On Monday, October 9th, former President Donald Trump told a New Hampshire audience that he thinks former President Barack Obama is secretly acting President.
An Old Conspiracy Theory
“It’s never been worse than it is now under crooked Joe Biden and, frankly, his boss, Barack Hussein Obama,” Trump told a crowd of hundreds.
Trump had been suggesting for weeks that Obama was still secretly President, but Monday night was the first night Trump said so explicitly and directly.
It’s an old internet conspiracy theory that dates back to 2020 when Obama was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. A clip of the appearance re-circulated this fall in right-wing circles on the internet.
“Did you ever look at something going on in the news and say, ‘You know what this situation needs? A little Barack Obama.'” Colbert asked. “If I could make an arrangement where I had a stand-in,” Obama answered jokingly.
Obama and Biden No “Bromance”
There has never been any evidence to suggest that Obama is secretly acting President.
Reportedly, Obama and Biden have a cooler, more complicated relationship than their friendship during the Obama Administration.
However, Obama does still occasionally meet with Biden.
In June, Daily Wire Co-Founder Ben Shapiro shared an image from the Colbert interview on Instagram with the caption “LOL.”
Soon afterward, several conservative publications used the interview as a jumping-off point to question Biden’s age and abilities.
Trump Is a Repeat Offender
Trump is known to repeat things that he hears in conservative media circles.
It was not Trump’s first time sharing conspiracy theories in public. Trump continues to claim that he won the 2020 election despite no evidence of widespread fraud.
In fact, Trump’s speech that evening contained many more falsehoods.
Bacon Costs 500% More.
For example, Trump claimed that the price of bacon had gone up five times in the past year and a half.
The fact-checking website Politifact rated Trump’s claim as false. In Trump’s description of events, the price of bacon would be 500% greater than it currently is.
Trump currently leads the GOP field in New Hampshire by 30 points.
Trump previously won the 2016 New Hampshire Republican primary with 35.2%.
