President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama landed in New York on Monday for the United Nations General Assembly meeting.

President Barack Obama uses nicotine gum to beat the urge to smoke, but he also has a secret motivator — fear of First Lady Michelle Obama.

The President got caught Monday on a live microphone during an appearance at the UN General Assembly telling an attendee he quit smoking cigarettes because “I’m scared of my wife.”

Obama slipped about his reason for quitting while he chatted with Maina Kiai, the U.N. Special Rapporteur for rights to freedom of peaceful assembly.

Obama’s struggle to lose cigarettes has turned into a public pet peeve for him — he sneaked them during part of 2010, but reportedly quit by his 2011 annual check-up.

On the microphone, however, Obama said he had not “had a cigarette probably in six years.”

It was not the first time Obama got burned by a hot mic.

He was caught on tape in 2012 telling former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would be able to negotiate on missile defense after the election, and he trash-talked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with French President Nicholas Sarkozy while at the G20 Summit in 2011.
