PALM BEACH, Fla. – Radio host Rush Limbaugh is again calling into question the constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama to serve as president, declaring him to be a phony.
"We have an impostor for all intents and purposes serving in the White House," Limbaugh said today.
The comment from the top-rated host came during his analysis of the disclosure that Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour, a purported representative of the Taliban negotiating with the Afghan government, actually turned out to be an impersonator.
Limbaugh said: "The impostor got into the equivalent of the White House in Afghanistan. Did they not ask this guy for some kind of identification? They clearly didn't. They clearly didn't ask this guy for his birth certificate. How in the world could they trust in a leader and even give money to somebody who has not been properly vetted? Well, because it happened here in the United States. We have an impostor for all intents and purposes serving in the White House."
He added, "Do you realize that if this Taliban leader had tried to buy antihistamines from ... any kind of drug store, he would have had to produce a photo ID – not to vote, and not to be president – but to buy antihistamines."
