Snore-y and Stinky

Michelle Obama, interviewed by Tonya Lewis Lee in Glamour magazine, speaks about her husband Barack Obama and their daughters:
We have this ritual in the morning. They come in my bed, and if Dad isn't there—because he's too snore-y and stinky, they don't want to ever get into bed with him.
Apparently Barack Obama, when asleep, behaves like the miller in Chaucer's Reeve's Tale:
This millere hath so wisely bibbed ale
That as an hors he snorteth in his sleep,
Ne of his tayl bihynde he took no keep.
Translated by J.U. Nicolson:
This miller had so roundly bibbed his ale
That, like a horse, he snorted in his sleep,
While of his tail behind he kept no keep.
