On Monday, right-wing conspiracy theorist and Donald Trump supporter, Alex Jones, claimed that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama are demons.
“She is an abject, psychopathic, demon from hell that as soon as she gets into power is going to try to destroy the planet,” Jones said on his radio show. “She’s a frickin’ demon and she stinks and so does Obama. I go, like what? Sulfur. They smell like hell.”
At a Hillary Clinton campaign rally in Greensboro, North Carolina yesterday, President Obama addressed Jones’s insane allegations by checking himself for evidence of demonic possession. “I was reading the other day: There’s a guy on the radio — who, apparently Trump appears on his show frequently — said me and Hillary are demons,” Obama told the crowd. “Said we smell like sulfur. Ain’t that somethin’?”
To prove that, in fact, he wasn’t a demon, Obama took a big sniff of his wrist, gave an exaggerated pause, and broke down laughing. “C’mon people!” he said while regaining his composure. “Democracy does not work if you just say stuff like that. And apparently there are people who believe that stuff.” Evidently, dangerous crackpots like Jones believe that sulfur is found in powder form whenever demons manifest. According to Trump, Jones’s reputation is “amazing.” Yikes.
