What a guy! The man the Left likes to hold up as an exemplar of presidential decorum and grace in contrast with Donald Trump is actually so petty and egotistical that he is willing to rat out his own wife for having used a ghostwriter.
According to The Atlantic:
The writing [of Barack Obama’s memoir — his third!] has been going more slowly than he’d expected, and according to several people who have spoken with him, the 44th president is feeling competitive with his wife, whose own book, Becoming, was the biggest release of 2018 and is on track to be the best-selling memoir in history. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, like others in this story, these sources note he’ll occasionally point out in conversation that he’s writing this book himself, while Michelle used a ghostwriter.
That Michelle Obama used a ghost-writer is a big no duh for anyone who has ever glimpsed the grammatically challenged senior thesis she wrote as an undergraduate at Princeton.
As for her husband, David Rutz of The Washington Beacon reminds us that this latest stunt is “not out of character for the famously competitive Obama, who in 2018 repeatedly demanded credit for the nation’s robust economy under President Donald Trump.” Repeatedly. Here’s a mix tape of the former president chastening those who credit his successor for an economy he could no dream of during his eight years in office.
