BUSTED: Trump-Loving Republican Lawmaker Caught Lying in Unhinged Rant About Obama’s Lies

A woman who called President Barack Obama a liar on CNN and said she had never been involved in politics until being energized by the candidacy of Donald Trump is in fact a far-right elected leader for the state of New Hampshire.

Susan DeLemus was elected in 2010 as a Republican to the state House of Representatives. DeLemus is a “birther,” meaning she is a conspiracy theorist who believes Obama was not born in the United States.

In 2011, DeLemus was one of the state lawmakers who fought to keep Obama’s name off state ballots because they believed he was a “treasonous liar” who wasn’t born in the States, according to the Atlantic.

“It just makes me want to throw up,” Rep. Susan DeLemus had said at the time. “Let’s just bury the Constitution now and have a funeral.”

Here she is accosting state officials about her false accusation that Obama is not a natural-born citizen.

DeLemus’ husband, Jerry DeLemus was part of the armed insurgency at Bundy Ranch in Nevada last year. He also made an unsuccessful run for sheriff. In 2012, the DeLemus couple had endorsed far-right Republican Rick Santorum.

The couple has participated in CNN panels about Trump’s 2016 candidacy in the past, but Susan DeLemus was again not identified as a lawmaker.

Here is Sue DeLemus on a CNN panel, where she says she “never had an interest in politics” until Donald Trump. “Now suddenly he is resonating.”
