LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – An alleged Obama divorce story is the subject of Edward Klein’s new book. Klein claims Michelle Obama sought to divorce Barack Obama in 2000. The allegations surface in Klein’s book “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House” hitting stands this week. But the White House tells news that the book is a work of fiction.
Klein’s Obama divorce story focuses on Chicago politics. He claims that Michelle told her husband not to run against Bobby Rush in a 2000 election. Klein claims that Michelle’s advice was allegedly refuted by the President who ran for the Chicago House of Representatives and lost.
President Obama’s spokesman Eric Schultz is not only calling the book a work of fiction but denouncing its author personally. “Ed Klein has a proven history of reckless fabrication in order to sell books. Nobody in their right mind would believe the nonsense in this one.”
Klein claims that the First Lady in 2000 even considered “divorce papers drawn up”. The author has to respond to Schultz’s statement.
Most recently, the First Lady has made news for her campaign against childhood obesity. She has told news “I love burgers and fries. The question is, how do we balance that all out.” Her effort has been joined by Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar.
