Obama biographer who revealed ex-president’s ‘gay fantasies’ and ‘cheating’ behind Michelle’s back brands him ‘as insecure douche and warns ‘lazy’ ex-leader would be ‘terrible’ on SCOTUS
Sitting down for a lengthy Q&A with Tablet, historian David Garrow also renewed claims Obama’s first memoir was fabricated – slamming it as ‘fictionalized’ and an attempt at ‘inventing a racial identity struggle that never happened’. Previously, in the 1,078-page biography Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama , Garrow unmasked how a young Obama considered a gay relationship while at college, and cheated on Michelle with his ex during their first year of dating. It also revealed how the ex-head of state – has made a career from speaking engagements and several book deals – once called America a ‘racist society’ in an unpublished manuscript from his days at Harvard Law. Already aired for some six years, Garrow, 70, addressed many of these revelations Wednesday in the 16,000 word interview, while also offering some new insight on the man commonly thought to be the Democratic Party’s most influential figure.
