Jerome Corsi, a radical right wing Tea Party author and conspiracy theorist, in this just-released video “reported” for his website, 1776 Nation, asks — and all but positively states that — President Obama is hiding that he’s gay or bisexual, and spends over ten minutes positing that a young Barack Obama may have been married to his Harvard Pakistani roommate.
Claiming Barack Obama for 20 years, before marrying Michelle, was wearing a wedding ring n his left hand, and offering the “evidence” that “Obama seems to be siting about on the guy’s lap,” in photos of Barack Obama and his unnamed roommate, Corsi says:
His Pakistani roommate, whom we also went to Pakistan with, from Occidental, seems to have been, take a look at pictures of he and his roommate together, Obama had all these roommate pictures, seems to be sitting about on the guy’s lap. I’ve not seen a lot of roommate pictures where two guys are that chummy. The issue is again, not an issue that we want to raise in terms of criticizing the homosexuality or the bisexuality or whatever Obama’s true inclinations are, the issue is why does he have to lie about this too.
Corsi also says, “Was he married to a guy, I mean, what’s the deal?,” and, “We don’t even know what this guy’s actual legal name is. Are there adoption papers?”
