Stapp, who has been in and out of drug treatment programs and psychiatric wards over the years, recently told his family that he believed he was a CIA agent on a mission to kill President Barack Obama. He then fled his home, prompting his family to call 911, report his claims, and ask that he be recommitted to a hospital. The incident came less than a week after Florida police released Stapp from a 72-hour psychiatric hold.
TMZ acquired audio of Stapp’s family’s 911 call, in which a woman says, “He thinks he’s part of the CIA. He thinks they’re trying to kill him, and he has a bunch of paperwork in his backpack that he’s a CIA agent and he supposed to assassinate Obama.”
This tweet just about sums it up:
While this one, well…no.

The White House has yet to comment on Stapp’s claims.
