AS his popularity plummets to historic lows and his presidential legacy is in tatters, BARACK OBAMA has suffered a shocking secret meltdown.
White House insiders say the deeply depressed Commander-in-Chief is hardly eating or sleeping, hasn’t talked to First Lady Michelle, 49, in weeks and is convinced everyone hates him!
“Barack is shattered that his presidency and his life are in free-fall,” says a source.
“He can’t believe the American public has turned on him so viciously, mainly because of the Obamacare disaster. No one has been able to help him.
“Michelle has tried everything she can to comfort him, but he just snaps, ‘Go away. Leave me alone.’
“Barack watches news reports, reads the papers and sees the shocking poll results – and he loses it.
“When he saw one report that his approval rating had plummeted to a staggeringly low 37 percent, he had a total meltdown.
“He buried his head in his hands, saying, ‘Everybody hates me.’ When he raised his head, his eyes were glistening with tears.
“He’s lost the confidence and affection of the public that he so desperately needs to go on with the hardest job in the world.
A recent CBS poll said the 52-year-old President has a lower job approval rating than Toronto Mayor Rob Ford – who admitted to smoking crack and is still five points HIGHER than Obama!
“That was the last straw for Barack,” says the insider. “He was mortified and humiliated.”
