VEN (LONDON) — In the latest Obama hagiography, Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, progressive author and Obama apologist David J. Garrow contends that before becoming President the effeminate Mr Obama — long-rumored to be a closeted gay man — was in fact, a drug-fueled lady-killer who only “thought” about having a gay relationship once — something that must come as a shock to former Body Man (i)Reggie Love and actor Kal Penn, both of whom had a very close relationship with Mr Obama, and both of whom were given vague, make-work jobs at the White House that provided them with essentially unlimited access to Mr Obama at all times.
Indeed, many will find the picture in Rising Star of Mr Obama with his purported Australian girlfriend Genevieve Cook — like almost everything else in Mr Obama’s overly manufactured life — just not quite right, as if Mr Obama’s neckless, over-large head had been hastily Photoshopped onto someone else’s — presumably heterosexual — body:
But the real question is why?
Why would someone think it necessary to write a book that tries so hard to make a case for Mr Obama’s heterosexuality, when Mr Obama himself has made a career out of doing just the opposite, and who — during his presidency — forcefully embraced the LGBTQ community, championed same-sex marriage, refused to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, and was a strong, unwavering advocate for gender neutrality in all things, even things as seemingly innocuous as bakeries and public restrooms.
So we are left to wonder — is something suddenly wrong with an effeminate Mr Obama also being . . . gay?
