MORE FAKE NEWS: President Obama Sedated Following Emotional Breakdown

By September 21, 2013

Follow me on:

Meltdown in Washington: President Obama Reported Sedated Following Emotional Breakdown - NationReport.net

Folks, this is getting ridiculous. Like so much of the junk circulating via social media under the rubric of "news" these days, this story simply isn't true.

Tell your family, tell your friends, tell your enemies, tell everybody you can think of: NationalReport.net is a fake news site. Everything they publish, including the above article claiming that President Obama has suffered a nervous breakdown, is, according to their own former disclaimer page (it was deleted a couple of weeks ago without explanation), satire. And I quote:

*DISCLAIMER: National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news. Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental.

They need to buy a dictionary because they don’t seem to know the definition of satire.

Ginger, your ill-informed views are more apparent than a message broadcast over every screen in Times Square!

Gee… And I thought it was the American voter who had the break down, in 2008 and again in 2012.

Poor, sad, pathetic “liberals” (as far as I’m concerned you’re communists, not liberals) still defending the worst president to ever sit in the oval office tooth and nail. And the more he acts like a dictator the more you defend him.

JT, Amen! Caleb, excellent rebound & slam dunk off of Ginger’s lame attempt.

Fake news, or just stuff they don’t want you to find out about. Wonder how much ‘fake news’ we’re getting through the ‘traditional’ media.

Well, I see my first post never got posted. Guess they don’t want anyone to trash the garbage on traditional media.

From what I’ve read about his past drug use, he doesn’t need a “nervous breakdown” to justify sedation….or sedition for that matter.

Well, if its fake then why is he acting crazy?

Well I can see that most of the comments here are from ignorant, backwards Neanderthals who have drunk from the Tea Party Kool-Aid.

We finally have a President with some intelligence and integrity who has won 2 elections – popular vote & electoral vote (something that neither Bush or Clinton did). Hopefully he will continue to be successful in his efforts to maintain & support Democracy in this country – something that these commentators seem to know little about.

Fox-Can-Lie Lawsuit
CNN is one of the worst for lying, but they all do it. I don’t trust anything that “programs” on the flat screen and I have the same rules to live by as George Carlin – I don’t trust anything the government says.
Voting machines are rigged-court testimony

@ dimples – which god are you referring to, would they be the fallen angels? Oh look, I’m still alive and not hurt. Translation …
