Former President Barack Obama allegedly wrote to an old girlfriend about his sexual fantasies involving other men.
In a lengthy interview with Jewish lifestyle magazine Tablet, historian David Garrow, who is the author of 2017’s “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” made several shocking claims about the 44th President.
In a section of 16,000 word Q&A called “All The President’s Women,” Garrow goes into detail about Obama’s three serious girlfriend’s before he settled down with Michelle in 1992.
The stunning claim about Obama’s desires comes from letters he wrote to former college girlfriend Alexandra McNear, which were acquired by Emory University in 2017.
NEW: Former President Barack Obama once told his ex-girlfriend that he “repeatedly fantasizes about making love to men” according to biographer David Garro.
The comments by Obama were allegedly written in a letter to his girlfriend at the time.

According to the school’s press release, “the nine letters in Emory’s collection pick up on Sept. 26, 1982, when both are back in classes at their respective schools on opposite coasts, and continue through April 14, 1984, when their romance has cooled to friendship and Obama has finished college.”
Garrow said McNear sold the letters to pay for her mother’s declining health condition, and has “a very clear memory” about Alex being “embarrassed” about making the cash grab.
The author said that in addition to the money, he thought McNear “wanted to have her role” as Obama’s collegiate girlfriend “known.”

“So when Alex showed me the letters from Barack, she redacted one paragraph in one of them and just said, ‘It’s about homosexuality,’” Garrow told the outlet.
“And then sometime, right about when Rising Star came out, Alex indirectly sold the original, sold those letters, and they ended up at Emory.”
He said that the University announced that they had acquired Obama’s letters, but buried the part about his reported homosexual desires.
“And no mention of this paragraph that was too sensitive,” Garrow stated. “None of the papers mentioned it. Emory didn’t mention it.”
He contacted his longtime friend Harvey Klehr, a decades long professor of politics and history at the University, and asked him to check out the letters.

“I emailed Harvey, said, “Go to the Emory archives.” He’s spent his whole life at Emory, but they won’t let him take pictures,” Garrow remarked.
“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.”
The interview started out with a story about the reason Obama and former flame Sheila Miyoshi Jager broke up and their widely varying accounts.

Jager told Garrow that after the former President proposed to her twice and was rejected, she broke up with him over his refusal to condemn antisemitism.
Her account of their relationship’s demise directly counter’s what Obama described in his first memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” which he said was due to his embrace of “Black racial consciousness.”
Garrow also charged that Obama’s recollections from his own book were often fabricated.
“It’s so inaccurate, whether about the dynamics among the guys in Hawaii or what’s going on in the community group on the far South Side [of Chicago],” he told Tablet magazine.
“He wants people to believe his story. For me to conclude that ‘Dreams from My Father’ was historical fiction — oh God, did that infuriate him.”
“He doesn’t want the writerliness challenged,” Garrow remarked. “It’s my story and I’m sticking to it. The book is so fictionalized.”
Garrow also accused Obama of being “just as insecure” as he believes former President Donald Trump to be.
“He has no interest in building the Democratic Party as an institution,” he commented. “I think that’s obvious.”
Garrow doesn’t think Obama has “truly deep, meaningful policy commitments” to the Democrats, beyond his purported “need to feel and to be perceived as victorious, as triumphant.”
“I’ve sometimes said to people that I think Barack is actually just as insecure as Trump, but in ways that are not readily perceived by the vast majority of people,” he concluded. “I think that’s probably my most basic takeaway.”
