Right-wing radio host and conspiracy theorist Wayne Allyn Root, defended Roy Moore on his radio program last week by claiming Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both had gay relationships in an attempt to distract his listeners from reports that the Alabama GOP Senate nominee had pursued sexual relationships with teenage girls as young as 14 when he was in his 30s.
The Trump sycophant informed his listeners that after reviewing photos of Moore’s female accusers, he thought “they were beautiful young girls and they could have passed for 20” and so even if Moore did “hit on a couple of them,” it is no big deal because “every time a see a video or picture of [Joe Biden], he’s got his hand inappropriately on a woman’s ass,” reports Right Wing Watch.
Root, who last month falsely claimed the Las Vegas shooting was an ISIS attack, demanded to know why the media never investigated reports that both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama had gay relationships.
“Where is The Washington Post to dig into Hillary Clinton’s background?” Root asked. “Where are the women Hillary’s dated all these years? How come they don’t come forward? Where are they? Everybody knows about them.”
“I’ve heard the rumors about Bathhouse Barry,” he said. “Everyone has. Bathhouse Barry, well known in Chicago. By the way, not a rumor from a stranger I don’t know, rumors from my friends in Chicago, who are people in the know who tell me Barack Obama has a sordid past.”
