Donald Trump is to claim that he has unearthed divorce papers of Michelle Obama and the President, according to a respected financial pundit with links to the tycoon. It is alleged that the eccentric real estate mogul will claim that the documents show the First Lady and the President were at one point in their two decades of marriage seriously considering splitting up. Trump set the hare running on Monday by claiming that he was set to make an announcement on Wednesday that would be ‘bordering on gigantic' and that it would ‘possibly’ change the Presidential race.
...if this is it, it's somewhat old news...the story has been around before. It was after 0bama lost the race for congress...
...at this point, in this race, I sure hope The Donald has something more to go with...how about a membership card to "Man's Country" in Chicago...now that might shake up the folks...(and explain a lot)
Hard to figure. If it's just a vanilla divorce action, then it gins up sympathy for the Obamas. BUT, if there is a certain beautiful young lady named Vera Baker mentioned, it's a whole new ballgame. Who knows what he's up to, Trump is a carnival barker.
I wish Trumpy would shut it. Nothing he brings out will do anything but distract from Romney's message. Trump is playing for the other team, me thinks.
And, by the way, regardless of whether or not he discovered divorce papers, it appears they are still married and they have two daughters who live with them as a family. That's about the only thing the Obamas have going for them. And it's not, nor has it ever been, enough. So why attack it if you're not out to generate sympathy for the Won?
I read about Michelle wanting a divorce in The Amateur. Romney needs to stay way, way, far away from this as it is old news and the American people don't care about it. No big deal unless she wanted a divorce because of his drug use or something really bad he did to her or the kids.
An even bigger bombshell would be something like Larry Flynt claiming he has bona fide photos of a naked Michelle Obama, and he'll promise to burn all copies and negatives if Romney will drop out of the race.
Drumming up publicity for the new season of Apprentice.
I specifically remember seeing an interview with the Obamas during the last election where they both admitted to being separated and having relationships with other people - can't find anyone else that remembers, though. I was at the hospital, in the early morning, waiting for major tests and some alphabet news channel was on - oh well, maybe I was already drugged up and dreamed it, but I don't think so!!
If my memory serves me, mr hussein obama knocked out his primary opponent for the u.s. senate, on the divorce stuff. Then he forced ryan to withdraw because the chicago tribune went to court, and had ryan's divorce file unsealed. We, as citizens of the U.S., should never allow a chicago politician, ever again, to run for national office.
If this turns out to be true I hope the lib heads explode over it. Obama did the same thing to his opponent Jack Ryan in the senate race of 2004 by mysteriously getting a judge to release the sealed divorce papers. This would be a bit of payback to the Obama`s we`d all enjoy.
If true, this is, aside from distasteful, counterproductive.
I do not see how this would change anything to Romney's favor, unless the allegations therein are of a such a nature that even the most politically correct types would be hard pressed to explain it away (i.e. spousal abuse, or worse).
The Linebacker has always been a very unhappy looking woman. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that the Muslim in Chief isn't getting the job done in the boudoir. He probably isn't even interested, preferring to consort with young men. For instance, look at his regular golf foursome. There ain't one firm handshake in that entire bunch. Hell, a couple of those guys probably haven't even started shaving yet. I think the sauna gets more action than the golf course.
Maybe the Donald is going to reveal specific details of Barry O's enjoyment of older white men at Chicago's "Man Country" gay bath house. Rumor has it that Barry was a very selfish lover. And I'll leave The Donald or you to fill in the details.
If this is true it is significant if there was another woman, or another man involved. And it's significant if he is prone to severe depression as mentioned in the article. if 0bama is on antidepressants, that could explain his lethargic demeanor in the first debate and on several other occasions.
This has been known for sometime. It was after he lost his first campaign for the State Congress. Now, if he would have contact with the individual who is will to submit to a polygraph with info about barry s. selling weed and coke when he was at Columbia, that would be better, and/or back L. Sinclair when Barack bought cocaine for Sinclair and Crack for himself. Barack even had his own grass pipe to smoke the crack----that was in 1999. Need to find out what he was smokin' right before he went out to stand in front of his styrofoam columns--the guy who witnessed that unforunately came up dead. Diane Finestein is familiar with that situation.
Divorce? If so, it's very stupid. Divorce papers consist of allegations, big deal. Unless it states he was born in Kenya or is a citizen of Kenya or is a non-citizen or something else along those lines, it's a loser.
well lets see gloria is calling an EMERGENCY meeting in boston tomorrow to unseal testimony.....what is URGENT about it......i dont know what is in these papers...that might be interesting....if bammy was haning around the chicago bathhouses.....then maybe.....it is all crap........dirty...lets vote and move on with a real president...one who is MORAL
If this is Trump's "Big Bombshell", he'll probably be laughed out of the country. I don't think Trump would embarrass himself like that.Is it possible that this is a story to cover what Trump really has?
How about Trump challenges Gloria Allred to a mudwrestling match and the voters decide the fate of our nation based on the things that affect their lives? Maybe the Honey Boo-Boos can be mesmerized by this junk while the adults vote.
I believe that this is going to be yet another Trump dud. The Leftist asshats who were going to vote for the Asshat-in-Chief are going to vote for him no matter what. And the Independents aren’t even going to bother with the story.
The MAJOR story that SHOULD be affecting the Independents is the story that is NOT receiving coverage – The Benghazi Massacre.
Yeah, this is a non story. If this is all Trump has, it will not help Romney, but garner sympathy for Obama. Unless, this is where it reveals that Obama was into men and that is listed as a reason for seeking divorce. Everyone is afraid to address Obama's homosexuality and I don't know why.
Please, for the sake of the country, restrain yourself. Most couples go through rough patches. The fact that they worked it through when they didn't feel like it is a testament to their commitment to family life. You will only be pointing out an admirable VIRTUE in a political opponent. Sheesh.
Ok just for the sake of argument, what if they are truly divorced, then what does that say about the female living with him in the White House? Surely she isn't sleeping in the Lincoln Bedroom is she? If so then what about the other woman close to him like glue?
I have rarely seen this much agreement in a blog. Add me to the list. Romney is doing great and there are less than two weeks to go. Trump needs to shut up. This kind of thing, or the Birth Certificate thing are LOSERS right now. Trump is the equivalent of a third party candidate at this point. Doing nothing but helping the one he disagrees with the most.
If the story has something to do with drugs it won't matter because all that will do is get more votes from the occupy crowd. Of course I can't believe anybody in their right mind would vote for the Fraud-In-Chief. But I can't believe that Trump would throw Romney under the bus, he endoruced him publicly, but then again Trump is about one brick short of a load.
I read somewhere that 50% of marriages in the United States end in divorce. And I'd wager the other 50% have probably considered it, seriously or fleetingly, at one time or another. I can't stand Urkel and Aunt Esther, but this is a colossal nothing-burger which will only garner sympathy for the First Leaches. Donald, you're fired.
There is no real affection betweenthem. BUT -- who cares...
When President Romney's children and grandchildren came on the stage the other night -- I smiled as they gathered round. The obamas didn't have the same loving affection from their families.... Why -- do you suppose? In fact they had to "horn in" on the Romney family...

Well as long as we are all engaging in pure speculation, I'll throw in my 2 cents worth. A plain Jane divorce filing for irreconcileable differences will not make a whit's worth of impact on the electorate. Pick up your yellow pages and see how many divorce attorneys there are in your community per 1,000 population. It is entirely to common to be shocking. Now with some lacivious details, that could be another matter, but it will have to be shocking. Such as:
Documented drug use Documented homosexual activity Documentation showing that BHO had committed fraud by attending college as a foreign student.
Please note that the first two item could bealledged against him or her.
As for the messenger, what a waist of space. The Donald's 15 minutes were up 20 years ago. He is a net negative in all his pursuits.
I don't see what good this does toward electing Romney.
As other posters have noted, Ed Klein mentions that Michelle wanted a divorce in "The Amateur." The White House has denied that ever happened. Producing divorce papers would show that Klein was in fact correct.
NASA’s steady reconnaissance of Mars with the Curiosity rover has produced another major discovery: evidence of an ancient lake — with water that could plausibly be described as drinkable — that was part of a long-standing, wet environment that could have supported simple forms of life. Scientists have known that the young Mars was more Earthlike than the desert planet we see today, but this is the best evidence yet that Mars had swimming holes that stuck around for thousands or perhaps millions of years. (It would have been very chilly — bring a wet suit.) The findings were being
JOHANNESBURG — President Obama, his predecessor, and the woman who might be his successor crossed the Atlantic together Monday in an example of extended bipartisan togetherness to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela at a memorial service Tuesday. For more than 16 hours, Mr. Obama hosted former President George W. Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton aboard Air Force One — part of a global pilgrimage that is expected to bring as many as 100 world leaders to South Africa. (Snip) On board the presidential aircraft as it flew to South Africa, White House aides said Mr. Obama
Today Politico´s Dylan Byers got tough on MSNBC with two posts calling into question the channel´s journalistic credibility. Byers started the day by going after MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry for something she said over the weekend. Harris-Perry claimed Sunday that the term Obamacare was an attempt by white people to denigrate a black President. Byers pointed out that "Hillarycare" and "Reaganomics" seem like similar appellations and asked, in light of these, how "Obamacare" could be implicitly racist while the other terms are not. It´s not clear whether Harris-Perry responded to Byers´ challenge privately but she did not tweet (or anything
World leaders have gathered in Johannesburg to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela at a memorial service for the former president of South Africa, five days after he died at the age of 95. Barack Obama was pictured arriving after a 17-hour flight from Washington on board Air Force One, during which he rode with his wife Michelle, former President George W. Bush, Laura Bush, and Hillary Clinton. He has been given a prominent role in the memorial service for former South African president Nelson Mandela - but may face awkward moments if he comes face to face with controversial leaders
Jim Murray, an English writer and one of the world’s top whiskey critics, believes Scottish malt is no match for American whiskey. “Generally speaking, bourbon … has overtaken Scotch,” he said, according to the Telegraph. Mr. Murray, who wrote “Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible,” argues that Scotland’s decrease in quality whiskey is due to the use of sulphur candles to sanitize some barrels that have been used to age sherry, giving it a “bitter finish.” Bourbon, however, is aged in virgin oak casks, which do not require sulphur treatment, the Telegraph said. “The best whiskey is coming not from Scotland any
Brothers Tryon, 19, and Tyshaune Kincade, 18, were formally charged Monday in the shooting death of Sergent First Class Jim Vester, 32, after arranging to sell the 12-year military veteran an iPad on Wednesday. According to phone records released by the police, the Indianapolis father wanted to buy an iPad from the brothers as a Christmas present for his parents based off of their Craigslist ad. At 3:05pm, Vester texted: ´Can I get your address´. At 3:14pm, the suspects texted him to meet at 920 Wyckford Dr. Vester arrived at the address at 3:49pm and texted: ´are you here?´ and the
Andrea Elliott, in her NY Times article "Invisible Child," articulates the disheartening existence of a family living on the meager support of government welfare. She invites her readers to look through the eyes of Dasani, the family´s 11-year-old girl. The family has a complex relationship with the welfare programs that both keep them afloat and keep their situation hopeless. Liberals advocate that welfare programs are designed to help the least fortunate and that they demonstrate a society’s compassion. However, sometimes too much compassion by the state can devolve into what recovering drug addicts would call "enabling." Moreover, the "compassionate environment"
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
