On Thursday night’s edition of “The Colbert Report,” host Stephen Colbert examined some things that President Barack Obama may have left out of his autobiography and that the liberal media doesn’t want to know. For example, did you know the president used to be a gay man on Mars?
“The thing is, folks,” said Colbert, “everything about Barack Obama is kind of suspicious.” Although, sadly, not as suspicious as he used to be. “In the good old days,” he said, “We had a new Obama scandal every week.” One week he was a secret Muslim and the next he doesn’t have a birth certificate and was “trained by Josef Stalin, Jeremiah Wright and General Grievous.”
“It seems we’ve run out of ways to make Obama a ‘menacing other,'” said the host, “Until tonight.”
Then, in a segment called “This Changes Everything,” Colbert introduced viewers to Andrew D. Basiago, a Washington state lawyer who claims to have been one of the first 100 children enrolled in “Project Pegasus” in 1969, when he was 9 years old. “Project Pegasus,” says Basiago, was a top secret teleportation research program.
Basiago claims to have started out by teleporting between New Jersey and New Mexico, but eventually ranged as far as the planet Mars. Shockingly, he revealed that one of his classmates in the teleportation program was none other than President Obama, with whom he traveled to Mars and worked on the surface of the planet.
Colbert consulted actor William Shatner to learn more. Shatner said that he believes that teleportation exists.
Basiago would certainly agree. He claims that Obama was his roommate at Mars camp for a summer.
“You don’t forget your roommate when you’re enrolled in a secret space program for the CIA,” he told Colbert.
Colbert then turned to the works of Jerome Corsi for more answers. Corsi, author of The Obama Nation, and one of the leading lights of the “Birther” movement, maintains that Obama wore a wedding ring in some photos even before he was married because wedding rings are “a homosexual symbol for women to stay away because he’s married in a same sex marriage to his roommate boyfriend.”
“The only possible conclusion was that Obama was gay married to Andrew…on Mars,” said Colbert.

Ex-Reagan adviser nails why white evangelicals flock to Trump in devastating takedown of fake Christians
Why do evangelicals — or at least, white ones — love President Donald Trump so much? Why do they stick by a president who has barely even read the Bible, has defiled marriage, and embodies the antithesis of so much of what their churches preach? Why, according to polls, did they essentially decide overnight that it's no longer important for a president to have strong personal morals to be an effective leader?
Trump biographer drops the hammer on the president in epic rant: ‘He’s a bigot’
On MSNBC's "Up with David Gura," Bloomberg News executive editor and MSNBC commentator Tim O'Brien laid into President Donald Trump's racist attacks on Democratic women of color.
As O'Brien pointed out, the proof that the president is a racist lies not just in what he said, but how he responded to public anger over it.
"There's a hesitance to call it what it is, and there shouldn't be any hesitation," said O'Brien, who authored TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald. "The president is a racist. The president is a bigot. By any standard we use to decide whether or not someone is acting is a racist. He ticks off every single one of those boxes ... It's in the fact pattern. There's a long history of this from him that predated his arrival in the White House."
Nazis ‘feed off of’ Trump’s statements: MSNBC law enforcement analyst warns of the president inciting violence
An MSNBC law enforcement analyst warned of President Donald Trump inciting violence with his racist targeting of women of color in Congress.
Anchor Joy Reid interviewed Jim Cavanaugh, a retired ATF special agent-in-charge on Friday evening's "The Last Word."
"So those threats beginning about two years ago, increases in white nationalist activity. Have you ever heard of these kinds of increases in hate and potential hate crimes being tied to a president of the United States?" Reid asked.
"No," he replied. "That’s very, very unusual, Joy, to have that happen."
"You know, when you get more power, your words carry more weight. When you get into this undercurrent of the Nazis and the white nationalists and the klansmen, they feed off of this. They feed off of public figures -- on the regular media, in the government, congressmen, senators, the president -- saying the things they always say," he explained. "It bolsters them. It gives them strength and power."
