MSNBC analyst Toure, who is a 9/11 truther, appeared Friday on the News Nation show to denounce Rick Perry as a birther. Speaking of the Republican presidential candidate, he slammed, “…I see Trump and the other birthers, Perry, virtually going to the White House and knocking on the door saying can we see your documentation to make sure you are actually an American?”

It’s odd that MSNBC would bring on Toure, who believes in a fringe conspiracy theory, to assert that Perry believes in a fringe conspiracy theory.

Talking to host Tamron Hall, the analyst wondered why people would believe such weird ideas: “Why are we even wondering, at this point, is Obama really an American?”

On Twitter, however, Toure has engaged in paranoid conspiracies linking the September 11th attacks and the U.S. government:
