It’s time to call the paddywagon for Alex Jones!

Though Jones is known for saying the most outrageous drivel imaginable, his recent spew may be the worst yet.

Jones got particularly worked up this week and then alleged that Michelle Obama is actually a man, or rather that Michelle was a man who transitioned into being female, a.k.a., a trans individual.

Jones’ evidence for such a strong allegation? According to the totally-not-crazy conspiracist, Michelle’s daughters don’t really resemble her (has he SEEN the Obama girls?!). That’s it. Oh, and the fact that Jones just has a bad feeling about the Obama family after that whole “refusing to be sweared into office on a bible” thing that didn’t happen.

“I really think — her daughters don’t look like her — I really think this is some weird hoax they did again. “just like he didn’t get sworn in on the Bible, it was the Quran. All this weirdness, I mean, I used to laugh at this stuff, but man, it’s all about rubbing our noses in it. I think it’s all an arranged marriage, it’s all completely fake and it’s this big sick joke because he’s obsessed with transgender, just like some weird cult or something. I think Michelle Obama is a man. I really do. I really do. I believe it.”

Jones also alleged that Joan Rivers was murdered by the Obama family for calling Michelle a “tranny,” an insulting slur which is used to refer to trans women.

“Don’t forget, the famous comedienne Joan Rivers said, ‘Of course everyone knows she’s a tranny.’ She’s dead serious, ‘She’s a man.’ Deader than a doornail in a routine operation where basically she had fire poured down her throat and was a fire-breathing goblin. Dead on arrival. Shoot your mouth off, honey, you will die.”

With the national discourse focusing closely on trans rights and issues, it is only fitting that Jones fix his crazy-eyed glare on trans men and women as his new target. Jones thinks he is bestowing a deep insult on the Obama family for alleging that Michelle was born a man, but unless you think that trans individuals are undesirable or “wrong,” the allegations are lies, not insults.
