The French go about things differently than we do here in the land of cheese fries and salt that is America. They eat foods we find disgusting (like fries without cheese), they like the films of Jerry Lewis more than any fan of comedy should, and they can claim President Obama is having an affair with Beyoncé without FBI agents and Jay Z’s bodyguards storming their doors. The following claim comes from French photographer Pascal Rostain, who told “highly reputable French newspaper Le Figaro” that Bey and ‘Bama are boning.
You know, at this time, the United States, there is something big that is happening… Besides, it’ll go out tomorrow in the Washington Post, we can not say that it is the gutter press [reporting on an] alleged affair between President Barack Obama and Beyoncé. I can assure you that the world will talk about it…There are [photographs and] television images of the Obamas [in which they are] a little distant… It is legitimate to ask questions. We found the same thing [in images] between [French President François] Holland and [First Lady] Trierweiler. Afterwards, there was the rumor. [Same] for Obama with Beyonce, for example. Just because it’s a rumor doesn’t mean that one should not go into the field to check. We should not forget Marilyn [Monroe] or Monica Lewinsky. You can be the president of the first world power — that doesn’t make you any less a man. ” (Via)
The Washington Post has already released a “hahahahaha, no” statement on the rumors:
That’s “definitely not true,” [said] Post spokesperson Kris Coratti. (Via)
That’s what THEY want you to think. He put a ring on it…
…then took it away. THANKS OBAMA.
