Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Believes Michelle Obama's Fashion Choices Are Coded Messages
Dave Mustaine is a heavy metal legend, notable for getting kicked out of Metallica for being too much of an asshole. So expecting him to have a reasonable opinion on pretty much anything is setting a precariously high standard. It should come as no surprise that Mustaine is a lifelong conspiracy theorist and a regular guest of Alex Jones, or that he uses the Infowars platform to spew outrageous rumors about Barack Obama. But Mustaine doesn't merely repeat theories he's heard on the internet. He's a born creative, of course he riffs off some truly logic-bending solos of his own from time to time.
Megadeth P.I. is not only still convinced that Obama's birth certificate is fake, but he also says he's seen the evidence with his own two eyes, explaining that there are signs saying "The Birthplace of Barack Obama" in Kenya -- a country where he definitely spends a lot of time. He appears to be a big fan of overly visual clues, having also told Alex Jones that Michelle Obama hides hints about her devious schemes in her fashion choices. When the 2012 election rolled around, Mustaine made the most of the opportunity to rope another candidate into the supposed conspiracy, noting that "George Soros came out and said Mitt Romney is just like Obama. So what do you got there? You've got Obama's mentor saying that Mitt Romney's just like him, and he's leading the polls now" -- a statement that has more gaping holes in it than a Megadeth fan's employment history.
Info WarsBy "theory," we of course mean that he had a Twitter bot fill out a Mad Lib.
