Barack Obama Quit Smoking Because He’s ‘Scared of His Wife’

For many, Barack and Michelle Obama are the prototype of a perfect relationship. Both are successful in their own right, parents to two doting girls and seemingly more in live than ever. However, if Obama’s latest remarks are any indication, the two have butted heads plenty of times in their 20+ year union.

During his NYC visit to the United Nations, CNN cameras caught the POTUS in conversation with an official about cigarette use. When asked about his own struggles to quit, Obama credits his wife for helping him kick the dirty habit.

“That’s because I’m scared of my wife,” he playfully said, adding that’s it’s been years since his last one.

We love it when our FLOTUS takes charge!
