A bombshell new biography is causing major controversy. David Garrow, a Pultizer Prize-winning author and contributor to the New York Times just released “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama.”

In it, Garrow claims that as a young man, Obama considered being homosexual!

As The Daily Caller reports, the details are shared about Obama’s close relationship with Lawrence Goldyn, an openly gay assistant professor at Occidental College:

“Goldyn made a huge impact on Barry Obama,” Garrow wrote in the book. “Almost a quarter century later, asked about his understanding of gay issues, Obama enthusiastically said, ‘my favorite professor my first year in college was one of the first openly gay people that I knew…He was a terrific guy” with whom Obama developed a ‘friendship beyond the classroom.’”

The biographer added, “Goldyn years later would remember that Obama ‘was not fearful of being associated with me’ in terms of ‘talking socially’ and ‘learning from me’ after as well as in class.”

“Three years later, Obama wrote somewhat elusively to his first intimate girlfriend that he had thought about and considered gayness, but ultimately had decided that a same-sex relationship would be less challenging and demanding than developing one with the opposite sex,” Garrow wrote. “But there is no doubting that Goldyn gave eighteen-year-old Barry a vastly more positive and uplifting image of gay identity and self-confidence than he had known in Honolulu.”

Garrow defended his reporting, but added, “I think anyone and everyone, no matter what their role in life deserves a certain basic degree of privacy, in that context.”

True or not, this is a good reminder of how the biased liberal media spent eight years protecting Obama. Still after leaving the White House, there are many details about Obama’s background that were never answered. That is in stark contrast to the obsessive scrutiny President Trump has experienced on a daily basis ever since he started running for the White House.

Garrow won the Pulitzer Prize for his well-received biography of Martin Luther King, Jr.
