In a new song, the singer and songwriter who calls himself “Third Eagle” insinuates that President Barack Obama is a gay man who is waiting for the election to be over so he can leave his wife and start getting “oral” from a man named “George, Ed or Steve.”

Third Eagle is a 71-year-old retired furniture engineer named William Tapley. Tapley claims he received his inspiration to rename himself Third Eagle directly from God.

“My title ‘Third Eagle of the Apocalypse’ came to me when I asked God who was the ‘Eagle’ as found in Revelation 8:13. He told me: ‘you are,’” writes Tapley on the home page of his YouTube channel, Third Eagle’s Prophesies and Warnings. “Now, I should explain, I do not hear voices, but sometimes God gives prophecy to me by a revelation which I know comes not from my own thoughts but outside my mind. My title “Co Prophet of the End Times” means that I complete the end times prophecies of Daniel, Ezekiel, Esther, John and even of our Lord in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24-25).”

In his new song, “Take the ‘R’ Train,” a kind of barrelhouse blues for Casio keyboard and green screen, Third Eagle urges Americans to “vote for Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan too” because “they’ve got the ‘R’ train/rolling for you.”

Other ingenious rhymes include, “hear the conductor calling out all ‘board/ please don’t be late/ movin’ through the gate or you’ll never move for’d” and “Let’s out Obama/like Newsweek did/he is our first/gay president./After November/Michelle will leave/And he’ll shack up with/George, Ed or Steve.”

Tapley’s previous viral hit was the song “Mitt Romney: A Hero in my Mind,” which the singer and end-times prophet offered to the Romney campaign after the band the Silversun Pickups asked the Romney campaign to stop using their song “Panic Switch” at rallies.
