The National Examiner has forwarded a bizarre claim that President Barack Obama is a secret gay, hid his "lifestyle" from his family and had a super sexy gay affair with One Direction's Harry Styles. (He's the one we'd pick, too).

Gay Star News reports that the National Examiner ran a front page headline screaming "Obama Hid Gay Lifestyle To Be President," and saying that his "marriage to Michele is a sham."

The cover features a photo of the sexy teen sensation with an arrow pointing from Obama to Styles, and the quip, "He had sex with THIS MAN."

The members of One Direction were unaware of the claim, with Styles telling Yahoo Celebrity U.K. & Ireland that, "I honestly have no idea what you are talking about."

"I've heard some good ones in my time, but that's interesting," added Styles.

Band member Liam Payne added, "Wow, it's all getting a bit political," and Louis Tomlinson joked, "So does that give you some power in the White House then?"

"Yeah, maybe," said Styles, noting that his bandmate Niall Horan was the real Obama fan, saying, he would "be a bit jealous" if the rumor was true.

The Inquisitr reported that Horan gushes about the First Family in their book, "Who We Are."

"We also met Michelle Obama, and I have to say she was unbelievable," said Horan. "Her daughters were lovely too. They're the most humble people ever and were made to be the President's daughters. I'm a huge Obama fan -- I even have a statue of him in my back garden." (We're guessing 'back garden' isn't a euphemism).

Maybe the tabloids should have fabricated a secret gay affair with POTUS for Horan, instead of Styles?

Although Styles is a strong advocate for gay rights and has said that gender is "not that important" when it comes to relationships, he says the gay rumors aren't true.

"Bisexual? Me? I don't think so. I'm pretty sure I'm not," Styles told British GQ. That doesn't mean you can't keep dreaming, fellas.
