Barack and Michelle Obama have spent years trying to make it look like they are the loves of each other’s lives and that they have only ever had eyes for each other. That’s why it came as bad news to them recently when secrets from Barack’s sex life came back to haunt them.
The New York Post reported that throughout the 1980s, Barack dated a half-Dutch, half-Japanese woman named Sheila Jager, who recently spoke out to claim that Barack cheated on Michelle with her when he first started dating the future First Lady. In his book “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” David J. Garrow wrote that during a weekend away with Jager, Barack’s friends got a firsthand look at how the future president’s passion could get out of hand at times.
Garrow wrote that Barack and Jager “went back and forth, having sex, screaming yelling, having sex, screaming yelling,” to the point where those nearby had to move “to the other side of the porch just to be able to talk.”
Jager later told Garrow that Barack had “a deep-seated need to be loved and admired”, adding that they lived as “an island unto [them]selves” in which Obama would “compartmentalise his work and home life.” Barack ended up asking Jager to marry him, but she declined, saying, “not yet.” He eventually broke up with her when Barack became politically ambitious, as he was warned that dating a white woman would damage his voting pull in Chicago.
Though Barack began dating Michelle soon afterwards, his on-off relationship with Jager continued.
“Barack and Sheila had continued to see each other irregularly throughout the 1990-91 academic year, notwithstanding the deepening of Barack’s relationship with Michelle Robinson,” Garrow wrote.
Genevieve Cook, another ex of Barack’s, met him at a New Year’s Eve party in 1983. They went on a date two weeks later during which Barack cooked her dinner before they enjoyed a long night of passionate sex, Cook claims.
“Then we went and talked in his bedroom. And then I spent the night. It all felt very inevitable,” she said.
Their relationship was so sexual that Cook wrote a poem for him saying, “B. That’s for you. F’s for all the f***ing that we do.”
Michelle will undoubtedly hate that these women have come forward, as she is so egotistical that she wants the world to believe that she was the only woman Barack ever loved. However, these revelations make it clear that Barack had such little respect for Michelle that he cheated on her very early in their relationship. If he was cheating on her back then, we can only imagine what he has done in the decades since…
