘The Amateur’ Mr Klein claims that relations between Miss Winfrey and Mrs Obama took a nosedive over the chat show host’s close relationship with Mr Obama.The book claims that in the weeks after the 2008 U.S. election victory Mr Obama gave Miss Winfrey’s advice ‘priority over Michelle’s’
Mr Klein writes:
‘When she (Winfrey) phoned, he dropped everything and took her call. They huddled over strategy. Of all of Obama’s unofficial White House advisers, Oprah had unparalleled access, input, influence, and power.’
Mr Klein quotes a White House insider who says that Mrs Obama was ‘furious’ about her husband’s late night phone calls to Miss Winfrey and that he should be turning to her for advice instead.
Another sticking point was that Mrs Obama thought that Miss Winfrey had urged Hillary Clinton to run in the election against her husband.
When she grew sick of being rejected, specifically in her offer to help with Mrs Obama’s campaign against obesity, Miss Winfrey is supposed to have screamed out to a friend:
‘Michelle hates fat people and doesn’t want me waddling around the White House!’
In extracts already made public Mr Klein’s book also claims that former U.S. President Bill Clinton once branded Mr Obama ‘an amateur’ and too incompetent to hold office. Mr Clinton has strongly denied the claims.
Nobody from the White House was available for comment.
