Washington DC - Latest transcripts of declassified material from the Obama years have been released - and shed some light on the former first couple’s eight-year reign.
Here the Spoof website’s counter-intelligence sources can now reveal some of mystery behind the mystique that failed to make it to official Obama biographies which have netted the couple $$$s.
Our London correspondent recalls how, during a formal dinner held at Winfield House - official residence of the American ambassador to the UK - during his 2011 state visit President Obama and his First Lady had a real humdinger of a matrimonial.
The spat began with someone’s throwaway remark asking why Michelle Obama was wearing an outsized green semi-precious stone ring on the index finger of her left hand, instead of her customary wedding ring.
Mrs O answered sweetly that ‘it was the finger with which she was giving her husband the bird’.
Guests chuckled as the impromptu barb soon escalated into a classic knife stab twist poking fun at how Obama’s afternoon speech to the UK Houses of Parliament - ‘one of his very best’ - had ‘once again’ been penned by Michelle.
At this point Barack Obama nearly exploded, scolding his wife to, ‘Shut it Michelle, you’re making me real hot’ in a booming, sonorous tone.
However, true to form the First Lady just smiled sweetly and picked up her glass of 2008 Russian River Pinot Noir before walking over to where her spouse was seated.
She then promptly dunked the drink all over her husband’s just visible bald patch while cooing sweetly, ‘That’s for dissing me, hon.’
A few hours later the US London embassy switchboard was jammed with calls from around the world asking for confirmation amid reports a dinner guest had taken mobile phone pictures of the soaking.
Apparently these were available to the highest bidder at around $500,000.
In the morning the British Foreign Office was forced to deny the entire event after an emergency Government injunction stopped publication.
But the ‘leak’ had already done its worst, and had to be patched up with hurried damage limitation before an official government whitewash erased it from the public domain.
Eventually the disclosure was traced to a spoof US Snake Department troll.
