There is yet another book on the shelves about The First Couple. But “Barack and Michelle: Portrait of An American Marriage” (William Morrow) is different from the pack. Penned by New York Times best-selling author Christopher Andersen, the tome delves into some un-pretty details on this love affair we rarely hear about.
Reportedly, the book claims the First Lady gave her husband the silent treatment at one point in his campaign because so many women “pushed their bodies up against his and slipped phone numbers into his pockets.”
“Michelle, understandably was not amused,” Andersen writes. He quotes her as saying, “…I want to tell these women, ‘Back off. Get a life.’ It’s just embarrassing.”
