Michelle Obama makes heartbreaking Barack confession - 'We don't have anything in common'


MICHELLE OBAMA wrote in her autobiography “Becoming” abut visiting Kenya with husband, Barack Obama.

The trip occurred before the couple were married. They met Mr Obama’s older half-sister activist Auma Obama. Mrs Obama wrote about she had to jumpstart Miss Obama’s VW.

She wrote: “Auma’s sky-blue VW was so old that it often needed to be pushed in order to get the engine into gear.

“I’d ill-advisedly bought new white sneakers to wear on the trip, and within a day, after all the pushing we did, they’d turned reddish brown, stained with the cinnamon-hued dust of Nairobi

“For every bit of awe we felt in Kenya, we were also tired, which led to quibbling, which led finally, for whatever reason, to rage.”

She would add: “I’m so angry at Barack. I don’t think we have anything in common.”
