Barack Obama is all smiles on the fairway, days after Michelle Obama revealed she 'couldn't stand' him
OAHU, HAWAII: Barack Obama was spotted golfing in Oahu on Tuesday, January 3. The former President was beaming as he made his way around the Beach Golf Clun on the Island of Oahu. Wearing a red polo shirt, shorts, and a cap, Obama looked relaxed on the court. He smiled and walked with his pals to the third hole, where they took a selfie with an employee who appeared to be having a great time.
The pictures surfaced a few weeks after Michelle Obama, 58, said that there was a ten-year period during which she "couldn't stand" her husband and called their daughters "terrorists". The former first lady made the claims about her relationship with Barack, 61, while promoting her new book 'The Light We Carry', according to Daily Mail.
In an interview with Revolt in early December, she said: "People think I'm being catty for saying this: it's like, there were 10 years where I couldn't stand my husband. "And guess when it happened? When those kids were little."
"For 10 years, while we're trying to build our careers and worrying about school and who was doing what and what, I was like, 'Argh, this isn't even'." "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 also called her girls "terrorists" when they were young, and claimed that "they have demands." "Little kids, they're terrorists. They have demands. They don't talk. They're poor communicators. They cry all the time. They're irrational. They're needy. And you love them. And so you can't blame them, right? … So you turn that ire on each other," she added. Michelle and Barack Obama moved with their family into the White House when Malia, 24, and Sasha, 21, were ten and seven years old, respectively.
Michelle and Barack met at a Chicago law firm in 1989. According to reports, their net worth is now around $70 million. The deal for their memoirs in 2017 was said to be worth about $65 million, while the deal for their Netflix show was estimated to be worth around $50 million. According to Michelle, they always respected each other despite their differences.
