Inside The White House: President Obama's mother-in-law lived her entire life in Chicago, so when she was invited to move into the White House she was somewhat apprehensive. Try it for a few months, her son-in-law suggested.
Mrs. Robinson has given few interviews since moving to the White House. But on different occasions she has made it clear that that she wasn't entirely sold on the idea and that she did so reluctantly.
At the beginning it appeared that Marian Robinson was happy to spend her time practicing a form of witchcraft and caring after her two granddaughters, Malia and Sasha.
Earlier this year the Obama White House was abuzz with talk of witchcraft. A close friend of Michelle Obama disclosed that the president was furious at his mother-in-law after learning that she was practicing Santeria, an African spirit cult, in the basement of the White House. Michelle put her foot down when she heard that her mother was doing spells and trances, even sacrificing the chickens and goats being raised as part of the First Lady's experiment to become self-sustaining if the White House was picketed and food delivery trucks were not allowed in.
Obama reportedly told Michelle that if her mother didn't stop this witchcraft mumbo-jumbo, she would have to pay rent. Well, it seems that Mrs. Robinson's only source of income is her social security check that pays her $844.00 per month. Not willing to give this up, she told her son-in-law that she worked all her life for this stipend, and that since he wasn't paying any f..king rent, she'd be damned if she would.
Being he be president, he merely called his friend and appointee, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, and told him to deposit Mrs. Robinson's check into his personal account.
And that is why Mrs. Robinson accuses the President of "he be stealin my sosha shurtee check."
