Bryan Fischer and caller debate whether Obama has physical or ‘spiritual’ leprosy

Published

on

Conservative radio host Bryan Fischer and one caller couldn’t quite agree whether they felt President Barack Obama had leprosy in the physical or metaphorical sense, in video posted by Right Wing Watch on Friday.

“I was telling my wife this morning, he’s gonna turn into a white man,” the caller explained to Fischer. “It isn’t caucasian, he’s fraught with leprosy. I said, ‘He’s already half-white.'”

When Fischer asked whether the caller was referring to a physical condition, the unidentified man answered, “It’s manifesting itself more and more now.”

Fischer seemed to be attempting to steer the caller toward saying Obama was suffering from “spiritual leprosy,’ with middling results.

“He’s infecting everybody that he touches, just like the lepers did,” the man told Fischer. “And the only cure for that is Jesus’ touch. So unless he turns toward Jesus, it’s just going to get worse.”

Fischer did not mention that Obama is a practicing Christian. Instead, he kept asking the caller whether he actually saw physical signs of the president’s “ailment,” before the caller chuckled and seemed to backtrack.

“I think you’re exactly right when you say leprosy is a symbol for sin,” Fischer reassured him. “The solution for that is Christ, and whatever there is that’s toxic about our president, I do believe he has a worldview that’s very skewed, very distorted.”

Via The Huffington Post, Johnson posted a video on Instagram this week in which he lamented the dire state of American society after the death of George Floyd last month.

"Our country is down on its knees, begging, pleading, hurt, angry, frustrated, in pain," Johnson said.

Although Johnson did not directly reference President Donald Trump, he seemed to be implicitly addressing the president by noting that there is a massive void in leadership in America right now.

‘Teargaslighting’: Laura Ingraham pivots to tear gas trutherism now that hydroxychloroquine out of news cycle

Published

The Trump campaign on Tuesday sought to defend the president's Bible-toting photo-op — which was made possible after police backed by the National Guard dispersed peaceful protesters with tear gas — by claiming that tear gas had not actually been used on the protesters.

Trump mounted the photo-op, in which officials also launched flash-bang shells and rubber bullets, because he was "annoyed" by reports that he had hidden in the White House bunker. Ivanka Trump "urged" her dad to come up with a "more personal way of demonstrating toughness," according to The New York Times.
