Former first lady Michelle Obama revealed that she “couldn’t stand” former President Barack Obama for a decade.
During an interview with Revolt TV, while promoting her book, Michelle Obama recounted how she was disgusted with her husband for a decade. Michelle Obama declared, “People think I’m being catty for saying this: It’s like, there were 10 years where I couldn’t stand my husband.”
The former first lady of eight years added, “And guess when it happened? When those kids were little.”
The wife of the 44th president added, “For 10 years while we’re trying to build our careers and worrying about school and who’s doing what and what, I was like, ‘Argh, this isn’t even!’”
She continued, “And guess what? Marriage isn’t 50/50, ever. Ever. There are times I’m 70, he’s 30. There are times he’s 60, 40. But guess what? Ten years. We’ve been married 30. I would take 10 bad years over 30 — it’s just how you look at it. People give up — ‘Five years; I can’t take it.’”
Michelle Obama said, “Do you like him? I mean, you could be mad at him, but do you still look at him and go, ‘I’m not happy with you, but I respect you. I don’t agree with you, but you’re still a kind, smart person.'”
She proclaimed, “Little kids, they’re terrorists. They have demands. They don’t talk. They’re poor communicators. They cry all the time.”
Michelle, 58, met Barack, 61, at a law firm in Chicago in 1989. Michelle married Barack Obama on October 3, 1992. The couple had two daughters: Malia and Sasha. Michelle, Barack, and their daughters lived in the White House from Jan. 20, 2009, until Jan. 19, 2017. The Obama children were ages 7 and 10 when they moved into the White House.
In 2017, Michelle Obama secured a $65 million book deal. In 2018, the Obamas notched a $50 million deal with Netflix.
The New York Post reported in 2018, “Forbes estimated the couple made $20.5 million in salaries and book royalties between 2005 — when Barack Obama became a US senator and they first arrived in Washington — and 2016. They are now worth more than $135 million. And like her husband, Michelle Obama is currently in demand as a speaker for corporations and nonprofits, commanding $225,000 per appearance, The Post has learned.”
