Are You Gullible? President Obama Is Bipolar, Now Entering Depressive Phase [BREAKING NEWS]

Are you gullible? I tend to see right through jokes and it’s hard to pull a prank on me since I’m so cynical.  To the people that do catch me …it ticks me off!!

Well, here goes.  Mind you, the video below is a well executed prank declaring via the “Newsroom White House” that President Obama Is Bipolar, Has Entered Depressive Phase.  The video, released on August 17, 2009 from the FAKE Politics News Room, reported that Barack Obama was Bipolar.

I’m not sure of the comedy vs. the stigma, however, I did laugh a bit… But at first, I thought it was real!!  It wasn’t till 27 seconds into the video I heard the word “onion news” that I knew this was a joke!!  The clip talked about Obama’s health care and that he is now depressed. It has governmental-looking people giving you blow by blow socialism reports.

Yes, I like satire and fake news, but why does it have to be about mental illness…?  Well, you watch it and be the judge.
