If there’s one thing every American can agree upon, it’s that President Barack Obama is a reptilian puppet bent on shaping the globe in a way that pleases his shadowy masters. You haven’t heard? Oh yeah, all the evidence is there. You just have to look for it and believe whatever batsh*t crazy thing that pops up on the internet.
Even before taking office, President Obama had been a lightning rod for some, um, “unique” conspiracy theories. For roughly a decade, people have been tripping over themselves to suggest the commander-in-chief is not who he claims to be. In some cases it’s outrageous claims like Obama has secret space-travel powers and in others it’s that seemingly unkillable claim that Obama wasn’t born in the United States and his birth certificate is phony. Some theories have an aura of silly fun and others come across as transparent smears done for political gain.
It can be hard to keep all these conspiracy theories about the President straight, so we here at Uproxx have assembled a helpful two-minute guide explaining the looniest claims around. Of course, we’re in the pocket of the New World Order and the Galactic Suppression League so hit play at your own risk.
