President Obama leads the war on terror, but he’s really terrified of his wife.
The leader of the free world was caught on a hot mic Monday explaining that he quit smoking cigarettes after 30 years mostly because he was “scared” of First Lady Michelle Obama.
Obama was speaking with human-rights activist Maina Kiai during the UN General Assembly in New York when he was caught on a CNN microphone making the remarks about his partner in the White House.
“I hope you quit smoking,” Obama told Kiai with a laugh. “I haven’t had a cigarette in probably six years
. That’s because I’m scared of my wife.”
When Obama entered the White House in 2008, he admitted that he still sneaks a cigarette from time to time. He had reportedly been smoking since his teenage years, but the president finally kicked the habit in 2010
He claimed at the time that he wanted to make a good example for his daughters. But the president may have been influenced by the fearsome first lady, who is famous for championing vegetables and exercising.
So three years is really six in Obamaspeak.
