Homeland Security Adviser Questioned Obama's Birth Certificate, Mocked LGBT

Frank Wuco, a White House senior adviser at the Homeland Security Department, pushed conspiracy theories about where former President Barack Obama was born and mocked the LGBT community, CNN is reporting.

His comments came during a talk radio show he hosted for several years and in guest spots on other radio shows, the news network said. CNN reviewed more than 40 hours of Wuco's radio broadcasts.

According to the news network, Wuco used his broadcasts to promote the debunked theory Obama was not born in the United States. At one point in 2011, Jerome Corsi, author of "Where's The Birth Certificate: The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President," was a guest on his show.

Wuco publicized the show on his website calling Obama's then-recently released birth certificate "a questionable document," CNN said.

In another show, he criticized actor Jamie Foxx's "Saturday Night Live" monologue. Foxx, who starred in the movie, "Django Unchained," had played an escaped slave who took vengeance on the owner of his wife.

"I kind of call this the Zimbabwe-fication of America, where it is now, we're now being encouraged to find glamour and humor in race-baiting violence against certain people, if you are a celebrated person in this country," Wuco said, referencing violence against the white population in Zimbabwe, CNN reported.

Wuco added: "I mean on, I'm talking about the 'Saturday Night Live' skit last week where he was talking about 'How black is that?' You know, 'We have Barack Obama as president. How black is that?''

Wuco also was critical of Obama's decision to end the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy used by the military regarding gay service members, CNN said.

"There is no fairness in this issue," Wuco is quoted by CNN. "In fairness — to me — you know, the burden now falls on the straight member of the military to be, you know, stable, steady, mature enough to handle the very likely possibility that he is going to be the object of another man or a woman's desire while he is, you know, sharing you know, shower facilities."

Tyler Houlton, acting press secretary at DHS, told CNN: "Mr. Wuco works every day to keep the American people safe by helping to implement the president's security-focused agenda, including raising the global bar for vetting and screening of potential terrorists. Years-old comments cherry picked from thousands of hours on the air have no bearing on his ability to perform his job for the American people."

In the past, Wuco had come under fire for comments he made regarding Muslims and Islam, a religion he views as an inherent threat to Western civilization, HuffPost reported.
