The birthers are at it again. The conspiracy theorist gang who brought us news that Barack Obama is ineligible for the presidency because he is not a US-born citizen, have a new bombshell revelation: the First Lady is really a transsexual.
Their evidence? The marked lack of publicly available photographs of the couple’s children in their early years. This can obviously mean only one thing: The girls were adopted because Michelle Obama must be physically incapable of bearing children. What other reason could there be for that, except that she must have been born a man.
As a matter of fact, the First Family prefers to keep their daughters’ exposure to the media at a minimum. With nutballs like Jodi Swann on the loose, it’s easy to see why.
Swann, a blogger for Mr. Conservative presented her case in a recent article.
“Barack Obama and the First Lady have kept a tight lid on photos of their precious daughters being released by the press. Still, we have seen a startling lack of pictures from the early years of Malia and Sasha. Now we have evidence that this may not be due to the fact that Michelle has ordered the press not to release them, but that they do not exist.”
This latest rant was inspired by a blog post last year from the Fellowship of the Minds, in which a “Dr. Eowyn” claims he has uncovered proof that the girls were adopted, possibly from Morocco. Armed with a Google image search and a trial membership to Ancestry.com, the good doctor revealed there are no published baby pictures or birth records of the girls. When readers responded with several examples to the contrary, they were immediately dismissed as forgeries.
Based on that premise, it seems reasonable to conclude that Michelle Obama must have been born a man, according to Before It’s News, a conspiracy clearinghouse who, last week, revealed allegations that the First Lady was born in Chicago as Michael LaVaughn Robinson, the son of “well known cocaine dealer and union thug for Crime Lord/Mayor Richard J. Daley” and “a transient street prostitute who was diagnosed with the HIV virus in 1998.”
Many of the “facts” were lifted from a three-year old article at Christwire, a satirical website.
According to the theorists, “Michael Robinson” in 1982 accepted a scholarship to play middle linebacker for Oregon State, but suddenly dropped out of the school. (the story is supported by a obviously doctored photo of football players from the 1950s).
The report continues.
“Fellow teammates observed that Robinson could regularly be heard lamenting over how he is a ‘woman trapped inside a man’s body,’ and on January 13th, 1983, he underwent sex reassignment surgery at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine…The future First Lady then left Oregon State for Princeton University to “hide the shame of his new identity…Years later, he met Barry Obama Jr. a Kenyan immigrant who later became aware of Michelle’s ‘true’ identity…They subsequently married and adopted two children.”
The Tea Party News Network wasted no time jumping on the loony wagon when, last month, they claimed Joan Rivers (known for her support of the LGBT community) banned “tranny” Michelle from her funeral.
