A fake TMZ account tweeted out the pitiful rumor, which turned out to be … wait for it … a satire piece.

“It’s kind of my way of saying ‘my bad’ for the whole Obamacare-government shutdown fiasco” Said President Barack Obama to a CBS correspondent in an interview set to aire just in time for Thanksgiving day shopping on Monday, November 25.
