Root is known for spreading conspiracy theories and false information.
Root was a leading proponent of the conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. At one point[when?], he falsely claimed that Obama was not a student at Columbia University; in a 2012 interview with Sean Hannity, he said he believed Obama was a "foreign exchange student" there. He has repeatedly described Obama as a "Marxist, anti-American, anti-Israel, globalist, middle class-hating, Muslim sympathizer". In 2017, he claimed that Obama was gay, called him "Bathhouse Barry" and said that he had info from Obama's "friends in Chicago" about his "sordid past". In 2014, he described Obama as a "Manchurian candidate", possibly hired by the Bilderberg Group to destroy the United States and "kill all of us".
He promoted conspiracy theories around the murder of Seth Rich, and at various times suggested that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary Clinton, Donna Brazile, Bill Clinton, Eric Schneiderman and John Podesta were involved in the murder.
He may have missed a few points, but he's certainly headed in the right direction.
