Donald Trump’s campaign is imploding, and all of Trump’s supporters know it. Following the release of an old audio tape that captured Trump making lewd comments about sexually assaulting women, top GOP leaders are refusing to support or defend him, and the media is attacking him viciously. Trump failed miserably during the second presidential debate against Hillary Clinton and judging from his Twitter history, even Trump knows he’s toast and is having a public meltdown over the whole thing.
As Trump unravels before our very eyes, his supporters have gotten louder in defense of their favorite racist and misogynist. One of Trump’s most passionate supporters is radio talk show host Alex Jones, who recently called Clinton and President Barack Obama “demons”, insisting that they smell like “sulfur” and “hell.” This is the same radio host that is paying his fans $5,000 to get on camera and call former president Bill Clinton a rapist. Jones said, in all seriousness:
“[Clinton] is an abject, psychopathic, demon from Hell that as soon as she gets into power is going to try to destroy the planet. I’m sure of that, and people around her say she’s so dark now, and so evil, and so possessed that they are having nightmares, they’re freaking out. […] There are dozens of videos and photos of Obama having flies land on him, indoors, at all times of year, and he’ll be next to a hundred people and no one has flies on them. Hillary, reportedly, I mean, I was told by people around her that they think she’s demon-possessed, okay? I’m just going to go ahead and say it, okay?”
Well, Jones’ words got back to Obama, who is used to attacks from the Right by now. Throughout his entire campaign, Obama has been called a foreigner and a Muslim ever since he stepped foot in the White House, so there’s nothing that he can’t handle when it comes to the GOP and their fear mongering. While at a rally for Clinton, Obama addressed Jones’ “demon” accusations head on and handled it with his usual grace and humor. Here’s what happened:

After sniffing his hand for this so-called “sulfur” smell that Jones said demons possess, Obama jokes, “Now, I mean, come on people!” – showing everyone just how utterly insane the GOP is. Obama’s response was hilarious and clever, and only confirms how much we’ll miss seeing him shut down Republicans when he leaves the White House.
