Let's Keep Piling Up All of the Ridiculous Things Some GOP Extremists Say About Obama

Just when you think things couldn't get any weirder with extremist Republican wannabe public officials, you come across a post by Slate that reads somewhere along the lines of, "A retired teacher who thinks Obama was a prostitute won big on Super Tuesday."

Her ever-so predictable anti-Muslim, climate-change-is-a-Marxist-hoax, and Obama-was-a-prostitute-when-he-was-in-his-20s rhetoric got Mary Lou Bruner, a candidate for the Texas State Board of Education, roughly 48 percent of votes in a three-way Republican race for the board's 15 seats, though. Something is working. The same thing that's pulling strings for GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Texas has long been ground zero for wackazoid right-wing politicians, who seem to get more entrenched every year: The current agriculture commissioner, Sid Miller, is on a heaven-sent mission to put deep fryers and vending machines back into schools after a 10-year ban, and the attorney general, Ken Paxton, is obsessed with invalidating same-sex marriages, even on death certificates. (Paxton could be disbarred for encouraging clerks to ignore the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage decision, among numerous other ethically questionable acts.)

But Bruner, a retired teacher with 36 years of experience in Texas schools, is exceptional even by Lone Star standards. Earlier this year, she made headlines for claiming that President Barack Obama bankrolled his drug habit by plying his wares on the street, as first reported by Texas Freedom Network. She posted on Facebook:

Obama has a soft spot for homosexuals because of the years he spent as a male prostitute in his twenties. That is how he paid for his drugs. He has admitted he was addicted to drugs when he was young, and he is sympathetic with homosexuals; but he hasn’t come out of the closet about his own homosexual/bisexual background.
