"He very much was within sort of the gay community," Pope said. "And we knew Barry as just common knowledge that girls were never anything that he ever was interested in ... He would get with these older white gay men, and this is how we just pretty much had the impression that that's how he was procuring his cocaine. In other words, he was having sex with these older white guys and that's how he was getting this cocaine to be able to freebase."
If this was the first of this sort of thing I'd heard about Obama, I'd just dismiss it as the claims of a publicity-seeking loon, as I first did when I heard Larry Sinclair's claims about having had sex with Obama in the back of a limo. But enough of these claims have piled up that a certain critical mass has been reached, and they have acquired a certain credibility through sheer volume.
I'm not saying what Pope said is necessarily true. But the situation is a little reminiscent of Paula Jones and Bill Clinton. Jones said Clinton had some state troopers summon her to his hotel room, then dropped his trousers and asked for oral sex. Ordinarily, when it's the word of a nonentity like Jones against that of the President, the natural assumption is that the President must be telling the truth. But enough similar accusations had piled up around Clinton by that point that it was hard not to believe Jones.
If what Pope is saying is true, and Obama used to have sex in exchange for cocaine, then he was, by definition, a crack whore.
