In his book called The First Family Detail, Robert Kessler attempts to reveal the conversations that happen in the White House behind closed doors. That ranges from official conversations to small interactions between former First couple themselves.
The relationship between Michelle and her husband is an interesting one to take in. According to secret service agents assigned to the first family, Michelle has a visceral reaction to white Republicans. And, according to claims by secret service agents, Michelle often verbally insists that Obama take the “African American” side of social issues.
Although this is not entirely a secret, it is still shocking to hear from such an inside source.
Perhaps the best example of Michelle’s stance comes with the Trayvon Martin scandal, when Obama deemed the controversial cases a “tragedy.” At the time, the president commented that if he had a son, he imagined he would “look a lot like Trayvon Martin.”
What do you think? Are you surprised that Michelle rules the roost when it comes to Obama’s decision-making?
