Here they go still trying to create a fire where there is none.

New revelations have come to light about our former President having another serious love before Michelle Obama. 

According to “Rising Star” written by David J. Garrow, Sheila Miyoshi Jager who was almost entirely omitted from Obama’s own biography, Dreams of My Father, was proposed to twice before he met the former First Lady and kept on seeing her for the first year of his relationship with Michelle 

But Garrow, Jager played a huge role in Obama’s formative years. So much so that even after Barack met Michelle, he kept seeing Jager on and off for at least a year, the book claims.

The couple were very much in love in the mid 1980s and were living together in Chicago, according to Jager, who described them as being ‘an island unto ourselves.’

Their relationship quickly progressed and in the winter of 1986, while visiting his girlfriend’s parents, Barack popped the question, Jager told Garrow. 

But Jager’s parents were concerned that she was too young, Jager was 23 and Obama was 25  and refused his advances.

Now 53, Jager, an associate professor and director of the East Asian program at Oberlin College in Ohio, told Garrow that Obama became ‘so very ambitious very suddenly.’

But Obama believed he needed to ‘fully identify as African American’ to fulfill his political ambitions and believed that having a non-black spouse could damage his prospects, according to the book.

His ambitions reportedly put pressure on Obama’s relationship with Jager who is of Dutch and Japanese heritage.

By the time Obama was leaving for Harvard Law School, proposed to her for a second time, asking her to join him in Harvard.

Jager said “No.”

And with that the couple split. But Garrow claims that Jager and Obama continued to see each other on and off, eventhough he had met Michelle and they quickly fell for each other and had began dating.

After Barack and Michelle married in 1992, Jager says that they stopped seeing each other and their contact was limited to the odd letter or phone call.

Another biography by Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist David Maraniss detailed his earlier relationships with white women Alexandra McNear and Genevieve Cook.

Cook said he would confide in her that he felt like an ‘imposter’ as there was ‘hardly a black bone in his body’.

Cook said she told him he ‘needed to go black’ (to date a black woman), whereas he countered that he would never find a black woman ‘he would feel truly comfortable with’. 

Haven’t we all had past relationships and why is all this news now? The Obamas have left the building and they still will not leave them alone.

And on Jager and her parents saying “she was too young,” we all know the real reason.

But last and not least, he married the perfect Wife, Mother and FLOTUS. There will never be another woman that can hold a candle to Mrs. Obama.

Instead of writing about our former President’s past relationships, why don’t you ask why Melania Trump liked a negative tweet about her relationship with 45.


And yes it was the real Mrs Trump’s Twitter account!
