Did Michelle Obama Attend Satanic Sex Parties As A Man?!

Did Michelle Obama attend Satanic sex parties as a man?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Michelle Obama Attended Sex Parties As A Man!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that former First Lady Michelle Obama attended sex parties as a “hung” man!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) confusing article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Elite Pedo Victim Claims ‘Hung’ Michelle Obama Attended Satanic Sex Parties

The dark truth about Michelle Obama has been hiding in plain sight for years now.

Michelle’s high school boyfriend has confirmed she is in fact a biological male, and child rape victims are coming forward to testify they were raped by the former first lady – when she was a man.

Truth : Michelle Obama Did Not Attend Sex Parties As A Man!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : David Upchurch Never Said Michelle Obama Was A Man!

Let me start by pointing out that David Upchurch never said that Michelle Obama was a man!

David Upchurch only referred to Michelle Obama as “she”, “her”, and “Michelle”, and never claimed she was a man called Michael Robinson.

I grew up with Michelle and her brother Craig. We  were neighbours, and our families were close.

When Michelle was in the middle of her junior year, we began dating and continued to date for a year-and-a-half.

I wished the best for Michelle because she has always been a  wonderful  person. I always knew Michelle was special and would make a  difference in the world.

I cannot tell you how proud I am of her and her husband. I  have never met  Barack, but I have to say, he is a very lucky man.

Why would anyone claim that he ever said that Michelle Obama was really a man called Michael Robinson???

Fact #2 : None Of Ally Carter’s Claims Were Ever Proven True

These bizarre claims by a woman called Ally Carter isn’t new, having originated in 2020 when she posted on Instagram that Barack Obama and Joe Biden raped her.

She claimed to have been trafficked in underground tunnels that run under schools, cemeteries, and Universal Studios to elites living in Hollywood, the Buckingham Palace, and the Getty Museum since she was thirteen years old.

Despite these claims surfacing many years ago, Ally Carter never provided any evidence that:

  • she was sold to Joe Biden multiple times, or
  • there are millions of sex abuse victims like her, or
  • some sex abuse victims had their limbs cut off so they cannot fight back against the abuse, or
  • some abusers drained their victims’ blood to use as a fountain of youth, or
  • CPS (Child Protective Services) buys, sells, and trades children

Needless to say, The People’s Voice article provided zero evidence to back up those claims.

Fact #3 : Michelle Obama Gave Birth To Two Girls

Claims that Michelle Obama was born a man is not only false, it’s ridiculous because she gave birth to two girls – Malia Obama and Sasha Obama.

In November 2018, Michelle Obama even opened up about her experience with infertility, revealing that she suffered a miscarriage early in their marriage. Eventually she and former President Barack Obama resorted to in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) to conceive Malia and Sasha.

For those who are wondering – transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus. And no, Malia and Sasha Obama were not adopted!

Fact #4 : Michelle Obama Was Female All Her Life

Even if you ignore the fact that she gave birth to two girls, Michelle Obama grew up as a female. Her family and friends only knew her as a girl and then, a woman. Never as a boy or a man who later became transgender.

Michelle Obama sometimes shares photos of her childhood on her Instagram account. They are all proof that she grew up as a girl, never as a boy. On the other hand, all these claims that she was born a boy called Michael Robinson has never been backed by any evidence.

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Truth : David Upchurch Never Said Michelle Obama Was A Man!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why!

Fact #1 : David Upchurch Never Said Michelle Obama Was A Man!

Let me start by pointing out that David Upchurch never said that Michelle Obama was a man!

If that actually happened, it would have been reported by the media, and celebrity blogs, all over the world! Obviously, that did not happen, because David Upchurch never made such a ridiculous claim.

Unsurprisingly – none of those who made the ridiculous claim actually provided any evidence David Upchurch ever said that Michelle Obama was really born a man called Michael Robinson!

Fact #2 : David Upchurch Only Referred To Michell Obama As Female

In March 2009, David Upchurch told The Daily Mail about being Michelle Obama’s first love, and escorting her to prom.

He was not only her neighbour, he attended the same Whitney M Young High School in Chicago, Illinois, and had been going out with Michelle Robinson (her maiden name) for almost 1.5 years before taking her to prom.

I grew up with Michelle and her brother Craig. We  were neighbours, and our families were close.

Did Michelle Obama Announce She’s Running For President?!

Did Michelle Obama just announce that she is running for President in 2024?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Michelle Obama Announces She’s Running For President!

People are sharing a video, which claims to show former First Lady Michelle Obama announcing that she’s running for President in the 2024 Presidential election!

The video also appears to show Michelle Obama confessing that she is a male, and would be running for President as a male.

Dom Lucre / Bay Area State Of Mind / Matthew Sule / In Case You Missed Tweet :

🔥🚨BREAKING NEWS: Michelle Obama has announced that she will be running from President. In a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, Michelle announced to the shock of everyone that she will be following her husband’s footsteps and run for President in 2024 as a man to also stand in unison with Transgenders.

Michelle stated: Barrack made it legal for these people to marry, he helped created a beautiful nation where we can wake up and decide what to be, the real definition of an American dream. So why not? I decided to wake up and run as a male to push my husband’s vision to the next level and save America from Donald Trump.”

Recommended : Did Michelle Obama Rape Child When She Was A Man?!

 

Truth : Michelle Obama Did Not Announce Running For President!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Michelle Obama Did Not Announce Running For President

Let me start by simply pointing out that Michelle Obama did not announce that she’s running for President in the 2024 Presidential election.

If she did, it would have been reported worldwide by the media. Yet that never happened, because Michelle Obama never announced she would be running for President in 2024.

There was also no official announcement or statement, and she did not post about it on her social media. So why should you trust some post on social media?

Fact #2 : They Were Posted On April 1

I should also point out that the video and original tweets were posted on 1 April 2024 – April Fool’s Day.

It is highly likely that they were posted as satire, or to troll people on April Fool’s Day for engagement (and $$$).

Recommended : Was Joan Rivers Killed For Insulting The Obamas?!

Fact #3 : Photo Was From February 2020

The video does not actually show Michelle Obama announcing her candidacy in the 2024 Presidential election with Oprah.

Instead, it uses a still image from Oprah’s 2020 Vision event in February 2020, where Michelle Obama spoke about body positivity.

Fact #4 : Audio Was Edited

The audio used in the video was most definitely edited to make it sound like Michelle Obama admitted that she is really a man, and would be running for President as a male.

The actual video can be seen here, with the full transcript here. If you watch the video, or read the transcript, you will see that Michelle Obama never once mention that Barack Obama legalised same-sex marriage in the United States, or that she would be running for President as a male.

Fact #5 : Michelle Obama Was Born Female

Far-right conservatives and conspiracists have often claimed that Michelle Obama is a transgender woman, who was really born as a man. However, that’s simply not true, and they have had to resort to editing photos of her.

The truth is Michelle Obama was born as a girl, and even gave birth to two girls. Transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus.

Recommended : Do Photos Prove Michelle Obama Is Transgender?!

Fact #5 : Barack Obama Did Not Legalise Same-Sex Marriage

Even though both Barack and Michelle Obama have voiced their support for same-sex marriage, Barack Obama did not legalise same-sex marriage while he was President of the United States.

For one thing – the recognition of marriage was left to the states to decide prior to the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). By 2015, same-sex marriage was already permitted in 36 states in the United States, as well as the District of Columbia, and Guam.

But it was the US Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges that the fundamental right to marry is guaranteed to same-sex couples, requiring all states and territories in the United States of America to perform and recognise same-sex marriages.

In short – it was the US Supreme Court ruling in June 2015 that legalised same-sex marriage across the United States of America, not then-President Barack Obama.

Fact #6 : Michelle Obama Ruled Out Presidency Bid

Despite her popularity, Michelle Obama has consistently ruled out running for the US Presidency. In fact, on 5 March 2024, the former First Lady’s office told NBC News that she does not intend to run for President:

As former First Lady Michelle Obama has expressed several times over the years, she will not be running for president.

Mrs. Obama supports President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election campaign.

Did Michelle Obama Rape Child When She Was A Man?!

Claim : Michelle Obama Raped Child When She Was A Man!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that a child rape victim testify that Michelle Obama raped her when she was a man!

Truth : WHO Did Not Warn Everyone Will Have Cancer Within 20 Years!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : This Is An Old Claim From 2020

Let me start by pointing out that this is an old claim from 2020, when a woman who called Ally Carter posted on Instagram that Barack Obama and Joe Biden raped her.

She claimed to have been trafficked in underground tunnels that run under schools, cemeteries, and Universal Studios to elites living in Hollywood, the Buckingham Palace, and the Getty Museum since she was thirteen years old.

The Stew Peters interview mentioned in the The People’s Voice article occurred on Wednesday, 10 November 2021 – more than 2 years ago!

Fact #2 : None Of Those Claims Were Ever Proven True

Despite these claims surfacing many years ago, Ally Carter never provided any evidence that:

  • she was sold to Joe Biden multiple times, or
  • there are millions of sex abuse victims like her, or
  • some sex abuse victims had their limbs cut off so they cannot fight back against the abuse, or
  • some abusers drained their victims’ blood to use as a fountain of youth, or

For those who are wondering – transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus. And no, Malia and Sasha Obama were not adopted.

On the other hand, all these claims that she was born a boy has never been backed by any evidence. Ally Carter certainly offered no evidence that Michelle Obama was born a man.

In fact, if Ally Carter truly was raped by Michelle Obama, she would have know that Michelle was a woman through and through…

Fact #4 : Barack + Michelle Obama Photo Is Fake

On top of that, The People’s Voice article and video used a fake cover photo, which shows a masculine Michelle Obama with a feminised Barack Obama.

It is an “upgraded” version of the fake Barack and Michelle Obama Christmas photo that went viral in 2022.

Here is our comparison, which shows the original Christmas photo that Michelle Obama posted on her Instagram account on 25 December 2014, and the edited photo which went viral in 2022.

Why would anyone need to doctor this photo if Michelle Obama was really a man???

Did Barack Obama’s Mother Pose In Nude Photos?!

Did Barack Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, pose in nude photos for his “real” father, Frank Marshall Davis?!

Take a look at the viral photos, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Barack Obama’s Mother Posed In Nude Photos!

People are posting photos purportedly of Barack Obama’s mother, when she posed in nude photos, suggesting that the photographer, Frank Marshall Davis, was his real father, and not Barack Obama Sr.!

Stew Peters : Never forget that this “lady’s” son was the first “black” president of the United States. 🇺🇸

Recommended : Was Joan Rivers Killed For Insulting The Obamas?!

 

Truth : Barack Obama’s Mother Did Not Pose Nude For Men’s Magazines!

This is yet another example of fake news created about former President Barack Obama, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Nude Photos Are Not Of Barack Obama’s Mother

This is really silly, but let me just start by pointing out that Barack Obama’s mother – Stanley Ann Dunham, is not the woman seen in those viral nude photos.

Those nude photos are also not private photos taken by Frank Marshall Davis, because they appeared in the men’s magazine called Exotique!

Fact #2 : Ann Dunham Only Moved To Hawaii In 1960

It is temporally impossible for Ann Dunham to be the woman in those photos, or even be acquainted with Frank Marshall Davis when those photos were taken, because she only moved to Hawaii in 1960.

  • Those viral photos appeared in the men’s magazine called Exotique in 1958. Stanley Ann Dunham was still living in Washington when those photos were published.
  • The Dunham family did not move to Hawaii until the summer of 1960 – two years after those photos were published.
  • The magazine Exotique ceased publication in 1959 – one year before Barack Obama’s mother first stepped foot in Hawaii.

Unless Stanley Ann Dunham had a time machine in the 1960s, it would be impossible for her to travel back in time to pose nude in 1958.

Fact #2 : Posing Nude Isn’t Illegal

Even if Barack Obama’s mother posed nude for men’s magazines, that wouldn’t have been illegal, or wrong.

In fact, former First Lady Melania Trump famously posed nude in the January 2000 edition of GQ magazine, while she was Donald Trump’s girlfriend, Melania Knauss.

Recommended : Did Taylor Swift Show Trump Won Flag At 2024 Grammys?!

Fact #3 : Nude Photos Claim Originated In 2012

I should also point out that these claims about Barack Obama’s mother posing nude for men’s magazines is very old, originating with the 2012 conspiracy movie, Dreams from My Real Father. by conspiracy theorist Joel Gilbert.

Loren Collins did a great job fact checking that very old claim, which you can read here and here.

We may never know who the mystery model is. But the Dunham family didn’t move to Hawaii until the summer of 1960. Unless Ann Dunham had access to a time machine in the 1960s, it simply cannot be her.

Moreover, Joel Gilbert knows this. He found that opera glove photo; it was not circulating the web as an ‘Ann’ photo prior to his videos. He knows it came from Exotique, a magazine that ceased publication in 1959. From WND: “Gilbert found that several of the photos in the collection appeared in a magazine called Exotique, published by pin-up photographer Leonard Burtman, who worked in New York City.”

Thus he knows this picture was published two years before Ann first stepped foot in Hawaii, years before she could have met Frank Marshall Davis. And yet he explicitly claims, multiple times, that the photo was TAKEN at Christmastime 1960. This is not a lie of ignorance or mistake; it is a lie of pure, fully-informed malice.

It is interesting that these old photos and long-debunked claims should resurface in 2024, in the run-up to the 2024 US Presidential Election. Is it because some conservatives believe that Michelle Obama might run for the US Presidency?

Fact #4 : Ann Dunham Would Have Been Underage

Joel Gilbert not only put those photos in his movie, he mailed out more than a million copies to voters in Iowa, Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Colorado, in an apparent attempt to influence the 2012 US presidential election.

However, Stanley Ann Dunham was born in 1942, and would have been 15 years old – underage, when those photos were originally published in 1958.

If those photos are really of Ann Dunham, it would mean that Joel Gilbert knowingly published child pornography, and illegally distributed them to more than a million people!

Is This The Only Official Michelle Obama Pregnancy Photo?!

Is there only one official Michelle Obama pregnancy photo, taken with Barack Obama?!

Take a look at the viral photo, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : This Is Only Official Michelle Obama Pregnancy Photo!

People are sharing a photo which claims to be the only official Michelle Obama pregnancy photo!

Dom Lucre | Breaker of Narritives : The last photo I shared of Michelle Obama pregnant was community noted so here is the official and only picture of Michelle Obama being pregnant.

Recommended : Did Michelle Obama Release Photos Of Herself Pregnant?!

 

Truth : That’s Not An Official Michelle Obama Pregnancy Photo!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created about Barack and Michelle Obama, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Michelle Obama Never Released Photos Of Herself Pregnant

First, let me just point out that Michelle Obama has never released photos of herself while pregnant with Sasha or Malia.

That’s not to say they don’t exist. It is likely that they exist – they were simply not made available to us – members of the public.

Perhaps she’s just like many of us who don’t share private photos on social media. Perhaps she did not want to “jinx” her pregnancies.

After all, Michelle and Barack Obama had trouble getting pregnant, and she suffered a miscarriage. They ultimately conceived Malia and Sasha through in-vitro fertilisation (IVF).

But I did find a single photo showing her pregnant with Sasha in the year 2000, while walking with Barack Obama and Malia Sasha in a stroller. It was apparently taken by AP, so we know this is a genuine photo.

Michelle Obama was 36 years old at that time, while Barack Obama was 39 years old. As you can see – they look young!

Photo Credit : AP Images

Fact #2 : The Viral Photo Was AI-Generated

A quick look at the viral photo quickly showed image artifacts that tell us that it was AI-generated.

  • Both Michelle and Barack Obama look like they are in their 50s, instead of their 30s when they had their two girls.
  • Michelle Obama has really abnormal eyebrows. The left eyebrow appears to start from her inner corner of the eyelid, while she appears to have two eyebrows on the right.
  • Michelle Obama appears to have two bulges on her skull.
  • Michelle Obama’s right hand has really weird nails and the fingers are too long.
  • Barack Obama’s left ear is located way too low, right next to his cheek!
  • Barack Obama appears to have a giant double-chin!
  • Barack Obama’s left hand has ridiculously long fingers!

In short – this photo was created using generative AI software. It is most certainly not an actual Michelle Obama pregnancy photo, never mind an official one.

The person who created this photo using generative AI also made the mistake of generating it using current photos of Michelle and Barack Obama. They were only in their 30s when they had Malia and Sasha, not their 50s!

Recommended : Was Joan Rivers Killed For Insulting The Obamas?!

Fact #3 : Michelle Obama Was Born A Woman

There is no need for Michelle Obama to release any photos of herself pregnant to prove that she is a woman.

Even if you ignore the fact that she gave birth to two girls, Michelle Obama grew up as a female. Her family and friends only knew her as a girl and then, a woman. Never as a boy or a man who later became transgender.

Michelle Obama sometimes shares photos of her childhood on her Instagram account. They are all proof that she grew up as a girl, never as a boy.

On the other hand, all these claims that she was born a boy has never been backed by any evidence.

Fact #4 : Michelle Obama Gave Birth To Two Girls

Claims that Michelle Obama was born a man is not only false, it’s absurdly ridiculous, because she gave birth to two girls – Malia Obama and Sasha Obama.

For those who are wondering – transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus. And no, Malia and Sasha Obama were not adopted

Ultimately, these fake photos, and claims about Michelle Obama being transgender, are just attempts by misogynists and Republicans of the MAGA persuasion to disparage Barack and Michelle Obama.

As the 2024 US Presidential Election draws close, you can expect more rumours of Michelle Obama joining the race, and even more fake news and photos about her.

People are sharing photos that they claim were taken when Michelle Obama was pregnant, to prove that she is a real woman.

Charlotte, The Baroness : BREAKING: Michelle Obama silences ALL conspiracy theorists and demands a universal apology after FINALLY releasing glowing pregnancy photos when she was expecting Sasha and Malia.

Was_it_Planned : You can fake the baby bump. We need 3 independent DNA samples analyzed to prove man or women.

The rest is smoke and mirrors. I think she’s a he! While you’re at it, DNA test the kids to verify birth parents are Obama’s.

Ultra Maga Tx Teresa 🇺🇸 : 😂🤣😆😂 we know you’re a dude & we’ve seen their real parents. 🤡🤡

Truth : Those Are Not Photos Of A Pregnant Michelle Obama!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created about Barack and Michelle Obama, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Michelle Obama Never Released Photos Of Herself Pregnant

First, let me just point out that Michelle Obama has never released photos of herself while pregnant with Sasha or Malia.

That’s not to say they don’t exist. It is likely that they exist – they were simply not made available to us – members of the public.

Perhaps she’s just like many of us who don’t share private photos on social media. Perhaps she did not want to “jinx” her pregnancies.

After all, Michelle and Barack Obama had trouble getting pregnant, and she suffered a miscarriage. They ultimately conceived Malia and Sasha through in-vitro fertilisation (IVF).

Fact #2 : The Photos Were AI-Generated

I took a look at all four photos and quickly determined that they were AI-generated, and rather poor examples at that.

The first two are better examples, but if you look closely, you can see that her hands are grossly distorted. She not only has at least six fingers on each hand, they are of wrong lengths and with nails in the wrong position.

These two examples are terrible. The example on the left does not even look like Michelle Obama. Perhaps a young Oprah Winfrey? Of course, Oprah never had children…

The one on the right looks more like Michelle Obama but had grossly exaggerated features, including a hump neck. But the easiest way to identify it as an AI-generated fake photo is by looking at her hands.

As you can see, both examples have distorted hands. In the example on the left, the fingers of both hands appear to merge together. In the example of the right, her left hand has six unnaturally long fingers, while her right hand has a ridiculously long thumb.

Fact #3 : Online Tools Confirmed Images Were AI-Generated

Just in case you don’t trust my Mark 1 eyeballs, or my common sense, you will be glad to know that two online tools used to detect AI-generated photos – AI or Not, and Illuminarty, have confirmed all four photos were generated using AI image generators.

Fact #4 : Michelle Obama Was Born A Woman

There is no need for Michelle Obama to release any photos of herself pregnant to prove that she is a woman.

Even if you ignore the fact that she gave birth to two girls, Michelle Obama grew up as a female. Her family and friends only knew her as a girl and then, a woman. Never as a boy or a man who later became transgender.

Michelle Obama sometimes shares photos of her childhood on her Instagram account. They are all proof that she grew up as a girl, never as a boy.

On the other hand, all these claims that she was born a boy has never been backed by any evidence.

Fact #5 : Michelle Obama Gave Birth To Two Girls

Claims that Michelle Obama was born a man is not only false, it’s absurdly ridiculous, because she gave birth to two girls – Malia Obama and Sasha Obama.

For those who are wondering – transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus. And no, Malia and Sasha Obama were not adopted

Ultimately, these fake photos, and claims about Michelle Obama being transgender, are just attempts by misogynists and Republicans of the MAGA persuasion to disparage Barack and Michelle Obama.

As the 2024 US Presidential Election draws close, you can expect more rumours of Michelle Obama joining the race, and even more fake news and photos about her.

Do Photos Prove Michelle Obama Is Transgender?!

Do viral photos circulating on social media prove that Michelle Obama is really a transgender woman who was born a man?!

Take a look at those viral photos, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Photos Prove Michelle Obama Is Transgender Woman!

People are sharing photos that claim to prove that Michelle Obama is really a transgender woman who was born a man, with comments like:

WeLoveTrump : Joan Rivers “Died Suddenly” After Making This Comment About Michelle Obama…

Michelle Obama is a man that used to be named Michael. Obama is gay #TrumpIsBetter

She’s a transgender woman, born male and still male..he probably has a bigger man piece than you & proud of it.  God’s children tell the truth, they don’t conceal truth, only Lucifer’s ppl do that..

Truth : Photos Do NOT Prove Michelle Obama Is Transgender Woman!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to disparage Michelle Obama by misogynists and Republicans of the MAGA persuasion, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Michelle Obama Gave Birth To Two Girls

The claims that Michelle Obama is a transgender woman who was born a man is not only false, it’s ridiculous because she gave birth to two girls – Malia Obama and Sasha Obama.

In November 2018, Michelle Obama even opened up about her experience with infertility, revealing that she suffered a miscarriage early in their marriage. Eventually she and former President Barack Obama resorted to in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) to conceive Malia and Sasha.

For those who are wondering – transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus. And no, Malia and Sasha Obama were not adopted!

Fact #2 : Michelle Obama Was Female All Her Life

Even if you ignore the fact that she gave birth to two girls, Michelle Obama grew up as a female. Her family and friends only knew her as a girl and then, a woman. Never as a boy or a man who later became transgender.

Michelle Obama sometimes shares photos of her childhood on her Instagram account. They are all proof that she grew up as a girl, never as a boy.

On the other hand, all these claims that she was born a boy has never been backed by any evidence.

Fact #3 : Michelle Obama Photos Were Edited

I investigated three of the most common photos that people were sharing as “evidence” that Michelle Obama is a transgender woman, and by extension, former President Barack Obama is a gay man.

This first photo, which claims to show Michelle Obama scratching her itchy crotch / penis, was photoshopped using a photo taken by AFP photographer, Jewel Samad.

The original photo is available on Getty Images as photo number 167345551, with the description:

US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama arrive at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on April 24, 2013 to leave for Dallas, Texas. Obama was heading to Dallas, Texas to attend a Democratic National Committee event later in the day. He will also attend a memorial service in Waco on Thursday for the victims of the West, Texas, fertilizer plant explosion. AFP PHOTO/Jewel Samad

The original photo shows Michelle Obama looking down with her right hand covering her crotch, likely fighting against the wind from the spinning helicopter blades.

It was edited to change the angle of her hand, which is why her dress is suddenly much wider. The fake news creator then added the “crotch”.

Recommended : Was Joe Biden Caught Groping Girl On Viral Video?!

This viral (but fake) photo was edited from an original photo posted by former President Barack Obama on January 17, 2019, to celebrate Michelle Obama’s birthday.

The fake news creator changed her hairstyle, giving her a crewcut, and made her face wider to make it look masculine.

This viral photo of Michelle Obama with a visible penis bulge was a screenshot from a video of the Democratic National Convention, when she gave a speech on August 25, 2008.

Tens of millions of people watched her speech, and dozens of photographers took photos of Michelle Obama from the moment she walked onto the stage of the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado that day.

If Michelle Obama really sported a penis bulge that day, it would have been captured in the videos and photos taken that day.

However, none of the real photos taken by photographers that day showed a penis bulge. The viral photo was evidently edited to add a penis bulge.

I should also point out, again, that Michelle Obama could not have given birth to her two daughters (who accompanied her that day) if she was a transgender woman.

Jho Low Paid $20 Million For Photo With The Obamas!

Jho Low paid a cool $20 million for a single photo with the Obamas, but guess how much he paid to influence the Trump Administration?!

 

Jho Low Paid $20 Million For Photo With The Obamas!

On Tuesday, 18 April 2023, Prakazrel “Pras” Michel – a member of the Fugees, together with Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean, testified in his own defence against charges of criminal conspiracy, foreign lobbying and campaign finance crimes.

Pras Michel stands accused of conspiring with fugitive Malaysian financier, Jho Low, to influence the Obama and Trump administrations. During his trial in Washington, D.C., Pras Michel revealed how Jho Low hired him to be a “celebrity surrogate” in order to finagle that photo with the Obamas.

Michel described Jho Low as a “wealthy man willing to do anything, spend any type of money” to get his photo with President Barack Obama, but that Low’s reputation made him “too hot” get an invited to fundraising events. He himself witnessed Low’s wild lifestyle, which was filled with celebrities, models, night clubs, and free-flowing cash.

My understanding is that the campaign thought he was too hot. They didn’t want the optics at that time. At that point, Jho Low was a party guy – Vegas, champagne, parties with Paris Hilton. The campaign just didn’t want that.

Michel told Low that he would try to help him get that photo with the Obamas, but for a price.

I basically asked for US$1 million to begin to think about how I would get this photo. I was going to try.

Jho Low would end up paying Pras Michel $20 million over nine months, before the fugitive tycoon finally got his wish – a photograph with President Barack Obama, and First Lady Michelle Obama, at the 2012 White House Christmas party!

The photo with the Obamas may have cost Jho Low $20 million, but prosecutors claim that Pras Michel pocketed $18 million of the money, and funnelled $2 million into Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign.

Jho Low Paid $70 Million To Influence Trump Administration!

If you are shocked by how much Jho Low paid to get that single photo with Barack and Michelle Obama, you will be shocked by how much he paid to influence the Trump Administration!

Prosecutors alleged that Jho Low paid Michel, 50, another $70 million to lobby the Trump Administration to drop its civil and criminal investigation of Low in the 1MDB scandal, as well as have Miles Guo Wengui, a Chinese billionaire dissident, extradited to China!

Jho Low was indicted in 2021 together with Pras Michel by a federal grand jJury, but remains at large and is believed to be in China.

The indictment issued Thursday by a grand jury in Washington accuses Low and Michel of conspiring with Broidy, a woman named Nickie Lum Davis and others “to engage in undisclosed lobbying campaigns at the direction of Low and the Vice Minister of Public Security for the People’s Republic of China, respectively,” according to the Justice Department.

The goals of those campaigns were “both to have the 1MDB embezzlement investigation and forfeiture proceedings involving Low and others dropped and to have a Chinese dissident sent back to China.”

If convicted, Jho Low faces a maximum penalty of five to 10 years in prison, per count, while Pras Michel could face a range of maximum penalties from five to 20 years in prison, per count.

Was Joan Rivers Killed For Insulting The Obamas?!

Was comedian Joan Rivers killed for revealing that Barack Obama is gay, and Michelle Obama is a transgender woman?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Joan Rivers Killed For Insulting The Obamas

People are sharing a video of Joan Rivers saying that Barack Obama is gay, and Michelle Obama is a transgender woman, as evidence the comedian was killed for insulting them!

WeLoveTrump : Joan Rivers “Died Suddenly” After Making This Comment About Michelle Obama…

Well since Michael Obama is trending, it’s time to pull out this little nugget. (Joan Rivers died during plastic surgery shortly after this interview).

Don’t forget just after outing Michelle Obama as a transgender, Joan Rivers went in for a “routine” surgery and died.

 

Truth : Joan Rivers Was NOT Killed For Insulting The Obamas

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to disparage Barack and Michelle Obama by misogynists and Republicans of the MAGA, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Joan Rivers Made Comments On July 1, 2014

First, let me just establish some context about Joan Rivers’ comments on the Obamas.

On Monday, June 30, 2014, Joan Rivers officiated an impromptu gay wedding between two of her fans at a bookstore in New York City.

The next day, a reporter approached her on the street, and asked her about officiating that gay wedding, before asking whether the US will ever see a gay president:

Reporter : Do you think that the United States will see the first gay president or the first woman president?

Joan Rivers : Well, we already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down. You know Michelle is a tranny.

Reporter : I’m sorry, she’s a what?

Joan Rivers : A transgender. We all know. It’s OK. 

Reporter : Oh my gosh!

The viral video wrongly claims that she made the comment on July 4, 2014. She made it on July 1 – the day after she officiated the impromptu gay wedding.

It was only reported on July 3 by The Hollywood Reporter, before being picked up by mainstream media on July 4.

Fact #2 : Joan Rivers Called It A Compliment

After the story was picked up by CNN, her representative released this statement that Joan Rivers appears to have written:

I think it’s a compliment. She’s so attractive, tall, with a beautiful body, great face, does great makeup. Take a look and go back to La Cage Au Follies (sic). The most gorgeous women are transgender.

Stop it already … and if you want to talk about ‘politically correct,’ I think this is a ‘politically incorrect’ attack on me because I’m old, Jewish, a woman and a ‘hetty’ – a heteosexual …

And I plan to sue the reporter who, when he turned off his camera, tried to touch me inappropriately on the ass – luckily he hit my ankle.

Read the book … if you think that’s silly, wait to (sic) you see what I say about FDR and Eleanor!

Fact #3 : Joan Rivers Died A Week After Her Endoscopy

On August 28, 2014, Joan Rivers visited her personal throat doctor, Dr. Gwen Korovin, at Yorkville Endoscopy for an appointment to check out her sore throat and hoarseness of voice.

A gastroenterologist, Dr. Lawrence Cohen, who was the medical director of the clinic at that time, performed a laryngoscopy and saw something of concern with her vocal cords.

Dr. Gwen Korovin then started a second laryngoscopy to view Joan Rivers’ vocal cords, even though she was not certified by Yorkville Endoscopy, and only authorised to observe Cohen. It was during that procedure that her vocal cords began to swell, cutting off oxygen to her lungs and leading to a cardiac arrest.

At 9:40 AM, someone at the Yorkville Endoscopy dialled 911, reporting a patient in cardiac arrest. 5 minutes later, the New York Fire Department response team arrived at the clinic, and found that CPR was already being performed on Joan Rivers with a defibrillator attached and a breathing tube inserted into her windpipe.

The firefighters took over the CPR efforts, until an ambulance from Mount Sinai Hospital arrived at the clinic two minutes later at 9:47 AM. The ambulance crew joined in the CPR efforts, as a second NYFD unit with Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) arrived with a supervisor.

By 9:50 AM, ten rescue workers were on site, trying to revive her. She was rushed to the Mount Sinai Hospital, where she died a week later, on September 4, 2014.

Fact #4 : Joan Rivers Autopsy Revealed Her True Cause Of Death

The claim that she was killed by the Obamas was dispelled with the release of her autopsy results and cause of death on Thursday, October 16, 2014.

According to the New York Medical Examiner, Joan Rivers died from a complication of the [endoscopic] procedure she underwent, causing “anoxic encephalopathy due to hypoxic arrest” that occurred “during laryngoscopy and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with propofol sedation for evaluation of voice changes and gastroesophageal reflux disease.

The classification of a death as a therapeutic complication means that the death resulted from a predictable complication of medical therapy.

In other words, Joan Rivers suffered from laryngospasm – a spasm of her vocal cords that blocked air from reaching her lungs, resulting in a loss of oxygen supply to her brain.

Even if the Obamas wanted to kill Joan Rivers, it would be quite impossible for them to trigger laryngospasm during a procedure with multiple medical personnel in the room.

Fact #5 : Michelle Obama Isn’t Transgender

The claims that Michelle Obama is a transgender woman who was born a man is not only false, it’s absurdly ridiculous, because… she suffered a miscarriage and later gave birth to two girls – Malia Obama and Sasha Obama.

For those who are wondering – transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus.

Viral photos showing Michelle Obama with a penis bulge were also proven to have been edited to falsely show that she was a transgender woman.

Was Donald Trump Queen Elizabeth II’s Favourite President?!

Was Donald Trump really Queen Elizabeth II’s favourite US President?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Donald Trump Was Queen Elizabeth II’s Favourite President?!

US conservatives and fans of Donald Trump have been excitedly promoting the claim that the former US President was Queen Elizabeth II’s favourite!

It started, at least in a big way, when Newsmax anchor Greg Kelley made the claim while announcing the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Greg Kelley also claimed that “this was the most genuine relationship with an American president that she had” and that “the affection was mutual“.

Donald Trump Was Unlikely Queen Elizabeth II’s Favourite President!

This is really nothing more than hyperbole, if not fake news, by Greg Kelly and Trump fans… and here are the reasons why.

Fact #1 : Queen Elizabeth II Met 13 US Presidents

First, let us establish some basic facts about Queen Elizabeth II and US Presidents.

Through her long seven-decade reign, she met with 13 out of the last 14 US Presidents, starting with Harry Truman and ending with Joe Biden.

The only US President she did not meet was Lyndon Johnson, who did not visit the United Kingdom during his presidency.

Fact #2 : Queen Elizabeth II Never Expressed A Preference… Officially

Queen Elizabeth II was famous for her discretion during her official duties, and never said anything controversial about any US President.

She certainly did not mention any particular preference for any US President, at least officially.

Fact #3 : Donald Trump Repeatedly Asked Queen Elizabeth II

Of all of the thirteen US Presidents to meet Queen Elizabeth II, only Donald Trump was vain (and foolish) enough to repeatedly ask her who was her favourite President.

I’ll never forget, I’d say, “Who was your favourite President?’ And she’d say, ‘I liked them all, I liked every one of them.

Fact #4 : Queen Elizabeth II Said To Leave Indirect Clues

Much has been said about the indirect messages Queen Elizabeth II conveyed through her attire, her gifts and the decoration of the room where she met dignitaries.

For example, she notably wore yellow and had yellow flowers in her drawing room when she met with Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak on 14 July 2011.

It was seen as an indirect nod towards the Bersih movement for free and fair elections in Malaysia, which used yellow as its official colour.

In fact, anti-Najib protestors also wore yellow and carried yellow signs when they protested outside the Mansion House in London, where Najib Razak was due for a meeting with the business community there.

She never said anything controversial to Donald Trump, but there were notable hints of her displeasure :

  • She gave Trump a book, even though he was notorious for hating to read.
  • The book – a first-edition copy of The Second World War – was written by Winston Churchill – a notable anti-fascist.
  • She made remarks about the importance of alliances and International institutions, right after Trump tried to undermine several alliances and international institutions.
  • The Trumps were not invited to stay at Buckingham Palace, unlike previous Presidents, allegedly due to ongoing renovations, even though it has 775 rooms, including 52 Royal and guest bedrooms.

Fact #5 : Queen Elizabeth II Only Invited Obamas After They Left Office

While Queen Elizabeth II did not officially name any US President as her favourite, her actions suggest that it was Barack Obama.

Queen Elizabeth met then President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama in April 2009, and met them several times after that during his Presidency.

His last visit as President would be to Windsor Castle in 2016 for the Queen’s 90th birthday celebration, but it would not have been his last if the Queen had her way.

Queen Elizabeth II apparently liked the Obamas so much that she repeatedly asked her staff to invite them back after Barack Obama left office. A former employee explained it to royal author Tom Quinn :

The queen has a soft spot for Americans after meeting Barack Obama who she completely fell in love with – so much so that she has frequently asked her courtiers if they could arrange for him to come to Britain now he is no longer president.

The Queen has never invited any other US President to visit her once they left office. Only the Obamas were invited back, which speaks volumes about her regard for the Obamas.

The Queen was even photographed with Michelle Obama, with their arms around each other in 2009 – a gesture of fondness unseen with other First Ladies who met with the Queen.

If anyone can lay claim to being Queen Elizabeth II’s favourite US President, it would undoubtedly be Barack Obama, not Donald Trump.

Fact Check : Did Michelle Obama Call Women “Womxn”?!

Did former US First Lady Michelle Obama controversially called women “womxn”?

Take a look at the claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Michelle Obama Called Women “Womxn”!

Many people are deriding former US First Lady Michelle Obama for allegedly calling women “womxn”. Some even sarcastically ask – how should we pronounce womxn?

Amongst them are Sky News Australia host Piers Morgan, who claimed that by changing the spelling of the word to womxn, Michelle Obama was deriding women, and making a mockery of the trans cause.

What makes this particularly absurd is that Ms Obama’s post was supposed to be supporting women’s rights.

Instead she’s trampled on them by pandering to a tiny minority of people who get upset when they hear a word that’s been used for centuries to describe people who aren’t men.

Many shared his video, with denigrating comments like this :

Totally disgusted! How low will she go?

Michelle Obama is not even a womxn. She’s a man. Everybody knows that.

 

Truth : Michelle Obama Did Not Call Women “Womxn”!

As much as I like Piers Morgan, he’s intentionally shit-stirring, and factually wrong. Here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Michelle Obama Did Not Use The Word “Womxn”

Michelle Obama ostensibly posted the word, “womxn” in an Instagram post on May 15, 2022 that offended Piers so much he posted a screenshot of it in his video (see screenshot above).

I went to check out Michelle Obama’s “controversial” Instagram post, but could find no reference to the word, “womxn”.

This was what she posted. See if you can spot the offending word. I could be blind…

It’s been a tough couple of weeks since we saw the leaked SCOTUS draft opinion on abortion. If it comes to pass, we may soon live in a country where millions of women — not to mention our children and grandchildren — lose the right to make decisions about their bodies and their health. Even if we knew the courts were heading toward this day, it doesn’t make the frustration, grief, and fear any less real.

But we don’t have to stand idly by while others try to turn back the clock on progress. I’m so inspired by everyone out marching today. And I know that we’re going to see so many folks carrying this energy forward to the elections in November and in every election after that.

And if any of you are questioning whether or not your vote matters, I get it. But state lawmakers are the ones who will determine whether abortion is safe, legal, and accessible in your communities. And we are the ones who determine our state lawmakers. So when you get home from marching, check your voter registration status with @WhenWeAllVote and encourage others to do the same at WhenWeAllVote.org.

There were seven slides too, but none of them had the word womxn. It is possible that one of the slides did use the word “womxn”, but has been removed.

But what’s certain is that the message that Michelle Obama wrote did NOT use the word “womxn”.

Fact #2 : Womxn Was Used In Slide She Shared

If you head over to Twitter, you will see that Michelle Obama posted a tweet on May 15, 2022 too, that included the word, “womxn” in the slide :

The leaked SCOTUS draft decision to overturn Roe v. Wade could give state lawmakers the power to strip womxn of the right to make decisions about their bodies and their healthcare. If the decision becomes final, anti-abortion laws will go into effect almost immediately in 13 states.

But again, her own message did not use the word “womxn” :

If any of you are questioning whether or not your vote matters, I get it. But remember that state lawmakers are the ones who will determine whether abortion is safe, legal, and accessible in your communities. And we are the ones who determine our state lawmakers.

In other words, Michelle Obama did not actually use the word that offended so many people, including Piers Morgan.

It was used in at least one slide that I can confirm, and another slide that I’m happy to assume existed earlier in her Instagram post, but might have been removed.

Not that there is anything wrong with the word, but it is wrong to falsely claim that Michelle Obama used it in her May 15, 2022 posts when she did not.

Fact #3 : Slides Were Created By NGO, Not Michelle Obama

It may seem obvious, but I have to say it for Piers’ benefit – the slides were created by an NGO called When We All Vote, not Michelle Obama.

If you look carefully at those slides, you can see the When We All Vote logo, with the orange check mark on the upper left corner (Instagram) or upper right corner (Twitter) of the slides.

Therefore, it would be incredibly disingenuous to credit Michelle Obama for the use of the word that Piers and anti-abortion activists find so offensive.

It’s also wrong to insert Michelle Obama’s name to the bottom of the slide (as Piers did on his show), when she was obviously not its creator.

Fact #4 : Womxn Is Not New…

The term “womxn” is not really new, having been used in writing together with the alternative version, womyn, since the 1970s!

Yes, before many of you were even born, some people had already felt that the term “woman” had sexist connotations, due to the inclusion of the word, “man”.

The term “womxn” started gaining traction in the 2010s, as a more inclusive alternative to the traditional term “woman” as it includes both trans and non-binary women.

It was even added to the dictionary in 2019 by Dictionary.com, which defined the womxn as :

a woman (used, especially in intersectional feminism, as an alternative spelling to avoid the suggestion of sexism perceived in the sequences m-a-n and m-e-n, and to be inclusive of trans and nonbinary women).

Fact #5 : Trans + Non-Binary Females Are Females Too

Trans and non-binary people who are born female do not magically lose their reproductive capabilities and/or rights.

Just because they have a different gender identity does not make their reproductive organs disappear into thin air.

They can still get pregnant, and they are most certainly affected by the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade in the United States.

Fact #6 : It Is Their Choice, Not Ours

It is also up to trans and non-binary females to determine if they want to be identified as womxn or not.

The womxn naming preference really has nothing to do with heterosexual people like Piers Morgan and me.

If women, including trans and non-binary females, prefer to be called womxn or even womyn, that is their right.

Don’t worry if you still wish to be referred to as a woman. It is up to YOU to determine which term you prefer.

And if Piers Morgan wakes up one day and demands to be known as a mxn called Pierce Morgan, I would gladly call him that.

Anti-abortion activists are doing their best to promote this womxn hoohah to divert attention from the likely overturning of Roe v. Wade, and the bigger question of the right of womxn to make their own health and reproductive choices.
