Conservative commentator Alex Jones is at it again.
This time he shared a video that he claims is “final proof that Michelle Obama is a man.” Oh, and he implied that Joan Rivers was killed for revealing this information.
Jones, who has previously suggested that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax and who has cast doubt on 9/11, has long promoted the theory that Michelle Obama was born a man but said the ‘new viral video’ proved that he did not invent the theory himself.
We won’t dignify the video with an embed here, but here’s a taste of Jones’s words on the matter:
“Analyzing the photographs, Michelle appears to have a very large penis in her pants. Her shoulders are wide, her face is very, very, masculine.”
“She looks like a tranny and so you ask yourself, are the children a beard?”
All good things must come to an end: most TV shows, fast food binges, and the fabulous reign of FLOTUS and Queen of Our Hearts Michelle Obama.
Obama delivered her final speech as first lady on Friday at an event honoring the 2017 School Counselor of the Year, a ceremony that she introduced in 2015 to honor distinguished high-school counselors
The audience members weren’t the only ones crying — FLOTUS herself got pretty emotional as she bid farewell to her adoring public.
Throughout her speech, she echoed the values espoused throughout the Obama presidency.
Diversity, she reminded the audience, is “not a threat to who we are. It makes us who we are.”
…Perhaps a sentiment directed at the upcoming administration?
“Lead by example,” she told the young people in the audience, “with hope, never fear.”
We can expect a final address from her husband (who we’ll miss almost as much) President Barack Obama on January 10th in Chicago.
The Obamas will be vacating the White house in just two weeks.
~Downs eight pints of ice cream and sobs~
You can watch her full speech below (about 17 minutes into the video).
Regardless of political affiliation, we’ve all had major frustrations this election cycle. The disturbing rhetoric and general negativity has been unprecedented — a true feat for American politics.
…And it doesn’t help that one candidate can’t seem to stop saying egregious things about women. Many have tried to take him down for this kind of behavior, but few have actually succeeded. Until recently, his poll numbers were strong and he seemed unfazed by his competition.
But one woman knows how to wreck her opponent: Michelle Obama.
First Lady Michelle Obama has captivated everyone’s attention with arguably the most powerful speech of the election.
While campaigning for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, Obama moved an entire crowd to tears with a powerful and pointed speech taking down Donald Trump, all without mentioning his name.
And that’s how you do politics.
After a few minutes of positivity, she just had to get into the cold, hard truth:
[in this campaign] we have consistently been hurting hateful language about women. Language that has been painful for so many of us, not just as women, but as parents trying to protect our children and raise them to be caring respectful adults, who think our nation’s leader should meet basic standards of human decency.
She went on to talk about a particular ~unnamed~ candidate (guess who?).
And last week we saw this candidate actually bragging about sexually assaulting women… And I can’t believe that I’m saying that a candidate for president of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women. And I have to tell you that I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted.
Shaken her to the core, America.
And she even addressed Trump’s “locker room talk” defense. Spoiler alert: SHE’S NOT IMPRESSED.
This was not just a lewd conversation. This wasn’t ‘locker room banter.’ This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior.
You better watch out, Donald. She is not joking around. And she’s a total goddamn badass.
Then she got specific in a way that was chillingly familiar to her audience:
It is cruel. It is frightening. And the truth is, it hurts… It’s like that sick sinking feeling you get when you’re walking down the street minding your own business. some guy yells out vulgar words about your body. Or when you see that guy at work that stands just a little too close, stares just a little too long, you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. It’s that feeling of terror and violation that too many women have felt when someone has grabbed them or forced himself on them and they’ve said no but he didn’t listen.
And she reminded the crowd that this behavior should never be considered “normal.”
As she put it, this is anything but “politics as usual.”
Within minutes of the speech hitting Youtube, FLOTUS was trending on Twitter — and people couldn’t get over how powerful her speech was.
I cried through this entire speech. Thank you, Michelle Obama. For showing us grace and faith and humanity. https://t.co/87g967Uh8P
