Michelle Obama’s having a hell of a time

The Obamas put on the glitz last night for the annual Congressional Hispanic Caucus gala, and the president used the opportunity to beg for Hispanic votes.

Ready to call it a night, a bored Obama half-heartedly tries to drag his wife off the stage.

Sure, she looks like she’s having a ball. But she’s crying inside:

Michelle Obama thinks being America’s First Lady is ‘hell’, Carla Bruni reveals today in a wildly indiscreet book.

Miss Bruni divulges that Mrs Obama replied when asked about her position as the U.S. president’s wife: ‘Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!’

Details of the private conversation, which took place at the White House during an official visit by Nicolas Sarkozy last March, emerged in Carla And The Ambitious, a book written in collaboration with Miss Bruni.

I’m not sure I believe MO confided in Bruni. She clearly never trusted her.
