Former Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, said former President Barack Obama is “scared to death” of his wife and former first lady Michelle Obama.

In an interview with Politico, Boehner was asked whether he ever saw Obama smoke a cigarette.

“Oh no. No no no,” he said. “He's scared to death of his wife. Scared. To. Death.”

According to Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia had a big part in the president’s decision to quit smoking.

Obama said in 2013 that the reason he hadn’t smoked a cigarette in six years was because he was “scared of my wife.”
