Matt Drudge, founder of the Drudge Report, joined radio host Alex Jones for a rare interview on Tuesday during which he spoke about his latest conspiracy theory.
He said that the Obama administration began referring to the Islamic State as “ISIS” so that the group would be confused with Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), the former chairman of the House Oversight Committee.
“We never heard of ISIS until recently,” Drudge told Jones. “Do you know it was designed to be confused with Darrell Issa?”
According to Drudge, President Obama decided to do that “because Darrell Issa was the enemy at the time of this administration.” He noted that Obama could have been impeached over the IRS scandal, which Issa investigated as chairman.
“They came up with the name ISIS to be confused with Darrell Issa. I’m really being honest with you,” Drudge said.
Drudge did not appear in the video of Jones’ interview with him, and Jones said that Drudge stood in the dark in the studio with a handheld microphone.
