thing to watch. In fact, it's been a well-manicured, expensively-
buffed torrent of slander, seeking to debase candidates on both
sides. All the usual smear campaign tactics have been employed,
as you'd expect, but a man named Jerome R. Corsi (above) has a
new one to unleash: that Obama is a closeted homosexual.
Yep, I know, big news right? Big, crazy, made-up news that
somehow typifies American political discourse. Anyway, the weird
thing is that Jerome isn't just some hillbilly crackpot making
outrageous, homophobic claims at an NRA barbecue, but a Harvard-
educated journalist who writes for World Net Daily, an ultra-
conservative news organisation that boasts headlines like "Kids
Drink 'Gay' Kool-Aid". He also likes to appear on white
supremacist radio shows, like The Political Cesspool, which
might give you an idea of the kind of guy he is.
Between being a right wing media sensation, he's found the time
to write a couple of books on Obama books that allege he was
molested as a child, is a Communist and, of course, that he's
gay. I called him up to find out where these accusations came
VICE: So how did you stumble across these allegations that Obama
Jerome R. Corsi: I started researching Obama in 2006 and wrote
two books on him. In 2008, I wrote The Obama Nation, then, in
2011, I wrote a book about the birth certificate debate. The
issue of Obama's sexuality has had rumours surrounding it since
I first started studying him. There were rumours even when he
was the US senate, in fact. I just needed some sources to
Why are those rumours only coming out around election time?
Well, Obama has been weakened significantly since he was first
elected, when it was difficult to criticise him at all. More and
more people are starting to resent or oppose Obama, so, as this
happens, more people are ready to talk about these issues.
And one of the first people to talk was Larry Sinclair, right?
Could you tell me more about him?
Larry wrote a book about having two homosexual encounters with
Obama in 1999, when Obama was state senator.
Larry's not the most reliable of sources, though. He's a self-
confessed fraudster, wanted in Arizona.
Yeah, I didn't believe everything he said, but his story was
always consistent. Also, a guy called Daniel Parisi brought a
defamation case against Larry for writing the book, but a
federal district judge threw it out of court, which isn't to say
Larry was telling the truth, but this judge clearly didn't think
he was lying either. That was the turning point for me. Also,
the fact that in his story he was the initiator, always made me
think there must be something to it, because he didn't try to
make himself look like the good guy. He said he got in a
limousine and told the driver to drive around, cruising for guys.
Who was the driver?
I don't know. That's always been one of the problems with
Larry's story. He supposedly said to the driver, "I want a guy"
and the driver said, "I got the exact guy for ya," then took him
to meet Obama.
Right. And what about Donald Young? How does he fit into the
Donald Young was a black choirmaster who was killed execution-
style in Chicago in 2007. Rumours were that Young had been
having a homosexual relationship with Obama and was murdered so
the story couldn't get out.
You've also talked a lot about the mysterious wedding ring Obama
wore in his youth.
Ah, yes. Obama had been wearing this ring on his wedding finger
since he was at Occidental College. When he was president of the
law review magazine at Harvard, they did a mock issue and
mentioned how he would always deflect questions about the ring.
There are also photos of him in Africa in '85 or '86 wearing the
ring, so he had it on for at least a decade before he got
married. A lot of people suggest it was either to keep women
away, or to act as some kind of wink-wink gay sign.
Yeah, that, or just a fashion accessory, I suppose. There are
suggestions something happened with his roommate too, right?
Yes. A guy called John Drew said he and Obama had lunch together
one day, and saw Obama come in with his Pakistani roommate,
Mohammed Hasan Chandoo. Drew told me in an interview that he was
convinced that they were lovers at the time. Candoo has been
married and has children, but he wouldn't be the first guy in
history to have a family and be gay or bisexual.
I guess we'll have to take his word as gospel then. I thought
Obama was supposed to be attracted to older white men, though?
Yep, that's been the story all along; older white men. I've
found two or three who claimed to have had relationships with
Obama, but they won't go on the record.
I can imagine. They probably don't want to be executed, right?
What first made you think that Obama is gay?
From the very first time I watched him from the senate gallery,
I suspected that he might be. The way he talked to other men was
very intimate and over-comfortable, y'know? Then, when I started
preparing interviews for The Obama Nation, I was told stories
about Obama being gay almost from the first confidential
interview I had. There's a big culture of homosexuality in
politics in Chicago. There's a place called the Purple Hotel,
where male politicians would allegedly rent a room, take crystal
meth and special K and invite male and female prostitutes for a
Do you think that Obama's kids are his?
I'm not going to answer that. I've got some information on it,
but I don't have enough to be really confident. It's certainly a
question that I've been thinking about, too.
You've also said that Obama is a Communist. Where did you get
In his autobiography, Obama talks about this guy Frank who he
spent a lot of time with as a kid. Frank turned out to be Frank
Marshall Davis, who was a member of the Communist party in the
1930s. There's a suggestion that Davis is Obama's real
biological father, but regardless of that, he's definitely his
intellectual father. A lot of themes Obama adopts were first
expressed by Davis and Davis was definitely a commie. Obama took
out all the references to Davis in the audio version of his
book, so he was clearly trying to hide it.
Nowadays, Obama is continuing with themes of redistributing
income and has made it abundantly clear to people that he really
does follow this socialist model. It has been well established
in American politics that Obama is a leftist, a socialist and
virtually a Communist.
Do you think he'll turn America into a Communist society if he's
I believe he will do everything he can to try and achieve that
And you've mentioned this guy Jeremiah Wright before, who
arranges "down-low" marriages of gay men to women who can't find
a husband. The thing is, Michelle Obama is quite an attractive,
outgoing woman why would she agree to an arrangement like that?
I'll be happy to give her to you! [Laughs] I think the general
perception of Michelle in the United States is that she's quite
difficult, quite bitter and quite angry. She gives off that
persona at conventions and appearances where she's the loving
mother and all the rest of it, but I think there's another side
I also read your article that suggested Ambassador Chris
Stevens, who was killed in Benghazi, was also gay.
I didn't say he was gay outright, I just said there was a lot of
evidence that suggested he was gay. Also, Obama's state
department is very heavily recruiting LGBT for foreign service.
I may have mentioned in the article that there was at least one
incident where, in Pakistan, our embassy held a gay pride day
and it caused a riot in Pakistan.
Do you think the riots in Benghazi were caused by people finding
out about ambassador Stevens' sexuality?
I don't have any proof of it, but it's certainly occurred to me,
because it looks like he was targeted. It's odd, because Stevens
helped the rebels, so he should have been a friend, but then
they ended up targeting him. There has to be some explanation
why Stevens was targeted and why Hillary Clinton is doing
everything she can to shut down an inquiry, rather than
Some people would say that this is all just political slander,
in light of the fact that it's election year and these
allegations just happen to be coming out now.
I think the reason people are coming out with this stuff now is
because there's an increasing sense that Obama's going to lose,
so sources are freer to release information than they were six
months ago. I think, if he loses, you're going to see a huge
increase in Obama's male ex-lovers telling their stories.
Why exactly is this of so much interest to you? I've read
articles where people suggest your obsession with Obama reflects
your latent homosexuality.
Yeah, some media has devoted more time to investigating me than
it has Obama, but my sexuality is pretty simple; I've been
married a long time and have always been heterosexual. I'm not
antagonistic towards gays I've had many gay friends but I'm
not gay myself.
Oh. So what's the big deal if Obama's gay or not? I had you down
as some homophobic whackjob who wanted to prove Obama was gay
out of hatred for homosexuals.
No, the issue for me is hypocrisy. I might have some attitudes
towards sexuality, but God says to not make judgements about
other people, so I refuse to get into it; it's not an issue. But
hypocrisy is an issue, especially in politics. The majority of
people aren't going to care if he is gay, but he has to be
forthright about it. If he lies about it, it becomes a totally
different issue. It's the same as his birth certificate. He was
happy to be "born in Kenya" while he was trying to sell books,
but as soon as he started running for President, he completely
changed his story.
He was forthright about his drug use, though. Why wouldn't he be
forthright about this?
They knew they had to be open about that issue, so they tried to
turn it into an aspect of his cool, youthful persona, but I
think they viewed his homosexuality as a liability, so they lied
about it. Politicians who think they have to lie to create this
mythical persona are living in a past era, and if they lie about
their persona, they also tend to lie about their politics.
Until people like you uncover the truth?
I don't take any great joy in doing it, it's just what I do. The
people are intelligent; you can't lie to them forever.
