Obama’s Former Body Man, Reggie Love, Claims President was doing This When Bin Laden was Killed (+video)

On the day Navy SEALs were raiding Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan and killing the 9/11 mastermind, President Obama didn’t spend every moment in the White House situation room. Instead, the commander in chief played cards in a private dining room that day, too — about 15 games of spades, in fact, his former personal assistant Reggie Love recently told a UCLA forum.

“Most people were like down in the Situation Room and [Obama] was like, ‘I’m not going to be down there, I can’t watch this entire thing,’” Love recalled during a Q&A at an Artists & Athletes Alliance event.


Instead, Love said he, Obama, White House photographer Pete Souza, and staffer Marvin Nicholson got together in a nearby private dining room and “must have played 15 games of spades” (and were interrupted by a steady stream of dispatches, according to UCLA Today).

Also interesting was Love’s description of how that all-important day was spent: Love said Obama usually worked half days on weekends, but on the day of the raid—Sunday, May 1, 2011—he and Obama spent the entire day at the White House “until almost midnight.”

Love added that when he left the White House later that night, after the president delivered news of bin Laden’s death, “there were thousands of people out on Pennsylvania Avenue, people crying and cheering. It was a very powerful, moving day.”

    What the heck is a ” Body man ” ??????

    Why would O want to be in the situation room, he isn’t in the White House to lead…he is the Democrats Puppet and Human Race Card to get their agendas passed in Washington, and if you say no, hell no…you must be a racist. Surely no one in their right mind assumed that O was elected based on his Managerial skills, leadership skills!

    O serves the Democrats in two ways…he is their race card in the flesh, and he is a community organizer…so he can get out the votes!

    So it doesn’t surprise me that O wasn’t in the situation room, or for that matter even in the White House…why else do you think O is off vacationing so much. or playing golf?? He isn’t needed to run things…just be the face of the democrats!

    The Democrats thought they had this with Billy Boy Clinton, but he couldn’t keep his thing inside his pants long enough to keep the public’s interest! After Bush senior put in place all the good that Clinton was able to benefit or ride on economically….the party was over so they started impeachment procedures!

    Where was Obama? The truth is, his assistants took him to another room to teach him how to tie his shoe.

    Obama arrogantly considers himself an emperor who is to be pampered, cosseted, fawned over, and allowed to dream away his life on whatever pursuit fits his fancy at the moment. Actually having to earn a living doing the job he was hired to do is repugnant to him. Add this calvier and apathetic attitude to the very long list of dereliction of duty and high treason that Obama has racked up. He must be held to the harshed penalty according to law, even exile and deportation or death.

    Obummer wasn’t there because he could not stand to watch his Muslim ancestor/hero get shot.
    Reggie, you spoke against your master! How dare you? You are now in deep ka ka and will face the full force of this government. I feel for you, buddy.
