Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Frank Wuco Pushed Birther Theories, Called Pelosi a Nazi”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A senior Trump State Department adviser on arms control, Frank Wuco, has previously peddled racist Birther myths about President Barack Obama, smeared Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a “Nazi” whose Botox had worn off, and pushed Islamophobic theories that included argued for dropping tactical nuclear weapons on Afghanistan in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

According to separate CNN KFile investigations, Wuco repeatedly pushed far right conspiracy theories as a conservative pundit and radio host before joining President Donald Trump’s administration as a Homeland Security adviser in 2017. Wuco’s move to his new job working on nonproliferations issues at the State Department was revealed last month.

In the past, per CNN, Wuco “also said it would be tough for a ‘solid, practicing’ Muslim to be a good American and made unfounded claims that some Muslims in America were practicing Sharia law to create ‘Muslim land.'”

At a 2013 Tea Party event, Wuco gave a speech that criticized Obama, which prompted an outburst from the audience accusing the then-president of being a “plagiarizer,” CNN reported. Wuco then responded: “I thought he was a Kenyan!”

During a 2011 episode of his radio show, Wuco launched a vicious, personal attack against Pelosi where he called her “Nancy Nazi Pelosi” and mocked her physical appearance and compared her to the physically disfigured Star Wars villain Darth Vader.
