Barack Obama played golf with a reddened eye and a bandaged hand on Friday at the exclusive Vineyards Club, adding to the enigma surrounding the death of Tafari Campbell, his friend and personal chef.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama played tennis while former President Barack Obama played golf. The left eye of Barack Obama has a visible contusion, also known as a “black eye,” and his hand is bandaged. Since it is known that the former president previously wrapped his hand to play golf, there is less ambiguity.
Despite this, the images of him fueled rumors about the former president’s whereabouts at the time of Campbell’s death.
Democrats keep telling me that Obama has bandaged his hand to golf before, ok, what about this black eye though? pic.twitter.com/2Np2EF6fgP

Happening Now: just days after his personal chef and friend died in a very mysterious paddle boarding accident, Barack Obama appears to have injured fingers and a black eye.
We still don’t know who the other person was and Obama loves paddle boarding. I think we can all… pic.twitter.com/trqiSl9LSH

“[J]ust days after his personal chef and friend died in a very mysterious paddle boarding accident, Barack Obama appears to have injured fingers and a black eye,” Travis from Flint remarked. “We still don’t know who the other person was and Obama loves paddle boarding. I think we can all guess what happened at this point!”
Unfortunately, it is unclear whether Barack Obama played a role in the circumstances surrounding Campbell’s demise.
Other sources confirmed that Barack Obama was in fact on Martha’s Vineyard when he passed away, contradicting earlier reports to the contrary.
The police have fueled rumors by concealing the reason for the 911 call, altering the location of the call, and refusing to identify the alleged female caller and a second paddleboarder.
Last Sunday evening, Tafari, 45, was injured while paddleboarding on the Great Edgartown Pond. At 7:46 p.m., a 911 call described his fall and subsequent struggle to regain his footing. The contact was not provided a reason, but it was recorded in the Edgartown Police Department’s logs. However, all other communications from the same evening were explained in detail.
The man who was paddleboarding with the Obamas’ personal chef when he perished near their Martha’s Vineyard home, according to authorities, made desperate attempts to save him.
The unidentified second paddleboarder attempted to swim to Tafari Campbell, 45, but “did not reach him in time,” according to a statement released by the Massachusetts State Police and reported by MassLive.
According to the report, the person who witnessed Campbell losing his equilibrium and plunging into the water swam to shore, alerted someone, and that individual called 911.
On Martha’s Vineyard, dispatchers also noted that the initial 911 call was placed by a woman on a yacht at 8:18 p.m., possibly searching for Campbell.
It is currently unknown who this woman was and if Campbell was traveling with her.
Wilson’s Landing, a paddleboard launch site located approximately two miles from the Obamas’ residence in Turkeyland Cove, is listed as the call’s source, contradicting the Massachusetts State Police’s claim that the initial call originated from there.
Several publications have stated that Barack Obama is well-known for his passion for paddleboarding. Obama, for instance, wore a $84 shark-repellent ankle band while paddleboarding in Hawaii in 2022 while under Secret Service protection.
Although no one has specifically accused Barack Obama of malfeasance, there are concerns about what the former president knew about Campbell’s death and when.
