A senior Japanese politician has marred Barack Obama’s official visit to Tokyo with bizarre claims that the president has cheated on his wife, Michelle, reports the Daily Mail.

Kazuyuki Hamada, who sits in the upper house of Japan’s parliament and earned his PhD in Washington, D.C., claims in a rambling blog that the president and first lady are heading for divorce, and that he has been using Secret Service agents to cover for his cheating.

According to the Daily Mail, Hamada is a longtime critic of the United States’ economic and foreign policies, but the unsubstantiated blog is bizarre even by his own standards.

He writes: “The biggest reason – of many – for the collapse of his reputation is his failed relationship with his wife.

“It is an open secret that the pair are already negotiating their divorce, and that they are waiting for his term in office to be over, and then they’ll separate.

“If you get his wife to talk, she’ll tell you: ‘The president is a pathological philanderer. He uses the Secret Service for this, and has used them to hide evidence that he’s a cheater.’ ”

Hamada has published almost 50 books, many packed with anti-America rhetoric.

His 2009 “Who is Obama?” includes the claim that the president “has done nothing for the American people.”

Other works include “The Dark Corridor: An American Underground Conspiracy of the Military-Industrial Complex” and “The Next World Order: The Rise and Development of America.”

Hamada’s official government biography states that after earning his PhD, he worked for the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank, and then for the non-partisan Congressional Research Service.

Along with other commentators, Hamada has been critical of the president’s decision to embark on the Japan visit without the first lady.

But Keith Koffler, a veteran White House correspondent, noted on his White House Dossier blog that the first lady has a Democratic National Committee fundraiser on Thursday.

President Obama arrived in Japan Wednesday for the first part of his weeklong Asia trip that will also take him to South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines.

He immediately reaffirmed his support for Japan in its row over the disputed Senkaku islands with China, after talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
