Republicans say Obama smells like demon, so he sniffs himself to make sure
President Barack Obama took just a moment while on the campaign trail for Hillary Clinton to reassure everyone that he is not, in fact, a demon.
The president was responding to a conspiracy theory put forward by right-wing radio host Alex Jones that both he and Clinton are demons.
“There’s a guy on the radio who apparently … said me and Hillary are demons,” Obama told the crowd on Tuesday at Greensboro, North Carolina. “Said we smell like sulfur. Ain’t that something!”
He then paused to sniff his wrist to check and see if he did smell like sulfur. He didn’t.
On Monday, Jones put forward the theory that Clinton and Obama were demons, saying, “I’m told her and Obama just stink, stink, stink, stink. You can’t wash that evil off, man. People say … Obama and Hillary both smell like sulfur.”
Jones called Clinton a “psychopathic demon from hell” who is “so dark,” “so evil,” and “so possessed,” while he claimed that Obama was a demon because flies could be seen landing on him. He claimed that he had sources who said that both of them smelled “like hell.”
But on Tuesday, Obama seemed to laugh off the theory.
“I mean, come on people,” Obama said. “Democracy does not work if you just say stuff like that.”
