This explains a great deal and may shed light on the rumor that Michelle Obama is truly named “Mike.”
Former president Barack Obama’s fantasies about having sexual relations with men continue to surface in interviews with his former biographer, such as his request that the biographer, David Garrow, not read long letters to his ex-girlfriend from his time at Harvard Law School.
Garrow, who had a falling out with Obama prior to the publication of his 2017 book “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” has been in the news recently. He discusses their private, personal interactions, which vary from the Democrat’s alleged fabrication of his well-known memoirs to his letters revealing his homoerotic tendencies to his then-girlfriend Sheila Miyoshi Jager.
Despite the public’s interest in Garrow’s claims about Obama’s sexual preferences, he believes they do not merit the scrutiny many have given the former president, contending that it is normal for everyone to harbor secret desires.
“I’m a historian, not a psychotherapist, but, you know, I’m 70 years old. My sense of the world is that, you know, a large majority of humanity has fantasy lives,” Garrow declared. “So, I don’t I don’t find that passage in any way scandalous. It’s sort of representative of humanity.”
“Barack made it clear to me that he hoped I would never read them, I can put it that way. I think if the letters to Sheila ever become public, I think that will be a signal event,” Garrow relayed to Fox News. “Those letters would detail just how extremely serious and intense a relationship that was, and that it continued on and off into his Harvard Law School years.”
Prior to the publication of “Rising Star,” Garrow had access to a second letter sent by the future president to Alex McNear while he was still an undergraduate at Occidental College. One paragraph was initially omitted, and Garrow was unable to remark on the deletion until after the book was published.
“Alex sold those letters to Emory [University]. Alex had let me read all of the letters except this one paragraph that she redacted and just said, ‘It’s about homosexuality,’” Garrow revealed. “So, I had one of my oldest friends, Harvey Klehr, who has been a professor at Emory his whole life. I had Harvey go to the Emory archives and Harvey copied out the missing paragraph by hand, pencil and paper.”
According to the Tablet interview, “Barack writes to Alex about how he repeatedly fantasizes about making love to men,” which was mentioned in Garrow’s original edition of “Rising Star” but didn’t garner much attention at the time. Only now, after reflecting on his time spent near Obama, has Garrow brought this issue to attention.
According to Garrow, Obama is “insecure” and urgently desires to feel historically significant.
“He does need to think of himself as victorious, successful,” Garrow explained. “This is perhaps the central aspect of his political personality that people have to appreciate. There’s an inability to accept loss, accept defeat.”
The Daily Mail reports that Obama continued to see Jager while he was dating Michelle. Obama has had his sights set on the presidency since 1987, according to Jager, who is cited in Garrow’s book, but he decided to marry Michelle in order to “fully identify as African American.”
“I remember very clearly when this transformation happened, and I remember very specifically that by 1987, about a year into our relationship, he already had his sights on becoming president,” Jager said.
