Barack and Michelle Obama have kept a high profile since leaving the White House.

They have repeatedly popped off about Donald Trump and made sure to stay active in Washington.

But one photo had them back in the spotlight and led some to think the worst.

Barack Obama was recently photographed at Anchorage International Airport.

He was interacting with fans and having a good time, but one thing jumped out.

Obama was photographed without wearing a wedding band.

Radar Online reports:

Barack Obama was caught without his wife – and his wedding ring over the weekend, and now can exclusively reveal the ex-president didn’t have a care in the world!

“It was just him and his secret service,” fan Jolene Jackinsky told Radar of her encounter with Barack at the Anchorage International Airport in Alaska. “He was a very friendly, down to earth person.”

“There were no signs of distress or anger or anything,” she added.

“I didn’t notice until I looked at the pictures,” she noted of his missing wedding ring.

Some jumped to the conclusion that this meant the Obamas were having marital problems.

But is this really the case?

It is not true.

Gossip Cop reports:

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama aren’t having “marriage problems,” despite an unfounded report based on a photo of the former president without his wedding ring. Gossip Cop can exclusively clear up the situation…

… Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the Obamas aren’t having marital problems. Simply put, being at an airport alone and not wearing a wedding ring 24/7 aren’t signs of an impending divorce. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to debunk a bogus story about the former president and first lady breaking up.”

The Obamas have been no stranger to controversy since moving out of the White House in January.

Michelle Obama attacked Trump for rolling back her big government school lunch mandates.

And Barack Obama has repeatedly undermined Trump by criticizing him on foreign soil.

The Obamas have even been accused of setting up a shadow government by purchasing a multi-million dollar mansion in D.C. so Barack Obama can stay in touch with his political operation.

Critics have also maintained that the Deep State leaks from Obama loyalists are being carried out with his blessing.

If Obama wanted his people in the bureaucracy to cut it out, he could send out the word that his supporters should stop trying to undermine the new administration.

There is no shortage of new Obama scandals and misdeeds.

But any controversy about their marriage is not true.
