Root is a right-wing radio host, Trump–obsessed sycophant, and radical conspiracy theorist who has repeatedly claimed that the 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas was carried out by ISIS and asserted that DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered on the orders of high-ranking Democrat officials.
Root has said that “most straight men” are scared of transgender people, claimed that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are gay, declared that liberals were responsible for the overdose death of former Fox News host Eric Bolling’s son, and suggested that Mollie Tibbets was somehow responsible for her own death because she foolishly went running outside.
Root used his daily radio program last year to warn men never to date a liberal woman, because “she’ll cut your pee-pee off“:
Earlier this year, Root went off on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, declaring that Mueller is “a little pervert” who is motivated by “penis envy“:
“Robert Mueller has probably never had sex in his life,” Root said. “I know he has never had sex with a beautiful woman. Did you ever see the angry look on Robert Mueller’s face? Robert Mueller needs sex badly and he is so jealous that Donald Trump was a billionaire playboy and obviously had sex with the most beautiful women in the world.”
“Robert Mueller has penis envy,” he continued. “This is so obvious. This was high school, guys. In high school, there were handsome guys, and then there were handsome guys who were jocks, and then there were handsome guys who were jocks and had rich fathers. And that is Donald Trump. And then all the little nerds like Robert Mueller, who had never had sex in their whole lives, they hated the jocks, they hated the handsome guys, and they really hated the jocks who were handsome guys who were rich. This guy, Muller, has never had sex with a beautiful woman, so he hates Trump with a passion.”
“The greatest president in modern history, a man is trying to take him down who is a pervert,” Root added. “Robert Mueller is a pervert. He probably sits home and watches porn. He has probably never had a girl in his whole life, a beautiful woman, so he sits and watches images and then he realizes there is someone like Donald Trump who is living every man’s fantasy … [Mueller] doesn’t even know what sex feels like. Robert Mueller is an ugly lawyer, he’s got nothing going for him.”
“Mueller is a little pervert,” Root continued to rant. “Mueller is vicious, Mueller is disgusting, Mueller is a pervert. Can you imagine what he does at home at night? Who knows what he does, watching his computer images of Donald Trump and beautiful women. I can just guess what Mueller is doing in the dark, with the light of the screen glaring on him inside is office at 12 midnight. Quote me, Robert Mueller: You’re a pervert, you’re a loser, you’re ugly, you have never had a beautiful women in your life and you’re jealous of Donald Trump. It is all so clear now.”
“It’s penis envy,” Root declared triumphantly. “Mueller’s is smaller than Trump’s.”
This is the man that Trump reportedly “personally requested” open his rally tonight.
