Jesus take the wheel, literally:
An Idaho man charged with trying to kill President Obama claims he is the second coming of Jesus Christ. Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez was arraigned Thursday in Pittsburgh. He allegedly fired nine shots at the White House last Friday with an assault rifle. One bullet hit a window in the 2nd floor living quarters. The president wasn’t there, and no one was hurt.
Ortega’s car was found abandoned nearby shortly after the shooting; an assault rifle with a scope and nine spent shell casings were found inside. Ortega-Hernandez has been quoted as calling Mr. Obama the “Antichrist.” In a video made at Idaho State University in September, he said this about himself:
“It’s not just a coincidence that I look like Jesus. I am the modern day Jesus Christ that you all have been waiting for.”
If convicted of attempted assassination, Ortega-Hernandez could face life in prison. In a 20-minute video posted by CBS Affiliate KBOI, Ortega-Hernandez claims to be the second coming of Christ, and talks about Nostradamus and receiving a “message thorough time.”
“When I first saw that, there was no doubt in my mind that the message sent through time was solely for me,” Ortega-Hernandez said.
Wow. They clearly need to lock this guy up and throw away the key.
