Obama Admits Heavy Drinking, Drug Problems As An ‘Adolescent’ In Rare Video Footage
In light of the recent attacks on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over his alleged drinking in high school and his having thrown ice at someone in a bar, a rare video clip of then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama has surfaced that shows the 40-year-old admitting that while he was a “young boy” and an “adolescent” he drank “a six-pack in an hour” in between classes, got in fights, was a “thug,” and used illegal drugs.
The February 2001 biographical interview was made by The History Makers, who interviewed Obama about everything from his favorite color to describing his adolescent behavior to defining what he wanted his legacy to be.
While discussing his adolescent behavior, Obama said, “I was a thug for a big part of my growing up,” adding that he was “mischievous.”
“I didn’t take school that seriously,” Obama continued. “I got into fights. I drank and did —and consumed substances that weren’t always legal.”
