Jermaine Jackson: Michael Was Responsible For President Obama Being Elected
President Obama was only elected as the President of the United States because in 1993 Michael Jackson introduced the world to Oprah Winfrey. According to brother Jermaine Jackson it was during that interview that brother Michael introduced Oprah to the United States and 90 countries around the world.
As Jermaine tells the Independent:
“Michael invited her [to Neverland] and that was the moment that put her in 90 countries around the world and made her successful.”
He then adds:
“What did she do with that success? She put it behind Obama.”
The interview comes as Jermaine and the “Jackson 4” have just begun a new tour which could explain his publicity grabbing choice of words.
Jermaine also claimed that British tabloids coined the term “Wacko Jacko” and he says the denied “Michael’s humanity. … The question is why didn’t they understand him while he was here?”
Oprah was already making a name for herself before the Michael Jackson interview but it’s interesting hear Jermaine’s take on why President Obama is in office.
