“Remove Obama or millions of Americans die,” Obama said with a laugh, quoting directly from Wayne Allyn Root’s book “The Power of Relentless”.  That book features a quoted critique from the presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump.

Rachel Maddow kicked off her 9 pm EST MSNBC show profiling Root and referring to him as the “ultimate conspiracy theorist”.  

Root had long been known as a Las Vegas sports handicapper (or tout) before becoming the 2008 Libertarian running mate to Bob Barr.  Both men have since left the Libertarian party.

Root has since become a sort of surrogate for the real estate billionaire and even introduced Trump during a January event. 

“He will go to Washington and break it,” Root said of the Republican candidate.
