Hell Is 1600 Pennyslvania Avenue?

A new biography of French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy quotes Michelle Obama as saying life in the White House is “hell” and that she “can’t stand it.”

NBC’s Mark Knoller reports the First Lady’s office has not responded to requests for comment on the quote, but that a spokesman for the U.S. embassy in Paris issued a statement to the effect that Mrs. Obama “never said” the words attributed to her in the book.

The spokesman also said “Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy distances herself completely from the contents of the book.”
