Barack Obama’s close relationship with Reggie Love has been well documented. With the sudden announced departure of the president’s “body man”, rumors are once again circulating as to the cause of Love now leaving the confines of the Obama White House.
I found it remarkable the college-era scandal regarding Reggie Love, an individual who spends more time day in and day out with the President of the United States than even the president’s own wife, received so little attention. Yes, the photos would appear, and then be scrubbed, only to appear again with another site – only to disappear momentarily yet again.
Even for the mainstream media though, one would think the allure of youthful indescretion of a sexual nature would be too much to ignore. In the case of Reggie Love, apparently not. The media buried the story, and like so many other tales of questionable affiliations that permeate the past and present of President Obama, the Reggie Love scandal went away. Almost.
Here now are the photos in question that have been available since at least 2008. Reggie Love himself acknowledged them in an offhand way when speaking of “mistakes” he made while as a college student during an interview given to the New York Times in 2008. The Times of course, did nothing to then follow up on what mistakes the man responsible for the day to day care of then-presidential candidate Barack Obama was speaking of. And even as Mr. Love then became perhaps the most intimate member of Barack Obama’s White House inner circle, did any mainstream media do any semblance of due diligence on Reggie Love.
Perhaps the photos suggest just what Mr. Love said – youthful indescretion. A “mistake”. Too much alcohol – too little sound judgement. Or, perhaps they suggest something more regarding Love’s character – and his relationship to President Barack Obama, which in turn, may have played a significant part in Reggie Love’s recent and swift departure from the Obama White House.
For those who have not seen the photos – here they are. CONTENT WARNING:
