Right-wing radio host: Obama an "uncircumcised philistine" for joking about Michele Bachmann

How does Rick Wiles know the president's circumcision status, pray tell?

Christian radio host Rick Wiles has come up with an interesting epithet to describe President Obama after this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner, where the commander-in-chief poked fun at former Rep. Michele Bachmann for claiming his policies would bring about the biblical End of Days.

Piling onto the right-wing blogosphere's pro-Bachmann outrage, Wiles -- he of "Ebola will actually rid us of evils such as abortion, homosexuality, promiscuity and godlessness" fame -- resorted to ad hominem attacks on the president, referring to Obama as an "uncircumcised philistine." He also criticized reporters who attended the event, before proceeding to recite scripture.


"Last weekend, Mr. Obama's adoring, obedient, subservient, lapdog news reporters gathered at the White House for the annual correspondents' dinner," Wiles began on the Friday edition of "Trunews." He then played a clip of Obama's joke, claiming the president "belittled" Bachmann.

"I realize most American pastors and evangelists are afraid to denounce the uncircumcised philistine in the White House," the host said, "but I'm not afraid of him."
