No, doll. You’re not really getting unlimited food stamps for Thanksgiving.
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.
If that doesn’t strike you as fishy enough, this is from the site’s “about” page:
This website is comprised of satire and parody of current news and urban culture. For entertainment purposes only.
Sigh. Your friend wasn’t the only one.
Obama giving EVERYBODY an unlimited amount of food stamps
