Barack Obama invited 9/11 truther, Macklemore, to the White House again to talk about drug abuse.
On Tuesday, the 33-year-old rapper who has previously said George Bush knocked down the Twin Towers, met with the president and White House drug czar, Michael Botticelli, to view an MTV documentary titled, “Prescription For Change: Ending America’s Opioid Crisis” that looks at the growing problem of opioid abuse in the country, according to the Daily Beast.

In May, the activist rapper — whose real name is Ben Haggerty — met with the president to talk about opioid abuse for the filming of the documentary that both are featured in.
“Honored to be at @WhiteHouse with @MTV to talk to @POTUS about opioid addiction,” Macklemore tweeted. “Really excited for this project.”

“I’m here with President Obama because I take this personally,” Macklemore said during the event. “I have abused prescription drugs and battled addiction. If I hadn’t gotten the help I needed when I needed it, I might not be here today.”
“And I want to help others facing the same challenges I did.”
In 2009 the rapper tweeted that “911….Bush knocked down the towers.”
