Way to go, Al Kamen. A post under your byline joking that President Obama acknowledged having secret sons is so outrageous, it has been taken down from Fox Nation.
Tuesday night, Obama spoke at a campaign event in Chicago and discussed some of the initiatives he was able to push forward during his first term. Among those he touted was the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act:
The first bill I signed -- a bill that said that we're going to have equal pay for equal work because I want my daughters treated the same way as my sons. (Applause.) We got that done.
The Washington Post used that comment to chuckle over the mind-bogglingly dishonest and shockingly insensitive notion that President Obama acknowledged having illegitimate sons.
Courtesy of a Washington Post blog post published under Al Kamen's byline:
Obama, according to the White House transcript, talked about "The first bill I signed -- a bill that said that we're going to have equal pay for equal work because I want my daughters treated the same way as my sons."
Sons? What sons? How many? Where? Names? Do the girls know? (More importantly, does Michelle?)
This puts Kamen out where even Fox Nation won't stay.
The website -- famous for such ludicrously offensive headlines as "Obama's Hip-Hop BBQ Didn't Create Jobs" -- quickly reposted Kamen's report. But apparently the idea that Obama's comments had revealed his secret sons was too much even for them, as the post has since been taken down:
But hey. Kamen was just asking.
