Barack Obama’s transgender nanny was a prostitute – Evie tells all

EVER hear of Barack Obama’s “transgender ex-nanny outcast”?

The AP has. It introduces the world to Evie. She looked after Barry Obama when he lived in Indonesia. Evie is a woman trapped in a man’s body. She tells a tale of brutality and hate in Indonesia. She says a trangendered friend of hers was killed on account of her sexuality. It made Evie toss sway her dresses and make-up and live as man in fear. Says Evie:

“I knew in my heart I was a woman, but I didn’t want to die like that. So I decided to just accept it. … I’ve been living like this, a man, ever since.”

Several longtime residents of Obama’s old Menteng neighborhood confirmed that Turdi had worked there as his nanny for two years, also caring for his baby sister Maya. When asked about the nanny, the White House had no comment.

The AP adds:
