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.

Wait a second, everybody. I know there are a lot of posts here already, and if someone has already posted something similar already, then I apologize - haven't read them all.
But - what if the Obamas ARE DIVORCED NOW? And have been since 2007 or so?
Then what the hell have we been paying for her ultra-mega-luxurious vacations for?!
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.
A fast-moving brush fire in Riverside County burned through at least 5,000 acres in less than four hours Wednesday, and destroyed an undetermined number of buildings and homes. The Silver fire began shortly after 2 p.m. around Poppet Flats Road near Highway 243, south of Banning. CalFire reported "multiple structures involved" in Twin Pines, and television footage showed other homes and buildings on fire in nearby Poppet Flats. Mandatory evacuations were in place for the communities of Poppet Flats, Twin Pines and Silent Valley. Highway 243 was closed
In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory. The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it. HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP convention in July. "Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard
President Obama is slated to deliver a speech later this month commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington in which Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Obama will deliver his speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial — the same place where King spoke 50 years ago. The Let Freedom Ring ceremony will be held Aug. 28. "It’s obviously a historic, seminal event in the country. It’s part of my generation’s formative memory and it’s a good time for us to do some reflection,"
WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama says the U.S. is providing an additional $195 million in humanitarian and food aid to Syria. That means the U.S. has now sent more than $1 billion in humanitarian aid since the 2-year-old Syrian civil war started. Obama is timing the new aid to coincide with Eid al-Fitr (ayd ahl-FIH´-tur), a holiday marking the end of Ramadan, Islam´s holy month of fasting. Obama says many Americans have celebrated Ramadan with Muslims. (Snip) The White House issued the statement Wednesday while Obama was traveling in California.
Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida, on Tuesday sent a blistering critique of Hollywood actor Matt Damon’s decision to school his three children at a private facility, not public: You’re such a hypocrite. Mr. Damon did, after all, campaign very publicly about the importance of public education, Mr. Bush pointed out, Newsmax reported. On Monday, Mr. Bush tweeted: “Matt Damon refuses to enroll kids in Los Angeles public schools. Choice ok for Damon, why not everyone else?” The Twitter query came just a few days after the Hollywood actor interviewed with a reporter from The Guardian and said
On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski alighted on one of the great low-hanging-fruit debates of modern media: whether MSNBC and Fox News are merely mirror images of each other on opposing sides of the country’s ideological divide. The discussion between the two MSNBCers began after they mentioned Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus’s attack on CNN and NBC for planning specials on Hillary Rodham Clinton. Brzezinski talked about getting Priebus on MSNBC to chat about things, but she said that he already had his proprietary outlet in Fox News. Then it got going: Scarborough:
Members of Congress and Hill staffers will not lose their health-care subsidies from the government when Obamacare is implemented because of an exception proposed Wednesday by the Office of Personnel Management. (Snip) The potential for staff losing the subsidies led to concerns of “brain drain” from the Hill if staffers left as a result of the increased costs. Last week, when President Barack Obama came to the Hill to meet with Senate Democrats, he informed them that he would personally get involved to sort out the confusion, and the White House said that OPM would issue guidelines this week.
Some city “gifted and talented” students are more equal than others — and that’s OK, a Manhattan judge has ruled. Outraged parents yesterday said they were planning to send their kids to private school — or even move out of the city — after the ruling that the Department of Education can continue giving preferential treatment to the younger siblings of current “gifted and talented” students when deciding which 4-year-olds get admitted to the hyper-competitive program. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Alice Schlesinger tossed a suit by parents of some of the extra smart kids who got edged out by
Love. It’s the most powerful word in the English language. When it is flanked by two pronouns, it becomes the most powerful sentence in the English language: I love you. Those three words change hearts. They change lives. They change everything. It doesn’t matter what part of the world you live in or what language you speak, there are the equivalents of those three words. And they carry with them the same power everywhere they’re uttered. For the person saying them, and the one hearing them.
President Obama had a private dinner with DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg during a visit to Los Angeles on Tuesday. Obama and Katzenberg, a major donor to the president´s campaigns and the pro-Obama super-PAC Priorities USA, dined at the Hilton Woodland Hills hotel, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday, according to a pool report. The dinner had not previously been disclosed. Carney called Katzenberg a "longtime friend" of the president and said that the two dined in Obama´s hotel room. The president picked up the tab.
Los Angeles- Former Food Network star Paula Deen turned down a chance to compete on "Dancing with the Stars" in Los Angeles, UsMagazine.com reported Wednesday. "The dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her," a source close to Deen told the magazine. The 66-year-old, Georgia-born chef admitted in a May deposition for a lawsuit she had used the N-word in the past. That comment, and her description of a so-called plantation-style wedding she would like to see, sparked a media firestorm that prompted the Food Network to fire her. Deen later insisted she is not a racist and
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer had some harsh words Tuesday for the White House calling the evacuation of our embassies in the Middle East “ordered departures.” Appearing on Fox News’s Special Report, Krauthammer said, “This is the first administration in history ever to launch a lexicological war on the enemy. You know, they’ve thrown the book at them - the dictionary.” [Video] BRET BAIER, HOST: The state department splitting hairs over “ordered departure” or evacuation as you heard there.
WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.
The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking
Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster. In the second term, there is little
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
The U.S. State Department issued a global alert about the terrorist threat allegedly posed by Al-Qaeda in Yemen. The USA announced the closure of its missions in the Middle East and Africa, and their example was followed by France, Britain, and Germany. However, this was only an attempt to justify the activities of the National Security Agency.Last Saturday, right after alerting of the terror threat civilians and BOLO complex ("be on the lookout") that includes law enforcement and federal officials, President Barack Obama went to play golf, and then celebrated his birthday at the presidential retreat at Camp David.
Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP’s future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.
Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach
A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –
Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda
Speaking from Egypt Tuesday night, where they are hoping to broker a peaceful transition period between the country’s ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi to its next phase of nascent democracy, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham warned that concessions on both sides needed to begin immediately or Egypt’s government would “fail.” “I didn’t know it was this bad,” Graham said. “These folks are just days, weeks away from all out bloodshed.” “There is only one way that we can bring about a peaceful Egypt, and that is a process of negotiation and reconciliation between major players,” McCain said.
