Former President Barack Obama once wrote to his ex-girlfriend that he fantasized about having sexual relations with other men, according to biographer David Garrow.
Obama reportedly revealed his homosexual fantasies in a letter to his girlfriend, Garrow told Tablet magazine.
Unsurprisingly, the letter has been redacted and is currently in the possession of Emory University, according to Garrow.
Garrow told Tablet that the ex-girlfriend provided a copy of the letter; however, one paragraph had been redacted.
The former president’s ex-girlfriend said the redacted paragraph was about “homosexuality.”
“Sometime, right about when Rising Star came out, Alex indirectly sold the original, sold those letters, and they ended up at Emory,” Garrow told Tablet while discussing his 2017 biography of Obama, “Rising Star.”
“So Emory put out a press release saying, ‘We’ve gotten these rare letters by Barack Obama.'”
“And no mention of this paragraph that was too sensitive. None of the papers mentioned it. Emory didn’t mention it.”
“So I emailed Harvey [Klehr], said, ‘Go to the Emory archives.’ He’s spent his whole life at Emory, but they won’t let him take pictures,” Garrow said later in the interview.
“So Harvey has to sit there with a pencil and copy out the graph where Barack writes to Alex about how he repeatedly fantasizes about making love to men.”
As The Daily Mail reported: “He’s not normal – as in not a normal politician or a normal human being,” Garrow said, after offering an anecdote that claimed Obama’s lawyer, his go-between while he was writing his book, once advised him not to ask the ex-president about his father – a black Kenyan who met Obama’s white mother at the University of Hawaii.
Referenced in the title of Obama’s book, the late Barack Hussein Obama played a major part in Obama’s embracement of ‘Black racial consciousness’ in the 2004 narrative – which Garrow again Wednesday called a work of fiction.
“It does go back to ‘Dreams’ being a work of fiction, that the absence of an actual personal story makes him need to compose one,” Garrow – who has also penned books about Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement – continued.
“For every time he says, ‘Oh, I spent years reading the history of the civil rights movement,” the skeptical historiographer said of the claims aired by Obama in the book, which sold only a modest 9,000 copies at the time of its release, but has since experienced a multimillion dollar resurgence since the politician’s presidency.
