Hustler publisher endorses Obama, says "iodine deficiency" is the cause of religion.
In an interview with Reihan Salam for Vice magazine, pornographer Larry Flynt reveals that he's now a hardcore supporter of President Obama's just two years after calling Obama an "ineffectual wimp" for giving in too much to Republicans.
"I think President Obama has overperformed," Flynt says. "He got handed on his platter when he became president more than any president in history ever had to deal with.... I think he's done a marvelous job."
In the wide-ranging interview with Salam, Flynt talks about his brief but "profound" religious experience in the 1970s, as well as his views on why pornography is good for society.
"I did have a very profound religious experience," Flynt said. "I sought out a psychiatrist immediately after it happened to me."
"This is largely thought to be because of an iodine deficiency in your diet," Flynt recalls his psychiatrist telling him.
"Do you think that more devoutly religious Americans would be less devoutly religious if they just ate more salt?" Salam asks Flynt.

I know if I was a politician I would want a pornographer’s endorsement...oh yeah! /sarc
He’s a real piece of work, but then again, so are most of Obama’s supporters:
Flynt has been married five times. He married his fourth wife, Althea, in 1976 and they remained married until her death in 1987. He re-married Elizabeth Berrios in 1998. He has four daughters and a son.
He was an evangelical Christian for one year, converted in 1977 by evangelist Ruth Carter Stapleton, the sister of President Jimmy Carter. He stated that he became “born again” and that he had a vision from God while flying with Stapleton in his jet. He continued to publish his magazine, however, vowing to “hustle for God.” He has since declared himself an atheist.
Flynt disowned his eldest daughter, Tonya Flynt-Vega, after she became a Christian anti-pornography activist. In her 1998 book Hustled, she claims that Flynt sexually abused her as a child, often calling her names. Flynt has denied the charges, claiming to have passed a polygraph test and to be in possession of a tape recording of his daughter admitting she made up the accusations for money.
In 1994 Flynt bought a Gulfstream II private jet, which was used in the movie The People vs. Larry Flynt. In 2005, he replaced it with a Gulfstream IV. He currently[when?] resides in the Hollywood Hills.
Flynt has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
why do we still hear from this asshole
Thanks, but I don’t need any more validation of who the Left serves.
What? No Neurosyphilis Dementia?
To prove he is serious, Larry should turn over the day to day operation of his livelihood to BO - in Jan 13.
BO should have him broke within a couple of days then we can sit back and watch the fireworks.
Actually Larry has done more for the economy than Obama.
Flynt’s legs aren’t the only thing crippled on this pervert, his mind is dead too.
I thought the experience was when someone shot his b*lls off. Never got quite normal again, did he?
Maybe the editor of Vice used the SF Board of Supervisor's OUIJA BOARD to contact him... :)
2 nutcases interviewing each other = trash!!
in medical terminology, a stroke.
Or drug overdoes!
Hey big ears... tax this MF’er at 99%!

One Word. IDIOT.
Think Lincoln. The Nation was being torn apart. He over saw brother fighting against brother.

When he does it will be hard to tell!!!
