Obama: “I Am Not The Lead Singer From Korn”

In a ceremony at the White House today, President Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to Florent Groberg, a former Army captain who saved several lives by tackling a suicide bomber to the ground during a 2012 attack in Afghanistan, U.S. News reports. While recovering in the hospital following the explosion, Groberg was visited by Jonathan Davis, the lead singer of Korn, but, waking up in a haze, he initially believed that he was just hallucinating. Obama jokingly referenced the story during his presentation speech: “Flo thought, ‘What’s going on? Am I hallucinating?’ But he wasn’t — it was all real. And so today, Flo, I want to assure you, you are not hallucinating. You are actually in the White House. Those cameras are on. I am not the lead singer from Korn.”

Coincidentally, in a 2014 interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis said of Obama, “I think he’s an Illuminati puppet. It just doesn’t make sense, the whole thing. The guy comes from out of nowhere, he gets made president, all this stuff starts happening…I don’t know much about it, I’m just worried about my privacy and my children’s privacy. This being America, we’re supposed to be the ‘land of the free,’ and it’s becoming a police state.” He did, however, share a clip from Obama’s speech on Instagram with the caption “Wow.”
