One Direction Responds To Those Totally Believable Harry Styles/Barack Obama Sex Rumors

6a00d8341c730253ef01bb07c2b635970d-500wiBy now, Harry Styles is as good at deflecting (or creating) cheeky gay rumors as he is at causing 13-year-old girls’ (or boys’) hearts to melt into hormonal sludge at the mere flip of his hair.

But even Harry wasn’t prepared for the recent hoax National Examiner cover story alleging a hush-hush sexual relationship with none other than President Obama.

Are you listening, Aaron Sorkin? This has the makings of the best follow-up episode of The West Wing we’ve ever seen.

The gang was asked about the affair backstage at the BBC Music Awards. Via the Gay UK:

When Harry, 20, was quizzed about the affair at last night’s BBC Music Awards he seemed unaware of the rumour replying, “I honestly have no idea what you’re talking about” before he then added, after a quick explanation: “I’ve heard some good ones in my time, but that’s interesting.”

Liam added: “Wow, it’s all getting a bit political!” Louis then joked: “So, does that give you some power in the White House then?” as Harry said: “Yeah, maybe.”

Here’s video of the bandmembers’ reactions:

Another day in the life of Harry Styles.
