She allegedly ripped into Barack Obama and shouted; “Stay away from that woman” in reference to this well-known Hollywood star.
It comes as no shock that the National Enquirer would claim that Michelle Obama went into a rage over alleged inappropriate flirtations between Obama and Kerry Washington, of “Dhango Unchained” and the television show “Scandal.”
What is perplexing is that mainstream media reporters have taken an interest in the story and appear to be going out of out their way to dispel the rumors.
The Enquirer reported: “Michelle Obama cast an ugly shadow over her husband’s second inauguration when she flew into a jealous rage over a sexy Hollywood star. Sources in Washington D.C. revealed exclusively to the Enquirer that the first lady exploded at Barack Obama behind closed doors over ‘Scandal’ beauty Kerry Washington.”
The Enquirer went on to quote an “inside source” as saying: “The public only saw her smiling and supporting him. But, believe me, it was one of their ugliest fights ever.”
Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that Washington’s character on the television series, Olivia Pope, is having an affair with the fictional character of the President of the United States portrayed on the show. Moreover, the Enquirer is not the only publication that has noticed that Michelle’s new bangs look suspiciously similar to Washington’s.
Of course, this latest accusation does not mark the first time that Michelle has been accused of going into a Berserker rage, nor is it the first time that the gossip tabloids have reported on the topic of extra-martial affairs plaguing the Obama household.
Last year, the tabloids were abuzz with stories that Michelle Obama was having an affair with a Secret Service agent and some had gone so far, in the past, to allege that Barack Obama has had homosexual liaisons.
Allegations of untoward flirtations between Obama and Washington have been made in the past, but the mainstream media moved quickly, back then, to put the rumors to rest.
Some months ago, Politico.com reported “Actress Kerry Washington says a rumor that she’s been flirting with President Barack Obama makes no sense.”
The Washington Examiner, while cautious, also leaned toward discrediting the rumors: “The anonymous source portrayed Michelle Obama as a jealous wife who warned her husband to stay away from actress Kerry Washington on a Hollywood fundraising trip., reminiscent of the constantly recurring rumors of the so-called Barack Obama – Vera Baker affair.”
And even the Daily Mail UK, which is no stranger to printing scandalous accusations, reported: “The First Lady was said to have a ‘watch list’ of women that were to be kept away from her 50-year-old husband – but it’s a story one White House official claims it totally false.”
And yet, rumors persist. Why? Perhaps Washington, when denying the accusation that she was overly-flirtatious with Obama, said it best: “Wow, people are really into Scandal.”
