Barack Obama is no stranger to using controversy and division to get what he wants.
His presidency divided the nation more than any other – and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down in his private life.
And now Barack Obama said this one thing about his past that has everyone scratching their heads.
Barack Obama and radical liberal musician Bruce Springsteen just recently teamed up to produce a podcast.
And on the latest episode, Obama shared a story from his days in high school.
While playing basketball, a classmate supposedly called the future president a racial slur.
“And one time we got into a fight and he called me a c—,” Obama told 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 continued.
Who knows if Obama is even telling the truth, as there’s no way to corroborate his story.
But what the former President said next is what’s turning heads.
Obama went on to say he punched the boy 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 has been in the public eye for years now.
With all the soft ball interviews he’s been in, he never mentioned this story, so could it be that it never happened?
Obama has admitted that he has fabricated events in the past.
In his 1995 autobiography, Dreams of My Father, Obama recollected about an argument he had over black and Jewish culture with a girlfriend and New York.
The problem is, the argument never took place with the woman Obama was dating at the time.
With his history of sowing division and his penchant for lying, it’s entirely possible that this is just another made up fairytale from the mouth of Obama.
