JUST IN: An announcement was just made about Barack and Michelle Obama that left many people surprised.
Yahoo Sports reported that as natives of Chicago, Barack and Michelle Obama are known for being longtime Bulls friends. That’s why it was shocking when Michelle’s brother just spoke out to say that they are now actually fans of the New York Knicks.
Michelle’s brother Craig Robinson was hired by the Knicks last summer as an executive focused on player development., and he boasted that the former first couple is now rooting for the team.
“Now that you’re with the Knicks, are Michelle and Barack Obama rooting for the team?” a reporter asked Robinson.
“Yeah, they are,” he replied. “They are absolutely Knicks fans, but they are both Chicago Bulls fans. They wouldn’t stop rooting for the Bulls even when I was with the Bucks. I never had to worry about it when I was coaching college. But yeah, they are Knicks fans, they pay attention. So I get critiqued by the former president of the United States and the former first lady.”
Robinson went on to throw Michelle under the bus, indicating that she’s just as obnoxious as we all think she is.
“Did you learn anything from Barack Obama about leadership?” the reporter asked.
“The most I learned from him is how to deal with my sister. She’s not the easiest,” he replied.
OUCH! Michelle is not going to be happy about that dig!
Perhaps the Obamas have ditched the Bulls because the city of Chicago wants nothing to do with them. The Washington Times reported that Chicagoans have widely slammed Obama’s planned library, calling it an “ugly waste of taxpayer resources” and a “dangerous precedent” for the preservation of historic public parklands. Letters sent to the Chicago Tribune over the past few weeks have overwhelmingly panned the library, which will consume nearly 20 acres from historic Jackson Park and cost taxpayers $100 million in renovations to the surrounding area.
In a January 26 letter, Illinois resident John Deal called the egg-shaped main tower and surrounding buildings “garish monstrosities that ruin the esthetics of the surrounding parkland stolen from the taxpaying public.”
“Does anyone else think the artist’s rendering of the proposed Obama Presidential Center campus is ugly?” Deal asked.
