Idaho Shooter Says He’s Jesus, Obama Is Antichrist
An Idaho man charged with firing an assault rifle at the White House believed he was Jesus and thought President Barack Obama was the Antichrist.
That’s according to court documents and people who know21-year-old Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez of Idaho Falls. Reached by the AP on Thursday, Ortega’s mother said she didn’t have anything to say. She earlier told the Post Register in Idaho Falls her son has no history of mental illness. The mother of Ortega’s former fiancé says Ortega told family he believed he was Jesus Christ and that the world was going to end. An Idaho Falls computer consultant says Ortega told him that Obama was going to put GPS chips in children. Ortega was arrested Wednesday in western Pennsylvania. He faces life in prison if convicted.
