President Obama Confirms He Doesn't Smell Like Hell

Radio personality Alex Jones said President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton "smell like sulfur."

"There's this guy on the radio. ... He said me and Hillary are demons. Said we smelled like sulfur. Ain't that something?" Obama said in front of a crowd of supporters.

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama smelled himself to make sure, despite what radio host Alex Jones claimed.

Jones said Monday: "Folks, I've been told this by high-up folks. They say, 'Listen. Obama and Hillary both smell like sulfur. ... They say, 'Listen. She's a frickin' demon, and she stinks and so does Obama.'"

He doesn't smell like hell.

"I mean, c'mon people," Obama said in front of a crowd of supporters. "And apparently there are people who believe that stuff."

But seriously, has the rhetoric in this election seemed a little out-of-hand for a while now?

"She's as crooked as they come," Donald Trump said in May.

"He is becoming ISIS' best recruiter," Hillary Clinton said in December.

"In one way, she is a monster," Trump said in August.

"You can put half of Trump supporters into what I call 'the basket of deplorables,'" Clinton said in September.

"But he made a deal with the devil. She's the devil," Trump said at a rally in August.

And that's making this election cycle feel a lot less like this:

"Democracy in a big, diverse country doesn't work if you constantly demonize each other," Obama said Tuesday.

And a lot more like this:

"Tell me, what do you do with witches?" a character inquired in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

"Burn them!" other characters responded.
