Jealous Michelle vs. Oprah

How two of America’s most powerful women grew to despise each other

By EDWARD KLEIN

In his new book, “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House,” journalist Edward Klein reveals how even former friends and political allies of the president have become frustrated with his remoteness and bungling of crises. Klein, former editor of The New York Times Magazine and frequent contributor to Vanity Fair, interviewed numerous members of Obama’s inner circle. In this excerpt, he explains how even celebrity backer Oprah Winfrey was shoved aside.

The problem seemed to originate from two of Michelle’s advisers, Valerie Jarrett and Desirée Rogers, the new White House social secretary. They resented Oprah’s meddling in their bailiwick. Among other things, Oprah had a plan to redecorate the Lincoln bedroom. She also had ideas about how Michelle could put more zing into White House social events.

    America’s First Gay President

    We already knew Barack Hussein Obama was America’s first semi-black president. Now, according to Newsweek, he is apparently also our first gay president!

    I don’t know whether the editors at the magazine were trying to out our commander-in-chief as a homosexual or whether Michelle Obama was aware all these years that her hubby had been living in a closet.

    When the editors featured the president on the cover of their latest edition with his head crowned with a multi-colored halo, they may have been figuratively crowning him with the title of King of America’s gay community as an adjunct to his already well-earned titles of Nobel Peace Prize Winner, “the Anointed One,” “Master of the Universe,” etc.

    Unless it’s related to the president’s sudden, truly-miraculous, election-year evolution from being an adversary of same-sex marriage to finally comprehending the moraI and legal rightness of men marrying other men and women wedding other women, I really don’t grasp the editorial rationale of declaring Obama “The First Gay President.”

    Perhaps if I read the leftist rag that is Newsweek, I’d comprehend more.

    I do know that the rainbow halo is a nice touch beautifully complementing all the other halos superimposed on his head by his mainstream media over the last four years. . .

    Oprah can no longer afford the Mooch and her gay husband. The Obummers do kick people to the curb.

    I think that Oprah Winfrey is probably kicking herself repeatedly for stupidly doubling-down on Obama in 2008. It is not a coincidence that her show ended and her new network is failing miserably. The two things are directly connected. Oprah shot her career in the head because her support for “The One.”

    I can’t believe those two NAGs are fighting over an underweight flamer like Baraq, whom neither has a chance with even if he were worthy. But Oprah is NOT the First Wookie and Mooch is so the former needs to back off on any WH re-decorating unless invited. Other than that, nigra on nigra cat fight: pass the popcorn! :D

    I would pay for ringside seats to see Moochelle and Oprah in a no holds eating contest. Truly it would be an epic battle.

    Okra’s bigger, but Moose is meaner.

    And you can’t fix stupid. It was only a couple weeks ago that Okra said she’s all in for Bari for ’12.

    What does she care? What she has lost is NOTHING when you’re the richest woman in the world.

    “Ghetto trash with cash”

    Sadly, instead of supporting a woman like Condoleezza Rice, the black community crew in behind these two no class ghetto whore’s. A ghetto bitch will always be a ghetto bitch, all the money in the freakin’ world will NEVER change that.

    Damn! I want to read this book!

    I’d heard Rush talking about Moose hating “fat people waddling around the White House” last week and LMAO. The irony is too much.

    FTA: “Michelle also told them how great it was to be waited on by a large staff, as if Oprah wouldn’t know about that. And oddly enough, Michelle mentioned that the White House cooks made the best pie in the world.”

    “PIE”? Is that a new vegetable? Clue me in here!
    It can’t be “pie” as in dessert, now can it?

    Sorry but I call Bullsh*t that Oprah is no longer Moochs pal. Oprah will say or do anything to get whitey back as her audience–she is losing what is most important to her and that is MONEY. She would lie and say she hated Gayle King if it meant she would get her middle age white aomen back.
