Michelle Obama echoed the sentiment of many Americans when she revealed in a recent interview that she “couldn’t stand” her husband Barack Obama for about a decade.
“People think I’m being catty by saying this. It’s like, there were ten years where I couldn’t stand my husband. You know? Ten whole years. And guess when it happened. When those kids were little. Right?,” Michelle Obama stated in an interview with Revolt TV.
Michelle Obama complained that the juggling of personal and professional responsibilities in their marriage was not “even,” and expressed anger that Barack apparently had time to play golf during those years. Regarding her husband, Michelle Obama remembered herself believing, “I’m not happy with you, but I respect you.”
Michelle Obama’s public disrespect for Barack is not especially surprising, considering her angry and toxic attitude during her tenure as First Lady. Insiders viewed Michelle Obama as wielding considerable power over her husband in the White House, as embodied by the presence of top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, who was seen as a close ally of Michelle. Valerie Jarrett was arguably the most powerful operative in the Obama administration during Obama’s contentious two terms, when the country experienced economic turmoil, race riots, and a State Department-engineered regime change war in Libya. Michelle Obama was perhaps the most divisive member of the Obama team, affecting school lunches with her unpopular healthy-eating program and never shedding her image of anti-Americanism after she said on the campaign trail that she was proud of America “for the first time in my adult life.”
Michelle Obama has been talked about as a possible presidential candidate in the future, but her unlikable nature will always complicate any political aspirations she might have. It’s clear that Michelle Obama is an angry person, and that Barack Obama is a beta male for putting up with such pointed and public disrespect from his own wife.
