I hope this is a joke. I am not good at computers so can someone tell me if this is real?

He must have a legal reason, I'd like to hear it substantiated before I make a judgement.

I apologize. I don't always agree with Snopes, but I had shared it with Justin before checking. Apologies to all.

The giveaway is .co in the URL. It's a propaganda site masquerading as ABC News.

In the list of internet country abbreviations, ".co" is Colombia.

What amazes me is how many want it to be true and just hit "send" before checking it for themselves. Thus the creators job is done and the lies keep spreading.

I especially loved "Fappy"!

Sad thing is that it would not surprise me at all if it did happen.....

I don't know that it is so much that people WANT it to be true, as it is that things in this country have degraded to the point that people have little reason to believe that it is NOT true.

I said "want it to be true" because anyone who read enough of the article to read about "Fappy" and still sent it had no interest in the "truth".

It is curious how so few people in the US really are interested in the truth.
lies are much more interesting and easier to believe.

People are no different in believing what they hear or read now then they were in the past. Good example is HG Wells radio broadcast of "The War of the Worlds" or the witch trials in New England. We just have more information today to process and make a decision on. People just want the easy, now and in the past. If it was printed in the paper, on the radio or internet, it must be the truth. Just because we are better educated does not mean many are less gullible.

And, we fail to learn from history!!
(Pet peeve of us Museum types)
I don't want to get political here, but the Forefathers' intention was not to deny religion (of almost any sort) but to not allow Congress to establish a state religion, as the British Parliament had. Prayer and the acknowledgement of a Supreme Creator is basic to many of our founding documents.
End of Rant!
We now return you to our previous program: Black Cars Matter! :-)

I don't think it can be true, the president has been on vacation for the last few days.
