In the realm of political discourse, conspiracy theories are unfortunately not new. One such unfounded claim suggests that Michelle Obama is a man.
This theory, which has persisted for years, often uses unflattering photos of the former First Lady to mock and discredit her. Such actions are then cited by critics to label the Right as hateful.
This baseless rumor gained traction after Joan Rivers, in 2014, made an off-the-cuff remark suggesting Michelle Obama was trans when questioned about the possibility of a gay U.S. president in the future.
