A deplorable has written an “unauthorized biography” that sounds like fiction and claims that former President Barack Obama regularly snorted cocaine and was a man about town.


Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer David Garrow, claims that before Obama rose to fame, he was once a drug-fueled, partying college student.

Genevieve Cook, an Aussie three years his senior, wrote the then-22-year-old a poem to commemorate their tryst. It included this line: “B. That’s for you. F’s for all the fucking that we do,” the International Business Times reports.


Cook claimed that she met Obama at a party in 1983 and they slept together within days of meeting.

“Sexually he really wasn’t very imaginative but he was comfortable. He was no kind of shrinking ‘can’t handle it, this is invasive’ or ‘I’m timid’ in any way—he was quite earthy,” Cook reportedly said.

Gross. This is our former president this woman is talking about. I expect this kind of ridiculousness from our current president, but Barack? Naw, son.

The book also claims that before meeting Michelle, Obama was quite the player and that even after getting into a relationship with the former first lady, Barry cheated on her with Sheila Miyoshi Jager, now a college professor, who told Garrow that she “always felt bad” about their trysts.


The trashy book of trashiness also claims that young Barry would do “lots of cocaine.” Obama has never denied that as a teen, he smoked a little pot and dabbled in cocaine.

“It was reflective of the struggles and confusion of a teenage boy,” he said at a meeting of the American Society of Magazine Editors in 1996, IBT reports. “Teenage boys are frequently confused.”
