What's offensive about Michaele and Tareq Salahi is that they think they can snow over the public into believing they are who they say they are. Here, we break down each of their outrageous lies, lawsuits, and bankruptcies.
By now, it's obvious to most that Michaele and Tareq Salahi are not who they say they are—successful, philanthropic socialites who run a winery. None of that is true. What's fascinating, though, is that the fame they so desperately wanted to achieve seems to be the very thing that makes their claims so easy to disprove. This couple is either very stupid or trapped in some sort of folie à deux, sharing—and believing in—the same delusions. The couple has been caught in so many lies that some are even questioning the authenticity of Michaele's recent claim that she has multiple sclerosis.
