Please, Michelle Obama, can’t Barack have just one cigarette? Your husband “looks tired, and he’s been awful on TV,” declares Paul Devlin at The Root. The “future of the free world depends on” a puff or two, as the Democratic front-runner needs to regain his cool—and quick. Devlin even notes a few side benefits in his open letter to the candidate’s better half.
“One little cigarette might even help Barack with white working-class voters! Think about the pure gold of ‘Barack outside smoking with the boys,’ like he surely used to do, talking sports with the friendly janitors who were having a smoke outside the University of Chicago Law School.”
