Barack Obama was one of America’s most controversial and divisive Presidents.
Obama’s ability to generate controversy has extended to his post-Presidential life.
And Barack Obama admitted to something about his past that had everyone asking this question.
Barack Obama recently started a podcast with aging liberal rock star Bruce Springsteen.
On the most recent episode, Obama described an event in his life back in high school where a boy he played basketball with supposedly called him a racial slur.
“And one time we got into a fight and he called me a c—,” Obama recounted to Springsteen, “Now first of all, ain’t no c—s in Hawaii, right?”
“It’s one of those things that – where he might not even known what a c— was, what he knew was, ‘I can hurt you by saying this,’” Obama added.
Obama then said he punched the boy in the face and broke his nose.
“And I remember I popped him in the face and broke his nose. And we were in the locker room,” Obama concluded.
Obama ran for office multiple times.
Obama has published multiple books.
And in all the interviews he’s given and books he’s written, Obama has never mentioned this story before, which leads some to ask if Obama is making all this up.
Obama has fabricated events before, in his book where he admitted that in Dreams of My Father – his 1995 autobiography – Obama used a composite to describe his girlfriend in New York and that an argument they had over black and Jewish culture never took place with the woman Obama claimed he was actually dating at the time.
This story of Obama bloodying a kid’s nose because the kid crossed the line with an ugly racial slur could just be another one of Obama’s fantasy composites.
