It started out as a conspiracy theory from Infowars, and now it’s been picked up by Malik Obama, half brother to Barack Obama, in which Malik asks if Michelle is really Michael. The theory is that Michelle was born Michael, and after a sex change operation, married Barack Obama.
Personally, I’ve never been a fan of that theory, nor do I know of a single shred of evidence that would back up such a theory. And I have no idea why Malik would ask that question. But the fact that he did does make me wonder why he would ask such a thing.
Barack Obama’s half brother, Malik, took to Twitter on Thursday to ask if Michelle is actually “Michael”.
“Is Michelle Michael?” Obama asked, referring to a conspiracy theory that the former First Lady is actually a man.
In 2017, Alex Jones claimed to have proof that Michelle was male.
The Independent reported:
In a 12-minute video, the Infowars host analyses footage and photos which he believes prove Ms Obama has a penis.
“Since the early days of the Obama administration, citizens across the board have studied videos and photos of Michelle Obama and said that she is a man,” the shock jock said.
“And even [Barack] Obama has called her over and over again Michael. But new shock footage has emerged that is being censored off the internet as fast as you can upload it.”
It’s not the first time Malik has made things uncomfortable for his brother on social media.
In 2017, Malik Obama tweeted an image of what appears to be Barack’s birth certificate.
Except it’s not from Hawaii, but rather Kenya.
