Columnist: Michelle Obama Was Born a Man, President ‘Spent 4th of July at a Mosque’

Renew America columnist Reverend Austin Miles apparently cited facts from the National Report, a satirical Onion-like fake news outlet, in his recent piece asserting that Michelle Obama was born a man and her husband spent the Fourth of July in a mosque.

“The best 4th of July celebration of all was the one held on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol,” Miles writes. “And how good it was to see shared patriotism, something we need more of. While America was watching this tribute to our country, Obama, according to news reports, spent his 4th of July at a Mosque and invited Muslims to be with him at the White House.”

Those news reports? Straight from the satirical National Report.

Later in his piece, he writes, “What did Joan Rivers mean when she called Obama Gay and Michelle Trans on national TV?” he asks. “Actually that idea has been bandied about for some time. There will no doubt be more to come. It is interesting to Google the name, Michael LaVaughn Robinson, who was born in Chicago along with Michelle Obama.”

The name Michael LaVaughn Robinson comes from a prank meme started years ago, jokingly asserting that Michelle was born a man.

Yesterday, we also reported that Alex Jones took to the airwaves to assert that Michelle Obama “doesn’t look like any black woman” he’s ever known, and later referred to her as “the first tranny.”

Of course, this was all kicked off when Joan Rivers told a “reporter” that we already have “our first gay president” and referred to Michelle Obama as “a tranny.”

    Is it time yet to reveal that Austin Miles is a “false flag” operation designed to make America’s right wing look like a bunch of insane kooks and idiots? That’s right: He’s an undercover operative of the Democratic Party and he does *great* work. Thanks to Miles and others like him (Alex Jones, Darrell Issa, Allen West, Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin, et. al) the Tea Party movement and the Republican Party will be completely and hysterically discredited.

      It doesn’t take much to see that the right is filled with a bunch of kooks, facts speak for themselves, your conspiracy theory doesn’t hold water , try backing it up with PROOF.

        Humor impaired much?

      Anthony, I think your sarcasm was a bit too subtle. People are taking you seriously, rather than appreciating your commentary on the idiocy of the Tea Party and the Republicans at-large.

      I thought it was funny.

        As a lover of sarcasm in all its forms, on one blog, I was told recently that any sarcastic remark must be followed by this: /sarcasm.
        Apparently people cannot discern sarcastic remarks (in print–I presume because the tone of voice is not present) unless one points them out.
        Doesn’t that defeat the idea of sarcasm?

          As Editor-in-Chief for the National Report I will never use a sarcasm symbol. It has been debated for years now some piece of crap must be pushing the issue. Screw that stupid S.O.B. If he doesn’t get sarcasm… it isn’t my fault and I could careless for people who are literal text reader’s. Its an art, like magic. Would you ask a magician to reveal his secrets during a performance? —- NationalReport.net

      shhhhhhhhhh you dont have to tell every thing you know. LOL

    • I agree.

      The GOP/TP don’t need any help in running themselves out of office. The Democrats have done nothing to help ruin the view the US voters have of them. They have done it all themselves.

    The unfortunate part is that some Tea Baggers and neocons
    will really believe it and run with it.

      Some? A huge percentage of the no-forehead brigade.

    Mr. Miles should take his meds…..and where did he get that “Reverend” title? Anybody THIS delusional should be in a home.

    America has already had a gay President from 1857-1861 James Buchanan

    It seems as though the majority of RWNJs can do nothing without insulting some group of people, (I suspect that gays/transgenders DO vote,) yet they expect to be able to win elections doing so. Astonishing disconnect.
