You may recall how a few weeks ago Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine came out in support of hilarious cartoon villain Rick Santorum, because he did too many drugs back in the day or something. But now he’s doubling down on his wingnuttery by basically proclaiming himself a birther long after the birther train has left the station (I mean, Donald Trump even let this go months ago).
“I have a lot of questions about him but certainly not where he was born,” Mustaine said in an interview this week. “I know he was born somewhere else than America.” When the person interviewed pressed him for further details, Mustaine responded, “How come he was invisible until he became whatever he was in Illinois?”
Now, the key part in this of course is Mustaine claiming to “know” that Obama wasn’t born here — and I’m sure he truly believes this with every fiber of his being. How does he “know” this? Was Dave Mustaine in the hut in Kenya back when a midwife sent by the Soviets guided the AntiChrist out of Mama Obama’s birth canal? Of course not. Does he have video? Nope. So how does Dave Mustaine know this? Because he’s a blithering idiot who believes everything he reads in email forwards and wingnut chatrooms, that’s how, just like all the birther nuts.
