President Obama was so comfortable with his “body man” Reggie Love, that at one point he walked on him when he had a women in his bed.
In a new tell-all memoir, Love shares the story of when Obama entered his hotel room early one morning during the 2008 campaign.
Below is the story, released early by the Washington Post:
I remember the most peremptory of knocks, the sound of his voice talking even as he walked in. … He was charged up, going a mile a minute.
“Hey, Reggie, we need to go over the schedule” – at which point the senator finally noticed my friend in bed, covers pulled to her throat, mortified.
“Oh,” he said. “I apologize.” Then he turned around and hurried out.
“Was that?” she asked, face red.
“Senator Barack Obama,” I said sheepishly.
The New York Times reveals that Love has a hidden tattoo of the numbers 365 and 332, representing the electoral votes that Obama won his presidential election with in 2008 and 2012.
The Times adds that First Lady Michelle Obama told Love that she was happy they were “in places you can’t easily see.”
