In a tweet and Facebook post both published Monday, D’Souza wrote, “Which is a more dangerous infection: ‪#‎Ebola‬, or the dreams from his father?” The illustration in the Facebook post featured a photo of a virus strain and a photo of the president’s father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., a central figure in the president’s first autobiography.
