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.
Environmental Protection Agency employees received light punishments for “employee integrity” violations and avoided prosecution when crimes allegedly occurred, according to the agency’s inspector general. The IG revealed a list of employee integrity violations that included assault, illegal possession of a weapon, and efforts to solicit improper personal payments from agency contractors, among other violations. Many received light punishments for the offenses, including ethics counseling, short leaves of absence, and informal discussions with supervisors. One employee was sentenced to 18 months of probation for attempting to carry a knife, stashed in one of his shoes, onto a plane. Despite the criminal prosecution, the
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is spending an additional $55 million to “bolster” the healthcare workforce, as Obamacare contributes to shortages in the industry. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced last week that her agency will provide over 270 grants “from diversity to dentistry” to address worker shortages in the healthcare industry. The funding includes $45.4 million to support the nursing workforce, $5.2 million of which will go towards “improving nursing diversity.” The grants also provide $2.4 million for training of doctoral-level psychologists to “address the behavioral health needs of vulnerable and underserved populations,” and $3 million to support
Office Depot said Tuesday it has chosen Boca Raton, Fla. for its new headquarters over Naperville. Office Depot completed its merger with Naperville-based OfficeMax last month, but the pair hadn´t yet announced where the combined company would be based. The companies asked for tax breaks from both states. Illinois lawmakers adjourned last week before making a decision. Last month, the company named Roland Smith, the former head of the U.S. unit of supermarkets operator Delhaize Group, as its new CEO, hoping to tap into his turnaround and integration background. The company said the evaluation of its headquarters selection was based
The most influential think tank in Washington is getting a new address: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Metaphorically speaking, of course. But The Center for American Progress has so many contributors, fellows, and staffers who already work there they may as well make it offical and change the address on their business cards. This is especially true now that the founder and chairman of the board of CAP, John Podesta, is going to work for Obama. New York Times: President Obama, after a rocky year that leaves him at the lowest ebb of his presidency, is bringing into his White House circle the longtime
WASHINGTON- Democratic Representative Mel Watt´s nomination to lead the agency that regulates taxpayer-owned mortgage financiers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac cleared a procedural hurdle in the U.S. Senate, putting it on course for final approval likely later on Tuesday. President Barack Obama nominated Watt in May to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency, but Republicans had blocked a final vote. Last month, however, Senate Democrats changed the rules to allow nominees like Watt to overcome filibusters with a simple majority in the 100-seat chamber. Previously, it took 60 votes.
The generous mystery tipper who has been leaving waiters and waitresses across the country thousands of dollars in "Tips for Jesus" — and stamped with the @tipsforjesus handle — was identified by a New York City waiter as Jack Selby, former PayPal vice president. Aruj Dhawan, a waiter at Bo´s Kitchen, told the New York Post that Selby and two other patrons gave him a $1,000 tip on a $111.05 bill. "As I was about to drop the check off, one of the men said they would ‘make my night.’ They called me over, gave me the check," Dhawan told
General Motors GM -0.22% CEO Dan Akerson and the GM board have selected product chief Mary Barra to succeed him, the company said today, and Akerson is retiring in January. The move will make 33-year GM veteran Barra the first woman to lead a global automaker. Arguably, it will make her the highest-profile female CEO in the world. It also set in motion a cascade of other management changes in the biggest re-set of the automaker’s leadership since the 2009 U.S.-government bailout. But all the moves were internal. Akerson accelerated the timing of his exit by several months because of
Democrats have blamed much of the gridlock on Capitol Hill on a number of GOP extremists who won’t accept legislation that is not perfect in their minds. Asked by Kenneth G. Langone, the co-founder of Home Depot, whether there are any extremists in the Democratic ranks, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said no. “I don’t think there are any extremists in my party,” the Maryland Democrat said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” Mr. Langone expressed disbelief at the comment. “What more can I say,” he said. “The other guys are the bad guys, you are the good guys.” Mr. Hoyer said
“Netflix is casting its vote for Mitt Romney,” quipped The Hollywood Reporter. The video streaming service has acquired a Greg Whiteley documentary titled “Mitt” that will debut January 24. The behind-the-scenes documentary on Romney’s campaigns for president from 2006 to 2012 with a “surprising level of access” to the candidate will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 17. Lisa Nishimura, Netflix vice president of original documentary and comedy, declared "This rare inside look at Mitt Romney and his family as he runs for president showcases a unique kind of storytelling, one which takes the viewer well beyond the
Reporting from South Africa on Tuesday´s NBC Today about the memorial ceremony for Nelson Mandela, Nightly News anchor Brian Williams noted how the "dignitary section has some criminals, some thieves, some kings, some presidents" and that "Several have been life-long sworn enemies." He then proclaimed that President Obama´s "handshake with [Cuban leader] Raul Castro was one of the better moments." [View video after the jump] Williams gushed that oppressive dictators sitting side by side with democratically elected leaders of the free world was somehow part of Mandela´s legacy: "What would Nelson Mandela say to all of them and say to
The Club for Growth said Tuesday it won´t help Rep. Steve Stockman´s (R-Texas) primary challenge against Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas). The conservative group said it has no problem with Cornyn and won´t spend the millions of dollars necessary to help the cash-strapped Stockman in the race. “While Congressman Stockman has a pro-economic growth record, so does Senator Cornyn, as witnessed by his 87 percent lifetime Club for Growth score,” Club for Growth President Chris Chocola said in a statement. Chocola said the Club´s PAC looks at the strength of the incumbent´s record, the degree of difference between the candidates and
On Tuesday morning, New York’s top court ruled that FoxNews.com reporter Jana Winter cannot be forced by a Colorado court to reveal her sources regarding a major story about the Aurora movie theater shooter. Voting 4-3 in favor of Winter, the New York State Court of Appeals reversed a lower court order and effectively prevented Winter from having to be subpoenaed by the Colorado court. “[A]n order from a New York court directing a reporter to appear in another state where, as here, there is a substantial likelihood that she will be compelled to identify sources who have been promised
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
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
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
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
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
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a last minute decision not to participate in a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela, despite having notified the South African government that he would attend the event. The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister in Johannesburg. The Prime Minister’s Office found that the trip would have cost roughly 7 million shekels ($2.4 million) – 2.8 million shekels for chartering a private El Al plane and a further 3.2 million shekels for
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
President Obama will make remarks on Nelson Mandela´s legacy during a memorial service Tuesday for the late South African freedom fighter, officials said Monday. "We do expect President Obama to speak as part of the program," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications.

Obama, who will also spend time with the Mandela family, is not scheduled to hold any bilateral meetings with foreign leaders while in South Africa, Rhodes said. Rhodes also said the
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg.
